PMW Design

(MWOB) Woman Owned and Operated
PMW Design is a San Diego based freelance graphic design company with nearly 20 years experience, working for businesses large and small. PMW Design was founded to provide you with effective creative services, great customer service and eco-friendly printing at fantastic prices!
We are committed and have taken steps forward to truly offer an environmentally friendly green printing service that is not just a buzz word. We use vegetable and soy based inks which have lower levels of VOC than traditional petroleum inks. This reduces harmful carbon emissions while creating a safer environment. We coat most of our prints with non-toxic water based coatings to improve biodegradability of our products and improve drying times. We offer AQ coatings with gloss or matte finish. We offer paper options that contain up to 55% post-consumer recycled content. To top it all off, the remaining content comes from sources that practice sustainable forestry! We recycle all unused paper scraps, printing plates and ink waste.

Garden Designer, Landscape Contractor

John Beaudry Landscape Design


John Beaudry Landscape Design offers sustainable landscape design, installation and maintenance. We are licensed landscape contractors. Located in the City of San Diego, serving all of San Diego county and beyond. John Beaudry has been helping people care for and understand their gardens for over thirty years.


The historic landscape approach is twofold: it involves honoring classical themes in landscape design and architecture while suggesting plants, materials and methodologies that help to stabilize, improve, or restore ecosystem services.


We believe that your yard holds the potential both to improve and to regenerate a multitude of services that are provided by healthy ecosystems. We will make every effort to see that it does.

The services people enjoy from healthy ecosystems are the foundation of daily life. Trees help regulate local climate by providing shade and acting as windbreaks. Through evaporation, transpiration, and the uptake and storage of carbon, plants moderate the climate of the world and provide a breathable atmosphere. Thousands of different pollinator species visit their respective flowers and promote the growth of myriad plants and crops. Healthy wetlands protect against floods and help to improve water quality. Soils and vegetation purify stormwater seeping through to groundwater and underground aquifers.
