Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
Vision Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
"I had a great experience with Robin - she completed designs on time and took feedback into consideration with each iteration, including a somewhat-late change (driveway modifications) which required replanning a bit of the yard. She also gave great support throughout the project implementation stage, helping to find a contractor and being available for consultation throughout the construction. Robin put together a spread of different possible plants during the design process which met my criteria (low water, low maintenance), with suggestions about where to plant each (or, options for different areas). This made the process a whole lot easier - no need to do research on my own or worry about what plants work well together. I ended up with a beautiful, water-conscious yard, and I would recommend Robin to anyone looking to do serious landscaping."

Jolee Horne Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
"We have worked with Jolee Horne since the summer of 1996, when we remodeled our house and garden. The garden was a from-the-ground-up project, necessitating design, irrigation, and planting. Jolee is totally knowledgeable people in all areas; she has an artist's eye and an inventor's creativity. She listened attentively and was diplomatic in steering us toward things that would both work well and satisfy our own vision. We have continued to work with her to the present day; she is the first person I call for updates on planting ideas. We see her at least twice a year for consults and work on our garden. She came highly recommended when we were looking for help. We, in turn, highly recommend her eye and talent."

Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
"My name is Jesus Medina Owner of Medina Multiservices Inc. dba Medina Lawn Care TX. I worked with Ruhina on a landscaping project which we took a bland back yard and made into the most beautiful high end California style yard here in the heart of Texas. I really liked the attention to detail she used and I enjoyed even with all challenges involved bringing this project from paper... to life. The customers were very satisfied and we stayed within the budget proposed making it better for all of us. I would work with Ruhina anytime were she to ask me to. Great job and Thanks for the opportunity to work with you!"

Envision Landscape Studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, 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)"

Keith Willig Landscape Services, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
"We worked with Keith this last winter to redo essentially all of the yard space for our suburban home. This included front (yard, walkways, driveway), back (yard, patio), sides (planter boxes, walkways). We're very happy with not just the results, but the experience of working with Keith. Our house is an Eichler, so we were looking for a modern aesthetic in the design phase. Both Keith and designer Charlie Loy worked on preliminary design iterations. We worked with Keith directly as the design finalized, through the inevitable tradeoffs between features & budget. Through the build process, Keith was creative, flexible, and unflappable in making design and build adjustments due to complications (tree overhang required fire put to move, which meant the layout of some key benches and walls had to move, Keith worked out a new design immediately) and opportunities (turning some reclaimed boulders and river rocks into a water-less water feature). Budget and schedule: Our budget was around $100K, and we were able to stick pretty close to it, by changing some design elements so that the final design was at budget. Once we were in the build phase, both budget and schedule went without a hitch. Of course there were delays, but Keith and Cesar, his foreman, kept us informed, and worked around delays (inspections, parts not showing up) as much as they could. The whole crew was professional and thoughtful throughout the process -remember when we had those big storms in Nov /Dec - they made sure that even tho the yard was a muddy mess, we had clear access to the house. In the end, we're very very happy, and I would whole-heartedly recommend Keith Willig. Our new landscaping is not only beautiful, its 10X more usable! Keith & co were able to unlock parts of the property that we didn't even think about, and make them great."

Vision To Completion
Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
"Working with Yaniv was an excellent experience for me. We did many projects together, mainly hardscape (backyard design) and every time my clients were amazed with the renderings!! I really appreciate his time and effort to design within the client's budget. I highly recommend Yaniv and his team."

The client will know the construction costs prior to receiving my written proposal. I enjoy working with John and his staff. Very professional and talented One of the best custom residential Landscape Architectural firms in the East Bay."

Karen Aitken and Associates
Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
"Aitken & Associates considered all of the elements we wished to include in the landscape of our home, together with the grading plan of our lot, and came up with a design that could accommodate our wishes. We have been enjoying the result for 10 years now, with my only regret being the things I changed on my own from the written design plan as we were executing, thinking I had just come up with "better" idea. Wrong! They know what they're doing, and you can be sure its been thought all the way through. Everyone in the office was great to work with, returning phone calls and emails in a timely manner, and showing up for scheduled appointments on time. Our design plan was done when they said it would be, and we went straight to the City to get our permits. Which brings up another thing: Aitken & Associates was clearly familiar with our City ordinances because upon review by the City, there was nothing in our landscape design plan that we couldn't get permitted. We were very pleased with Aitken & Associates."
- Marie Blankley
Verdance Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
"I have had the pleasure of installing 2 projects designed by Verdance Landscape Design. John brought me in on both projects to do preliminary cost estimates which blossomed into construction contracts. John was extremely easy to work with as we co-labored to bring the homeowner's vision into reality. We share a passion for landscaping and are both interested in every little detail so that the final product is something we can take personal pride in. Whenever I had a question or was concerned about something he was readily available to help and give his direction and input. I would highly recommend John if you value great, well thought out design and someone who can take your project all the way through completion. I look forward to installing many more of Verdance's Award Winning landscapes in the future."

Kristen Rudger Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Foster City, CA
"Kristen designed a beautiful makeover for our yard - front, back and sides. She asked lots of questions before designing anything - what we wanted (pavers, pretty flowers), what we didn't want (water feature, yellow flowers) and in general, how we wanted to use our yard. She came up with lovely, detailed plans for a traditional looking garden (with our traditional looking house) - that were revised slightly with discussion, then found a couple of contractors to bid on the work. She supervised the work of the one we chose, making sure they followed the plans. She recommended a new gardner - good choice. About a year later she replaced the few plants that hadn't made it (for no charge), and now almost two years later the place is absolutely beautiful! I can't tell you how many complements we have received ever since the job was originally completed - and they continue to this day!"

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 Foster City, CA house. From there the Foster City 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 Foster City 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 Foster City, 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 Foster City, 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?
