It was in 1999 that Marianne Simon left her cushy job with MGM to start her own landscape business. But, her love of nature goes way back. In fact, while most kids were making mud pies, Marianne was eating them. Since then, her choice of dining venues has changed, but not her affinity to the earth. She founded her landscape design company, Poetic Plantings, with the vision of creating gardens that would nurture the spirit and nourish the earth.Since then, Marianne has received her certificate in Landscape Architecture from UCLA Extension. As part of her studies in Landscape Architecture, she also spent two and a half years with Katherine Spitz Associates, Landscape Architects, further developing her skills. In addition, she is now a G3-LA Certified Sustainable Landscape Professional and is member of Santa Monica’s Sustainable Landscape Program. Just this year, she was the winner of Santa Monica’s Sustainable Landscape Demonstration Garden contest. Her design will be built at the Santa Monica Airport this coming Fall.
