DIRT BEAUTY:  More Beauty Less Water

Dirt Beauty Succulents
Dirt Beauty Succulents

DIRT BEAUTY is located in Santa Monica, California. We specialize in redesigning and uplifting gardens by integrating the best qualities of an existing garden with various new elements. We install colorful, drought tolerant plants and convert all sprinklers to drip lines. Sprinklers give plants a shower, drip lines give them a bath. This not only saves water, it is also a more effective watering system. 

We incorporate boulders, river rocks, polished stones, walk-on bark, a variery of pavers, and we install sod and high-quality artificial turf.  Finally, we create beautiful, dramatic, containers for patios and hardscape areas as creative solutions to bring more beauty into our gardens.

In 2014, I transitioned from a 30-year career producing and directing films to landscape design. Six years later, I have completed over eighty landscape projects, often transforming a canvas of dirt into a sustainable, beautiful garden.  California gardens do not have to suffer because of our drought and our planet's climate change. 

My landscaping experiences and evolving knowledge affirms to me every day that it is possible for us to live well in a lovely garden with More Beauty Less Water! 
I hope we see you soon.

“Patricia is a true landscape artist and delivers far more than one can expect. Our project was massive and involved extensive soft and hardscape planning and design. Patricia and her team delivered at every level. Best of all, at each turn we found new challenges and needs, and Patricia adapted verses taking a one-size fits all approach. Landscape is the first impression for any home, and it’s important not to cut corners there. If you want a project completed and done right Dirt Beauty is the way to go”

“We hired Dirt Beauty to refresh our garden. Patricia helped us select and install drought tolerant plants, surrounding ground cover, some fruit trees, drip irrigation, and lighting. The results far exceeded our expectations. The garden is absolutely spectacular. Patricia was easy to work with, responsive, timely, and on budget. The overall cost was extremely reasonable. We give Dirt Beauty our highest recommendation.”

“We recently had the most incredible experience working with Dirt Beauty.  Our gardens are the talk of the neighborhood.  Patricia was so easy to work with as she listened to what we wanted, and easily and artistically created a beautiful garden that surpassed our initial ideas and expectations.  Her vision created magic!  We strongly recommend Dirt Beauty for anyone looking to reimagine their yard and gardens.  Five stars all the way!”
