Thank you, thank you, thank you. You MORE than met my expectations!""

DesignIntent
Landscape Architects and Designers in Sausalito, CA
"My name is Jesus Medina Owner of Medina Multiservices Inc. dba Medina Lawn Care TX. I worked with Ruhina on a landscaping project which we took a bland back yard and made into the most beautiful high end California style yard here in the heart of Texas. I really liked the attention to detail she used and I enjoyed even with all challenges involved bringing this project from paper... to life. The customers were very satisfied and we stayed within the budget proposed making it better for all of us. I would work with Ruhina anytime were she to ask me to. Great job and Thanks for the opportunity to work with you!"

Kate Michels Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Sausalito, CA
"Kate completely redesigned the landscaping of our hillside lot, turning it into a wonderful place to entertain as well as enjoying quiet moments. Her design made the most of the best features of our property and combined a low maintenance garden with the opportunity to putter around as an amateur gardener. She did a meticulous job of planning and managing the construction process. She is very efficient, communicates very well and is cost conscious too. I have complete confidence that her design and execution are sound and beautiful. We will be grateful to her for years of enjoyment.."

Scenic Landscape and Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Sausalito, CA
"I engaged Scenic L&D (previously dba Pretty Patios) in 2009, and on a couple of occasions since, to redesign & replant extensive parts of my garden. The work included a lot of plant selection, the installation of a terraced stone & slate patio, and other landscape enhancements in a large old hillside garden. Launa Taylor is a knowledgeable and imaginative designer. She is conscientious, honest & fun to work with. Initially I thought she was expensive, until I compared her bills to the cost of similar projects in Marin County, when I realized her prices were quite reasonable. Her crew chief, Saul, is the best garden worker of the many I've employed over the past 25 years."

"Regina designed and executed a landscape rennovation of my mid century modern home, including the addition of a large vegetable garden, a back patio area, the entry and front yard. She was professional and fun to work with, and came with various crews and subs who did a great job. She had terrific ideas. My yard is fabulous!"

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

Studio Wildwood
Landscape Architects and Designers in Sausalito, CA
"Studio Wildwood built a fabulous creek with waterfalls in my front yard. I have a gentle downslope and had hoped to replace a man made tiered concrete water feature with something natural looking using the hillside. What I got was so much more than what I had expected. Joe is a true artist. He designed it with little input from me as a small creek with 4 water drops running under a bridge. It is very serene and sounds enticing and soothing. Joe gave excellent advice and suggestions for the landscaping and was meticulous in all of his work. I strongly recommend using Studio Wildwood for your landscaping design and installation."

Arterra Landscape Architects

"As an architect, I've been fortunate to work with Vera & Kate on a number of projects over the years, including at my own house. They are nimble and attentive, and able to work in many settings."

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