Building Your Dream Landscape
The first step in building your dream landscape is coming up with a list of the features you would like to include and all of your other landscaping ideas and inspiration. The next step is determining your budget so that you can figure out how many of those features and ideas you can include. At this stage, it is a good idea to start working with a professional landscape designer. Your designer will help you make the most of your budget and the space available and will help make sure your project is a success.
They will also help you address other considerations, such as the need for erosion control or retaining walls, which type of outdoor lighting will serve you best, any safety or infrastructure issues that should be considered, and how to make sure your landscaping complements the architectural style of your home.

Why Should I Hire a Campbell-Based Landscape Designer?
Using local contractors is good for the local economy, but it also comes with the benefits of working with Campbell landscape designers and installers who know the features and materials that work best here, know local regulations and the process to obtain permits here, and can help your job stay on time and within budget because of their local knowledge.
Local contractors and designers are familiar with the area’s microclimate, whether that includes sandy soil, wind, fog, and salt spray in coastal communities or the dry, hot conditions in desert cities. Work with Campbell landscape companies that have experience with the specific microclimate in this area.
Hillside and canyon experience
If your property has uneven terrain, it is important to work with a local landscape designer who can help you address the issues that can come with that. For example, if you have neighboring houses that sit higher than yours, there may be privacy issues that can be addressed with landscaping. You may also need landscaping that is designed with erosion control in mind. We have experience working with varied terrain and can assist you with this.
Access to local resources
Another benefit of working with a local landscape designer is that they will know and have experience with other Campbell contractors and vendors, as well as the local permitting process and building regulations.
Does Sequoia Outdoor Landscape with Plants, Succulents, or Gravel?
Yes, the designers and installers at Sequoia Outdoor have years of experience working with native plants, succulents, tropical plants, gravel, and other grass alternatives and low-water hardscapes.
What Landscape Design Styles Are Common in Campbell?
The South Bay city of Campbell is a largely residential suburb where professionals, couples, and families enjoy active lifestyles and have busy schedules. Homeowners here tend to prefer a balance of eco-friendly landscaping and outdoor living areas that work well for their lifestyles. This includes outdoor kitchens for grilling with family and friends on the weekend, low-water grass alternatives instead of conventional lawns, comfortable entertaining spaces, patio fireplaces and fire pits to gather around with friends, paver walkways and patios, and outdoor lighting that increases safety and illuminates landscaping features.
Does Sequoia Outdoor Design for Earthquakes, Wildfires, or Mudslides?
We do! We all live and work in California, which means we understand the importance of designing landscapes for the natural disasters we experience here. Our team has years of experience designing and installing landscapes that are attractive, inviting, functional, and designed with risk reduction in mind. Examples of this would include recommending fire-resistant plants and hardscape materials that can help create a defensible space around your home, designing retaining walls and other erosion control features to reduce the risk of mudslides, and installing pavers for driveways and patios to make it easier to fix your hardscapes after an earthquake.

FAQ for Landscaping Services
How much does it cost to consult a landscape architect?
Landscape architects and designers who charge by the hour often charge between $30 and $80 per hour. Some will charge a flat rate instead.
Sequoia Outdoor landscape designers offer a one-hour, on-site consultation free of charge.
What is the difference between a landscaper and a landscape designer?
A landscape designer will work with you to create and execute an overall plan for your landscaping project. Whether it is for a small part of your yard or the whole property, they will work with you to balance your list of features with your budget, timeline, and the space available. They will point out any infrastructure or safety issues that need to be addressed and discuss your options for different materials you might use, such as paving stones for driveways and patios or synthetic turf or other grass alternatives for lawn areas. Once they have a good grasp on what you are looking for, they will create a design, give you a 3D rendering to review, address your questions, and manage the installation process.
A landscaper is someone who works for or owns a landscape maintenance company. These folks sometimes offer basic tree trimming services or construction services, such as installing an irrigation system, walkways, or sod, but they most often come in after the installation process is complete to provide maintenance services. The types of landscape maintenance services they usually provide include lawn care, mowing, weeding, blowing leaves, and checking and repairing irrigation systems.
How much do landscapers charge per hour in Campbell?
Campbell landscape maintenance companies generally charge somewhere between $25 and $50 per person per hour.
How much should I budget for a landscape project?
Landscape project costs vary depending on material choice, size of the project, the landscaping company you choose, and where your home is located. A smaller project might cost as little as $2,000, while a larger, more complex landscaping project could cost more than $50,000. If you are installing new landscaping, a general rule of thumb is to budget about 10% of the value of your home for your landscape design and installation.
