"Sixteen years ago, Marlene laid out and designed our landscaping. Today she is still doing the gardening and management of the project. She is a take charge person who has been a pleasure to work with and is innovative and helpful with ideas. Visitors are always complementing us about the garden and bring their friends to see it."
– G.V. McKeever San Anselmo, CA
"Marlene sees the garden as one component of a much broader landscape, nature itself. Her work reflects her sensitivity to the total environment and to it she brings experience, skill, creativity and commitment."
– Larry Norton San Anselmo, CA
"Marlene has been managing our garden for 15 years. What was once a boring and uninteresting landscape, has been transformed into a beautiful jewel box of a yard for which we are regularly complimented. Marlene's knowledge of California native plants enabled us to have a garden that is not only beautiful but is environmentally appropriate through its use of flora which require lower amounts of water. I would heartily recommend Marlene to anyone."
