About Susan

Susan Morrison is a landscape designer, garden writer, and Master Gardener based in Northern California. Her design philosophy is simple: to create beautiful, sustainable gardens that fit her clients’ lifestyle. In addition to writing for traditional media publications such as Fine Gardening, Susan blogs about her life as a garden designer and shares her challenges and successes as a home gardener at Blue Planet Garden Blog.

An early convert to the value of social media, she connects with gardeners from all over the world via Twitter and Facebook, and is a founding member of the Lawn Reform Coalition and the Garden Designers Roundtable. As a Master Gardener and Bay-Friendly Qualified Design Professional, Susan is active in the gardening community and speaks regularly on sustainable design principles. She is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) and has served on the California Chapter Board of Directors.

Susan’s favorite part of her small suburban garden is this cozy corner. With just enough space for two lounge chairs, it’s the perfect spot for relaxing and reading on warm summer evenings.
