I began professionally landscaping in 1998 when I started working under my mentor, Tom Piergrossi. While working with Tom, I was fortunate to be part of the two time Emmy Award winning television show "Down to Earth" which is shown on San Diego County Public Television.
In 2003, I started my own company, Rich's Landscape Visions. I use simple concepts of soil amending, mulching and proper irrigation to create healthy, low-maintenance landscapes and gardens. The choice of plants and design create a natural and relaxing environment. Two houses I designed and landscaped were featured in the 2012 Mission Hills Garden Tour and one house was featured in the 2015 Point Loma Garden Tour.
I incorporate Sinjin inspired pruning (lacing) of all trees and shrubs. I also create hardscape areas from a variety of natural materials. I believe in "old world" craftsmanship that will stand the test of time.
I am a licensed contractor bonded and insured. Landscapes can be created from the ground-up or I can edit the existing landscape and/or garden.
I design and build for each individual client and provide a unique landscape for everyone. Because I am well versed in a variety of plants, I create designs to fit the individual needs of the client.
