Featured Reviews for Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers

Mariposa Gardening & Design Cooperative, Inc.
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
September 21, 2012
My garden had good bones but the plants were all wrong. I wanted a garden that looked natural but well-kept, a tough aesthetic to pull off. I wanted lots of birds and butterflies. Mariposa Gardening has taken care of my garden for a few years now. The principal, Andrea Hurd, started by editing the original sorry collection of misplaced plants, replacing the losers with absolute winners. I now have a beautiful variety of textures, colors, shapes and sizes. Something is in bloom in all seasons. We are overrun with birds and, in season, with butterflies. Her maintenance crews have done a great job of keeping her work looking good. The trees are elegantly pruned; each one displays that gold standard "looks like it grew that way" look. Any special request that I make is quickly taken care of. Sometimes I get treats, in the form of new flowers or vegetable starts (I love foraging in my own back yard). In short I am completely happy with Mariposa Gardening and Design.
Root Volume Cooperative
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
October 16, 2018
Root Volume Cooperative was so great! from our first meeting i knew i could trust them and that they were very knowledgeable about water management and design. they really listened to my hopes and ideas for my new garden. that allowed me to let go and allow them to be their creative selves. what i got was way beyond what i could have imagined. they were able to incorporate my wish list (lavender, water chain, lighting, my daughter's hope for plants she could use for her herbal remedies) into their plans for a bio-swale, some natives and some water plants, a boardwalk made from a local arborists wood (he comes to trim my trees now), as well as reuse of existing materials, like the original concrete walkway. they were able to move one tree and keep the other 2 in place. Dante is such a joy to work with: he is calm, an artist, really listens (to me the most important part of any creative collaboration), was willing to work with my budget and how much i could handle at one time. we did some things in stages which really worked for me. i have and will recommend them to anyone. my project is on the website as marcy's garden. i have some before pictures of the previously totally wild meadow garden that had gotten out of control if anyone wants to see.
GardenWise Landscapes
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
July 5, 2019
It’s been a little over two years since Christine and Sonya came into our lives and transformed our entire property to the zen-like oasis we wanted. In short, GardenWise did an incredible job for our outdoor project from conceptual design, detail design, materials and color consultation, to planting selection and oversight of project implementation through completion. We wanted to create an outdoor space that melded two different personality types into a space we would both love....NAILED IT! Christine quickly grasped the challenges of blending a very traditional exterior home with the contemporary art and look we wanted to achieve, addressing limitations by our city’s very strict low tolerant plant guidelines, and while also incorporating privacy. We were very specific in the type of design and plants we wanted in our project. Christine took it from there and was back to us shortly with a rough conceptual we found amazingly responsive to our tastes. While we had a very different budget at the onset, the vision we had would not have been accomplished. In the end, we were well-over our planned budget but through the entire process, Christine was transparent and offered many alternative ideas to reduce cost. In the end, can you really put a price on art? We would recommend GardenWise to anyone without hesitation. In the process of detail design, we collaborated well together and Christine was always professionally polite, yet sensitive to any views we had on colors and material options. She recommended many choices of materials to choose from, and arranged for us to have samples we could hold onto for a few days to think about so that make our selections, yet politely opining if she thought our choice would not work. Her planting design and selection was even more difficult for us to fully grasp yet she led us through this with aplomb and we bought into the flow and form nicely. Throughout the construction process, Christine remained actively involved to ensure that the design in its reality would meet our expectations. As in any project, there arose issues that she made sure were addressed to our satisfaction. From a brief first meeting, tour of our yard, and regular access to our online inspiration photos folder, Christine created for us an oasis of outdoor space and architecture that transitioned so well from the traditional exterior to our more contemporary style. Not having met Christine before this project, today we hold her personally and professionally in the highest regard. She truly creates artistry in her design. What more can we say? Thank you so much for transforming our property into the beautiful space it is today. We believe our front yard is the neighborhood favorite (if they could only see the backyard!) but certainly to all our friends and immediate neighbors. I’m glad we took the time to research local and accredited landscapers and that you were willing to take us on as clients.
Bountiful Botanicals, Inc.
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
April 27, 2015
Lara and her crew are the best! They are fun to work with, super professional, and very talented at what they do. Our property was like something from the adams family before I called Lara. I dont think you could call what we had grass but there was patches of it everywhere along with dead trees and ratty looking bushes that completely covered our property. Needless to say, it required a lot of work. Lara is a great listener. She executed our vision to perfection and on budget. Now, we get compliments from our neighbors and other random people walking along our street almost constantly. My wife and I love spending time in the sanctuary that Lara and her fantastic crew created for us. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation! She's the best!
Monica Perrone Landscape Architecture
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
August 17, 2014
Monica Perrone was wonderful to work with. She helped our group from start to finish in achieving our landscape goals. Monica drew out samples and explained in detail what our thoughts would look like in reality. She made knowledgeable suggestions of what types of plants would work best for our project and the reasons for these ideas. The plan even detailed the projection of long term water use needed for the area and the plants. Our project looks beautiful and we are very happy with the end result, all thanks to Monica Perrone's expertise.
Sarah Herman Landscape Design
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
September 23, 2019
I selected to work with Sarah Herman because of her very, very highly rated reviews. She has exceed not only my expectations but my dreams. I have a very small craftsman house, with a very small front yard. Even knowing that most of her clients have spaces several times larger than mine, I asked her to come to look at the job anyway. I have never worked with anyone whom I would rate higher than Sarah Herman. Of course, she is very talented and most knowledgeable. But most importantly, she is an astoundingly good listener, always asking for clarification when needed. She keeps her word right down to the last iota, she is prompt, and she is also very accommodating--bending over backwards to meet the client's needs and even the client's dreams . The consequence of all of this is that I have a front yard beyond my dreams, my home looks beautiful AND everything installed is very easy to care for. Some of the plants, since they have a drip irrigation system, require no more of me than a kind word , now and then ;).
Past the Gate
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
July 10, 2013
Past the Gate did a beautiful job with a new patio I purchased as a gift for my daughter at her home. Greg and his staff were friendly and very professional and I would use them again in an instant (in fact, I have now used them two years in a row for improvements to my daughter's property in Berkeley!)
Miller Landscape Architecture
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
February 24, 2014
Sue Miller of Miller Landscape Architecture took our weedy, uneven, unusable backyard and transformed it into a beautiful terraced garden perfect for relaxing and entertaining. She patiently listened to our thoughts and concerns, and designed and developed a plan that reflects our lifestyle. We now have expansive outdoor living space that fully suits our needs, including native plant gardens, lawn, horseshoe pit play area, deck/pergola, multiple flights of custom cut flagstone stairs, and a flagstone patio. We benefitted from Sue's design talent and construction experience, as well as her ease in working with contractors. She kept us updated throughout a multi-phased construction process, while providing suggestions and soliciting our input. We highly recommend working with Miller Landscape Architecture.
Sam Bella Design
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
March 20, 2018
We worked with Samantha when relandscaping our Willow Glen backyard. Samantha came to the house personally, took notes and measurements and we had a delightful conversation about our needs, wants and possibilities. She carefully considered all the details pertaining to our particular situation - selective, at times even limited sunlight, children, dogs and the exterior look of our house (Mediterranean). I was very impressed with her thorough attention to detail. Samantha is very quick to respond to questions and provide feedback and is always open to suggestions - commutation was always easy, fun and straightforward, which is a huge plus. We had a plan within a few days and installation began soon after. Going forth, I would absolutely recommend Samantha. We were very happy with her initial proposal, design, work process and the end result.
studio M MERGE
Alameda, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
June 22, 2016
Andrea designed a complete backyard remodel for us that involved extensive grading, hardscape and landscaping. The job turned out even better than expected and we constantly get accolades on the design. She chose the plants beautifully and 5 years out the yard looks better than ever and the plants have maintained and grown in even with restricted water use. I would highly recommend her and we plan to use her services again!
