About Pamela

Pamela Crawford is an award-winning, nationally known landscape designer and author of 12 best-selling gardening books. She currently researches and writes books about container gardening. She also designs planters for Kinsman Company. Previously, Pamela designed over 1800 landscapes in Palm Beach County. Their beautiful designs are routinely covered by newspapers, national magazines and television.

Pamela has a Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture, a post-graduate four year degree. Her goal is to look for ideas that are easy, gorgeous, and long-lasting for all gardeners.

Services include design and installation of landscapes, patios, pools, container gardens, outdoor kitchens, and furniture in Palm Beach County, including Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Palm Beach, Wellington, Palm Beach Gardens, and Jupiter.

1. Personalized Design Process

Pamela’s work is about creating outdoor spaces that are highly personalized for her clients. She has developed a landscape design system that allows her to find out what style will fit each client’s personal taste range. The system involves a series of meetings with her clients as the design progresses in order to design a custom landscape that totally fits their style.

2. Personalized Landscape Installations

Pamela meets her clients when the landscape installations are taking place. Before the plants are installed, the plants and planters are put in their intended places so the client can get an understanding of what the landscape will actually look like before the final landscape design installation. Pamela consults with her clients on any changes they may want before she gets the “go ahead” for the actual installation.

“When we set up the actual plants or planters in their intended spaces before the actual installation, my clients are allowed an opportunity to get a clear visualization of what the final landscape design will look like. We don’t install the landscape until our clients are completely satisfied.”

3. Landscape Design Excellence and Versatility

Pamela was recognized for design excellence with the prestigious Torch Award as an outstanding alumnus from the School of Architecture at Florida International University, the only University in the continental United States to offer subtropical landscape architecture. National magazines, television, and newspapers routinely recognize Pamela’s work. Pamela is educated in all landscape styles including clean-lined, modern gardens, and lush, tropical landscape designs.

4. Landscape Color

Pamela loves garden color so much that she wrote the book on it: Best Garden Color for Florida! She tested 2500 plants over a 20-year period to see which ones gave the most color for the longest period of time with the least amount of care. With this type of knowledge and experience Pamela is able to offer her clients unparalleled beauty, endurance, and dependability when it comes to their plant color choices.

5. Landscape Design with Planters

After writing five books on container gardening Pamela learned that the planter was just as important as what was planted in it. She worked closely with the major importers of glaze pottery to make sure each book had the most up-to-date styles. Pamela’s extensive experience means her clients are exposed to thousands of unique, top quality choices when it comes to pottery.

6. Updating Pools, Outdoor Living Areas, and Driveways

Pamela updates pools, paths, and driveways with the latest natural stone, porcelain pavers, brick, or concrete pavers. Pamela works with an outstanding contractor and often changes the original design to create more flow throughout a property or more space for outdoor living.

7. Outdoor Furniture & Accessories

Pamela harmonizes the design of outdoor furniture and accessories with the design of indoor furni- ture creating an atmosphere where the indoor space flows seamlessly into the outdoor space. Pamela offers a wide range of outdoor furniture including moderately-priced to high-end.
