Envision Landscape Studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in El Sobrante, CA
"Colin and his firm Envision have now done two landscape design and build projects for us. It was an experience so different than other construction jobs we have endured. Colin communicated each step of the way, he was creative in taking our ideas and offering creative solutions, alternatives and even cost savings. He was always on schedule and employs a great crew with an eye for detail. The stack rock retaining wall is amazing how it all fits perfectly and actually saved us money versus and plain wood wall. I never knew that native plants could have so much color and visual interest for so much of the year. His design and construction project for a duplex we own was even more creative as he took one plain backyard shared by two tenants a turned it into two separate peaceful low maintenance yards using clump bamboo and natives. Envision’s start to finish philosophy made it easy! (I'll upload some pics soon)"

Huettl Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in El Sobrante, CA
"Our experience working with Joe and his crew has been wonderful from design to installation. Joe met with us, took our initial idea and created a yard that captures the modern aesthetic of our Eichler home. Without him, small but important details would have been missed like pebble strips in the driveway, the honed cement block walls, and the simple cut out for the front fountain. Each is a small or simple item, but those details help make the project. We loved the front yard plan so much, we also had him do our backyard. And it is just as spectacular. People drive by our house and stop to look at the yard. Joe made sure all our concerns were addressed from drainage to the color of flowers. We gave him our budget and he stayed within it while providing a phenomenal project. His construction crew were also great to work with. They showed up on time, they left the site clean each day and kept us up to date on any changes or delays. Joe was at the site often to make sure we were happy with the progress, the plants, the layout, etc. When we did make some changes in the design Joe made the changes quickly, easily and perfectly. If this sounds like we are impressed with Huettl Landscape Architecture we are. Not only does he have a phenomenal design aesthetic, but he has a hardworking, experienced crew that is very capable of executing his designs which in our project included steel troweled stucco walls, masonry block walls, a custom deck, slate patio, pebble tile inset strips and 2 custom water features. We highly recommend Huettl Architecture. "

Garden Lights Landscape and Pool Development Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in El Sobrante, CA
"I only had a bid done for a landscaping project, but was very happy with the information provided by Garden Lights. They made a home available to me to see their work, which I appreciated. In the end, we decided to put off the project, but I thought the bid process with Garden Lights was very professional."

Ian Moore Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in El Sobrante, CA
"Ian is great! Our backyard needed a lot of help - starting with the deck, which had some funky stairs, and no charm at all. Ian designed and built a great and sturdy deck, a concrete walkway and designed the landscape along our side yard. I love his design sense: simple, sleek, modern - and very cool! He pays great attention to detail and you can tell he really enjoys his work. He is also reliable and very professional, and fun to work with! I look forward to having Ian design our front yard soon and I would recommend him without hesitation."

Native Sun Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in El Sobrante, CA
"Joshua Burman Thayer is a terrific landscape designer. He's knowledgeable about native plants and the different ecosystems that may coexist within a single yard. He makes suggestions based on what he knows will work well, but is always careful to take into account the client's tastes and budget, and how much watering and work they want to do. He is warm and prompt and lovely to work with, and he loves to show homeowners how to do their own plant care, if they are so inclined. We could not be happier with his work!"

Jake Moss Designs
Landscape Architects and Designers in El Sobrante, CA
"Jake Moss is, hands down, the best contractor with which we have ever worked. He provides a complete estimate, does what he says he'll do, and remains in regular communication with you as the work is progressing. We initially hired Jake three years ago to design a lawn-less front yard, and it is absolutely stunning. We then hired him to do side and back yard work, culminating in an outdoor kitchen last summer, which is amazing. I only wish Jake worked inside, as we'd hire him for more! It is so nice to work with a smart, creative, and practical contractor. He has great ideas, and he's at his best when he gets to design, so my advice would be to let him contribute that to your project - you won't be sorry!"

Boxleaf Design, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in El Sobrante, CA
"Sarah Warto was our landscape designer on a historic remodel in Palo Alto. We tore the house down to the studs and completely replaced the landscape on a large corner lot. Sarah was a joy to work with and produced a brilliant result. One of our friends is on the board of directors of Gamble Garden in Palo Alto, and she praised our landscaping - which is a high compliment. Sarah is on her to way to becoming one of the top landscape architects in the Bay Area."

What does a landscape architect do?


The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home's exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your El Sobrante, CA house. From there the El Sobrante landscaper will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but licensed California landscapers are fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.

What does a landscape designer do?


A El Sobrante landscaping designer generally will have ecological, aesthetic and technical training, which helps them maximize the potential of your outdoor space. Keeping in mind both style and functionality, garden designers analyze your architecture and yard to produce a plan that may or may not include location and materials for walkways, patios, water features, fences, garden aspects and more. In addition, a landscaper in El Sobrante, CA will carefully assess your geographic region to choose plants, trees and flowers that will flourish naturally, as well as address concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions. Certain landscape designers only help with the planning portion, while some may deliver the plans and then oversee a hired landscaping contractor. Others — typically following a design-build approach — take care of both the design and all aspects of the landscape architecture and construction.

Before you hire a California professional landscaper, consider the scope and emphasis of your outdoor project. Landscape architects, who typically hold advanced degrees in their field, are trained to develop comprehensive structural plans that include plants, hardscaping, water use, drainage and more. Landscape designers typically specialize in the aesthetic and horticultural, rather than structural, side of yard and garden planning. They might or might not have advanced training. Even within their fields, a garden designer may specialize in hardscape- or vegetation-focused designs. In some cases you might need to hire additional help to get the outdoor space you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in El Sobrante, CA:


  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been in the landscaping business?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests (such as ADA or LEED)?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • What do your services include?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns that you know of or that might come up in the future with this project?
