Foodscapes Hawai‘i

Garden Styles


You don't need a yard the size of the White House lawn to grow your own food. We can design a Foodscapes Garden to fit any size yard or lanai that has access to sunlight and water.

Your custom Foodscapes design may be one of these styles, or a combination, depending on your specific conditions. In our initial site visit, we'll help you decide what works best for you.
