THE GARDEN LIFE
The biggest boutique landscape company in Santa Barbara, we build and maintain gardens that enhance life. Morning coffee on a sunlit, sandstone patio, dinner for a hundred under the oaks with the scent of jasmine in the air, grandchildren romping on a soft, green lawn.
This is why you live here.
