The Best Landscape Companies in Placer County CA Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 

The state of California requires landscape contractors in Placer County CA to be licensed by the state such as with the C27 license for landscaping specifically. Landscape designers and landscape maintenance services are not required to be licensed so long as they are not performing as landscape installers. 

But even the state license for landscape contractors is no guarantee that any particular company for landscaping in Placer County CA is doing business ethically, providing real value, and satisfying customers. Likewise, there is no legal requirement that landscaping contractors in Placer County have liability insurance which is critical to reimburse you in the event of any damage that occurs.

This makes it all the more significant that all landscape companies in Placer County CA who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified state license, liability insurance, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

Landscape Companies in Placer County CA Perform Numerous Landscaping Services
Landscape contractors, landscape designers, and landscape architects are equipped to perform a variety of techniques to convert your drab yard into your ideal outdoor environment, whether it's a small garden design or a business park. If you need a complete landscape renovation, they'll start that landscape renovation process by removing and disposing existing vegetation, pests, and weeds.

Because a beautiful garden requires thorough maintenance, landscapers can build certain features into the infrastructure of the landscape that make it easier for future care. They'll can improve the foundation and water efficiency of the yard by installing lawn irrigation and drainage systems, installing sprinkler systems, grading the plot, and laying down new sod. After the initial landscape work is completed, the best landscapers in Placer County CA will begin to sculpt the design of your choice. Some can work with many themes, creating Japanese gardens, deer resistant gardens, Feng Shui designs, xeriscapes, permaculture designs, or eco friendly landscaping designs.

Once the decorative process begins, some landscapers in Placer County CA can construct and install trellises, gazebos, or arbors to give the area some texture. They may also be able to do hardscaping like walkways and other hardscape features. When it comes time to bring your yard back to life, landscapers can plant nearly any flora you prefer, includingCalifornia  native plants and grasses, olive specimens, junipers, berry vines, or fruits and vegetables.

Good landscapers in Placer County usually supply the basics as well, like groundcover, flowerbeds, shrubs and trees. Other structural enhancements include stone hardscapes, terraces, lighting, firepits, outdoor kitchens,  and barbecues. Some landscape contractors  can also build a number of water features, including koi ponds, fountains, ponds, or waterfalls.

Landscapers even design and install systems to maintain your new water features or make your new garden design eco-friendly. Low moisture plants, drip irrigation, French drains, pond filtration systems, and water-wise irrigation systems can reduce your water bill and keep your yard looking good at the same time.


Some local landscapers in Placer County CA can arrange for future landscape maintenance services as well, with follow-up visits that include rototilling, seeding, pruning, weed control, fertilization, erosion care, and arbor care. The best landscapers are versed in all aspects of landscaping in the local climate, so you can trust in their landscape designs and expert advice for your next landscaping project.

Even if your outdoor environment has never been landscaped or the landscape design was done by another landscaping company, some local landscape contractors in Placer County are also willing to perform ongoing landscape maintenance services that include garden care, lawn care, grass cutting and more.

Synthetic Grass & Artificial Lawns in Placer County CA
Many local landscape firms can install synthetic grass in Placer County, often referred to as artificial turf, synthetic grass, artificial lawns or fake grass as an alternative to real sod. Uses for artificial grass include putting greens, bocce courts, playgrounds, sports fields, or other high traffic areas.

Artificial lawns do still require some maintenance for the removal of organic debris, but maintenance costs are often still lower for artificial grass due to the lack of weeding and mowing service needed and water conservation. Some types of synthetic grass in Placer County get hot with direct exposure to the sun, so the appropriateness of synthetic lawns in Placer County depend on the site, the intended use, and exact material the artificial grass is made from.

Ask to make sure the landscape company you choose for artificial lawn installation already has lots of experience with synthetic grass and the issues that are specific to it. Also a company that can offer more than one type of artificial lawn gives you the advantage of options for cost and the material it's made from rather than be pushed into one kind of synthetic turf simply because the company only sells or knows how to install one type of artificial grass.

Synthetic grass and artificial lawns have varied lifespans so look at the manufacturer's warranty. Most artificial turf is warranted to hold its color and integrity for six years or more.  Common brands of artificial grass in Placer County include Pregra Artificial Grass, SYNLawn, AstroTurf, FieldTurf, ForeverLawn, ProGreen, SmartGrass, Synthetic Turf International.
