Design.

Each project is uniquely designed to meet the client’s wish list to create something beautiful and classic.  You will receive a set of plans for full installation.  You can choose to implement the design yourself, or give us the opportunity to install the project for you.

Build.

Aesthetics and craftsmanship are highly valued by our team.  Our company is led by two trained designers who work to ensure that every strep, from bid preparation through installation, are addressed.  Each project is completed with integrity.

Our Design Process.

CONCEPTUAL PLAN

The first phase of the design process is creating a conceptual plan to creatively bring together space usage, planting areas and focal points.  Here we make important decisions effecting the overall flow of the space.

Starting at $450

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS

Successful implementation of a design is found in the details.  The next phase of the design process is creating construction documents based on your conceptual plan.  These include hardscape layout, dimension, planting, irrigation, and lighting design.

Starting at $600

*Design is billed out at $75/hour

Our Installation Process.

  • Bid

  • Schedule

  • Pre-construction walk-through

  • Installation

  • Enjoy

Each client is presented with a detailed bid.  Once an estimate is accepted your project is put on the calendar for installation.  Before installation begins we conduct a pre-construction walk-through.  During the installation phase we are hands-on the entire process with continual site visits.  If you choose to have our firm take control of the entire landscape remodel we will coordinate all aspects of the project, from concrete installation, to shade structure construction.  We desire that every project flow seamlessly and efficiently.

Our Staff.

  • Devon Brown
    Devon Brown

    Devon Brown took an interest in contemporary design styles and native plant pallets while attending Cal Poly’s landscape architecture program. After studying abroad in Italy she began incorporating Mediterranean design styles into her projects. When moving back to the valley these ideals were easily incorporated in drought-tolerant landscape designs. She enjoys creating beautiful landscapes that are a reflection of the architecture and interior design of her client’s homes.
