SSA Landscape Architects is a 29 year firm with 6 licensed landscape architects backed by the founder's 43 years of experience in design and construction. We provide landscape architectural services for residential, commercial, corporate and public clients looking for superior service, innovative design and solutions for complex challenges.
SSA is conveniently located just outside of downtown Santa Cruz. Our offices are filled with music and fun, and aside from the occasional Pandora radio station scuffle, we maintain a happy, vibrant team of supremely talented designers and architects. We foster the success of each individual as well as an exciting work environment. We strive to provide the same experience for our clients as we work together to create beautiful landscapes.
Stationed in the northeast corner of the Old Sash Mill complex, our beautiful, spacious office is an inspirational environment for our clients to visit and our employees to work in, not to mention it is well-equipped with everyone’s favorite beverage of choice, including a variety of coffees, teas and creamers. If you are lucky enough to visit our office at the right time, you’ll also get to smell the sweet scent of fresh baked cookies infiltrating our office from Pacific Cookie Company next door.
Aside from our love of coffee and cookies, we love making our clients happy. We constantly receive heartfelt reactions and positive feedback upon completion of our projects, something we cherish. It is our lifeblood, it reminds us of why we’re here, and it keeps us doing what we love to do. Landscape design takes time. Sometimes it can be years from project kickoff to groundbreaking. Along the way, our clients become some of our best friends.
We want to get to know you and learn about your vision and your goals. By listening to your needs, we establish strong relationships that last beyond the life of our projects. We encourage you to reach out to us or stop by our office. Walk us through your ideas, and let us show you how we can turn your dreams into reality.
