I’m happiest when I’m breathing fresh air, soaking up the sun and have my hands in the dirt. I have a true love for gardening and garden design, whether that be a container garden, a patio or a full tilt landscape install. At Grit and Grace you’ll find full service garden design with or without maintenance, that includes irrigation, hardscape and masonry, residential and commercial.
In my little garden shop located in the center of the Design District in Solana Beach you can find a wonderful assortment of succulent container gardens, planted in “one of a kind” ceramics from local artisans like Sherry McClune of Room to Fly, Jeff Stewart of Human Hands pottery and Susan Aach of Susan Aach Pottery. Planted driftwood, chicken feeders and other vintage and modern containers. Don’t think we have what you want? Bring in your own container and we’ll plant it for you.
We carry a beautiful line of patio furniture, Fermob, from France. A perfect way to complete your outdoor living area and add a pop of color. Fermob has 24 colors to choose from so there’s something for everyone. If you already have your patio furniture, maybe you’d like one our imported outdoor rugs. Mad Mats come to us from Thailand and are made out of recycled polypropylene. They’re mold and mildew resistant, UV treated and our clients get 3 to 4 years of use out of their purchase.
You’ll also find garden gifts, air plants, terrariums and accessories like fade resistant pillows with colorful patterns from Sea by Day, another local business.
I have a knowledgeable and personable staff and we offer classes and private parties, small events and weddings to include succulent bridal bouquets, boutonnieres, table arrangements and corsages.
