Francesca Corra, APLD

Francesca Corra, APLD is a nationally certified Landscape Designer and owner of Dirt Diva Designs located in Studio City, CA. She specializes in creating private outdoor spaces for residential homeowners utilizing principles of the Watershed Approach to landscaping. This includes using climate appropriate plants, treating all water on the property as a valuable resource, and using organic materials to create healthy and absorbent soil.

The path of creativity is one that Francesca has followed all her life, from making her own clothes from the age of eleven to designing private jet interiors. She has found that all her interests—traveling, cooking, painting, sewing, and reading—contribute to the design process.

Francesca loves spending as much time as possible outside in her own garden and her goal is to create spaces for her clients to have the same enjoyment of outdoor living that she does. Her many years of international travel give her a unique perspective on design and a great appreciation for the incredible lifestyle that we have here in southern California.

Since she began her design career, Francesca has been involved in leadership roles in APLD, the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. APLD actively promotes the education of its members and relationships with other industry professionals.

Francesca considers herself to be a perpetual student—always on the prowl for inspiration and knowledge. She loves imagining beautiful spaces and each landscape she dreams up is completely different as they are designed specifically for the tastes, budget and lifestyles of the homeowners.
