Sustainable Landscape Design
Designing your garden can be challenging if you don’t have the big picture in mind. It’s kind of like building a house without a plan. A sustainable, well-designed landscape can save water, energy and money. More importantly, it steps just a little more lightly on our resources. Whatever your design needs are, we will make it happen in a thoughtful, efficient manner.
Drip & Low Water Irrigation
Irrigation here in Southern California is a big topic! There are efficient and economical methods of watering – and most of us don’t use them. We install high efficiency irrigation systems with weather based irrigation sensors to maximize water savings. We can also provide drawings and calculations for the new water efficient (MWELO) ordinance, ready for submittal to the city. Let us help you save water and have happy plants, too.
Decks & Pergolas
We design and build stunning decks and pergolas for you from any type of wood, steel or composite material. There are so many materials available these day: composite, hardwood, redwood, thermally treated wood, to name but a few! We can help you decide what best suits your needs and then design and build it to perfection. We are also a certified TrexPro deck builder.
Nothing adds warmth to an outdoor entertaining area like a firepit – it is literally warming on our chilly evenings and provides a hospitable glow of the flames that draws people to gather round. We design & build fire pits out of concrete, tile, stone, steel, gabion.. Freestanding or built-in, we can give you an amazing focal point for roasting marshmallows or whatever!
Let there be light! Outdoor areas are absolutely lost without the sparkle of some good lighting at night. Landscape lighting can completely change the look of your garden in the evening and create living areas that you never imagined before. We always use low voltage LED lights throughout the landscape - these are far supieror to the old school incandescent fixtures in that they use far less electricity and last so much longer. We also install LED market lights for that festive feeling.
Cash For Grass & Rebate/ Grant Programs
Thinking green as in cash not grass? A little environmentally conscious, but not averse to saving money? There are many programs out there offered by municipalities and water-power companies that encourage you to limit lawn and use waterwise irrigation products. Let us show you how to get rebate and grants that can help pay for your new garden. MWD & Santa Monica still do offer rebates!
Every oasis is improved by the splashing sound, beauty and tranquility of water. For your own garden haven, a fountain, pond or pool, trickling and flowing water can bring birds and butterflies, or just help mute the sound of the noisy neighbors or traffic. We can build you a custom water feature, or install a recirculating vessel fountain with all the bells and whistles!
Climate Appropriate & Native Plants
Our goal is to design and install the landscape you imagine – whatever your style, be it contemporary, traditional, English garden or Palm Springs, we can do it. And we can do it using a majority of drought tolerant and native plants that thrive in our climate! Who knew? And we always try to incorporate as many edible, fruit producing trees and plants, because why not grow some of your food!
Patios, Walkways, Steps & Paths
Meandering natural stone, straight lines and concrete or anything in between, we can imagine it, design it, and build it. Our accomplished team of builders are experts in all aspects of stone, brick, paver, concrete, gravel and decomposed granite installation.
Fences & Gates
Fences are often the first thing people see when they visit your home – and you are surrounded by them. These structures should suit your personal style as well as the architecture of your home. Wood, metal, rails, slats, natural, stained, painted… let us help you to create something just a notch or two up from that Home Depot picket prefab…
Transform sloped areas using concrete, metal, or stone retaining walls to create your dream outdoor area with terraces & planter beds. Expand your space just because you can! Be it board-formed concrete, block with stucco, landscape timber or steel, we are on it.
Incorporating a vegetable garden into a part of your landscape design is fun, beneficial, and beautiful too. You can ensure that the food you eat isn’t grown with harmful chemicals or pesticides. Kids love them – best way I know of to get your two-year-old to eat squash – or your 42 year old, for that matter… Grow food, not lawn!
Freestanding planters are an amazing design element. We custom fabricate planters of reclaimed wood and/or steel to use in your garden for veggies, flowers, or whatever you can think of. Structural landscape planters are the perfect hybrid between a container garden and open ground.
Problem areas in your garden? Too many slopes or not enough interesting topography in your outdoor space? An easy fix is permanent raised beds. We make them out of concrete, steel or stone and in any shape or size you want, and they can be integral to retaining wall construction or freestanding. We will design and build beautiful and unique areas for you!
