Renee Wilkinson is a landscape designer based in Portland, Oregon. She creates beautiful outdoor spaces that entice homeowners to connect with nature, grow their own food and support native wildlife. She received her masters degree in landscape architecture from the University of Oregon in 2012.

Services range from conceptual garden design to fine-grained planting plans. She can help with creating welcoming entrances, outdoor gathering spaces, water elements, edible landscapes and more. She has a partnership with landscape contractors who can professionally install the garden design, but is happy to turn the design over to DIY homeowners who plan to install it on their own.
