Meet The specialists at LIving Green
As a design visionary in the Bay Area for 35 years, founder and principal designer Davis Dalbok has led a movement of interior exotica and subtropical gardens, bringing inspiration from his botanical retreat on the Big Island of Hawaii, worldwide travels, and through friendships with some of the illumined design maestros of the world.
Accolades include several Best in Show wins at the San Francisco Garden Show and numerous write ups in Sunset and Garden Design magazines. Davis also sits on the Advisory Council for the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park and collaborated on the remake of the Ancient Plant Garden in the San Francisco Botanical Garden. He considers himself fortunate to have an ongoing collaboration designing sacred gardens in India at Bodhgaya, Bihar, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
With Davis's influence, Living Green will always be a place of timeless, worldly and spiritual treasure.
A plant enthusiast for many years, Lindsey began developing a special affinity for coastal California landscapes at a young age. The arid slopes of the Ojai valley that run down to the meet expansive beaches of Santa Barbara have played an influential role in his love for sculptural desert plants and subtropical plantings that take on a tropical flair.
Lindsey has worked on broad spectrum of projects in the Bay Area, from roof terraces, living walls and boutique gardens to Interior Plantscapes for residential homes, commercial high rises and corporate office spaces. He’s a modernist at heart but feels equally comfortable working on more traditional projects. He has collaborated on several San Francisco Decorator Showcase gardens, including Living Green’s very well received 2015 entry, ‘Birds of Prey Courtyard’.
Lindsey created all of the Interiorscapes for the very successful 2016 Sunset Idea House, and incorporates a very thorough and methodical approach in his design sensibility, believing that early involvement in a build project portends a successful outcome.
