A licensed landscape architect with 18 years of professional experience, Holly Selvig designs residential pools and gardens, public parks, and playgrounds. Her education includes a B.A. in Biology from the University of South Carolina Honors College and a Master 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.
A plant lover at heart, Holly specializes in combining the science of ecosystem health with spatial functionality and artful beauty. Her children's environments inspire curiosity and a connection to nature. She excels at creative visualization and maximizing the intrinsic qualities of a site. She is adept at balancing the aesthetics of a project with maintenance and budget considerations. She also enjoys the complexity of bringing diverse groups of stakeholders together to build something great.

She is a Bay Friendly Qualified Designer and a Sonoma Fire Rebuild Advisor.
