Outdoor Living Spaces

San Diego Landscape Design

Your house is a special place.  It provides you with shelter and warmth, privacy and pride.  It reflects your tastes, your values, and your hard work to get where you are in your life.  Whatever its size and wherever its location, your house truly is your castle.

Your home, however, doesn’t have to end at the walls of your house.  Indeed, the area surrounding your house can be as much a part of your home as your kitchen, your bedroom, and your living room.  With the proper touches, your front yard, backyard, and garden can become actual living spaces, as integral to your everyday life as any other part of your home.

Think about the priceless memories you create in your house.  Now imagine combining those special moments with the magic of a stunning outdoor space where you can indulge in the beauty of nature and San Diego’s wonderful climate.  The awe-inspiring sunsets, the sounds of native wildlife, the intoxicating charm of a landscape custom-designed to express your unique vision – you might find yourself spending more time outdoors than inside your house.

As the leaders in San Diego landscape design, the specialists of North County Landscape can transform your lawn and other outdoor spaces into just such an exquisite extension of your home.  If you need just a few subtle changes to achieve the outdoor living space of your dreams, we will happily accommodate your wishes.  However, if you want something different – something grander or more elegant or more exotic – we can give you that, too.  If you aren’t sure exactly what you want, our landscape specialists will act as advisers, evaluating your yard or garden and guiding you toward an outdoor living space that will bring you true pleasure and satisfaction.  Our specialty is transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Below you will find some examples of what we can do to make your outdoor living space truly special, but there is no job too small or too big for our landscape architects.  Whatever your landscaping needs or goals, we invite you to contact North County Landscape today to find out more about how we can serve you.  We proudly design beautiful landscapes for homes throughout San Diego, including Carlsbad, Poway, Del Mar, San Marcos, La Jolla, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Santa Fe, Rancho Penasquitos, Encinitas, and Carmel Valley.

Thematic Unity – The Secret to a Great Landscape

Have you ever driven past a house that was surrounded by landscape elements that were individually impressive, but didn’t quite gel when put together?  This hodge-podge approach to landscaping can make a yard look disorganized and even messy.  The result actually detracts from the beauty of the property.

A true landscape specialist is an artist, an engineer, a handyman, and an expert in earth sciences in more or less equal measure.  Ideally, each of these skills combine into the creation of a design that ties all of the elements together into a coherent theme.  The theme does not have to be complex or flamboyant.  It can be centered on something as simple as a single adjective: woodsy, grassy, tropical, warm, serene, playful, symmetrical.  As long as there is a logical flow among elements, and these elements complement and interact with each other in an aesthetically pleasing way, the landscape will enhance the natural beauty of the property.

If you have a theme in mind for your yard, garden, or other outdoor space, we can translate it into a stunning reality.  If you have no idea what you want to achieve specifically, only that you want it to look wonderful, our landscape specialists can accompany you to a nursery and help you figure out the right direction for you.  In either event, we will provide you with a free, hand-drawn design plan to scale.  At North County Landscape, we are renowned for our thoughtful, beautifully crafted designs that give our clients a true idea of the results they can expect.  All the while, you will benefit from our patient guidance and pleasant, friendly demeanor.  It is our honor to work with you, and our interactions with you will prove that fact!

Dry Stream Beds

Although we specialize in a number of landscaping services, our signature landscape specialty is dry stream beds.  Our dry stream beds look entirely natural and are meticulously designed to appear as though they are flowing gracefully.  Our San Diego landscape design specialists use three different sizes of smooth river rocks, all blended into a truly eye-catching design.
