Montecito Landscape
Santa Barbara, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJune 1, 2016
We hired Montecito Landscape for 2 projects. First, they redid our side street from driveway to corner to a more drought tolerant landscape design with fruit trees and mulch. It looks clean and neat, and is much easier to maintain. They did a lovely job, were professional, on time, and we received many compliments from neighbours who loved the new look! The second was to redo the front of our home by eliminating our massive front lawn and redoing a drought tolerant, easy to maintain landscape with vibrant flowering plants for curb appeal. The new look is terrific and plants are well established and alive-almost a year later, despite the water shortage issues in SB County. Our yard looks lovely. We would definitely recommend Montecito Landscape to other consumers.
Family Tree & Garden
Santa Barbara, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 14, 2019
I am so pleased with the landscaping work that Family Tree and Garden has performed in both my front and backyards. The transformation is amazing. Lawns and junipers were pulled out in both areas and new, beautiful drought resistant plants and bushes were planted and are doing superbly. A well thought out plan was drawn and the placement of the plants was aesthetically stunning. A new drip system was installed, a redwood container garden was built, a gazebo was installed, stepping stones were placed perfectly, a water feature was installed, baskets were placed around plants to guard against gophers, bricks were installed around plants in the driveway area to prevent bark run off, and boulders were used to give the gardens an attractive look. All work was completed on time, invoices were prepared in a timely manner, and the estimated costs were adhered to with no hidden charges or fees. I had many estimates and plans discussed with other companies but none came close to the quality of Family Tree and Garden. The types of plants used are interesting and hardy and we always get compliments from many people who walk by our house. I'd recommend this company highly!
Scarlett's Landscape, Inc.

We used Scarlett's Landscaping in 2012 to give us ideas on resolving a difficult drainage problem as well as an Ocean Friendly landscape for a cute, 100 year old rental home that we were remodeling. We received a great written design/plan that met our goals of minimal water use and low maintenance, good drainage with pleasant, usable outdoor spaces. The plan was exactly what we wanted. We decided to complete the hardscape, drainage and some plantings at that time and to add additional plants over time to spread the cost. We were delighted with the results in 2012 and now, 2 1/2 years later we could not be happier. Following the plans, we have added some plants and a bit more mulch, but the basic plan and work have held up perfectly. We'll use Scarletts again as needed in the future.

Since I build custom homes in the Los Gatos-Saratoga area I expect my own home to reflect a certain degree of style and quality. Jarrod's talents for creating an edgy and attractive garden communicates that very nicely. The low water plants chosen convey beauty and interest through their complementing and contrasting shapes and colors. Jarrod and his people were on time and professional as promised.

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 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.

I highly recommend PLdesigns. I almost didn’t hire a landcape architect for my project and I am so glad I did. Patrick totally got my taste - clean and modern, not too ornate - and I love how he transformed my entryway. I get so many compliments on my new hardscape and landscaping, especially the lighting which looks so beautiful at night.
Green Goddess Gardens, Inc.
Santa Barbara, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 28, 2015
Jessica and her crew are exceptional! Green Goddess Gardens has developed my garden over a 15 year period. Jessie was ahead of her time in directing me to a low water, low maintenance landscape. Neighbors have told me they walk down my street just to see what is blooming in my garden. I made the initial investment in my garden and have found, over time, that the plants have flourished and I have had to spend very little on additional plant material. They are Pro's!!
Mike-o Design
Santa Barbara, 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.
Ashley Farrell Landscape Design
Santa Barbara, CA Custom Water Feature Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 4, 2015
I cannot say enough good things about Ashley Farrell Design. My husband and I live in a tiny house with a big backyard. The drought and the desire to do more living outdoors inspired us to overhaul our lawn-dominated backyard. I reached out to a local landscape designer who I saw featured in Sunset Magazine. She wouldn't talk to me for less than $50k. We learned about Ashley through a mutual friend. She was so accessible, hands-on and fair in her pricing. I provide a basic snapshot of the plants I liked - and she went to work. My best advice in working with Ashley is just trust in her vision. No computer design program can adequately convey her landscape plan. She (literally) digs in and lets the topography of the space guide her. She's there every day of the process, getting dirty with a big smile on her face - and her team is competent and considerate. Ashley is passionate about nature and the local ecosystem and incorporates those elements into design (we are now obsessed with our monarchs and milkweed). We are so thrilled with the final product that we rarely want to go indoors. Our sloped lawn has been replaced with a diversity of "al fresco rooms" - fire pit, reflection space, stone steps and terraces, orchard - and beautiful plants and trees that surprise us throughout the year with flowers and fruits. More than a year later Ashley continues to check in on our yard and offer advice - and we consider her a friend. She's gone as far as pulling off the side of the road to pull neglected weeds from our front yard (she noticed while driving by) from our front yards. She's THAT invested in her work. Snap her up while you can – Ashley’s work belongs in magazines.
Paul Hendershot Design, Inc.

My husband and I purchased a home in Ojai, a beautiful, historic property, that needed a lot of love. With the landscaping, we wanted to improve the overall feel of the place without tearing things down needlessly or adding a lot of water-sucking elements. Paul has great vision and artful ideas, is very sensitive to our budgetary issues, and while having a distinctive point of view is always flexible. He is cognizant of the terrible drought we are facing in California and presents sophisticated ideas for creating water-saving plans that can be implemented quickly or more gradually. We have worked with Paul and his amazing staff and crew for the last year and a half; they are truly incredible people and the quality of the work is absolutely impeccable. Whether you are looking to start from scratch, or organically thread new elements through an existing land/hardscape, you could not hope for a designer with better taste or more professionalism. We couldn't imagine working with anyone else.
