Henning—Anderson specializes in garden design.
As experienced and professionally licensed Landscape Architects (CA
#1951) and Landscape Contractors (CA #548948) we emphasize a
design/build approach to our work. Gardens are living, evolving
organisms and we find that this artisan-like process serves clients
most efficiently and reliably produces a finely crafted, unique and
We seek design solutions that are appropriate—horticulturally and
aesthetically—to each context we encounter, without adherence to a
particular style or trend.
We also strive to maximize the environmental efficiency of a project,
seeking low-water use solutions, creative recycling of on-site
materials, low-impact construction and manageable maintenance
We work at all scales, from estate gardens—on sites upwards of 250
acres with wild meadows, great bosques of trees and fields of native
grasses—to small urban courtyards or streetside gardens that may
measure just hundreds of square feet.
Since 1993, our Oakland-based practice has completed projects
throughout Northern California and occasionally beyond, though our
primary focus continues to be the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
We believe that gardens provide unique settings for pleasure,
especially as serene oases from the fast pace of modern life. They
allow quiet access to beauty and nature, even as they may facilitate
active use and play.
We encourage you to give us a call.
