Every garden design starts with founder, Holly Stickley. After graduating from UCLA, and two decades working as an architecture photographer, Holly began studying and pursuing her love for residential garden design.
She launched The White Pear in 2008, and has since helped clients make their gardens and outdoor living spaces more beautiful, functional, and healthy. Most important and satisfying to Holly is the friendships that she makes along the way, inspiring them to pursue their garden and outdoor living dreams.
Living in beautiful Portland, Oregon, Holly and her husband Fred, enjoy entertaining, cooking, music, reading, and spending time with their two adorable doggies, Vivienne and Chesterfield.
