Landscape Architect

Ive is a licensed Landscape Architect and the Principal at Shades of Green.

She began her career in Norway, her country of origin. After earning her Master’s of Landscape Architecture from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Ive worked for the Public Roads Administration to design environmentally sensitive infrastructure in the vulnerable fjord and coastal landscapes of western Norway. She then joined Kalve & Smedsvig Landscape Architects, an award-winning firm in Bergen. There she worked as a project manager and lead designer on a variety of public and commercial projects.

Ive moved to California in 2000. She spent four years working at APDW, where she designed and managed large-scale projects including hospitality, master planning, and mixed-use projects. She also worked closely with SWA Group as a consultant on international projects, competitions, and multi-family housing projects. She received her professional license in 2003.

Ive founded Shades of Green in 2004. As Principal, Ive applies her passion for beautiful design and sustainable landscape practices. She draws inspiration from nature, contemporary fashion, and her Scandinavian background. Ive brings modern simplicity and creative flair to each and every Shades of Green design.

Baci is the big guard dog and greeter. She also makes sure we get some fresh air when we have been working too long.

She loves running, hiking, and treats.



Over 10 years of experience in managing office floors of the Bay Area.

She specializes in silent begging.



Fenja considers herself the boss of the office and loves showing the other dogs how to behave. However, as soon as she gets to the park she turns in to a fun and crazy puppy herself.
