Hey There! I’m Rochelle Greayer. I’m a garden designer on TV and IRL. I’m also an author and entrepreneur who thinks she can save the world by teaching everyone a little something about landscape design.






Flora Grubb

Surely you have seen Flora around – She has been featured in so many of my favorite magazines and deservedly so.   She has a beautiful store in San Francisco, and impeccable taste in all things plants, pots, and garden related.  Now she has a blog…and though it has scarcely 10 posts, I am totally taken (see link at left).  Here is a bit of what Flora Grubb has been up to lately…

This courtyard garden with the concrete soaking tub and the utterly amazing wall art simply takes my breath away.

Here is a closer look at the wall piece.

The Bardessono Hotel opened recently with tremendous hype of it’s green credentials and LEED platinum certification.  Flora created this vertical tillandsia garden for the property.  It is made of of about 800 air plants and I have to agree with flora’s assessment…it looks like lots of little fireworks.

About a gallon of water is needed to mist the plants and the run off is less than one cup. Amazing.
