Many of our clients have requested a color plant palette for their San Diego gardens that actually reflect the change in seasons. Having beautiful fall color isn't only available for the East Coast. Even with our milder climate, there are many options for seeing the seasons change in your own landscape with brilliant color in the glowing shades autumn. Here are is a suggestion that can bring brilliant fall color into your garden:
Koelreuteria paniculata The Goldenrain tree can take cold, heat, drought and wind. This hardy deciduous tree shows seasonal color- new leaves are purplish maturing to bright green. The showy flower clusters in the summer are yellow and it has gorgeous papery salmon-colored seed pods in the fall.

Before starting service, each homeowner has a walk-thru of their property with one of our experienced managers. Managing a landscape takes knowledge, time and skill. We will immediately give you an estimate of the number of hours per week we would need to provide you with the services that you require and an estimate of monthly cost. For every new client, we perform a water-audit when entering a contract. Each contract is a written agreement that clearly defines the services and materials to be supplied and the costs.
We also offer a wide range of additional services like planting seasonal color or creating something special for an upcoming outdoor party. Any additional services, outside the scope of the initial maintenance contract require written client approval prior to starting.
Let us bring your garden up to its full potential.

Our primary focus has been the residential landscape market. We have been designing, building and maintaining San Diego landscapes since 1983 . Every job that we complete isn't necessarily from the ground up. We have worked on re-imagining and renovating existing landscapes. An example of that is a project that we worked on in Rancho Santa Fe's 'The Bridges' community. The owner wanted a more formal feeling to the entry of his home and drive. We removed the original stacked boulders that created the raised planters and built stone walls instead. This formalized the entry by bringing the stone of the homes architecture out into the garden. They also helped with controlling erosion and disguising utility boxes as well.
Stay tuned for other before and afters from this project and others.
