Irrigation Systems / Landscape Design & Installations

 

When it comes to design we believe flexibility is vital. The design of your landscape can be using either our or your Landscape Architect or Designer / Planner.  We work directly with several well-known Architects, Designers and Arborists. Our goal throughout this process is working together as a team to ensure the installation meets or exceeds the envisioned design.

 

We also provide complete irrigation system designs and installation for any property – whether a residence or large commercial property.  We strive to provide the most efficient and water conserving systems utilizing the latest in irrigation technology including weather monitoring and remote/wireless access controllers.

 

 

 

Conservation

 

Drought Tolerant / Grey Water Systems / Natives / Sod Roofs / Xeriscapes

 

With the ever present and growing need to conserve water in Santa Cruz County and with our region's Mediterranean climate, we believe it is good stewardship to work with Mother Nature and utilize plants and trees that are native to our area or many micro-climates.

 

Native and drought tolerant plants and trees are better suited to live and thrive in our local (micro) climate conditions and are more resistant to stress, disease and/or insects and pests. So we purchase our plants and trees from local nurseries that specialize in drought tolerant and local natives - whether California Coastal or more arid zones of our area. Xeriscapes are also an excellent and attractive alternative to reduce or minimize a property’s landscape water requirements.

 

We also can special order sod roofs (these take about 2+ months to grow) to conserve energy and provide an even more natural look and feel for your property. Conserving water is simply a must for our area, so installing drip irrigation systems, reducing non native grass yards, and installing Grey Water systems (with Country approval) are becoming more and more viable options in our area to reduce one’s local water consumption and also save money over time.

 

 

 

Hardscapes

 

Arbors & Trellises / Decking / Fences / Pathways / Patios

 

We can design and install your property’s landscape with areas for entertaining, privacy, landscape features and/or access.  Whether you desire a new deck, or paver driveway, need to repair an existing fence, or install a new one, want a gazebo and/or other feature for enjoying California outdoors, we can assist you with these specific property improvements.

 

 

Landscape Lighting

 

Accent / Pathways / Property Features / Seasonal/Holidays / Trees

 

A great way to dramatically improve your property’s curb appeal, security, safety and/or to simply stand out for special occassions- is by installing low voltage landscape lighting.  We recommend the use of LED lights, which are ecologically friendly and energy saving (up to 85% less energy use than traditional lighting!)

 

We design and install lighting for a variety of landscaping needs and requirements…whether year round or for seasonal/holiday and/or special events.  Just let us know what you want and we can do it!

 

 

Property Maintenance

 

Interiors & Exteriors / Primary & Secondary Residences

 

Because we are regularly onsite maintaining your property’s landscaping, our team often notices issues that typically can arise when an owner is away for a few days or for an extended period of time.  Whether overflowing mail and/or newspapers, a water leak or break, an electrical issue arises and/or something that appears amiss, etc., we are often the initial ears and eyes to your property when you are away. This can include preventing or minimizing major damages such as an interior water leak from occurring to your property.

 

As a licensed, bonded and insured landscape contractor, we have the ability to ensure your property always is well looked after from a maintenance standpoint.  Our team is well entrusted to some of the finest properties in our area to ensure these properties are well maintained- providing the owners an additional level of comfort and security when they are away.

 

 

 

Specialty Landscapes

 

Gardens / Estates / Lawns / Ranches

 

We work on a number of unique properties that require specialized services.  The value of the existing landscaping is significant and special care and attention to details is a must. Other properties are large in scale with acreage requiring weekly and sometimes daily landscaping maintenance.  No property is too large for us to handle – whether a large business park of many acres to a large ranch or preserve – we can provide the necessary landscaping maintenance to the owner’s specifications.

 

 

Waterscapes

 

Ponds / Fountains & Waterfalls / Ornamental Water Features

 

We can design and install just about any waterscape – from ponds to water falls to ornamental water features.  We also provide maintenance to these waterscapes, ensuring they function properly and their inhabitants have a healthy and safe living environment.  We believe waterscapes provide a more natural look and feel to any landscape and also provide a natural sound that is very pleasing to the senses.
