Whether clients have a design in hand or are looking for advice and ideas, Jeff Smith can provide assistance. His decades of experience in San Diego county and eye for design allows him to combine the homeowners’ wishes with the requirements of the outdoor space – whether it calls for a patio roof, retaining wall or water-saving plant material – and create a landscape that will be attractive, functional and stand the test of time. Jeff’s expertise is backed up by a talented and experienced installation crew that is also able to perform demolition and site preparation, and complete a variety of softscape and hardscape installations.
Jeff focuses on large-scale projects, along with smaller, fill-in installations, primarily in the San Diego North County area. We’ve completed landscapes in Escondido, Poway, Ramona, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos, Rancho Santa Fe, San Marcos, Vista and more.
As a lifelong resident of San Diego with a horticultural background, Jeff is able to identify which plant material will thrive in particular microclimates. Jeff is also experienced in making water-wise plant selections that will add color and visual interest to landscapes without driving up the water bill.
One of Jeff’s many design specialties is converting tropical, high water-consuming landscapes to low maintenance, drought tolerant Mediterranean landscape designs. For example, we have completed landscape renovations in tract-sized yards in $15,000 to $18,000 price range, creating a low maintenance, water-friendly design, resulting in a decreased water bill and zero exterior work for the homeowner.
