About Linda Bresler

I have been a landscape designer for many years. I have three horticultural and landscape design certificates; from George Washington University, Cuyamaca College, and Howard Community College. Before I became a landscape designer, I was a school teacher with Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from the University of Pennsylvania.

I live on two acres in Poway, CA with my family where I grow all kinds of plants. I have personally grown most of the plants that I use in my landscape designs so that I know how they perform, and which are the best to use in low-water, low-maintenance situations.

One of my colorful, low-water, low-maintenance landscapes designs has been chosen as the Grand Prize Winner of the 2012 Garden of the Year contest sponsored by San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles magazine.

I have had articles published in the San Diego Floral Association’s California Garden magazine (July-August, 2010), the San Diego Horticultural Society’s Let’s Talk Plants newsletter (every other month since 2006), and the Poway Chieftain (March, 2009) on drought-tolerant plants.

I have also been the Chairperson for the annual Spring Garden Tour sponsored by the Lake Hodges Native Plant Club from 2009-2012.

I have given talks to a number of garden groups, rotary clubs and the San Diego Botanical Garden on drought-tolerant plants and succulents.
