Catherine has been passionate about landscape and horticulture since she was a child, helping her father in the garden and drawing flowers and trees on every piece of paper she held in her hand. She served in the U.S. Navy for 5 years and navigated war ships around the world. After graduating from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Environmental Horticulture and a concentration in Landscape Design and Contracting, she worked for several high-end residential design/build companies in the Denver area, and has since founded her own design firm, Mandala Landscape. Catherine has been working with Boulder Landscape and Design since 2018, helping her clients transform their landscapes into their outdoor living dream.
Catherine specializes in the design process from initial consultation to design and project management throughout the installation. She truly enjoys building a relationship with her clients and having a hands-on approach to the installation process to ensure every detail comes to life. In addition to her knowledge of plants that thrive in Colorado, Catherine specializes in hardscape design – fire places, fire pits, shade structures, outdoor kitchens and lighting design. Using unity and balance, color, texture and form, her designs are customized to enhance the style, value, and year-round beauty of your home.
Her passions include landscape design, architecture, horticulture and making the world beautiful through creativity.
Here are several designs Catherine has done, and examples of projects she designed for and worked on with BLD.
