Landscape Design

Since 2007, The Landscape Company has worked extensively with Sara Chairez, horticulturist/designer of Chairez Landscape Design. Sara has been creating beautiful landscapes in Santa Cruz County for more than 24 years.

Sara Chairez, Landscape DesignerA California native plant herself, Sara began her career in the retail nursery business developing an intimate knowledge of plants and the environment. Pursuing her passion of designing dream landscapes, she went on to study horticulture and landscape design. That passion can be seen in the mostly native, low- water, low-maintenance, yet elegant, landscapes she creates.

With vast experience working with the many microclimates found in the Santa Cruz and Monterey region, Sara provides landscape and garden consulting, site analysis, conceptual, preliminary, and/or colored blueprint design services. Her services include plant selection, layout and oversight from concept to completion. Additionally, Sara offers personal shopping for plant material and containers for home, office, deck or patio.

Specialty designs include: custom-themed and custom-container gardens; butterfly and hummingbird gardens; drought and deer resistant gardens; pond and bog gardens with water features; succulent, native, Mediterranean and exotic gardens; and fragrant and colorful gardens that will blossom year round.

Previously working as a volunteer for the Santa Cruz County Resource Conservation District, Sara gained broad knowledge of the soil types that maximize plant growth and reduce or control erosion. While there, one of her most memorable jobs was writing a monthly column, “Down to Earth,” for the Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau newsletter.

Other volunteer positions include: Board of Directors-Treasurer for the California Association of Nursery and Garden Centers (former CAN); docent for Año Nuevo State Reserve and serving with Love, Inc., in the Santa Cruz area.
