What We Do



Hardscape is the framework to showcase your landscape. Custom walls and surfaces as well as irrigation and drainage keeps things beautiful and functional. From backyard BBQs, gazebos, driveways to fire-pits, we install whatever you need for the lifestyle you want.


Design & Install

After an in-person consultation we design a custom plan and estimate encompassing all the facets of your home, climate, desires and budget. Our install process is done with expert knowledge so you will enjoy your new outdoor space for decades to come.



Custom plant selection is just a part of our design process; with a horticulturist on staff you will receive the best plant material to meet your taste, style and climate. Whether you’re looking to save money on your water bill or live in a tropical paradise, we’ll bring your vision to life.



Since 1979 Landscape Assistance has been designing and installing custom landscapes for homeowners across San Diego county. Our specialty is large integrated outdoor living spaces for estates and custom residential homes. Working directly with homeowner and any subcontractors on site, we manage jobs start to finish.
