Cristina Plemel

Landscape Designer

As a landscape designer, Cristina brings 3 years’ professional experience in planting design, irrigation design, construction documentation, and graphic production. Merrill Morris projects are enhanced by Cristina’s clear graphic, written, and verbal communication skills.


Landscape architecture is in Cristina’s nature. She participated in internships for the City of Pasadena, the US Forest Service, and the Huntington Botanical Gardens while studying at Cal Poly Pomona. Fueled by a delight in plants, she worked at the UC Davis Arboretum as a plant propagation and nursery intern. 


Outside of her professional pursuits, Cristina enjoys hiking, biking, music, gardening, and baking cakes.
