Amy Whist Landscape Design

Amy Whist is the founder of Whist Design, a landscape design/build company based in Pasadena, California. She has been creating California friendly, award winning gardens since 1999. Amy specializes in residential, commercial, and public landscapes and has projects in Pasadena, San Marino, South Pasadena, Altadena, Sierra Madre, Silver Lake, Hollywood Hills, Santa Barbara, Palm Desert and San Francisco. Amy focuses on sustainable landscapes using water efficient irrigation, low voltage lighting, permeable and natural surfaces, water wise plants and trees including California natives, succulents and Mediterranean natives — all climate appropriate for California.
It has been said that her gardens have a feeling of natural effortlessness combined with structure and order. It is this combination, whether in the modern or traditional style, that radiates a feeling of calm serenity and respite from the stimulation and chaos of everyday life. Something that, in her opinion, every person needs. Amy works closely with her clients, learning about what their inherent style, desires, and sensibilities are. This, mixed with the architecture of the site, her unique design sense, and vast horticultural knowledge, enables her to create a garden that reflects both the ‘Spirit of Place’ and the people who live in it.
