Planning your dream home landscape design in Fallbrook

Your dream landscape design starts with your list of must-have features and any ideas you have for how you would like your property to look and function. Once you know what you want, it is time to bring in a local, professional landscape designer who can take your dream and turn it into reality. An important part of this is helping homeowners consider factors that they sometimes overlook, such as how many features you can realistically fit in the space, the safety and infrastructure needs of your property, how quickly you need the project finished, how much you can spend on the project, and how the architectural style of your home might influence the project.

If you choose us as your landscape contractors, we will walk you through the design process and installation, make sure you love your completed project, and will still be around years from now if your artificial grass needs repair or your pavers need to be sealed.

Why Should I Hire a Fallbrook-Based Landscape Designer?

Local Knowledge

Your landscape design project is going to be affected by a variety of factors. Some of these are specific to your area, such as the local climate, terrain, and rules and regulations. Choosing local professionals who have years of experience working in this area will help ensure that your designer and contractors have the local knowledge that will help make your project a success.

Coastal Influence Understanding

Fog, salt spray, and wind are some great examples of the coastal influences that affect landscape design and installation in coastal and near-coastal communities. While Fallbrook is not right on the coast, it is good to have landscape contractors who are familiar with working with these coastal influences if they do affect your property.

Hillside and Canyon Experience

While coastal influences may not be an issue for your property, there is a much higher chance that hills, canyons, and uneven terrain are. North County San Diego is home to rolling hills and canyons, which means you likely need a landscape designer and contractors who know which features and materials work best in this situation and how to install them most effectively.

Access to Local Resources

Working with local professionals who have relationships with local contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers will help make your landscaping project a success.

What Landscape Design Styles Are Common in Fallbrook?

Fallbrook homeowners most often choose low-maintenance, low-water landscaping with upscale outdoor living areas and functional features, such as putting greens, outdoor kitchens, and sports courts.

Does Install-It-Direct Design for Earthquakes, Wildfires, or Mudslides?

Yes, our team at Install-It-Direct is accustomed to designing with the risk of natural disasters in mind. In this area, we can help you reduce the risk of wildfire damage or loss by creating a defensible space around your home and including fire-resistant plants and hardscapes in your design. For mudslide-prone areas, we can design for erosion control and discuss the need for retaining walls. If earthquakes are your main concern, we can help you choose hardscapes that can better withstand and recover from movement, such as pavers for driveways and patios.

What Does the Process of Hiring Install-It-Direct Entail?

The first step is to send us an email or give us a call to get a free estimate. One of our landscape design professionals will then come to your property for an on-site consultation, create a 3D rendering of the project, discuss your timeline and budget, and answer any questions you have.

What Questions Should I Ask Install-It-Direct?

Initial questions to ask any landscape contractor include:

  • Are your contractors licensed, bonded, and insured?
  • Do you have worker’s comp and general liability insurance?
  • Are you licensed with the Contractors State License Board (CSLB)?
  • Do you have the correct licenses for the type of services I am requesting?
  • How long have you been in business and providing the type of services I need?
  • Do you have a list of completed projects in the area that I can look at in person?


How much does it cost to consult a landscape architect?

Professional landscape design cost is affected by several factors, such as the size of your project, the features and finishes to be included, the type of professional and their level of experience, and the location of your home.

Install-It-Direct offers free consultations that include an on-site assessment and estimate, so you will have an idea of how much it will cost for us to complete your project before deciding to work with us.

What is the difference between a landscaper and a landscape designer?

Landscape designers work closely with homeowners to understand your needs, budget, and timeline while also helping you determine your must-have features, any safety or structural issues that need to be addressed, and how best to use the space you have. They can help you create a plan for your entire property or just one area or outdoor living space. They will then create a 3D rendering of your project, go over your questions and concerns, and act as a general contractor for the installation.

Landscapers work for landscape maintenance companies and focus on lawn care, light tree service, weeding, pruning, property cleanup, raking ground covers, and keeping irrigation systems functioning properly. They will sometimes also repair and maintain water features or landscape lighting and will sometimes provide some basic construction services, such as installing sod or walkways.

How much do landscapers charge per hour in Fallbrook?

Landscape maintenance in Fallbrook most often costs about $25 to $50 per person per hour.

How much should I budget for a landscape project?

Figuring out your budget can be challenging, particularly if you are not sure what you are including in the project or how much certain features cost. In general, if you are installing a new landscape or are undertaking a full remodel of your current landscaping, it is common to dedicate about 10% of the value of your home to your landscape design and installation. Neighborhoods with homeowner’s associations often have bylaws that will tell you how much you are expected to pay for landscaping for your home.
