Landscape Design

We love communication.

At dlb designs, we work with our clients to create outdoor living spaces that are beautiful, creative, functional, and easy to maintain.

Good communication helps us learn and meet each clients’ needs. We are responsive partners on your landscape team—you’ll always know where you are in the process. With our expertise and inventiveness, we ultimately arrive at a unique and sustainable design that can be enjoyed for years.


CADD/3D and Traditional Renderings

We do it all.

For homeowners that need specifications presented clearly, we can provide computer aided design and drafting documents (CADD), 3D renderings, and/or traditional hand rendered sketches of your own designs. We also offer this service to landscape design professionals who are looking to outsource for technology skills. Your designs can then be ready for installers and landscape contractors.


Woodwork / Specialty Decor

It’s all about the details. 

We can give your garden or outdoor living space a personality with custom décor, from unique garden art and furnishings to custom woodwork—and even one-of-a-kind cat stairs! We also design bespoke trellises, benches, bridges, arbors, and laser cut aluminum screens ready to be incorporated into any design style.

Give us a challenge!

We are known for our eco-friendly, quality landscaping that our clients in the Bay Area appreciate and trust. From small, neighborhood gardens to outdoor kitchens and entertainment spaces, we approach every project with care and meticulous detail. We believe in building lasting relationships with our clients, getting to know them and their personal style, so we can bring their vision to life. Let us highlight the best in your outdoor space.

Woodwork / Specialty Décor

Custom-made wood products are often our most requested pieces. That’s because there is no better way to personalize your garden than with something specially created for you. We take extra steps to ensure each piece is an exquisitely designed one-of-a-kind product, often repurposing materials you already have on site. Is there something in mind you’d like created? Let us know and we'll be happy to get started.

Conservation Rebates

Nearly every job we do incorporates work that qualifies for a rebate. Large or small, we have been working with the county on landscape conversions for years. Let us translate those confusing Latin and Greek botanical names and exhausting calculations into a beautiful garden. Soon, you will have an outdoor space that is eco-friendly, water-wise, and easy to maintain. The only thing you’ll need to do is enjoy it.
