Our innovative and visually striking outdoor living spaces represent a bold unification of form, function, and sustainability. Our waterwise design expertise and customized California Friendly and drought-tolerant plant palettes set us apart. We hand-pick the highest quality plant material from the best sources, painting trees, perennial shrubs, ornamental grasses, and drought tolerant groundcovers on your blank garden canvas to create your dream outdoor space at a considerable value.
Outstanding Client Care
We believe that outstanding client care is essential throughout the design and implementation process. From concept to completion, we will guide you through each project phase to ensure that your landscape transformation experience is as stress-free and rewarding as possible. Besides offering landscape and garden design services, we facilitate the implementation of the project to ensure that the designer's vision is realized and that you are impressed with the outcome. Whether you're looking to refurbish and improve your existing landscape, or start all over from scratch, we strive to transform your outdoor space into one that exceeds your investment expectations.
We take pride in producing distinct sustainable and environmentally conscious landscapes that maximize irrigation efficiency, capture stormwater, sequester carbon, improve urban ecology, and require minimal maintenance, where possible. In many of our eco-friendly outdoor living spaces we integrate featured plant material, such as colorful and pollinator-friendly flowering perennials that attract and nourish bees and butterflies; multi-season ornamental grasses that supply food and seed for birds; and California native plants that provide valuable urban habitat for local wildlife and conserve environmental resources.
Once your outdoor space is completed, we want to ensure that it will be admired and appreciated for years to come. Although our drought-tolerant landscapes are generally low-maintenance, your designer will arrange for periodic visits to professionally evaluate your evolving landscape and check the irrigation, monitor the development of the plants, and complete any necessary modifications and improvements your garden needs as it continues to grow and mature. InSite Landscape Design works with teams of highly skilled maintenance professionals who are knowledgeable of the specific plants in your garden and the limited care they require to thrive.
