Part of being the premier landscape build and design company in Southern California is our great reputation. We only provide quality construction, professional grade materials, and an experienced and dedicated crew to get the job done right. Our value-added services include a team of industry experts, so you know you’re getting the best of the best for your custom project.
Unlike other companies, we don’t start with a low bid and then add on costs in middle of the job. You know exactly what your project will cost from the very start. No surprises mean peace of mind.
Our reputation is at stake on each and every project. Our good name is your guarantee to get your dream yard the first time without cutting corners.
When you put money into your property, you expect a return on investment. Studies show that a beautifully landscaped yard can increase your property’s value by up to 20%. Money magazine estimates that you can recover up to 120% of your project’s cost when you sell your property, making landscaping a smart investment.
Our pricing is completely transparent. You can expect to invest up to 7% of your property’s value into an all new and well-landscaped yard, but most often we can renovate the existing landscape or hardscape for a reasonable cost while still adding value to your property.
Since each project is custom designed, there’s no set cost. But you’ll know what your costs will be upfront before any work starts.
Your designer / estimator will be your point of contact from start to finish and present on-site every day to supervise the project. Our long-term employees make up an installation crew with decades of experience. They are all fully trained, knowledgeable, and respectful of your property. In addition, they are insured, and well supervised. We never sub-contract our work to others.
You’ll know up front how much time we need to complete the yard of your dreams because we know you want your project completed as quickly as possible. A simple estimate is for each $8,750 spent, it takes about five working days of installation.
Landscape design is part of your total project’s cost; it’s not additional. The design phase makes up around 3% – 7% of the total installation cost.
Unlike other companies, Design Scapes Inc can work with any budget. We’re creative, innovative, and committed to creating the best landscape possible for your budget—without cutting corners. Our commitment to excellence is budget-conscious, meaning you won’t experience surprise costs down the road.
Yes, in fact if you have budget concerns, we actually encourage you accomplish your project’s goals in stages. We believe that’s a better approach than your having to give up on what you really want. Working in phases helps you manage your vison so it fits your budget. It takes you a bit longer, but you have full control of budget and time to create the exceptional outdoor living space you want.
Design Scapes Inc has transparent pricing. We accept Visa, Master Card, Amex, Discover, cash, check, wire transfer, and Venmo payments. You’ll get a payment schedule with your project schedule. And you only pay for labor and materials delivered up to that point.
Each client gets our undivided attention, and we only work on one project at a time. This means we’re never over-scheduled or spread thin like other landscape companies in Southern California. It also means you get superior service, personalized attention, and a one-of-a-kind outdoor living space that, frankly, other companies can’t provide.
We’ll schedule your project as soon as you approve the final project plans. We usually book around three to five weeks in advance. You’ll get a detailed project and work schedule that shows deliveries and installation date and payment due dates. You’ll know exactly what to expect at each step of the project.
