Holly Selvig


A licensed landscape architect, Holly Selvig has 18 years of professional experience designing residential gardens, public parks, and playgrounds. She has a B.A in Biology from the University of South Carolina Honors College and a Masters of Landscape Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley. After being forged in the fire of some of the SF Bay Area's most successful landscape architecture firms, she opened her own practice in 2016. 

Influenced by her love of nature, Holly specializes in combining the science of ecosystem health with spatial functionality and artful beauty. Her children's environments inspire curiosity, discovery, and a connection to nature. Holly comes from a long line of gardeners - her grandmother was a test grower for Jackson and Perkins Roses.

Holly is a Bay Friendly Qualified Designer and a trained Sonoma Fire Rebuild Advisor with the Sonoma Marin Water Saving Partnership. She has served as a Director of the Northern California Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, a guest judge for the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show, and as an Advisory Council member of the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers. For several years, she also chaired the UC Berkeley Excellence in Landscape Design Scholarship Competition hosted by the San Francisco Garden Club.

In 2021 Holly relocated back to her home state of South Carolina and serves clients in California and the Carolinas. Her favorite plant is the Staghorn Fern.
