Featured Reviews for San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers

Sage Ecological Landscapes
San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers
Aug 16, 2014
“We had Sage completely redo our front landscape to be drought tolerant with a Mediterranean feel. Tom who designed and worked with use the whole way thru knew exactly what I wanted and was really easy to work with. They took care of any issues along the way and was very professional in everything they did. It was also nice to be able to go directly to their nursery to pick out the plants. Would highly recommend these guys for their service and value”

Montecito Landscape
San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers
Jun 1, 2016
“Montecito landscape is not just any landscape company. Chris & Lisa listened to what I wanted & then to my fantasy ideas & helped me fulfill my dream driveway entrance that I had waited 30 years to do. It looked like it was always there. Their workers have been with them for years & I know why. Amazing job. I'm happy beyond words.”
Sweet Smiling Landscapes
San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers
Sep 1, 2017
“I first hired Natasha of Sweet Smiling Landscapes to do my own home. In the course of doing interior design jobs, I am also requested to do landscaping. I was so pleased with the work she did, I hired her for other jobs, including several water-wise gardens. Natasha was knowledgeable, efficient, honest, and very creative. I will continue to hire her over and over again.”
Ashley Farrell Landscape Design
San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers
Jul 23, 2015
“Ashley Farrell was chosen for our landscape project out of a group of five landscapers that we interviewed. She was the most engaged in our project and her pricing was the fairest out of all of them. Her experience was also a very high factor in our consideration of landscapers. We knew going into this major project that it would be a long term job. We had an acre that had to be made beautiful. First, we had to have everything torn out. Then the hard scape had to done, all new patios, new driveway, retaining walls, remodeled pool etc. Ashley worked as our co-ordinator on everything for us and kept us all sane. Ashley was also the only landscaper that we interviewed that was also hands on. She was there everyday and worked as much or more, with her fabulous crew. Phase two is probably going to start in late winter when she transforms our lower lot into a beautiful 20' X 20' fruit and vegetable garden. All in all we were and are very pleased with Ashley.”
Carmichael Environmental
San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers
Jan 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.”

Scarlett's Landscape, Inc.
San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers
May 20, 2014
“Scarlett's Landscape transformed our yard, not only with beautiful plants, but with a deck, seating wall, and brushed, tinted concrete paths. The plans were drawn by Scarlett's team and they really listened to what types of plants we envisioned and what type of use we wanted from the entertaining area of our yard. The team worked very hard and finished a few days early! They were always professional and friendly and left the yard free from any construction debris. Scarlett's Landscape worked within our budget, even offering creative to make our dollar stretch. I highly recommend this company!”
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates
San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers
Jan 14, 2013
“Margie is brilliant. Because she is design/build she completely understands where the money goes. She is cutting edge and timeless. Her gardens evoke a sense of the romantic without ever being saccharine. You want to stop and wrap yourself in their beauty. Margie deserves all the many, many awards she has received.”
Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture
San Luis Obispo Landscape Architects and Designers
Apr 23, 2012
“I have had the pleasure of working with Jeffrey and the JGS team installing a handfull of his projects over the last several years. It is refreshing to work with a landscape architect who proactively seeks unique plant material and elegantly weaves together a rich palette of natural materials. Jeffrey is committed to the design process from conception to fruition, and takes the time to be onsite for the tweaks that bring a project to life. ”
