Panel Discussion 
Trends in Contemporary Landscape Design 

Join us as a panel of three award-winning San Diego landscape designers presents the latest innovations in landscape design. Moderated by landscape designer and SDHS board member Susanna Pagan, the panel will explore new approaches, new materials and new plants being used to create beautiful gardens. Panel members Kendra Berger of Revive Landscape Design, Ryan Prange of Falling Waters Landscape and Kate Wiseman of Sage Outdoor Designs will illustrate their presentations with examples of gardens they have created around the county. Garden design is changing and as this discussion will show, many of the innovations are happening here. Bring your questions!


Kendra Berger is an award winning landscape designer, certified Arborist, and SDHS sponsor with over 10 years experience in the landscape design industry.  

In 2006, Kendra started Revive Landscape Design, where she is the visionary, designer, supervisor and primary contact for all clients.  Since opening the doors to Revive, Kendra’s work has been recognized in national magazines such as Sunset and Better Homes & Gardens, as well as many local publications.

Kendra works in collaboration with other industry experts such as Architects, engineers, and interior designers to create one-of-a-kind unique spaces for her clients. She also works closely with landscape contractors during the installation phase of her projects, which has given her in-depth knowledge of the construction and installation aspect of landscaping. 

Kendra is passionate about transforming her clients’ outdoor spaces into an inspirational and integral part of their home life. Her outdoor environments are unique to each client, fully functional, and eco-friendly.
