Our landscapes and lifestyles are unquestionably intertwined
At Studio Petrichor, we see the world as one interconnected, interdependent, living system where we have a direct impact on our environment, and our environment has a direct impact on us.
We work with a diverse range of (commercial & residential) clients to help them create beautiful, functional, and ecologically-integrated outdoor environments that will inspire and delight for years to come.
Our goal is to get you into your garden, reintegrating with the natural world and evolving alongside your landscape.
We co-create spaces that strengthen relationships with Nature and each other
From our first consultation to your ongoing relationship with the biosphere, we are by your side doing meaningful work with you. Here’s what that might look like…
Do you work with municipal as well as residential?
We currently work with Pasadena Water and Power and are starting to focus on more municipal possibilities as well as our usual residential work. To discuss your municipal project please get in touch.
Can you handle all of the construction?
Our design fees do not include installation/construction. But we are happy to handle the Construction Administration on your behalf, working either with your team or our trusted installation partners.
Having experienced eyes from the design team on site, can mitigate communication issues between the client and the contractor, and prevent any legal or liability issues from arising.
This stage of a project is often flexible, but can include contractor selection, bid review, site visits for quality control, supporting communication between contractor and clients, hands-on assistance with planting, hugelkultur, or material placement and creation of maintenance manual and irrigation maps.
I only have a small space, can it still make an impact?
Absolutely. It’s not about how large your landscape is. It’s about the systems you can implement and the life that is able to thrive in it.
I’m not good at gardening, are your services for me?
90% of the success of a thriving landscape comes down to how you care for it after it is installed. While we believe that everyone can learn to create a loving relationship with their garden, if you just want to enjoy the space without worrying about the maintenance then we can provide the ongoing support you need.
Can you prepare tree reports/inventories on our projects?
We sure can. Shawn is an ISA certified arborist.
