Since 1995, David Meeker of Porthole Design has been designing and building fine gardens with a focus on sustainability, beauty, and ownership. Working from a foundational premise that plant selection and placement are the keys to great and inspiring garden design, Porthole Design seeks to rebuild what is possible in your yard. As a horticultural and design consultant, nursery and landscape design manager, and head plant buyer for influential landscape design and architecture firms in San Francisco, Iowa, and Austin, David has absorbed a wide range of styles and amassed a large palette of unique plants to serve his clients' needs. The aims of Porthole Design are simple: to create gardens we would want to live in. If you are thinking of planning or implementing a new garden (or upgrading an existing one) or simply want to schedule a 1-hour horticultural consultation to answer garden-related questions, please feel free to contact us for more information on our hourly rates and availability.
