Owner Jeff Smith is a San Diego native and lifelong resident with over 40 years of landscape design and installation experience. With a background in horticulture and having worked in San Diego his entire career, he is extremely very familiar with the many microclimates in San Diego County, as well as the various soil types that run through each city. This on-the-ground experience makes our company specially equipped to pinpoint which plant options will thrive in your yard. Our team visits local nurseries weekly, keeping abreast of new varieties and plant trends, and we are highly experienced in the installation of low maintenance and drought-tolerant plants.
The design and installation team at Landscape Assistance are professionals who take the utmost pride in every phase of the landscape process. Owner Jeff Smith is involved in every step of the process and personally oversees each job site, visiting the site and checking on the crew continually throughout the course of the job. He stays in contact with the homeowner to provide timely updates about the progress of the job. We make sure our clients never have to worry about overseeing small details of the job.
Our crews are diligent about ensuring the worksite is always clean and safe. We provide personalized service for each project, and once we begin a job, we have a crew dedicated to that particular job site. We work Monday through Friday, weather permitting until the job is complete. There is no stopping/restarting of work. We provide a construction/payment schedule upon the start of work, and request payments as the work is completed/materials are delivered, with no large upfront deposit. This is to ensure the client is satisfied with the progression of work and is aware of what is being done on any given day. As a result, the homeowner is able to enjoy and use their newly landscaped outdoor space in a timely manner.
Hardscape design is as important as softscape. Adding features such as walkways, fountains, stairs and elegant arbors can greatly enhance the beauty of your outdoor space.
Whether clients have a design in hand or are looking for advice and ideas, Jeff Smith can provide assistance. His decades of experience in San Diego County and eye for design allows him to combine the homeowners’ wishes with the requirements of the outdoor space – whether it calls for a patio roof, retaining wall or water-saving plant material – and create a landscape that will be attractive, functional and stand the test of time. Jeff’s expertise is backed up by a talented and experienced installation crew that is also able to perform demolition and site preparation, and complete a variety of softscape and hardscape installations.
As a lifelong resident of San Diego with a horticultural background, Jeff is able to identify which plant material will thrive in particular microclimates. Jeff is also experienced in making water-wise plant selections that will add color and visual interest to landscapes without driving up the water bill.
One of Jeff’s many design specialties is converting tropical, high water-consuming landscapes to low maintenance, drought tolerant Mediterranean landscape designs. For example, we have completed landscape renovations in tract-sized yards in $15,000 to $18,000 price range, creating a low-maintenance, water-friendly design, resulting in a decreased water bill and zero exterior work for the homeowner.
