Walnut Creek Landscape & Design: Create Outdoor Retreats for Every Occasion

Our goal here at Garden Crafters Landscape and Design is to create one-of-a-kind outdoor retreats that work with the surrounding environment, existing architectural design and the lifestyle of the homeowners and occupants. Whether you are looking forward to building a backyard and patio space ready for serious entertaining or you prefer a retreat-style oasis that will serve as an outdoor sanctuary, we will combine both landscape and hardscape elements to bring those goals to fruition.

The following is an example of the services we provide to our Walnut Creek and East Bay clientele:

  • Long-view landscaping plans. Landscapes are, literally, living artistic canvases. It’s important that the landscape plan you create now can be added to and amended season by season – and year by year – as your vision and lifestyle evolve. At Garden Crafters, we make sure to take your long-term plans into consideration, so we can create a holistic landscape plan that works for the present and will also thrive in the future.
  • Eco-conscious landscaping details. Whether you are interested in Xeriscaping, which places water conservation at the forefront of the design, or desire a more formal English garden style, we implement sustainable design features, and use a combination of native and drough-tolerant plants, in order to promote a rich outdoor environment that enhances – rather than detracts – from Mother Nature’s plan.
  • Designs for outdoor living. Here in the Bay Area of California, we’re fortunate to enjoy moderate climates that allow for a nearly-year-round outdoor lifestyle. Rather than have a backyard you enjoy during summer and fall, Garden Crafters wants to know how your family or household lives so we can design and implement outdoor spaces that accommodate your lifestyle. This may include a gourmet outdoor kitchen or an elaborate play area for your children or pets. We can incorporate formal and informal seating areas and integrate additional outdoor features, like fountains, pools, fire pits and more, that make the most of your landscape.
  • Attractive erosion control. In addition to an attractive year-round climate, we’re also endowed with plenty of hilly terrain, which can make landscaping and erosion control a challenge. With the right landscape design, hardscape terraces and retaining walls, and a healthy combination of root-hardy plants, we’ll make sure your hills stay in place and look beautiful while they’re at it.
