Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Los Angeles, CA
Ketti Kupper Conscious Life Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Los Angeles, CA
"I just bought a house in the high desert and I called Ketti for a consultation, I wasn't sure if she would know about how to work in the desert climate but her ideas were amazing. She knows so much about plants and she helped me find the right plants that would grow in my area. Ketti's work is so creative I don't think any other designer would think of the things she does. For example my backyard was surrounded by a pinkish block wall. She suggested I paint the brick a natural plant enhancing brown,and it was amazing how much that small change made in the area. I know with her continuing consultation my yard is becomeing something out of a fairytale, I'll be stepping out into a art-gallery of nature and artistic stone paths that will uplift my soul on a daily basis."

Urban Oasis
Landscape Architects and Designers in Los Angeles, CA
"We wanted a change to our rather pedestrian front lawn. We were recommended to Urban Oasis by a satisfied friend. Essentially, we wanted a grassless front lawn with herbs - drought resistant plants - rocks and gravel artistically placed with some color highlights and an overall feeling of serenity. We reviewed some lawns that we liked and Urban Oasis came up with a unique design that met our needs but was cost effective. Debbie G. submitted drawings and estimates. Her crews were superb. She worked right along with the gardeners and supervised the tree trimmers, etc., Project came in under estimate.."

Gravel and Green
Landscape Architects and Designers in Los Angeles, CA
"I would give Bret 5 stars! The quote was adherred to the project, the clean up after work was completed, the choice of plants was perfect ans on.y 1 small one had to be replaced which was done and the overall design was beautiful and met my vision! My timing with workers had to be flexible as I had simultaneous projects going on and Bret acconmmodated for this without frustration. All items remain healthy and many stop to compliment the work. I would highly reccommend Gravel and Green."

ecocentrix landscape architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Los Angeles, CA
"The team of Ecocentrix did an amazing job of transforming my yard into a beautiful garden. I spend many hours outside enjoying their work. They continue to support me and my garden even after the initial work was completed. They have an understanding and appreciation of repurposing existing materials and plants. I was listened to but also advised in areas where my inexperience was obvious. I always recommend Ecocentrix to friends who are looking to beautify their property."

Barefoot Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Los Angeles, CA
"Pia did a great job designing and installing our new drought-tolerant landscaping. She listened to us when we described what we wanted and was flexible in changing the design to accommodate changes required by our homeowners association and our anticipated use of the property. She picked plants that provide us with a wide variety of color and texture and with different blooming seasons, so that our gardens will be always colorful and changing. She and her team also worked very efficiently, and she coordinated very well with the contractor who we hired to pull up our lawns and cut up parts of our concrete patio in accordance with Pia's designs."

BE Landscape Design

"Beth provided a wonderful landscape design and creation program for our home. Taking our tastes, budget and timing into account, she came up with designs that were creative and realistic. She oversaw the job from beginning to end and was always available to answer questions or to help make last minute changes without a problem. Everything that was supposed to be done was completed as imagined and on schedule. Beth was not only exceptionally professional and ethical, but very enjoyable to work with. We were very, very pleased with the process and the results. I would recommend her services to anyone."

Lost West
Landscape Architects and Designers in Los Angeles, CA
"To everyone with a yard ! You should see mine. Paul Nota and his Lost West team gave us a beautiful view to admire in both the front and back yards. He took our backyard from a blank canvas to the south of France. My back yard has an in-ground, tiled, rectangle pool centered in the view with a provincial grey pebble surround. The yard is flanked with greenery and a unique basket-weave fence constructed by Paul. All of the plants he brought in 5 years ago are still thriving and right now in full bloom. We are living with orange blossoms and lavender scents among other herbs and perennials. Our front yard was mostly planted at the time, but not doing well. Paul put in a professional grade watering system and added more plants. It was such a pleasure and so easy to work with Paul. I highly recommend Lost West to improve your home and garden."

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 Los Angeles, CA house. From there the Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles, 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 Los Angeles, 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?
