Featured Reviews for San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers

Nicole Fox Landscape Architecture
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
December 28, 2017
“I recently had the pleasure of working with Nicole Fox Landscape Architecture for a major landscaping project at my home in San Mateo, CA. The project budget was over $200,000 and involved the design and construction of a new deck, paver patio, landscaping, lighting, irrigation, and fencing. Being a construction professional myself, who routinely manages projects from conceptual design through completion, I had high expectations for the design team and contractor selected for the project. From our first meeting, Nicki did an excellent job at helping us identify and communicate the goals of the project. Thoughtful questions during the conceptual design phase produced a great dialogue between us, allowing for a collaborative experience where we could explore many design options. I was very precise in how I wanted our new deck to function. From the construction of the railing system, to the placement of the support posts, I wanted it to be perfect. Nicki was very patient and created multiple space plan options, allowing us to fine tune our design and arrive at the ideal configuration. Not only did Nicki collaborate well with me and my wife, she was also very open to the ideas of our contractor. She took the time to appreciate the opinions of others and provide feedback that allowed for great teamwork throughout the project. The detail of her construction documents were essential to the contractor’s bid and minimized any surprises encountered during construction. Nicki far exceeded all of my expectations. I would highly recommend Nicki for future projects and am grateful she was able to help us create an amazing landscape.”
Patrick Lannan Designs
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
February 24, 2016
“As many of you know Northern California is having its worst drought in pretty much ever. So in helping to conserve water, my hubby and I decided to remove our lawn while using the city of Napa's cash for grass incentive. The incentive pays you back $1 for each square foot of lawn you remove. I'd recommend looking into this in your own city to see whats available. With the lawn coming out we decided to take the opportunity to make some drastic changes to the exterior of our home including painting, lighting, new front door and of course landscaping. While choosing paint colors and fixtures is easy for me, designing a landscape is not. So I reached out to my FB friends and received a recommendation for Patrick Lannan Designs. After seeing his portfolio we were thrilled at the chance to work with someone so talented. Let me just say, from design to installation Patrick was a dream to work with. Not only is he a professional but he's also an excellent communicator and project coordinator. He and his team got the plantings in but also irrigation and lighting systems installed in the course of a weekend (take a look at the night time photos). One of the fun things of the process was walking through Flora Grubb with Patrick as our guide. This place is super cool! He showed us amazing plants and succulents that would work great in Napa. It's a lot warmer in Napa so it was important that the selections matched our climate. As you can see from the photos our project turned out to be pretty amazing. Patricks keen eye for color, shape and detail helped to take our boring beige house and turn into the jewel of the neighborhood. If you're not sure what to do with your landscaping I'd highly recommend reaching out to Patrick.”
Gigi McAdam Landscape Design
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
October 8, 2013
“Gigi provided me with a complete landscape design , displaying all the flowers and trees that we discussed and where they were being placed. She ordered all the plants and materials from the nursery. She introduced me to the the gardner that she works with, who did all the sprinklers, irrigation,new lawn and the planting. She was there when delivery was made and did an inventory of all the plants. Gigi oversaw the project till the very end and updated me on any time changes. As far as customer satisfaction, she was superb and I felt that I could call her or email her at any time. Lastly, she gave me an estimate in the very beginning, and stuck to it throughout the project unless I made any changes. I would highly recommend her landscape design company to anyone.”
The Garden Route Company
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
July 19, 2011
“The design/build team at Garden Route are impressive. Rich and Sandy's designs are contemporary and liveable, and always striking and interesting. The designs are enhanced by an environmental consciousness regarding the use of water and the use of plants such as native plants and grasses that do not require regular maintenance and a chemical regime to sustain. They have an outstanding knowledge of useful and innovative materials for their designs. They create conceptually interesting gardens where the complexity and thought that goes into the design and construction supports eminently liveable spaces.”
The Foxy Garden
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
September 22, 2015
“Audrey is great! Creative, knowledgeable and fun. She will work with you to create something unique and lasting. She has done two projects for us and continues to do the on-going maintenance to keep the garden fresh and lively. She cares about soil health, plant growth and is also knowledgable about water systems and the latest in drought irrigation technology.”
Landsystems Landscapes
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
November 9, 2012
“This past summer we hired Landsystems Landscapes to design a backyard retreat for our family. We wanted a space that would be both beautiful and functional, a place for us to entertain our family and friends, but also serve as a private oasis to escape for some peace and quiet. Landsystems were exactly the right people for our job. Not only are they landscape architects, but they’re also contractors. So we knew that if we liked their design ideas we could also hire them to complete the construction too. At first, I worried that hiring landscape designers meant hiring other people’s own personal styles, choices and ideas. I also worried we would be giving up input as to the direction things would go or what we wanted for our space. However, with Landsystems Landscape this was never the case. From their detailed online project questionnaire to multiple design meetings at our house to gain a better understanding of our wants, needs, likes and dislikes Landsystems Landscapes has made the whole design process a collaborative effort that has been both enjoyable and educational. We have felt guided and informed throughout the entire process, never pushed or strayed away from our own likes and the things most important to us. They made sure that we understood each step and felt comfortable and confident with each choice and decision we made. Every person from the Landsystems’ team was professional, respectful, reliable and knowledgeable. In addition, the Landsystems’ personnel made us feel important and valued. They took the time to listen, explain and answer any and all questions we had, even if we asked the same question before or maybe needed a little more explanation or information before feeling completely confident and comfortable with our decision. Of course, a huge factor in our project was budget…everyone has one and everyone is trying to stick to it! Budget was something that we discussed with Landsystems early on in the design process. It was a constant topic and reference point that helped guide our decisions. Landsystems worked very closely with us to stay within our budget without compromising the beautiful design they had created for our backyard. By the end we knew exactly what work was going to be done, how much it was going to cost us and what the final product was going to look like. We were so pleased with Landsystems Landscapes that after the completion of the design process we hired them to implement their creative vision and construct our new backyard. Demolition began a couple weeks ago and we couldn’t be happier with the company, crew and workmanship.”
Design Focus International
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
January 21, 2013
“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
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
February 2, 2013
“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.”
Elements Landscape Inc
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
February 17, 2013
“Jim is incredible hard-working, diligent, knowledgeable, flexible and conscientious. He loves his work and it shows. My husband and I very much enjoyed the collaborative experience we shared with him while landscaping our new home. Jim has great vision and saved us from many potential mistakes and added a ton of value to our project. On top of everything, we enjoyed our meetings with him because he is a great guy and very personable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any project.”
Simmonds & Associates, Inc.
San Francisco, CA Landscape Architects and Designers
October 29, 2015
“I've had the pleasure to work with Simmonds & Associates on a number of projects. Their work is absolutely stunning. Their landscapes are like walking into beautiful sanctuaries where one can escape from the stresses of life. In fact, I hated to leave their projects sites! Yet, what I enjoyed most in working with Warren and Alex was watching their client interactions. They truly listen to their clients and as a result their clients rave about them. Whereas other landscape architects take their brand and stamp it onto a client's property, Simmonds & Associates work to transform their client's vision into a reality. If you want a Landscape Architect who will listen, work as your partner and help you transform your vision into a beautify sanctuary using cutting edge sustainability practices - Simmonds & Associates is the ideal firm.”
