EXTRAORDINARY LANDSCAPING BIOGRAPHY

It started in 1999 when Jennifer answered an ad for a caretaker and accepted the position not knowing what exactly it meant to manage a 4 acre estate. Imagine finely manicured lawns and beautiful lush landscaping. However after only a few months of Jennifer’s care…plants were dying, lushness was leaving and the pool was turning green. The owner showed empathy for his caretaker and suggested taking a horticulture class at the local college in hopes to save his landscaping.

Jennifer attended horticulture classes at Cuyamaca College and discovered a whole new world filled with irrigation, hardscaping and Latin names that matched beautiful plants. She was hooked! She gained the knowledge needed to turn the property that she was care taking into a botanical paradise. Neighbors noticed the change and began inviting her over for dinner hoping to find out how they too could have a breathtaking landscape. This was the beginning of Extraordinary Landscaping.

Academically Jennifer completed landscape design, ornamental horticulture and irrigation technology from Cuyamaca College. She is a certified Irrigation Contractor through the IA and licensed through the state of California with a C27 License. Over the past 12 years, Jennifer has designed and installed hundreds of award winning landscapes ranging from small areas to large estates. The magic occurs when she visits a site for the first time and can visualize the property’s potential. Then her expert team takes over, making the design come to life. As owner of the company she actively visits installation projects and still has a hand in overseeing the design team. Her Husband Matthew just joined the company in January of 2010 as project manager.
