Our Process

MJN Design Studio not only created a beautiful backyard, but an atmosphere that is ever changing, filled with surprises as the seasons change.  Michelle Newman and her team were there every step of the way.  Her design for my backyard was gorgeous, creative and incredibly efficient. I now use 100% of my backyard.

Michelle always went above and beyond whether it was a delivery of unique high quality bulbs, aerial photos, or hidden nurseries. She was able to bring me structure with an organic feel that created such a warm and inviting backyard that works beautifully with my contemporary style.

Michelle knows how to manage a job site with a level of efficiency and class that puts her above the rest. She brings accountability, creativity, functionality and beauty to every job.

Michelle Newman has completed extensive landscaping to our property, ranging from classic landscape design and installation, to very large tree planting, to stone work, ponds, reclaiming overgrown areas, and much more.

During this time I have had the opportunity to work very closely with Michelle through all the various details. She is thorough, conscientious, committed to high quality work, experienced in a broad range of landscape-related areas, very knowledgeable of plants, and a person of high integrity.

It is my pleasure to highly recommend MJN Design Studio.

Michelle Newman and her people couldn’t have done a more spectacular job on our grounds.   They not only are very creative, but also know what plants, trees and flowers will survive in Malibu near the ocean. They are very reliable, efficient and professional.   We are 100% pleased with their work.
