My Story

Welcome to Rainflower Designs! Based in Anacortes, Washington, I live here with my husband, our energetic boys, and our garden mascot, Windy. Our decision to settle in this picturesque coastal town was driven by our desire to raise our children amidst the sea, mountains, and forests that surround us.

With a Certificate in Landscape Design and Horticulture from Edmonds College and as a Skagit County Master Gardener, I am passionate about transforming outdoor spaces into a retreat cohesive with nature. I invite you to join me on a journey to bring your garden dreams to life.

Rainflower Design Principles


Respect the Land and Restore Habitat

We prioritize designs that give more than they take. This commitment is reflected in our use of recycled materials, locally sourced plants, water capture solutions, and avoidance of peat moss. Our designs aim to address habitat loss and promote biodiversity both above and below the ground. We focus on soil health, use native plants, avoid traditional lawns and opt for lawn alternatives. Our chemical-free maintenance practices further contribute to a thriving ecosystem.


Empower Land Stewards

We support and empower gardeners as land stewards through intelligent designs, consultations, maintenance assistance, and education. Our goal is to equip individuals with the knowledge and tools needed to care for their spaces sustainably.


Grow Food for All

Our designs extend beyond aesthetics to encompass the growth of food for various beneficiaries, including soil microorganisms, insects, critters, homeowners, families, and the community at large. We emphasize sustainable and regenerative food cultivation practices.


Connection to Nature

Encouraging meaningful interactions with nature and community by creating sanctuaries, natural play spaces, and communal gathering areas in our designs., allowing individuals to appreciate the beauty of the present moment while reconnecting with their wild selves.


Education and Growth

We prioritize education through garden coaching and continuous learning opportunities for our employees. This commitment ensures that our team stays informed about the latest gardening practices and can share this knowledge with our clients.



We actively contribute to our community in positive and productive ways. This includes allocating a percentage of our income to a garden fund, engaging in volunteer work, and advocating for positive climate policies. By doing so, we aim to be a force for positive change in the communities we serve.
