Lisa Bauer is an multiple award winning landscape designer who has owned and operated Chartreuse Landscape Design since 2009. Before working in horticulture she owned and operated a textile design and clothing company for 12 years. She has combined her art & design background with her extensive knowledge of plants and horticulture. The desire to create and be surrounded by beauty and a love of nature, inspired her career in landscape design. “I am fortunate to be surrounded by intense physical beauty everyday at work. The forms found in nature are works of art in and of themselves”. She also enjoys maintaining relationships with her clients and their gardens. “I am always available for ongoing horticultural advice or garden coaching. I love to see gardens as well as their caretakers change and develop over time.”
Chartreuse Landscape Design works with the best nurseries, installers and arborists and is committed to long-term garden health and environmental sustainability.
Ms. Bauer holds a Technical Arts degree in Landscape Design and a certificate in Ornamental Horticulture from Edmonds Community College. She is a Washington Certified Professional Horticulturist, having passed the exam administered by the Washington Nursery and Landscape Association. In addition she has a BA in International Studies from the University of Washington.
Bauer maintains memberships in The Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD), the Washington Nursery & Landscape Association (WSNLA) and Northwest Horticulture Society (NHS). "I believe in ongoing education in order to stay current in the best practices, which I can then pass onto my clients."
