Promised Path Landscaping Inc
Landscape Architects & Designers in San Marcos
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJune 2, 2013
We needed a landscape to make a three generation family happy: a play area, an adult retreat, a gardening area, and night time gathering place. Promised Path completed more than 1200 man hours of landscaping in five and a half weeks installing drainage, a three foot high retaining wall more than 75 feet long, a water and fire feature, front and rear landscaping and lighting, sidewalks and patios made with concrete and pavers, veggie boxes, and sprinkler system. Our landscaping has been described by friends as park-like, peaceful, useful, and tasteful. The landscaping project was carried out in a seamless and timely manner due to awesome professional leadership and planning. The landscape plan was enhanced by an in house horticultural professional who helped us select appropriate plants to get our desired effect. During the project we were continually tweeking the plan with the contractor to render the best outcome. Angel Carrasco, the contractor, is a man of his word who will be a partner in making you a landscape you can be proud of and use day and night.

We hired Gabe to create landscape plans for our front and backyard. We had general ideas about what we wanted, but did not know how to implement them or what materials to use. Gabe was able to take our ideas and turn it into a beautiful design, down to the bushes and plants. Gabe even added additional details, such as a paved sitting area and shrub barrier. We are very excited to see our design turned into reality.

Torrey Pines Landscape Co., Inc
Landscape Architects & Designers in San Marcos
Average rating: 4 out of 5 starsOctober 8, 2014
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,
My Garden: Landscape Design by Wayne
Landscape Architects & Designers in San Marcos
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 28, 2016
I recently bought a home in Irvine. I have a rather large tiled patio space in the back and wanted to do something special with it. But I have no knowledge of plants, which plants would look good, which plants would survive best, and which would require not too much water. I found "My Garden" on and I feel lucky I did. I wanted not only plant advice but also someone who could help me design the space. I wanted not only plants but furniture, a fire pit , and a fountain. Wayne did all that for me. He came over and took measurments. The following week he brought to me a professionally drafted design for my space, complete with a variety recommended plants, pots, furniture , fountain and the best places to get them. This was all for a surprisingly reasonable one-time price. It was exactly the information I needed. Now I can set about to obtain everything and create my dream patio environment at my own pace, and according to my budget. Wayne is a pleasure to work with, very easygoing, not pushy, and he's prompt. An interesting thing about him is his knowledge of horticulture. He's a walking encyclopedia ! He explained to me that he taught and was the founder and program director of the Landscape Technologies Program at Cal Poly University Pomona for 24 years. He was also the founder/director of the Xeriscape Water Conservation Program at UCI. He walked with me through my garden and told me the names of all of my existing plants, even he rare ones with both their common as well as their botanical names : "This is a Dombeya Wallichii " "That is a Dizygotheca" etc etc etc for every single plant in my garden. I was awed !! He rattled off the names as readily and matter-of-factly as if I had asked him if the sun was shining. And it was ! I can't say enough about Wayne !!
Ornamental Gardens by Lisa

We met with several landscape designers once we made the decision to remove our beautiful front lawn and replace it with a low water, low maintenance landscape. We had always received compliments on our landscaping, and wanted to replace it with a unique design that we not only liked, but loved! Lisa listened to our ideas, creating different designs for us to review. After a couple of back-and-forth revisions, we felt very good about the design we selected. Lisa helped us find a contractor to complete the work, and stayed involved throughout the process. The final product exceeded our expectations! From the slate front porch to the accent stacked stone wall and recirculating fountain, the hardscape she designed set the background for a beautiful, colorful landscape with a variety of carefully selected plants. Based upon her work throughout the process, we decided to hire her for our ongoing quarterly maintenance as well. We would definitely recommend Lisa for landscape design and maintenance!

To All Concerned - I had the opportunity to work with Integration Design Studio on a pool complex addition project that my HOA community had considered. On behalf of the Sunny Creek HOA board and pool committee, I can say that Larry Sheehan had gone above and beyond what we had expected from him and his colleagues in their preparation of a formal feasibility bid that was presented to us. Their attention to detail, proposed designs, and professional and timely follow up were well beyond expections. I would gladly refer IDS to any community or individual looking for a landscape architect design services. Regards, Bob O'Toole
The Design Build Company
Landscape Architects & Designers in San Marcos
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsAugust 29, 2012
We have relied on Hill's Landscapes: The Design Build Company (Robert Hill General Contractor) for over twenty five years. Robert Hill has a talent for solving design problems that stump everyone else. The first case, 1987, was a pool in a situation where we had given up until we contacted Robert Hill. His design has been admired by everyone who has seen it and has been a joy to us ever since. He also designed a new driveway and retaining wall for us in a very difficult setting. Again, his design has drawn much praise. His crews are friendly, hard working and competent.

Brad designed our backyard, complete with pool and cabana. He is very professional, and was able to take the very general ideas and feedback that my husband I provided, and turn them into a design that even we could not have imagined. Brad was very patient with us, and worked through providing different ideas and recommendations that we had not even previously considered. He definitely helped us to make the best use of all of our backyard space, and bring in the design elements to help it flow with the rest of our house, while also maximizing the beautiful views we have. I highly recommend hiring Brad to do your designs for any project, and then using that design to shop around for a qualified contractor. His rates are very reasonable, and having the design done in advance has saved us a TON of headaches and a lot of money. It also ensured we received apples-to-apples quotes that we were able to interpret, compare and used to make our informed decision. And I must say, the YouTube videos he produces are awesome! Really help you live in the space before it is even started, to help ensure you are making all of the right decisions to bring your vision to life. Money VERY well spent!!!
