Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in La Mesa, CA
Envy Landscape Design Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in La Mesa, CA
"After admiring a neighbor's new driveway and entry several years ago, we met Petr & Honza, owners of Envy Landscape Design, Inc., who had done the work. Since then, they have completed three projects for us. The first would have been a plain stucco wall without Petr's eye as an architect. We now have a beautiful wall that includes wooden slats mixed in with the stucco. The design fits in with our pre-existing entry and a new wooden gate to our side yard, which Petr designed. Our wall has received rave reviews from our neighbors. The second project was an outdoor kitchen, which has become our favorite place to hang out--with friends or not, and while cooking on the grill or not. It is unique, with wonderful natural materials, designed by Petr. Our most recent project was a new driveway, entry to our home and front yard. We now have curb appeal, with a fountain and colorful, drought-tolerant trees and plants, which are watered by a drip irrigation system. The materials used make for a fresh and modern look, while repeating some of the materials from our backyard, giving continuity from front to back. It is so beautiful that I call their work "art by the yard." Petr & Honza are trustworthy, dependable and hard working. We enjoyed their humor, too, and miss seeing them."

Falling Waters Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in La Mesa, 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."

Land Aesthetic
Landscape Architects and Designers in La Mesa, 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."

Revolution Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in La Mesa, 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."

Torrey Pines Landscape Co., Inc
Landscape Architects and Designers in La Mesa, CA
"The project was to supply landscaping for the area around a new pool. Torrey Pines (TPLC) was suggested by the pool contractor after an earlier recommended Landscaper proved too inflexible. TPLC provided a plan and was happy to make adjustment to meet our requirements. They were a joy to work with and worked well with the pool company as well. The results were so pleasing that I hired them to redo most of the rest of my landscaping which they did equally well. They provide a high quality service and charge accordingly, but, I believe, fairly,"

SP Gardens - Susanna Pagan Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in La Mesa, 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!"

Singing Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in La Mesa, CA
"My husband and I contracted with Roxy to design a complete re-landscaping of our backyard. She worked with us until we were satisfied, and produced two revisions without an additional fee. Given the scope of our project, we realized at this point that, even with detailed plans, including extensive notes for the landscaper, it was unlikely to be justly implemented without Roxy's further participation. We therefore extended our contract with Roxy on an hourly basis, and assigned to her the task of selecting plants, rocks, and other materials, and to oversee the landscaping contractor. We discovered in this whole process that with Roxy, we were working with a real artist. She attended to details that never would have occurred to us, and we were able to make minor alterations in the design that wouldn't have happened without her involvement. During the construction stage, we had many visitors who commented on the talents of our designer. We spent nearly 10% of the total cost of our project for services from Roxy, but I know that we would never have been able to obtain the result we did without that investment. We are completely happy with the final result, and we get constant compliments from people who come to our house."

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 La Mesa, CA house. From there the La Mesa 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 La Mesa 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 La Mesa, 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 La Mesa, 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?
