Architect Visit: Growsgreen Landscape Design in San Francisco

July 5, 2011

Beth Mullins of Growsgreen Landscape Design (a Remodelista Architect/Design Directory member) attributes her style of "modern organic ambience" to her atypical background in science and art. In her outdoor compositions (or "3-D collages"), Mullins uses alternative materials mixed with textural plant combinations to create evocative vignettes. We especially like this rooftop garden in San Francisco, where Mullins uses layering techniques to make the most out of a small space; to see more of her work, go to Growsgreen Landscape Design.
