High End Homeowners with a desire for a beautiful landscape.

About My Business:


I am a licensed Landscape Contractor and Landscape Designer in the State of California. My major at Cal Poly Pomona was Ornamental Horticulture and I have worked in this industry for over 30 years. I am now providing High-End Homeowners with landscape consultation, design and construction management services. I have yet to meet a homeowner who is happy with their 'gardeners'. Despite changing gardeners frequently- they still cannot achieve the "Ritz Carlton' landscape of their dreams. That's where I come in. I provide clients with a written program for the care of their landscape- customized to their property. I assess the capabilities of their current gardeners and make recommendations to the homeowner as to whether the service they are working with has the potential to do what is needed. I then, work with their gardeners ( I am fluent in Spanish) to insure that they understand and perform to the exact specifications of the project. This alone will provide an immediate improvement in the appearance of the property. The next step is to evaluate the design of the landscape. Most homeowners want lush 'estate' gardens but are perplexed when confronted with the task of choosing the plants, flowers and accessories to bring their landscape to the next level. Thirty years in the landscape trade have given me an extensive catalog of specialty growers, container suppliers and other resources that the average homeowner has no access to. There IS a huge world beyond Home Depot! All landscape upgrades and seasonal color selections are designed by me. I also determine if special services such as tree trimming, landscape pest and disease control, turf renovation are needed. I then bid this new design work/special services out to the extensive list of landscape professionals that I work with. I will personally supervise the work to insure that the customer receives the results that they are expecting. As the principal owner in one of Southern California's largest and most respected landscape maintenance and construction companies for over 30 years, I was hired to consult on projects throughout the world and was honored with several awards for my design work. Closer to home, my daily work included some of the most prestigious commercial landscape projects in Southern California. My most satisfying projects however, were the design and construction work that I did with homeowners. Interacting with homeowners allows for level of creativity in design that isn't found in most commercial office projects. I am excited about the new direction I am taking and I know that I am filling a gap that exists in the residential landscape industry.
