Services We Offer
Pruning and Hedging
Utilizing extensive knowledge of commonly cultivated landscape plants we prune all types of shrubs, vines, and trees up to 15' tall. The goal of pruning is to develop a balanced, natural shape while maintaining the size of the plant relative to the space it inhabits. Proper pruning will also maximize fruiting, flowering or dramatic foliage effect. When it comes to hedges, we use hand shears to give crisp, clean lines to hedges or topiaries.
Horticultural and Design Consultation
Our horticulturists can help identify what your garden needs to reach its full potential. Whether it's soil testing, renovation pruning, or the selection of a new specimen tree or drought-tolerant meadow grass, we bring expert knowledge and unique design ideas when we evaluate your garden.
We are happy to meet with you or your regular garden maintenance team to develop a plan that best suits your needs. Se habla español.
Gardening in an Mediterranean climate like California, good irrigation is a must. We can help troubleshoot and repair your current system or help upgrade to a more efficient irrigation schedule and system.
When we create a design, it is a dynamic process. After we discuss your specific tastes and expectations, we perform an advanced analysis of the site and the existing features in order to create a garden that will look beautiful not only after installation, but for years into the future. Many garden designers lack the horticultural knowledge that helps us to select plants that will thrive where they are planted and not outgrow their space. We consider the seasonality of the garden and will incorporate unique elements for all seasons.
