Landscape Design Studio
About Us

Landscape Designer, Magda Lane,  has been creating unique garden environments since 2006.  Her primary focus has been transitioning and transforming existing garden spaces into more beautiful and sustainable environments to serve her clients’ needs.

Magda incorporates beautiful, low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plantings using combinations of natives and new hybrid plants.  Her gardens combine texture, color and fragrance to attract birds, butterflies, and wildlife.  She employs sustainable design practices to include permeable surfaces to conserve and retain water, reducing runoff.  She incorporates the watershed design approach, particularly on her hillside projects, including natural storm water management and plantings to reduce erosion. 

Magda’s artistic style has been influenced greatly by her years growing up in Italy surrounded by classical music and opera, amazing architecture and art.  The LaneScapes design style incorporates clean lines, soft textures, and subtle layers of color in the spirit of an impressionist painting applied to soften or highlight the hard architectural lines of both residential and commercial spaces. 

Magda began her landscape design doing commercial projects.  She believes many multi-unit housing projects, specifically condominiums, are homes, too.  She has collaborated with architects and landscape contractors to transform these buildings' green spaces to improve plant diversity, curb appeal, water efficiencies, and architectural interest.
