Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Encinitas, CA
Falling Waters Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Encinitas, CA
"Ryan at Falling Waters designed and installed the new landscaping in our front yard. The job included a major demolition component of the existing driveway and greenscape. The new driveway and walk ways they installed were exquisite. The new green scape included a mature olive tree, grasses, boulders, and drought tolerant plants. Everything turned out fantastic, and after two years we still receive compliments from the neighbors. Ryan followed through with everything he promised including the project budget and deadlines. The job site was always left clean and safe. I would recommend Ryan and Falling Waters to anyone seeking a unique and innovative landscape contractor."

The Design Build Company
Landscape Architects and Designers in Encinitas, CA
"We have relied on Hill's Landscapes: The Design Build Company (Robert Hill General Contractor) for over twenty five years. Robert Hill has a talent for solving design problems that stump everyone else. The first case, 1987, was a pool in a situation where we had given up until we contacted Robert Hill. His design has been admired by everyone who has seen it and has been a joy to us ever since. He also designed a new driveway and retaining wall for us in a very difficult setting. Again, his design has drawn much praise. His crews are friendly, hard working and competent."

lisa chestnut | landscapes
Landscape Architects and Designers in Encinitas, CA
"Lisa is talented and experienced. She has a modern thoughtful aesthetic. She pays close attention to the subtleties of what makes a design great versus good. I cannot sit in my yard without someone coming by and commenting on something they appreciate. Lastly she is a delight (and inspiration) to work with. Her calm/knowing manner is reassuring."

Revolution Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Encinitas, CA
"We have used Revolution Landscape for 3 projects over the last 5 years (a steep hillside; removal of grass and installation of a pond and raised garden beds and shaded deck/arbor in back yard; and turf removal/water-wise redesign of front yard). We also use them for regular landscape maintenance. We never spent much time out in or had much interest in the landscaping of our small suburban yard until Revolution inspired us. We now thoroughly enjoy our many fruit trees, our fresh garden vegetables, and relaxing on our side deck listening to the little waterfall and enjoying a glass of wine. They are attentive, listen well to budget concerns, and give really educated advice on plant selection in addition to being realistic about schedules and project completion. The crew is professional, friendly, and responsive."

Terrain Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Encinitas, CA
"We hired Nathan Smith to design our side yard a few years back and were so happy with the end result that we hired him for 3 other gardens. He knows plants and can offer so many ideas that are beautiful and drought tolerant. The way that these new gardens have transformed our home is remarkable. 100% we recommend Nathan Smith Landscape Design!"

Land Aesthetic
Landscape Architects and Designers in Encinitas, CA
"I needed a BBQ island in my backyard. This company designed and built one that is functional as well as unique and innovative in design. I am still getting complements on it over a year later! The project went a little over the scheduled time, but that was because I made several changes during its construction. The company worked with me during the whole time and accommodated my changes beyond my expectations. I am extremely pleased with the result and I will definitely use them again in future."

SP Gardens - Susanna Pagan Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Encinitas, CA
"LOVED working with Susanna! She went above and beyond to listen to my wants and needs for my yard and then design exactly what I wanted. Her plans were accurate and got the HOA approval with no hangups. Her plant list was very complete and she made changes as they needed to happen due to current plant availability. The small idea book she gave me was invaluable in sourcing the items we had discussed and served as a tool in not only obtaining bids but then referring back to it during construction. It was pretty hard for the contractor to say he didn't understand my design wants when I could show him the book he bid the job with! It was great working with a designer that is current on trends and knowledgeable too!! LOVE MY OUTDOOR SPACE!! Thank you Susanna!"

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 Encinitas, CA house. From there the Encinitas 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 Encinitas 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 Encinitas, 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 Encinitas, 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?
