- About Us
Nature Designs has a 35-year reputation for restoring San Diego estates to their optimum beauty. Our team works closely with Principals and Estate Managers to create a landscape program focused on restoring each property to its original intent – or better. Our estate crew specializes in working strategically at each visit to combine horticultural knowledge, design aesthetics, construction knowledge and sustainable maintenance practices to insure that your financial investment and long-range goals are realized.
Not sure whether your property and personal needs align with our regular maintenance or estate programs? Listed below is an explanation of the difference. Feel free to call us to schedule our first meeting to discuss your property.
The Estate Manager is the first point-of-contact for clients, crew supervisors and sub-contractors.
“For years my wife and I have employed a landscape staff, and struggled with management, compensation and safety issues – along with the feeling that our property wasn’t at its best. Hiring Nature Designs relieved us of all these issues and provided us with specialists that met our every need. Our 2-acre property looks better than we could have imaged [sic] and we let Nature Designs handle the staff training, insurance and payroll issues.”

“Nature Designs’ crews are professional, qualified, responsive and detailed – and their staff passes our thorough background investigation. Each visit is led by an Estate Manager, and they are in a constant state of improving our property; all within a tightly managed budget. For the first time we’re focused on long-range planning for equipment replacement and repairs instead of the previous ‘broke/fix’ style of management.”
– Estate Manager, Rancho Santa Fe, CA
“Within twelve months of working with Nature Designs, they completely transformed our property. Our water usage was reduced by 20% almost immediately. They manage every aspect of our landscape from construction projects and irrigation renovation, to tree pruning, organic garden production, bamboo grove and fruit orchard care. We entertain extensively and Nature Designs continues to impress us with their attention to detail.”

“We’ve worked with several landscape contractors who say they provide estate maintenance services but have never experienced the quality or professionalism that we’ve enjoyed with Nature Designs.”
– House Manager, La Jolla, CA
“Our previous gardener worked for many large properties in our area and claimed to be qualified to provide high-level landscape management services, however, we realized that many of our palm trees had been pruned improperly, and each contracted Fusarium disease. These mature trees are now in a slow state of decline. The cost of replacing these trees, and the loss of value to our property, has been beyond disappointing. Nature Designs is now restoring our property and replanting these trees. We are learning an expensive lesson about the value of working with a certified arborist and educated professionals.”
