to David Clarke Design! We are a San Diego-based landscape design
company and hope our website is helpful for anyone considering a
change of their outdoor living spaces. DCD is committed to
providing our clients top-quality work with a strong emphasis on
environmentally appropriate landscape design.
We are firm believers in the Watershed Approach to landscape design and encourage our clients to learn more about this concept. As water is precious here in Southern California (especially in our continuing drought), we strive to help clients create less-thirsty landscapes that emphasize beauty, functionality, and sustainability. With these goals in mind we carefully select appropriate plant species and hardscape materials that work in harmony with your existing home and climate zone. CA native species are emphasized.
We offer professionally drafted plan sets, rainwater harvesting ideas, water rebate program assistance, and fire-wise landscape design. Please note we are a design-only practice, but we can recommend qualified professionals to help you fulfill your landscape goals.
Visit the Design Process section for a more in-depth explanation of how we work and how David Clarke Design can help you achieve a beautiful and environmentally responsible landscape.
What our clients are saying...
We hired David to design a water-wise landscape garden. From our first meeting to the finished project, he has been excellent to work with. During our first meeting, he asked for our concerns, time commitment to our garden and what we hoped to achieve. Keeping those important things in mind, he has designed the most beautiful, serene, water saving garden for our home. He has been very professional and informative. I would highly recommend him to anyone without any reservations."—Neelima C., Chula Vista
