Testimonials From Happy Clients:


Chris, Sacramento CA:

Jonathan has been a joy to work with. He really listened to my preferences and wishes and came up with a plan that I loved, then implemented it on time and on budget.

Julie and Matt, Sacramento CA:

The completed front yard is stunning and a complete transformation and it's not even grown in yet. Now it's a pleasure to come home just to see the yard as I pull up. We gets compliments literally every single day and several of my neighbors have decided to hire Jonathon after watching him work.

Michael and Jeanie, Sacramento CA:

We knew we wanted to make some changes and had a few rough ideas of what we wanted. Jonathan looked at our yard, inspecting where there was shade and/or sun, and came up with an amazing design. We usually drag our feet a little bit on big decisions, but the design was so enticing and the timing was right, that we pushed forward.  Definitely recommend Jonathan for anyone considering a landscaping project.

Jonathan designed a beautiful outdoor retreat for us, which far exceeded our expectations, and turned our backyard into a beautiful oasis where we want to spend our time now. We highly recommend him!

Fosters, Antelope CA:

I hired Jonathan to provide plans for a front and back yard re-do. He is on time for appointments and discusses our concerns and his ideas before drafting plans.

Danielle and Theron, Pleasant Hill, CA
"We were extremely pleased to work with Jonathan on designing our front and back yards and a drainage system for our large lot. He was very personable, which made us comfortable with the large undertaking. He was very concerned with finding eco-friendly and green options for our project which would be not only beautiful but also environmentally responsible and sustainable. We found him friendly, knowledgeable, and hard-working, and are very happy to work with him again and to recommend him to others."

Richard and Carla, Danville CA:
"Over the last 2 years, we have completely remodeled our back and front yard living spaces and gardens. Jonathan led the entire project... from design development to all phases of execution such as demo, building, and gardening. We particularly appreciated the attention to detail and the willingness to go through numerous iterations of designs. We are very pleased with the results and we receive lots of compliments from friends and neighbors"

Layne and Mike, Walnut Creek CA:

"Jonathan was very flexible in working through the design with us. He patiently shepherded us through the process of selecting products and materials, even accompanying us to the stone yard several times to help us finalize our choices. Jonathan really listened to what it was we wanted and was creative in incorporating these elements into the design. Apart from his talent in conceptual design, he was a real hands-on designer.  We have received many compliments from neighbors and passersby about our new landscape, and are really enjoying spending time in our new outdoor spaces!"


Jeanette, Moraga CA:

"Jonathon is amazing. He envisioned a steep barren hillside as a beautiful landscape with varying shades of green and delightful bits of soft color. My husband and I had several companies out to look at our hillside, but none of them had the confidence or ability to convince us how lovely this hill could be.  It is so beautiful to see the plants fill in and it has been a joy to look at. We have the feeling that he really wants us to love the plants for years to come and to be successful in maintaining our hill! He's a great inspiration and a patient teacher!"

Elsa, Walnut Creek CA:

"Jonathan’s background in art + landscape architecture + plant maintenance + love of gardening + affiliation with a full service installation company = great combination. Jonathan’s design, ultimately implemented by the Calvin Craig crew, transformed our home’s appearance. Neighbors and friends consistently mention how the new landscaping fits and enhances the architecture of the house. Note: Jonathan gave excellent advice at our first meeting -- equal to or better than a SF-based landscape architect whose design quote was more than 2x the price."

Claudia and David, Orinda, CA:
"Jonathan listened well and came up with the perfect design for us the first time.  I would definitely use Jonathan on any future landscape design project."

Pauline, Walnut Creek, CA:
"From the very beginning, Jonathan was extremely patient and offered us several different design and cost options. He sat with us each time and listened to our constantly changing ideas with patience and professionalism.  Jonathan understood our needs and somehow improved on them with his designs. In the end, our yard is exactly what we wanted and more. Would highly recommend Jonathan."

RJ, Walnut Creek, CA:

"I hired Jonathan to create a landscape design. I am so glad I did! He was a wealth of information, and had so many great ideas. I had given him a challenge since I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, only that I wanted a yard that felt inviting. He and I looked at landscape books so he was certain of what “feeling” I was trying to create in our backyard. I am so pleased with the outcome. The plants that Jonathan chose were perfect! I now have beautiful color, lots of beneficial insects, and hummingbirds. I call it my “Zen” space and thanks to Jonathan, I now enjoy my backyard."

Alexis, Orinda, CA:
"One of the many qualities we appreciate about Jonathan is that he really listens to us and incorporates our ideas and budget into his designs and has created spaces that are more spectacular than we could imagine ourselves. He is flexible with changes and very, very responsive and easy to work with."


Jim & Sandy, Lafayette CA:

"We were very pleased with Jonathans work. He is always pleasant and has answered all our questions and addressed our concerns.  Jonathans design was everything we expected.  Deadlines were met and the project remained within our budget.  Since the job has been completed we have called Jonathan several times with minor questions and he is always available to come by with advice."

Ursula, Lafayette CA:
"Jonathan is a font of ideas. He gave me numerous options for hardscape as well as native plants trees and a deck. He gave me choices and options together with price estimates all along as the landscaping took shape. The project could not have turned out better.I am thrilled with the results."


David and Jing, Pleasant HIll:
Jonathan did a great job with the design, and was able to come up with some creative ideas that fit into our limited budget. We are very pleased with the results. Our new garden is beautifuI! I would (and have!) recommend Jonathan for any landscape design project."

Catherine and Dave, Walnut Creek, CA:

"Jonathan did a great landscape re-design for us. Working around the hard-scape that existed and incorporating our ideas along with his expertise and knowledge, he created a plan that was sensible, practical, and beautiful. The plan included several native and drought resistant plants in a challenging shaded yard. We are really happy with the results"
