2018 CLCA Award Winner

We were fortunate enough to win another award this year at the regional CLCA (California Landscape Contractor’s Association) Achievement Awards. This project in Petaluma won first place in the one of the design-build categories.

The installation features new landscaping for front and back yards for this new home on the East side of town.

2016 CLCA Award Winners

We won two awards at this year’s CLCA North Coast Chapter Award Program. The first project was a completed front and back yard installation in Petaluma. The second was a rustic front and back yard in Cotati. Both projects shared some interesting elements, including new fencing, water features, and vegetable garden areas. See some current photos below of both projects.

2015 CLCA Award Winner- Sonoma Design-Build Project

Our design-build installation in Sonoma won first place at this year’s CLCA North Coast Chapter Awards. The design-build categories are always filled with tough competition, so a first place award is always satisfying. Thanks to the Farmers in Sonoma for the recent photos below. You can see post install photos of the project here.

Congratulations to you for the great design and for Ruben and the crew executing it so flawlessly.  We could not be happier with how the yard (front and back) turned out especially now with all the plants filling out. We are thoroughly enjoying the backyard!! – Lorelei and Larry Farmer, Sonoma

2009 CLCA Design-Build Award Winner

For the sixth year running we won an award for this year’s 2009 North Coast Chapter California Landscape Contractors Association awards. The awards are a yearly competition of landscape projects in the North Bay in a variety of installation categories. Against some stiff competition, our submission for an outdoor entertaining space in Napa won first place.

The project included a custom Rumford fireplace, Viking gas grill, refrigerator, ice maker and sink cabinet. These elements were integrated into the rear pool area with a beautiful custom concrete tile patio material by Tile and Stone in San Rafael that was installed over new concrete sub-slab. The project was tied together by some amazing custom woodwork done by Wil Matthews at Woodcraft Marin.

Special thanks to the suppliers, sub-contractors, Linda Applewhite & Associates for her great design vision, and of course our client who was a pleasure to work with.
