Here's What People are Saying about Sarah
Sarah brings to her teaching a unique combination of artistic talent, decades of professional experience as a licensed Landscape Architect, and a deep commitment to honoring the earth and its resources.
As a student in her Planting Design class at UC Berkeley Extension, I appreciated her generous teaching style as she shared her insights on design aesthetics and artistry in the landscape. These concepts were always grounded with the realities of technical constraints and environmental sustainability.
Years later, as a Licensed Landscape Architect myself, I regularly refer to her book The New American Front Yard – Kiss Your Grass Goodbye. It provides a simple, step-by-step guide to creating beautiful and responsible home landscapes and is an invaluable resource to professionals and home gardeners alike.

I have known Sarah since the mid 1990s. She is authentic, enthusiastic, passionate, and one of the most knowledgeable colleagues I have worked with over my 30-year career in Landscape Architecture. Extremely creative and a wonderful artist, Sarah expresses her ideas and teachings using many forms of communication. I am very excited for anyone who takes her course or the combination of courses, as you will learn a lot!
