Karen Aitken & Associates
Listening and responding with warm, natural and soothing environments, tailored to the desires and pleasure of discerning clients, is a business we love.
Over 30 years ago founder Karen Aitken (A.S.L.A) began Aitken & Associates as an innovative, thoughtful and environmentally conscious Landscape Architecture firm serving the unique needs of Northern California.
After attended the University of California at Santa Barbara and Cal Poly University, San Luis Obispo, Karen received a Bachelors of Science in Landscape Architecture. Karen has been applying that knowledge as a registered Landscape Architect with the State of California since 1983.
A project we are very proud of is the Landscape Masterplan and plant selection for the world-famous Bonfante Gardens Horticultural Theme Park located in Gilroy, California. We have been most gratified by the reaction from the public, especially from the children who use this park.
With a commitment to community service, Karen has long been active as a member of both the Gilroy Rotary Club and Gilroy Assistance League. Additionally, she has been a member of A.S.L.A., the American Society of Landscape Architects, for over 25 years.
Aitken Associates has been honored with the 2001 Best Small Business of the Year, by the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce for success in business and commitment to community service.
Recently, the American Horticulture Society Garden School at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio honored Karen as their featured speaker and guest lecturer.
