Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Tara Hills, CA
Envision Landscape Studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tara Hills, 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)"

Keith Willig Landscape Services, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tara Hills, 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."

Dig Your Garden Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tara Hills, CA
"I am DELIGHTED with my garden and appreciate all the hard word that Eileen put into the design and installation. It's in full bloom and I LOVE it. I often wander out in the morning or afternoon to talk to the flowers, or sit on the bench and enjoy the view. It's so serene and relaxing, it's EXACTLY what I wanted. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You MORE than met my expectations!""

Verdance Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tara Hills, CA
"I have had the pleasure of installing 2 projects designed by Verdance Landscape Design. John brought me in on both projects to do preliminary cost estimates which blossomed into construction contracts. John was extremely easy to work with as we co-labored to bring the homeowner's vision into reality. We share a passion for landscaping and are both interested in every little detail so that the final product is something we can take personal pride in. Whenever I had a question or was concerned about something he was readily available to help and give his direction and input. I would highly recommend John if you value great, well thought out design and someone who can take your project all the way through completion. I look forward to installing many more of Verdance's Award Winning landscapes in the future."

Garden Lights Landscape and Pool Development Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tara Hills, 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."

Native Sun Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tara Hills, 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!"

Jake Moss Designs
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tara Hills, CA
"Jake Moss is, hands down, the best contractor with which we have ever worked. He provides a complete estimate, does what he says he'll do, and remains in regular communication with you as the work is progressing. We initially hired Jake three years ago to design a lawn-less front yard, and it is absolutely stunning. We then hired him to do side and back yard work, culminating in an outdoor kitchen last summer, which is amazing. I only wish Jake worked inside, as we'd hire him for more! It is so nice to work with a smart, creative, and practical contractor. He has great ideas, and he's at his best when he gets to design, so my advice would be to let him contribute that to your project - you won't be sorry!"

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 Tara Hills, CA house. From there the Tara Hills 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 Tara Hills 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 Tara Hills, 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 Tara Hills, 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?
