She is a proud member of the California chapter of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD).

For those individuals who want to do it themselves or explore a range of landscaping ideas, but don't know how or where to begin, she can spend as little as an hour or an entire day helping you learn how to design, build and/or maintain your garden.
Eva Knoppel is founder, principal landscape designer and licensed landscape contractor for the Los Angeles landscape design company, Garden Of Eva Landscape Design Group, Inc.
Born in Arvika, Sweden, she holds a Masters Degree in Molecular Biology from the University of Uppsala.
In 1977 she moved to the United States and for 23 years worked as a molecular biologist at UCLA and Children's Hospital.
But her love of plants and gardens overcame her and she traded in her test tubes and beakers for a trowel and garden shears and opened a nursery in Long Beach. A high-end florist shop on Melrose in West Hollywood followed, and in 1995 she opened the Garden of Eva Landscape Design Group, Inc.
She has a husband and three sword-wielding children, all of whom, except for the husband, are champion fencers.
