We begin by visiting your site to evaluate your landscape needs and discuss ideas that are sensitive
to your specific location.

Then, we will provide you with a written estimate specifically for your landscape design. If a landscape design is not necessary, we can help you layout your garden at your home and then provide you with a written estimate for the construction costs.

Utilizing the latest software, we create a unique, cost effective, native landscape design.


We offer the following construction services:

  • Written installation quotations
  •  Low flow, water conserving irrigation systems
  •  Solutions to drainage problems
  •  Natural rock and other retaining wall systems
  •  Flagstone, concrete and interlocking paver patio      walkways and driveways
  •  Native plantings as well as ornamental
         plant installation
  • Safe herbicide application

  •  Installation of string redwood mulch for weed
         control and water conservation
  •  Native habitat restoration (Mitigation work)
  •  Decomposed granite walkways
  •  Highest quality workmanship
  •  Raptor perches and owl boxes

    One of the advantages of considering a native garden is the maintenance costs. Our gardens require about 6 maintenance visits in the first year and 2-3 visits per year after that. In the first year maintenance is provided to monitor plants, soil conditions and to perform natural pruning and cut back of certain plants. Weeding as well as supplemental watering is included in our maintenance visits.

    In the years that follow, the native plants will stabilize themselves, leaving the maintenance visits for natural pruning, dead heading of plants and winter watering in dry years. Some of our clients have small lawn areas which require weekly care. We do offer a mowing service for the landscapes we are associated with.
    We take a natural approach to the maintenance of our gardens to insure long term health and prosperity
