Every once and a while, a firm pops up whose work redefines the industry. Today, we’ll be focusing on a local San Diego landscaping firm that has done just that with their high class work around the coastal areas of the county.

Torrey Pines Landscaping Company has been turning heads for a while now, with their intricately designed and impeccably implemented landscapes that capture not only the homeowner’s tastes and personalities, but also manage to incorporate much of California’s natural beauty and flora. The firm takes great pride in being Californian, and while many of their designs take foreign styles into account, much of their work builds on a continuity of hundreds of years of Californian architectural and landscaping beauty.

That doesn’t mean the firm can’t help their clients be transported across great distances and oceans upon entering their backyard. Just take a look at the Del Mar landscaping project featured in the pictures included with this article, whose owners wanted ‘to bring the feel of Hawai’i into their Del Mar home’, according to the project description.

Torrey Pines has won a staggering number of local awards over the years, including multiple San Diego Home & Garden awards for their breathtaking designs. The projects range from incorporating a new perimeter in a relatively small space to sprawling hillside terraces featuring multiple architectural and landscaping design inspirations from both locally and across the world.

While the magazine editors may be impressed, it is nothing compared to the satisfaction felt by their clients and customers. Their Houzz profile is chock-full of glowing testimonials, and their Yelp page is nothing to sneeze at as well:

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!
