A little background...  

GBK Designs has been designing and overseeing garden installations for nearly twenty years. Karen Soracco, founder and designer, began landscaping in Southern California discovering how to create garden solutions in a very arid climate with severe water restrictions.  Native and drought tolerant plants became the backbone of many designs resulting in colorful palettes of flowers and foliage with very little maintenance.  Self taught, Karen continued to expand her education through local events and classes, personal study and completion of the Master Gardener certification with the University of Illinois.  Her designs are hand-drawn and include complete pricing and specifications enabling you to comfortably plan the installation.

It all starts with an idea...

But where do you start?  What plants do you select and where do you put everything?

That's where Karen comes in.  Her knowledge and expertise matched with your vision will create a garden space for you to enjoy and share with others.

GBK Designs looks forward to creating your garden.​
