Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Saratoga, CA
Casa Smith Designs, LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Saratoga, CA
"Catherine is responsible for the car-stopping landscape at our home! She did an incredible job of recommending a beautiful plant design, purchasing the plants and materials and overseeing the installation as well as the soil preparation. She chose unique plants that thrive in the environments in which they are planted. Our yard is striking, functional and thriving. I have recommended to several friends who are also very pleased with her work. She first designed our yard for Spring, 2011 and again for our fall planting. We literally have people stopping and asking for her card."

Gardenart Group

"An excellent landscape designer. Worked with me to provide a design that helped me express myself.........when I didn't even know that was happening. He took a small lot in a nice neighborhood with 1960;s tract housing and made it look large, restful, private and at the same time accessible & inviting to neighbors passing by."

Design Focus International
Landscape Architects and Designers in Saratoga, CA
"Rebecca Dye, landscape architect at Design Focus, designed a beautiful, functional, ecological, and dog friendly front and backyard that wonderfully transformed the look of my home. Her knowledge of every aspect of plant design and her artistic skill was just amazing. I asked for gardens full of color and I have color virtually all year long. Her staff and crew were also excellent. Rebecca was very involved in every step of the project and she was always checking to make sure everything was up to her high standards. The end result was everything I had hoped for and more."

Greenblott Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Saratoga, CA
"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."

Envision Landscape Studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in Saratoga, 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)"

Eve Castles Design

"We selected Eve Castles Design and Paul Daniels Design to collaborate on the design of our back yard. Eve and Paul really take the time to listen and understand what is important to you for your back yard experience. Their design plan, contracted to Solid Rock Landscape to implement, exceeded our expectations. We now have a beautiful, low maintenance, drought-resistant back yard complimenting our house remodel that we enjoy sharing with our family and friends. We highly recommend Eve, Paul and Solid Rock."

KL Designs Residential Landscape Planning LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Saratoga, CA
"We found Kim after putting together a design book on Looking through the photos, we had chosen 4 of Kim's design photos completely by accident. We reached out to her and setup an appointment to get together. She is extremely professional, explained her services, what we could expect to pay and provided references and sample design schematics from other jobs. The thing that struck us right away is that she was walking our property identifying all the plants by their scientific names and could explain why each one was doing well or doing poorly. After hiring her, she took very detailed measurements, photos and ground samples. She look through the Houzz book we created, asked us questions about how we intended to use different aspects of our space and generally get a feel for what we liked and wanted. She came back with an initial design which we reviewed in person and the first draft was great. We had a few changes and she went off to make some changes, etc. She had researched everything about our property including local zoning set-back requirements! She was awesome and we're very pleased with the final design. We are currently getting bids for landscape builders to make our final vision come to life and look forward to showing the pictures of her amazing work when we're able to!"

Just in Thyme Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Saratoga, CA
"I can't speak highly enough about Just in Thyme Landscape Design. Gina is a consummate professional and extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of landscape design. Her communication skills are top-notch -- she always responds quickly to emails, phone calls, texts and she is adept at sharing ideas and concepts in a clear manner with a layperson. Throughout our project, I found Gina to be creative, thoughtful, and thorough in her approach to our landscaping design. And the icing on the cake is just how nice she is and how fun it is to spend time with her. I give her my strongest recommendation."

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