WHY CHOOSE Jean Nordstrom Landscape Design?


Jean has been designing, installing and maintaining a wide variety of garden types for over 15 years.

The plants ranged from subtropical fruits, bamboos, succulents, cycads to all types of perennials. Jean understands soil, soil amendments, light conditions and irrigation requirements.

Jean Nordstrom Landscape provides you with an enjoyable, artistic garden design based on a realistic approach to installation and maintenance. Jean works closely with clients to achieve that end result.


Her gardens are designed for you to enjoy. Whether you are looking for a “hands on" type of experience or you just want to relax and enjoy the plants, butterflies and birds.


Furthermore, improved gardens will help increase the value of your home.

Over the last 6 years Jean has been designing and installing landscapes in San Diego County. While specializing in drought tolerant gardens, she does have the skill and experience to cater to client’s specific wishes and needs.

There are many elements that can be used in garden design. Specific elements are a way to personalize your garden experience. Adding features to your garden helps to break up repetition of textures and colors, can draw attention to structural focal points and brings balance and harmony to your design. Using paths, low walls, dry riverbeds, specimen plants, large boulders and water fountains are ways to add featured elements to your garden.

After installation is complete, we can walk through your landscape together to explain growth habits of new plants and answer any additional questions regarding the new landscape design. Jean will be glad to follow through with a scheduled visit to make sure everything is growing as you expected. Succulent, perennials and drought tolerant plants of many colors, sizes and textures can offer you enjoyment throughout the entire year here in Southern California. By selecting plants native to California, you will be providing many birds and butterflies a natural, native habitat. With all the colors and fragrances your new landscape will offer, you will be able to enjoy your new garden year round.

Magical Transformation in Del Mar, CA

Barry R, Del Mar

"When  we recently bought our home in Del Mar, the area of the lot around the home was almost devoid of plants and landscaping. We were referred to Jean and she came in and turned a "sows ear" into a "silk purse". Jean was able to carry out the theme of other areas of the property and create a truly magnificent setting, so now our home site is strikingly beautiful with many succulents and environmentally friendly landscaping. She is truly an artist, and she and her subcontractors performed magic on our property"

Lifeless Garden Transformation in Cardiff, CA

Robert M. of Cardiff, CA

"My garden was a lifeless patch of lawn and shrubs which required a lot of water. Jean and her co-workers were referred to me by friends in Rancho Santa Fe who had had a fantastic garden installed, which was amazing. The garden which was created for me was similarly stunning. The plants are gorgeous; the design simple, but deliberate. I love watching the way the look of the garden changes throughout the day and that it now attracts all sort of butterflies and bees. It, truly is a work of art… and the fact that it uses far less water than before is a wonderful bonus."

A Garden More Beautifully Envisioned in Del Mar, CA

Jan & Dave, Del Mar, CA

"We adore our garden and get pleasure from it everyday! We can honestly say that it is even more beautiful than we envisioned, and it is common for neighbors walking down the street to stop and admire it. Jean was wonderful to work with....extremely professional and, at the same time, very sensitive to our wants and taste. Besides designing our lovely, environmentally-friendly garden from scratch, Jean oversaw the work every step of the way, including doing much of the work with her own hands. Her expertise, presence, and availability were greatly appreciated. We couldn't be happier!"

More Testimonials

BB in Del Mar, CA

"It's always a pleasure to work with Jean, as she is a very hard worker and has good ideas for making my garden attractive and easy-care."

Jodi in San Marcos, CA

"Working with Jean was a pleasure. She is super experienced in the field and came highly recommended. I have never done any landscaping before, so she was able to help me turn my very vague ideas into reality. Jean was honest about what was best for my space (child and dog friendly, drought resistant, easy upkeep, etc.), very respectful of our budget, and excellent about timely communication. She was very flexible and trustworthy. I would recommend her to any friend or family member in a heartbeat!"
