Finding Good Landscape Contractors & Landscape Designers in the San Gabriel Valley CA 

California requires landscape contractors in the San Gabriel Valley CA to be licensed with the state, such as with the C27 license for residential and commercial landscaping which requires passing an exam.  Landscape designers in the San Gabriel Valley CA need no state license if they are doing design only and not acting as the landscape installers.

But even the state license is no guarantee that any particular landscaper in the San Gabriel Valley CA is doing business ethically, providing real value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all landscape designers and landscape companies in the San Gabriel Valley 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, verified liability and workers comp insurance for your protection, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

Landscape Companies in the San Gabriel Valley 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 will build certain features into the infrastructure of the landscape that make it easier for future care. They'll 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 will begin to sculpt the design of your choice. They can work with several themes appropriate to the San Gabriel Valley, 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 the San Gabriel Valley 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 the San Gabriel Valley 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.

Many local landscapers in the San Gabriel Valley 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 the San Gabriel Valley are also willing to perform ongoing landscape maintenance services that include garden care, lawn care, grass cutting and more.

Synthetic Grass & Artificial Lawns in the San Gabriel Valley CA
Many local landscape firms can install synthetic grass in the San Gabriel Valley, 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 the San Gabriel Valley get hot with direct exposure to the sun, so the appropriateness of synthetic lawns in the San Gabriel Valley 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 the San Gabriel Valley include Pregra Artificial Grass, SYNLawn, AstroTurf, FieldTurf, ForeverLawn, ProGreen, SmartGrass, Synthetic Turf International.

Questions To Ask Landscape Designers & Landscape Contractors 

When it comes to landscaping in the San Gabriel Valley CA, ask these questions about the abilities, experience, and credentials of the companies you're considering hiring:

• How long have they been doing landscaping in the San Gabriel Valley specifically? (Different regions have their own

unique soil conditions and weather that will effect choices to be made among plants, sprinkler system design and irrigation. Lots of experience in your location specifically shows familiarity with these aspects.)

• How many projects have they done similar to yours, in terms of size of job, residential versus commercial, drought-tolerant, etc.?

• Can the landscape company give you names and numbers of clients who had similar project to yours

who you can call as references? (All landscape companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• What is their repair or replacement policy for plants that might die after installation and for how long?

• Can the company vouch that all employees sent to your property are legal to work in the U.S.? (All landscape companies in the San Gabriel Valley bearing The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• How will they determine pricing?

• Will they show you proof of active workers' compensation and liability insurance? (All landscape 

companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Will they provide a written estimate that is detailed,

including the amount of the amount of material to be used, brand names if any, and product numbers if any? (This is key because cheap landcape companies in the San Gabriel Valley often only appear cheaper by using less material or lower quality brands).

• What are the manufacturer warranties on the material to be used?

• Do they provide a written warranty for their labor, aside from manufacturer warranties?

• Will permits be needed? If so, will the landscape contractors be responsible for getting them or do they leave that up to you?

• Do they use only their own employees, or do they hire subcontractors, and if so, what are the names of

those companies?

When you've chosen the best landscape contractors in the San Gabriel Valley for your specific needs, make sure they are properly licensed by the State of California. (All landscape contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had their license verified by research staff at The Prime Buyer's Report so you don't have to.)
