Paths & Walkways

Exploring your property shouldn’t be dangerous or unpleasant. Unpaved paths can quickly become uneven or overgrow, creating potential hazards and looking unkempt. Add a sense of elegance and sophistication to your landscaping project with paths and walkways. Enjoy a safe and stable surface for walking, and enhance the visual appeal of your outdoor space. It's not just about functionality, it's about creating an atmosphere that evokes peace and tranquillity.

Steps & Stairways

Steep hills or deteriorating stairways can make your terrain difficult to traverse, not to mention a safety hazard. Install a beautifully crafted outdoor stairway in your yard to make areas more accessible and enhance the overall aesthetic of your landscaping. Picture yourself walking down a set of sleek steps, surrounded by lush greenery and the sounds of nature. A custom stairway will allow you to fully enjoy every inch of your outdoor oasis without any worries about safety or accessibility.

Well Built Fencing

Is your open yard preventing your outdoor space from truly feeling your own? A fenceless yard, or one with deteriorating posts lacks privacy and security. Transform your yard into a private sanctuary that brings you peace and joy every time you step outside. Give yourself the satisfaction of having sturdy and attractive fencing that enhances the beauty of your property and provides a sense of security and privacy.

Peace in Privacy

Drainage

Do you struggle with preventing your outdoor space from becoming waterlogged? Protect your property with proper water drainage. Give yourself the relief that comes with knowing that your plants and flowers are getting the right amount of water without drowning in excess. Not only will proper drainage save you money on potential plant replacements, but it will also prevent any pesky mosquitoes from breeding in stagnant puddles. Take control of your yard and give it the care it deserves with a reliable drainage system.

Firescaping

Take control of potentially dangerous situations and protect what matters most. Firescaping isn't only about protection — it's about creating a beautiful and sustainable landscape that adds value to your home. Picture a lush garden surrounding your home, filled with fire-resistant plants that act as a natural barrier against flames. Give yourself the peace of mind that comes with knowing your property is prepared for any potential wildfire threat.

Professional, friendly, and skilled service. Joinery work was excellent and all snags that were brought to their attention were fixed straight away with no issues. Definitely recommend.

The Landscape Company came to our rescue! Phil and the crew found a way to build an enormous gate in our backyard. They had clear communication throughout the entire project, and are very professional people. Everyone was on time, cheerful, and cared for our project. These people are into doing the job right, with no shortcuts on quality or craftsmanship. What more can we say? If you have a project that you want to be done right, call The Landscape Company.

Phil and his team did an amazing job on my front yard remodel. His team was a pleasure to work with, very tidy, and friendly. They executed perfectly on our vision! I would highly recommend the Landscape Company.

This is a company that thrives on professionalism, attention to detail, and connecting to its customers. I love the fact that the business owner works directly with his clients. Not only did I receive outstanding customer service, but I also got direct calls from the owner to check on how my services were going. Now if that's not customer service, I don't know what else is!

I highly recommend The Landscape Company for your landscaping needs!

Phil, Laura, and the team at The Landscape Company are amazing! We have been working with them on landscaping a large hill in our backyard. They recommended prepping it for winter rains by installing a waddle system and laying down erosion control netting and straw. They noticed a storm system was arriving early so they prioritized the work and got everything installed before the rain arrived. Can't thank them enough!

I had a leak in an old irrigation system and a plumber told me they would need to dig up my yard and walkways. I was panicked and had no idea where to go for a solution. I cold-called 3 different companies and The Landscape Company was the only one that called me back on a timely basis. They came out early the next morning, and, despite my old system being a unicorn, fixed the leak promptly and gave me an idea of how my system could work. I continue to be so grateful for their prompt, professional, creative help.

Paul, Efrain and Thomas were great partners for a new homeowner! They helped us understand what we needed and were very transparent about process, materials and costs associated. We had them come in for a full day to get everything back into shape and I couldn't be happy with how everything turned out. Looking forward to having them come by on a bi-weekly basis to keep things looking manicured and (more importantly) healthy.

This is a company that strives on professionalism, attention to detail, and connecting to their customers. Phil takes pride in giving his customers the small mom and pop business feel , but has the team and business knowledge to support a large business operation. I love the fact that the business owner works directly with his clients. He provides custom packages for each of his clients if needed. His team is really friendly, trustworthy, and always arrives on time! Phil has a kind heart. He is a really great guy who cares about his customers. I honestly do not like being one in a million of customers in the corporate world. You feel like you are lost in the shuffle of things. I never felt this way when working with this company. Not only did I receive outstanding customer service, I got direct calls from the owner to check on how my services were going. now if that's not customer service I don't know what else is! I highly recommend The Landscape Company for your landscaping needs!

With great enthusiasm I applaud the work product created by The Landscape Company, thanks to its owner, Phil Dundas, and his competent crew. My Santa Cruz Gardens front yard was transformed from 1,200 square feet of lifeless turf to a spectacular display of drought resistant plants, providing a variety of texture and color and accented with three new trees. The backyard was renovated with drought tolerant red fescue and perimeter plants as well as mulch. The experienced crew pruned existing fruit trees, created a flagstone pathway, restored a cracked sidewalk, installed a drip irrigation system, reinforced a retaining wall, and corrected an eroded sided yard with a French drain and river rock. I recommend The Landscape Company because of the owner’s prompt response, accurate estimates, flexibility with plant selection and budget, sense of aesthetics, knowledge, practical considerations, and relationship with the landscape community.
