The thoughtful and sophisticated landscape designs of Jeff Mendoza.
By Jeff Mendoza
Artifact presents the thoughtful and sophisticated landscape designs of Jeff Mendoza. A formally trained artist, his work often reflects the natural world–depicting botanical forms with earthly palettes. He noticed this connection and opened his eponymous firm, J. Mendoza Gardens in 1987. While plants became his medium, he approached the design of a garden in the same manner he would a drawing or painting–considering form, color, texture, scale, and the overall composition. Artifact is a portfolio of Mendoza’s accomplished career tracing his various projects–whether a city terrace or a country yard–is intellectually planned for each unique environment and spatial layout.
