Kiesel Design works closely with clients to help realize their visions for the site, schedule, program and budget. The landscape designs are structured to activate spaces in multiple dimensions that engage the senses, conserve energy, resources and also celebrate the native environment and architecture. Whether the project is a small garden in an urban space, an office complex or an expansive park, each unique expression evokes a passion for outdoor living. For more information, contact Jack Kiesel at (805) 642-7708 or visit his website. (Jack’s own residential garden is a wild garden designed to attract birds with locally collected natives from Ojai, Ventura and the Channel Islands.)
L.A. Native Design is dedicated to the design of sustainable, functional, and environmentally friendly outdoor spaces.
