Holly Selvig


A licensed landscape architect, Holly Selvig has over 15 years professional experience designing residential gardens, public parks, and playgrounds. She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a Masters of Landscape Architecture, and went on to work for some of the Bay Area's most successful landscape architecture firms, before opening her own practice. 

Influenced by her beginnings as a habitat restoration ecologist, 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.
