I just wanted to write a brief letter of recommendation for Steve of DuBridge Landscape Architecture. I’ve wanted to update and enhance the exterior appeal of my Santa Barbara style home for some time but I’ve always been too busy. Finally, I called Steve for some direction, mainly because he was local but his ideas for the landscaping design and architectural upgrades immediately won me over. Not only did he design a make-over for the front and back yard but sourced a fountain, bench, building materials, plants and canvas awnings for the front door and windows that I hadn’t even considered but were exactly the touch to add dimension and underscore the Santa Barbara look I was after. His design was so unique and he didn’t stop at the design board either but...

We cannot find enough wonderful things to say about DuBridge Landscape Architecture!

We cannot find enough wonderful things to say about DuBridge Landscape Architecture! You have just designed an incredible overhaul of our backyard and we could not be happier. From our first meeting with you and the way that you listened to what we wanted and came back to us with plans beyond our dreams, we knew we had chosen wisely. The design of our swimming pool and outdoor kitchen is breathtaking. The custom waterfall above the pool, along with the hidden grotto chair is unbelievable. We love the various flowerbeds you created along with the unique shapes of them. Using our existing, large natural stones throughout the yard was great! The plants along with all the lighting you strategically placed throughout the backyard are amazing. The light hanging down...

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.
