Master of Landscape Design
As a girl growing up in Texas, Beverly Katz wanted to be a ballerina. As an adult, she found her way into another artistic endeavor — landscape design. Katz first worked as a landscape architect’s assistant and then struck out on her own. In business for more than 25 years, clients have come to refer to Katz as a “landscape therapist” due to her way of transforming their outdoor spaces by exploring an owner’s interior life. “I study people through their interior first so I can capture what they like and need and let it flow to the outside,” she says. A life member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, Katz has garnered multiple awards and has been featured on HGTV. She believes her ability to create livable outdoor rooms is the key to her success. “Function and correcting problems are first, beauty comes next,” says Katz, who has worked closely with landscape architect Kay Ourso for 20 years. She infuses each job, even the ultra modern, with a touch of historic New Orleans, making her a favorite among owners of historic homes and other landmark properties. “I love to take design and put it in place,” she says.
