Ability to see the big picture and know the importance of every player, detail, and decision.



After graduating from the University of California, Davis with a Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Architecture, Bliss had the opportunity to work for private architecture/engineering firms, an environmental consulting firm, and a City Parks and Recreation Department.  Depth and knowledge gained through those career choices included designing parks/open spaces/trail systems, facilitating community workshops, developing endangered species habitat restoration plans, and designing custom residential landscapes.  While all of these experiences were so valuable, it was custom residential design that she was most passionate about.  And even more so today, it remains her joy.


Transforming the perception of a home having a "front and back yard" to one which has carefully woven gardens to play, entertain, and rest.


Capturing the essence and lifestyle of each client to blend seamlessly with the needs of the garden.  Creating hand-drawn and rendered sketches and plans.
