Kudos, Steve. Thanks again

Hi Steve, Karin and I are happy to provide this letter of recommendation to whomever may be interested regarding your professional landscape architectural design service. During the construction of our home, Karin and I knew we had a unique site with great potential. A 9,400 sq. ft. home within 6/10 of an acre is a total challenge to site and landscape properly. As expected, as the house took shape, backburner issues like landscape design became paramount, such as; the proper driveway alignment, its impact on the front entry, how do we handle the important side yard and in the already tight backyard that needed a pool, outdoor kitchen and a place to eat; these all became important concerns for us. Steve DuBridge of DuBridge Landscape Architecture entered the...

Steve Dubridge made my husband’s dream of a tropical oasis come to life in Northern California

Steve Dubridge made my husband’s dream of a tropical oasis come to life in Northern California. Not an easy job since this isn’t the tropics. Steve is detail oriented and a perfectionist. He sees a vision to the end. I remember he even hand drew the lines into our concrete deck to give it the look we desired. He let nothing to chance. He was here for all the planting and placed every plant himself. He had great ideas about giving our backyard the finishing touches: large pots for our patio, firepit chairs for our firepit, and a covering for our arbor. He was incredibly thorough. He was always quick to respond. He was sensitive to our budget and needs. Six years after he completed a total remodel of our backyard, every person that comes into our yard...

Extremely satisfied with Steve’s work.

Steve was recommended to us by a friend who did a substantial remodel of his back yard. We decided to engage with Steve to remodel our back yard and put in a pool. Steve’s creativity in fact made our backyard look larger than it previously did after adding a pool and a covered BBQ area. We were delighted with the outcome and the attention Steve paid to the project ensuring that the pool contractor and hardscape contractor accurately implemented the design. We found Steve to be extremely professional and hands on. We have received many compliments on the remodel and, in fact, recommended Steve to other friends.

I am very happy with the way my front yard looks now. The design is creative, and unique

Although I love my house, I was never happy with the way the outside looked. When the City informed me that I had to replace most of my sidewalk, I decided the time was right to have the landscape updated. Steve provided drawings with two distinct options. The one I chose, incorporated a brick walkway and a sculpted poured concrete walkway. Even before the planting was completed, my neighbors began complimenting me on the new look. When it was time for the plants, Steve sent me a list of plants so I could select the ones that I liked. He used many of the existing plants and incorporated new ones. He asked about my color preferences. I continue to get compliments about the landscaping. I notice that people walking their dogs often stop to look at the plantings. I...

We enjoyed our design process with Steve

We enjoyed our design process with Steve. He listens carefully to your criteria, identifies your style, and steers you away from “disastrous” ideas. He is patient, polite and prompt in communication. His design is meticulous, often adding minute graceful touches that distinguishes my backyard elements from my neighbor’s. There is a harmonious balance of proportions, textures and articulation that coalesces the backyard with my home. His passion and dedication to a project is illustrated in his many trips to the project site during installation. I recommend Dubridge Landscape if you are looking for a smooth design and installation process, especially if you don’t have sufficient time to supervise every detail.
