Argia Designs joins sustainability and design to create outdoor areas that are beautiful and truly green.




Plant design

We work with a sustainable, California native, and Mediterranean climate plant palette that reduces water use, creates habitat and is climate appropriate.

Rain Gardens

Designing gardens that capture and make use of our natural rainfall to reduce runoff pollution and recharge your soil and groundwater with this precious natural resource. 



Creating habitat for humans and wildlife through plant and design palettes that provide food and water, nesting material and shelter for local wildlife and beautiful, comfortable outdoor living spaces for humans. 

What we do.

We provide consultation services to homeowners, contractors and business owners who are looking to create a more sustainable, California and watershed friendly vision for their garden and landscape areas.

We design outdoor living spaces to help connect to nature and tune out the noise of day to day life; we specialize in California native and sustainable plant palettes that both reduce pollution and create habitat for wildlife and humans alike; and we provide consulting services to those looking for a more sustainable approach to garden and landscape maintenance.
