Fixtures Of La Jolla Landscape Design: The Socal Jewels

Every once and a while, we like to feature a community or town whose residents have taken their outdoor residential designs to the next level. Today, we’ll cover one of my favorite places to visit in all of sunny California – La Jolla.

La Jolla is an upscale neighborhood skirting the northwest corner of San Diego, a seaside community containing some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the southland. The northern border is comprised of the Torrey Pines State Reserve, from which a rugged coastline runs down to a southern tip that features a gorgeous cove and the homey village of La Jolla.

The neighborhood residents work tirelessly to ensure that their homes aren’t entirely outmatched by the beauty of the local environment. Each house has been refurbished, redesigned, and remodeled over the years to leave a stamp of the owner’s personality and the commitment they made to create a gorgeous tapestry of color and craftsmanship in the design of their landscapes.

To assist in their luxurious land redevelopment, many residents have turned to professional crews to design and implement the outdoor extensions of their homes. One company that has stood out among the designers even here in La Jolla is Torrey Pines Landscape Company.

Located just outside the confines of the La Jolla neighborhood, Torrey Pines has nonetheless made its mark on the area by creating some of its crown jewels. Some of the community’s most memorable landscapes were drawn up, prepped, and constructed by the intrepid landscaping firm.

Through their incredible work and attention to detail, the company has created a loyal list of clients who are not shy about showing off their new yard spaces online. Take a look:

We had a fantastic experience working with Torrey Pines Landscaping.  Harry and his entire crew were wonderful to work with.  They designed a beautiful and functional front yard for our family that fit our lifestyle and compliments our home.  They really went above and beyond with every detail and the quality of their work.  Our yard stands out now and truly beautifies our home.

Our backyard garden remodel just recently was completed by Torrey Pines Landscape and we could not be more thrilled with the execution and the final result! Harry Thompson and his crew designed our dream backyard and made it a reality. Our space is on a city-sized lot in the Banker’s Hill area and he addressed every challenge our space presented. The entire crew was completely respectful of our privacy, maintaining our security of our yard and keeping the site neat and tidy at the end of each day. Every day, either Harry or Mark would come and check in on the progress of the project and Harry had the crew rebuild part of our custom fountain because he was not satisfied with how it looked initially! Dave, the project supervisor was fantastic to work with and provided valuable insight for things concerning the BBQ island and how the layout would work best. Every single detail was considered, from dog-friendly plants to lighting. I can not recommend them highly enough, they are true craftsmen and if you can dream it, they can create it!
