Whether it’s a pot, a balcony, a patio, or a backyard- Firmly Planted creates gardens of the soul! Before we start any job we always begin with two questions:

“How does this space make you feel? How do you want to feel in this space?”

We believe that a garden is like the “soul.” The seeds you plant are the “love.” The plants you choose are the “life.” And the soil is the “beautiful, black blanket” that keeps it all nurtured, growing, and healthy. Then there is “you”- the “golden thread” – the “garden (guardian) angel” – the one that makes sure everything is happy and healthy. Just the way Firmly Planted and nature intended it!

Firmly Planted was created out of love, consciousness, and the knowing that when you surround yourself with beauty, nature, style, and flow you will feel good. When you feel good you are good!

I am Alicia Blas, the creator of Firmly Planted. I am a proud graduate of Columbia College Chicago, a Master Gardener (California, New Mexico, Michigan and Florida), a garden designer, a product designer, and a landscape/photo/set stylist.

Reasons to have beautiful outdoor spaces :

-brings people and families together

-improves the value of your home

-creates experiences

-sustainability: herbs, veggies, and fruits

I believe your garden is so much more than a garden. It is a place to connect, dream, create, and manifest. It’s about the feeling that comes together when mixing nature and beauty. It must also include: spirit, color, accessories, the perfect spaces to sit, eat, and relax. Each of these elements are as important as the plants and flowers you choose.

The past 10 year long, strange and glorious journey has led me and Firmly Planted through homes, office buildings (inside and out), city streets, catalogs, and even a few TV shows. Products from turf- pillows, address numbers, and rugs. Interior and exterior plant-scaping and home staging.

We are all about planting seeds of love- all kinds.
We give it, we get it, we dig it, we spread it!
We are proud to be Firmly Planted and we want to help you with your next landscape project.
