Sage Ecological Landscapes
San Luis Obispo, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 8, 2021
Sage designed and installed an entire backyard for us. We could not be more pleased with the result. Working with Sage was a pleasure. We did not have a concept for the design, so Sage discussed options with us and came up with an initial design based on features we were interested in, plants we liked in their display garden and our target budget. They were very flexible and responsive when we wanted to make minor changes to the design. The installation went very smoothly. We were impressed with the quality of the work and the quality of the materials and plants that they sourced. The yard looks fantastic as the plants have started to fill in and we could not be happier that we chose to use Sage.
Carmichael Environmental
San Luis Obispo, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJanuary 3, 2015
We first met Joshua Carmichael while he was working for another company. We felt his passion and commitment at our first meeting and never regretted hiring him. He was our designer and supervisor for a major landscaping job. First of all, he lives what he preaches -- he advocates the use of low maintenance native plantings that thrive on very little attention and water. He listened to our budget concerns and worked with us and encouraged our creativity by incorporating our ideas in a smart and pleasing way. His knowledge and attitude are his best qualities - they instilled confidence in us - we knew we were making good decisions about our home's outdoor living spaces. We have absolutely no regrets or second thoughts about any part of the design or plantings. We now think our outdoor living area is the best part of our home. We have continued our professional relationship with Joshua. He has installed a gorgeous vegetable and herb garden. He provides ongoing maintenance, and has instructed us regarding edible gardens and landscaping. We are now planning future projects with him. We can recommend Carmichael Environmental with pride and have no hesitation is saying that he provides excellent service for a fair price. Carmichael Environmental works with you blending their passion for outdoor beauty and function with your inspiration and vision to create a happy, welcoming outdoor space.
Ecotones Landscapes, Inc.

Our 30-year-old landscaping was in desperate need of revitalization. Greg created a beautiful design for our front yard. His team installed water wise plants, a new drip system, landscape lighting, boulders, a dry creek, and a new brick walkway from the curb to the front of the house. In our back yard they replaced our uneven brick walkway with a new decomposed granite pathway and added new plantings to add interest to a neglected corner of the yard. Greg communicated with us frequently throughout the entire process; from the creation of the design to the completion of the installation. He was always pleasant, on time for our meetings and patiently responded to our many questions in a timely manner. He was on the job site frequently to consult with his installation team; checking on progress and ensuring that the plan was being executed to his specifications. The installation team was skilled and very courteous. Our project was completed on time and on budget. We are very pleased with our yards and have received many compliments from friends and neighbors. They are beautiful, peaceful spaces that will only improve over time as the plantings mature. The Ecotones Landscaping maintenance team has managed our yards since the installation was completed. This team takes care of absolutely everything for us. We have peace of mind knowing that we can enjoy our outdoor spaces carefree. We highly recommend Greg Frugoli and his Ecotones Landscaping team for any landscape project and/or ongoing maintenance. It is an absolute pleasure to work with them!
Mike-o Design
San Luis Obispo, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 24, 2015
Mike is an amazing designer. I first met him at his Spanish style house that he had completely remodeled inside and out. I was awestruck. The detail and craftsmanship in every part of the house was clearly thought out to create a home that is simply a work of art. It was beautiful. Since then I've hired him to remodel our 1950's home and the landscape, as well as an investment property that we decided to sell. On our home Mike listened to our ideas and transformed what we tried to communicated about our taste in design into a functional beautiful environment that we love. He redesigned our kitchen, living room, bathroom and master bedroom, removing walls, picking out all new cabinets, counter tops and paint as well as new furniture or in many cases having pieces custom made for a fraction of the cost. This is one of his greatest talents. If he can't find a piece of furniture he is looking for, he finds craftsmen that can build it. As for our investment property, when we decided to sell it we hired Mike to come in and do his thing. Without spending too much money he transformed an older town home into a clean, contemporary beautiful property that sold immediately in a somewhat sluggish market.
Madrone Landscapes
San Luis Obispo, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 18, 2013
When we built a new house in Templeton, Madrone built the hardscape and planted the yard our architect designed, and has continued to maintain it. They have done an outstanding job, beginning with the artistic placement of boulders and the graceful arrangement of lighting. The garden has been growing in for about 6 months now (since spring of 2013), and it has been a continuing pleasure to see the succession of beautiful colors and the gradual filling in of beds. The few unsuccessful plants have been quickly replaced, and maintenance has been sensitive in making adjustments. We find the staff invariably responsive, knowledgeable, and generous with their time and advice. With Madrone’s help, we have also recently installed a rainwater catchment system; please feel free to contact us next year to see how it works out.

Addison Landscape & Maintenance, Inc.
San Luis Obispo, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 3, 2012
I am pleased to have the opportunity to write this letter of recommendation for Tyler Addison and Addison Landscape. While I am tempted to tell the entire story of how I chose Addison to take on my landscaping project, suffice it to say that I am SO glad I did. My experience with contractors over the years had my radar up, and I was up front with Tyler regarding my expectations, i.e., professionalism, timeliness, cleanliness, respect for my property, workmanship, attention to detail, honesty, etc. My first impression of Tyler was very positive, and while I’ve learned to trust my gut instincts with people, he was – after all – still a contractor. As our discussions ensued regarding my wants and expectations, design, materials, and the process that would be involved, Tyler quickly rose to the top of the list of other landscape companies and individuals I had considered. Tyler prides himself in performing all workmanship in the highest quality manner, and his crew represents that trait as well. While I had an idea of what I wanted to do with my one acre property, I did not have a “plan,” per se. Not being involved in the business, I felt I didn’t have the language to adequately describe my wishes, but working with Tyler, he “got it.” The project involved tear out of existing lawn and irrigation systems, tear out of a concrete patio slab, installation of large paver patio and pathways, seat walls, gas fire pit, water feature, grill island with pergola, installation of gas grill, installation of new irrigation system for front and back of the property, pathway lighting, lighting in seat walls and grill island, lighting of trees, new plant beds and plants, replacement of property-dividing fence and gates, pergola over one side gate, tear out of front of driveway and replacement with pavers, etc. Every aspect was performed with exacting detail and pride of workmanship. All materials used were of the highest quality - from the Belgard pavers right down to the gate hardware. The irrigation and lighting systems are state of the art and were expertly installed by Tyler’s crew. For the approximate two months that Tyler and his crew worked on my project, I did not have one single complaint about anyone or anything. The crew showed up on time every day, took breaks at the same time every day, cleaned up and left the property as clean and pristine as possible. I was kept apprised on a daily basis of their progress by Tyler and/or his crew. As much as I wanted to get the work finished so I could enjoy my new yard, I actually enjoyed the process – start to finish – and that is mostly due to the quality of people that I was working with. Tyler’s communication with me throughout this project was seamless, including on-site as well as by telephone, email and text. The littlest things were given immediate attention and resolved quickly. Tyler also met with me personally to choose granite for the grill island, some of the trees/plants, the basalt column used for the water feature, fire crystals, and pots for planting on the patio. The finished project is absolutely beautiful – and at night, there’s a bit of magic with the lighting. Tyler Addison and each of his crew exceeded all my expectations, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who can appreciate his level of service.
Botanica Nova
San Luis Obispo, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJune 27, 2018
Working with Nick Wilkinson, Brandon Nelson and their Botanica Nova crew was awesome! I first met with Nick and we discussed my vision for my backyard. He offered great artistic ideas and suggestions. We discussed how this all could be done, staying within my budget, and we came up with a plan. Brandon and the crew put it all physically in place. Because Nick and Brandon are very knowledgeable regarding the microclimate and water restrictions we have here on the Central Coast of California, my yard is filled with beautiful, native, drought tolerant plants. I can't say enough about this company. They are fantastic workers, friendly, courteous and conscientious. I have and will continue recommending them to my friends.

I don't know Mr. Smith personally but had the pleasure to rent two homes to his Cal Poly students. Both of them used our yards as their senior projects! Both did a beautiful job! Used local, Eco friendly, low maintenance, low water plants. They made Mr. Smith proud and us!
