Welcome to FLORECER Design

Life seems to get more chaotic every passing year, and for most of us, home is our sanctuary. It’s a space to share with your favorite people, create precious memories, and reconnect with nature.

My mission is to help create a space that puts a smile on your face every single time you drive up to your house at the end of a long day.

What is FLORECER Design?

What does "Florecer" mean?

FLORECER is a spanish word, meaning to flower, to flourish, to thrive.

This word feels very personal to me. I fell head over heels in love with Mexico the first time I visited, in the December of 2008. I had never been to a place that had so many festivals, parties, music, fireworks, parades, and with such community spirit and friendliness! The happiness and exuberance of living with joy was palpable. I started thinking immediately of how I could bring little pieces of this feeling home with me.

Since then, every landscape that I design, I think mainly about the people in the space, what will their parties be like? How will they sit here with their kids, with their friends? How can I make it feel more fun, more lively, more special, and more memorable? Landscape at it’s core is about plants, sure. But it’s really about creating a space that you can thrive and flourish as a person, and as a family, making memories. There is also something special about landscapes, and how they grow and change over the seasons, which I think feels reassuring to us. No matter how long and cold a winter may be, in the spring, everything is flowering and thriving again!

How We Got Started & Where Are We Now

I started Julie Kite Garden Designs in 2011. Since then, I have worked both solo, and as a collaboration with other landscapers, in creating high end, residential design build projects. In addition to the design portion, I spent a lot of my time as a project manager as well. Earlier this year, I decided that I wanted to return to using my maiden name, Julie Palasma. Knowing that a business name change probably should follow, I decided to re-brand under the name FLORECER, since it also signified a period of new beginnings for me.

" Every client has a different set of needs, and I create my designs for their landscape with a touch of psychology. For some, it’s creating an natural environment to recharges their batteries. For other, clean, simple and tidy gardens give them a sense of peace. Some people want to be reminded of their childhood homes, or another place that they love. "
