Sarita Opal Moodie, principal of SOM Land Design,  brings over a decade of extensive experience in landscape design to the Lower Sunshine Coast BC. Her philosophy of landscape architecture is to design landscapes that compliment both the architecture they surround and the natural environments of which they are part. Her designs enhance outdoor places and enrich the experience of being in them.
