For over 30 years, Heritage Landscapes has been creating and caring for customized landscapes. Founder Jan Gross realizes that paradise is not a one size fits all solution. Each project calls for integrating the home owner’s style and color palette along with the home’s architectural strengths. Based in Marin, Jan has expert knowledge of Northern California’s myriad of eco-systems and micro climates- from the windy bluffs in Carmel, to the lush redwoods of Mendocino, to Sonoma’s arid inlands. Jan knows how to match unique plants with customized styles.

Each personalized landscape is created with a commitment to the environment. Recognized as an authority on environmental sustainability, our team implements water strategies with the creation of healthy soils, reducing irrigation costs as well as eliminating the need for chemicals.

Her designs have been celebrated by Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset Magazine, and the California Landscape Contractors Association. This passion for creating unique landscapes has been reinforced by her skill as an accomplished landscape artist. Her pastels have been featured in numerous shows over the past three decades, as well as on book covers. Jan uses her deep and playful understanding of color to create designs that resonate. She creates paradise, one garden at a time.
