Judith Phillips

Judith Phillips has spent more than forty years gardening in the Southwest and is still adapting. She is the owner of Judith Phillips Design Oasis, an ecosystem-inspired garden design and consulting service. She has designed thousands of residential gardens in New Mexico, Colorado, and Arizona and has been fortunate to be involved in diverse public projects from habitat gardens at wildlife refuges and parks, to healing gardens at hospitals, and outdoor classrooms for elementary schools. The common ground is luring people outdoors to spend time with plants.

As a part-time faculty member at the University of New Mexico, she focuses on native and climate-adapted plants for arid landscapes. She has contributed to many books, and is the sole author of New Mexico Gardener’s Guide, Southwestern Landscaping with Native Plants, Natural by Design, and Plants for Natural Gardens.
