Edible and Native Garden Design

At Sustain With Me, we specialize in creating versatile edible gardens and California native landscapes that not only enhance your space but also simplify your life. Drawing inspiration from the principles of food forests, our designs integrate perennial plants in a system that mimics natural ecosystems, making them incredibly self-sustaining. These landscapes, whether featuring lush, untamed edible gardens or the resilient beauty of native flora, are crafted to require minimal upkeep while providing a bountiful, nearly effortless yield of fresh produce. From the tidy elegance of neatly constructed planters to the robust diversity of native plant settings, we offer a range of options to suit your style and environmental goals. Embrace the joy and ecological benefits of growing your own food and nurturing native species with our expertly designed gardens.


"We hired Amelia the owner of Sustain with Me, to help us organize our garden and to teach us how to plant and grow some of our own food for fun and sustainability. She built us a beautiful custom-raised garden box for our tomatoes and peppers that we'll be able to use for many years to come. It fit our unique unused space, gave us a lot of extra room to plant, and was filled with fresh organic dirt. This way, we know exactly what our food is being grown in. She suggested plants that would work for our local climate and available sun, and we ended up with a ton of delicious strawberries and three different kinds of lettuce. She shopped for our baby plants and installed them for us. That was last summer. This spring she'll be coming back to build us another planter and to add some new crops that we didn't get around to trying last year. We're more confident gardeners now, and plan to have an ongoing relationship with Sustain With Me!."
