Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, CA
Native Sun Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, 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!"

Miller Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, CA
"Sue Miller of Miller Landscape Architecture took our weedy, uneven, unusable backyard and transformed it into a beautiful terraced garden perfect for relaxing and entertaining. She patiently listened to our thoughts and concerns, and designed and developed a plan that reflects our lifestyle. We now have expansive outdoor living space that fully suits our needs, including native plant gardens, lawn, horseshoe pit play area, deck/pergola, multiple flights of custom cut flagstone stairs, and a flagstone patio. We benefitted from Sue's design talent and construction experience, as well as her ease in working with contractors. She kept us updated throughout a multi-phased construction process, while providing suggestions and soliciting our input. We highly recommend working with Miller Landscape Architecture."

"Vicky has presented & completed several projects for my garden in the last several years. She is a great communicator, has great ideas & is completely reliable."

Lazar Landscape Design and Construction
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, CA
"Fantastic experience with this landscape design and construction company! Our particular designer (Pam Cosce) was knowledgeable and professional in all meetings and we couldnt be happier with the results! No issues with deadlines--everyone that worked our site was extremely nice, professional and timely. Entire process from design to excavation to completion for our $100,000+ project was less than 9 months (design changes/plans and the city approvals took the longest time--probably 5-6 months.) Overall--very happy and highly recommend!"

Ian Moore Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, 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."

Ferdinand Castillo Landscape Architect
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, CA
"Ferdi Castillo is an amazing talent with landscape design, who also happens to be kind, warm and funny too. A delight to work with and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. Our home has a very difficult site, a huge elevation gain/drop, limited space, just a weird, bizarre site. What he created surpassed anything I could ever come up with and he was very flexible with our limited budget. We now are using our space so much more efficiently than ever before. He is so easy to talk to and work with, we were sad when our project ended with him. I would absolutely recommend him. Friends of ours, neighbors, etc. come over and notice our big changes and ask who the genius is behind it: Ferdi Castillo. Hire him, your yard (and family) will thank you!"

Growsgreen Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, CA
"We worked about a year ago with Beth at Growsgreen. Our garden is mostly modern, with large concrete retainers, but the previous owner hadn't done much with the landscaping. We knew we wanted a low maintenance garden with mostly succulents but needed someone to complete the vision and help us bring it all together. That's when Beth came to the rescue! After an initial meeting and walkthrough, she emailed us her recommendations and quote. Her quote was comparable to a couple of other landscape designers we spoke to, but her responsiveness and professionalism were highly superior, so we decided to work with her. In less than a month, she had turned our sad garden into a beautiful haven to come home to! It's been now a year and our garden is better than ever, as some of the plants are growing into the space, just as Beth had predicted. The vines are starting to wrap around our stairs nicely, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Beth was absolutely great to work with, always on time, stayed within budget, and is extremely pleasant to be around. We highly recommend her!"

Farallon Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, CA
"We have worked with Mathew at Farallon Gardens for over 2 years. He designed and planted around our newly installed swimming pool in Alamo and has performed the maintenance as well. We love it! Very thoughtful, listens to what you like and gives great suggestions. We would highly recommend Mathew and Farallon Gardens!"

DPG Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, CA
"The best thing about working with DPG Design is that they make the process fun and enjoyable. I needed an entire re-design of my front yard, driveway and entry, which is a big project. The team at DPG Design is so friendly and helpful that the process of creating the perfect design was a breeze, and the result was more than I expected. My package included 3D designs showing the project during the day, at dusk and at night so I could see what the landscape lighting would look like. I’m very very happy with my design!"

Simmonds & Associates, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Piedmont, CA
"I've had the pleasure to work with Simmonds & Associates on a number of projects. Their work is absolutely stunning. Their landscapes are like walking into beautiful sanctuaries where one can escape from the stresses of life. In fact, I hated to leave their projects sites! Yet, what I enjoyed most in working with Warren and Alex was watching their client interactions. They truly listen to their clients and as a result their clients rave about them. Whereas other landscape architects take their brand and stamp it onto a client's property, Simmonds & Associates work to transform their client's vision into a reality. If you want a Landscape Architect who will listen, work as your partner and help you transform your vision into a beautify sanctuary using cutting edge sustainability practices - Simmonds & Associates is the ideal firm."

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