Featured Reviews for San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers

Nicole Fox Landscape Architecture
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
December 28, 2017
I recently had the pleasure of working with Nicole Fox Landscape Architecture for a major landscaping project at my home in San Mateo, CA. The project budget was over $200,000 and involved the design and construction of a new deck, paver patio, landscaping, lighting, irrigation, and fencing. Being a construction professional myself, who routinely manages projects from conceptual design through completion, I had high expectations for the design team and contractor selected for the project. From our first meeting, Nicki did an excellent job at helping us identify and communicate the goals of the project. Thoughtful questions during the conceptual design phase produced a great dialogue between us, allowing for a collaborative experience where we could explore many design options. I was very precise in how I wanted our new deck to function. From the construction of the railing system, to the placement of the support posts, I wanted it to be perfect. Nicki was very patient and created multiple space plan options, allowing us to fine tune our design and arrive at the ideal configuration. Not only did Nicki collaborate well with me and my wife, she was also very open to the ideas of our contractor. She took the time to appreciate the opinions of others and provide feedback that allowed for great teamwork throughout the project. The detail of her construction documents were essential to the contractor’s bid and minimized any surprises encountered during construction. Nicki far exceeded all of my expectations. I would highly recommend Nicki for future projects and am grateful she was able to help us create an amazing landscape.
Roushall Gardens

Tina Roushall is a top notch landscap designer. She is pleasant, intelligent, creative and responsive. Tina listens to her client's requests, researches plants, materials and ideas, and presents them for client's review in conceptual design options with good cost estimations. For every aspect of the job, Tina has several resources she can recommend for clients to interview. While your project is underway, Tina stays in contact with the client and the contractors, physically checking in. When we felt an installed item didn't represent our idea of what something should look like, Tina was on the phone with the installer and on the job site within the hour, assisting in evaluation and change to our liking. When I came up with a new hard scape idea to add to our project mid install, Tina was on the phone with the contractor arranging solutions to my request. Tina is what one would hope for in a perfect landscape designer relationship. We have recommended her to several of our friends who are using her services as well.

Audrey is great! Creative, knowledgeable and fun. She will work with you to create something unique and lasting. She has done two projects for us and continues to do the on-going maintenance to keep the garden fresh and lively. She cares about soil health, plant growth and is also knowledgable about water systems and the latest in drought irrigation technology.
Simmonds & Associates, Inc.
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
October 29, 2015
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.
Kristen Rudger Landscape Design
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
February 12, 2013
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!

Jim is incredible hard-working, diligent, knowledgeable, flexible and conscientious. He loves his work and it shows. My husband and I very much enjoyed the collaborative experience we shared with him while landscaping our new home. Jim has great vision and saved us from many potential mistakes and added a ton of value to our project. On top of everything, we enjoyed our meetings with him because he is a great guy and very personable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any project.
Alder Group, Pool and Landscape Co.
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
August 29, 2011
I just completed a remodel of my pool and landscaping with the Alder Group, and simply stated I could not be happier. From the first meeting until the project was completed, Don always looked for ways to improve the project and at the same time ways to minimize the cost of the project. His keen eye for design saw needed simple improvements that were relatively inexpensive but had a massive effect on the overall beauty of the project. Perhaps most importantly when the manufacturer delivered the wrong custom coping, and I worried that we would not be able to meet the deadline of a large party that was planned for my backyard; Don found a way to resolve the issue and keep the job on schedule. Don is truly one of the good guys.

Eric and Mae were the commensurate professionals from the begining of design to landscape completion. They had a consistent presence on-site to monitor work crews and hands on particpation to enusre the very best results...always paying great attention to detail. Also,It was very important to us to save and relocate most of the existing plantings to newly created beds. Eric and Mae did a wonderful, conscientious job of accomplishing that. Best of all, we can look out of any window in our house and see beautiful gardens, rustic decking, and majestic Maine-like boulders...just what we wanted.
Patrick Lannan Designs
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
February 24, 2016
As many of you know Northern California is having its worst drought in pretty much ever. So in helping to conserve water, my hubby and I decided to remove our lawn while using the city of Napa's cash for grass incentive. The incentive pays you back $1 for each square foot of lawn you remove. I'd recommend looking into this in your own city to see whats available. With the lawn coming out we decided to take the opportunity to make some drastic changes to the exterior of our home including painting, lighting, new front door and of course landscaping. While choosing paint colors and fixtures is easy for me, designing a landscape is not. So I reached out to my FB friends and received a recommendation for Patrick Lannan Designs. After seeing his portfolio we were thrilled at the chance to work with someone so talented. Let me just say, from design to installation Patrick was a dream to work with. Not only is he a professional but he's also an excellent communicator and project coordinator. He and his team got the plantings in but also irrigation and lighting systems installed in the course of a weekend (take a look at the night time photos). One of the fun things of the process was walking through Flora Grubb with Patrick as our guide. This place is super cool! He showed us amazing plants and succulents that would work great in Napa. It's a lot warmer in Napa so it was important that the selections matched our climate. As you can see from the photos our project turned out to be pretty amazing. Patricks keen eye for color, shape and detail helped to take our boring beige house and turn into the jewel of the neighborhood. If you're not sure what to do with your landscaping I'd highly recommend reaching out to Patrick.
Keith Willig Landscape Architecture, Inc.
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
May 9, 2015
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.
