Landscape Architect for Marin, Napa, and Sonoma Counties
Catlin Landscape Architecture serves high-end residential clientele in Marin, Sonoma, and Napa Counties, and throughout Northern California. The landscape designs I create integrate the needs, desires and expectations of my clients. For every client, I utilize the opportunities presented by each site, recognizing and offering solutions for site-specific challenges and limitations. In addition to a comprehensive site analysis and master plan, I offer preliminary evaluation with any jurisdictional agency (city, town, county) to ascertain project feasibility, site constraints or any other critical design determinant.
Landscape Architecture — Beautiful, Practical
My landscape designs are first and foremost, beautiful. Your outdoor area isn't just a "yard", it's an outdoor living space, an extension of your home, a personal retreat, and a place to share with family and friends. I pay attention to how you plan to use your property and offer considerations unique to Northern California — native plantings for seasonal drought, permeable surfaces to reduce runoff, defensible space for fire safety, and deer-resistant landscapes. No matter how you plan to use your outdoor area — entertaining guests "in" the outdoor kitchen, doing laps in an infinity swimming pool, or simply relaxing under a vine-covered pergola, I can help you realize your landscaping dreams.
Jim Catlin's Personal Approach
I am personally involved in each design project and approach each one with inspiration and passion to meet and exceed your expectations.
I rely upon over twenty years of experience in landscape design and the construction process to produce design solutions that satisfy both aesthetic and practical needs and are feasible and sustainable, giving you a solid investment in the life of your landscape.
Landscaping That Meets Expectations
During the design process you'll see visual representations of your project so you know just what to expect. Beautifully-detailed and easy-to-understand hand graphics and precision AutoCAD (computer graphics) drawings are created for every project.
