Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Pleasant Hill, CA
Envision Landscape Studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in Pleasant Hill, 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)"

Huettl Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Pleasant Hill, CA
"Our experience working with Joe and his crew has been wonderful from design to installation. Joe met with us, took our initial idea and created a yard that captures the modern aesthetic of our Eichler home. Without him, small but important details would have been missed like pebble strips in the driveway, the honed cement block walls, and the simple cut out for the front fountain. Each is a small or simple item, but those details help make the project. We loved the front yard plan so much, we also had him do our backyard. And it is just as spectacular. People drive by our house and stop to look at the yard. Joe made sure all our concerns were addressed from drainage to the color of flowers. We gave him our budget and he stayed within it while providing a phenomenal project. His construction crew were also great to work with. They showed up on time, they left the site clean each day and kept us up to date on any changes or delays. Joe was at the site often to make sure we were happy with the progress, the plants, the layout, etc. When we did make some changes in the design Joe made the changes quickly, easily and perfectly. If this sounds like we are impressed with Huettl Landscape Architecture we are. Not only does he have a phenomenal design aesthetic, but he has a hardworking, experienced crew that is very capable of executing his designs which in our project included steel troweled stucco walls, masonry block walls, a custom deck, slate patio, pebble tile inset strips and 2 custom water features. We highly recommend Huettl Architecture. "

Garden Lights Landscape and Pool Development Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Pleasant Hill, CA
"I only had a bid done for a landscaping project, but was very happy with the information provided by Garden Lights. They made a home available to me to see their work, which I appreciated. In the end, we decided to put off the project, but I thought the bid process with Garden Lights was very professional."

"Great Vision!!! Professional!!! Delivers!!! Tom definitely knows what he is doing. He really knows how to brainstorm with your ideas while using his expertise to help you design your unique dream landscape. More importantly, he was able to help me fully see and understand what he had envisioned for my project. He demonstrated his attention to details thru his graphics and explanations of everything from the hardscape to the foliage. This led me to be was very confident in his work to get the project started. The best part about working with TH Norton Landscape, was that he executed what he proposed. He made sure the project would be completed smoothly and quickly, while upholding his high standards in every detail.

Jonathan Espalin Landscape Designs

"Jonathan did a great landscape re-design for us. Working around the hard-scape that existed and incorporating our ideas along with his expertise and knowledge, he created a plan that was sensible, practical, and beautiful. The plan included several native and drought resistant plants in a challenging shaded yard. We are really happy with the results. Dave & Katherine"

Keith Willig Landscape Services, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Pleasant Hill, 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."

Native Sun Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Pleasant Hill, 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!"

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 Pleasant Hill, CA house. From there the Pleasant Hill 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 Pleasant Hill 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 Pleasant Hill, 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 Pleasant Hill, 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?
