Jocelyn Jacobs started her career as a fine artist and transferred that love of form and color into creating outdoor spaces and gardens. Astral Gardens was founded in New York in 2010 with the aim of providing a connection to the natural world and a respite from the often hectic and noisy experience of living in Manhattan and Brooklyn. We worked with architects and interior designers to create lush rooftops, backyards, and terraces all over the city.
Now based in Los Angeles, Astral Gardens creates outdoor spaces that are an extension of the home, working our client’s values, personal lifestyle, and aesthetics. We delineate space: dining areas, planting beds, outdoor kitchens, pools, patios, pathways and fire features. We also source hardscape materials and ceramic pots.
Southern California is home to a variety of architectural idioms, and we enjoy responding to each with discernment, whether Spanish or Mediterranean Revival, Mid-Century Modern, Mid-City Contemporary, Pasadena Craftsman, Colonials or East Side Bungalows. Native Gardens have become a priority for many in recent years, and we often incorporate native species to help maintain the ecosystem here in Los Angeles. South African, Australian, Mediterranean, and desert plants all thrive in Southern California as well, and in combination can create truly unique landscapes. Ultimately, we create thoughtful spaces with intention – playfully inspiring joy or creating solace and reflection.
Astral Gardens is a firm small enough to design intimate spaces, yet experienced enough to handle complex, long-term projects. In either case, we work with architects, contractors, and irrigation specialists to implement our shared vision, helping our clients get the most out of the space they have.
