Choosing the best landscape design company in Sacramento, Bay Area, and Los Angeles, CA is a critical factor in the overall success of your project.
Because depending on the size and scope of your project, the landscape design may ultimately become the “master plan.” This is essentially the blueprint from which your project will be built. The design will not only help you visualize your project—and ensure that everyone is on the same page—but it will also become guidelines for your landscape to take shape.
You wouldn’t build a home without blueprints and you shouldn’t undergo a landscape renovation without a design.
The Landscape Design Process
The process begins with a consultation with one of our talented landscape designers. A minimal consultation fee is required at this time. From there, using the latest landscape design software, your ideas and dreams will be incorporated into a design, tailored to your personal preferences. This gives you a clear idea of exactly what your finished landscape will look like and provides you with the opportunity to make changes or approve the design as is before installation ever begins.

"We hired Simple Elegance to design and create plans for our front yard. We live on a hillside, and the project was comprised of 8 retaining walls, a major staircase, new driveway and a new front entry.
Throughout the design process, Ben was very attentive to what we wanted, very mindful of our budget, and was absolutely amazing at suggesting things that would work, and those ideas that would not. We went back and forth with minor changes to the plan, which was NEVER a problem with him, he just wanted us to be happy with what we were designing. His knowledge is impressive and he is more then willing to share it with you, almost always at a benefit to the project.
The plans were very professional for all of the trades to use, and Ben was very hands on during the entire process. He was always there to answer any questions anyone had, and was onsite most days to oversee the project.
Simple Elegance not only provided plans for the hardscaping portion of the job, but the landscape design, lighting plan, drainage, and irrigation system.
We are extremely happy with the quality of work that Simple Elegance provided. It is hard to find someone that truly loves what they do, but with Ben, you get the passion from him on the fist handshake."

"Ben is a very gifted and talented designer. He is very personable, professional, creative and easy to work with. What we felt was a very difficult project he was able to simplify!
Before selecting him we visited several of his projects and we were very impressed that they all reflected their own individuality relating to the homes and environment...non "cookie cutter" designs. We spent two years looking for someone who had fresh ideas before we found Ben who was involved in a neighbor's project.
He gave us a list of landscape/hardscape contractors at our request to interview. We selected one which was an excellent choice. They executed Ben's design to perfection and worked closely to get the project completed in a timely fashion. Our was project done in the winter with minimal delays that were due to weather."

"Professional, talented, knowledgeable & personable describe Ben Dickerson and his company. He listened attentively to what we wanted and then thoughtfully put together a plan that incorporated his design experience with our wish list. He did not try to force his own ideas and respectfully addressed any differences. I have already referred him to my neighbor who is also equally impressed.Ben designed a 20' x 30' outdoor living area with covered patio in our backyard. It includes a fireplace, a BBQ and bar area. Additionally he provided complete new landscaping with a fountain. The design seamlessly matches the Tuscan look of the front of the house which was completed 3 years earlier. What he did does not look like an "add on" but rather a start to finish overall matching plan."

Our inspiration comes from asking new clients, “What would you love to experience each morning as you look out your windows?” Some folks already know. Some express it as a feeling. Some look to me for inspiration. And that’s okay, because what I hear always sparks ideas for colors, textures, fragrances and flow that will soon become their own personal oasis. This visualization is always unique, because it’s a living reflection of you.
Do you wish to savor an outdoor space to relax and read? Cook and entertain? Revel and exercise? Raise healthy kids or play fetch with Fido? Do you hope to soak in the sun, or doze off in delightful shade? Banish bees and pollen? Be water wise? Sink your hands into dark, rich soil? Or just show-off your hands-free yard?
Now you know the big secret of my passion. We bring out your ideas and imagination – then team with you to shape it all into an affordable landscape you’ll be proud to share with family and friends (or just unwind in solitude amid nature’s peace).
That’s why we're confident in our promise to you: The garden landscape we create for you – where you’ll live your life to the fullest – will be a wholehearted reflection of you.

What do you want to experience when you open your windows each morning?
