Landscape Art

In every profession, certain individuals put such an intense level of focus and energy into perfecting their craft that the results often become near works of art in their own right. This applies to carpentry, manufacturing, and – the subject of today’s article – landscaping.

We’re all well aware of the intense beauty of past landscaping efforts in places like Versailles, but what if I told you we have some of the most interesting and gorgeous contemporary pieces of landscaping right here in southern California? Companies like Torrey Pines Landscaping Company operating right here out of Point Loma are creating some of the most complex and beautiful cultural and local landscaping projects in the world, and they have the portfolio to prove it.

Their work, which has won recognition from a number of local publications like San Diego Home & Garden, has transformed disastrous yards suffering from decades of neglect into intricate works of art. Where there were once yards consisting of nothing but some dying grass and a few scraggily trees comes a botanical paradise that takes you through a number of the world’s histories via varying architecture and landscaping styles.

Their customers also have nothing but good things to say about them – their G-page and Yelp reviews have a number of long and glowing testimonials regarding their professionalism and the quality of their work. Robert Engler left this review, for instance, on Google:

Torrey Pines is the 4th company, starting over 10 years ago, we have had for landscapers. We had two mow & blow companies, and one other professional company but weren’t happy. TP fantastic. Our site supervisor is a true horticulture expert, the employees have an educational 1/2 day every other week, we NEVER have to worry about anything and our 1 acre+ of landscaping is a joy and pleasure. They just did a major needed driveway and retaining wall replacement; they are excellent hardscape contractors as well. They asked to copy and paste the note I sent them, but it wasn’t sufficient to communicate the quality of their work.

Gary Elliott, also through Google, remarks on the company’s uniquely exceptional work:

I cannot think of another company that has performed so exceptionally. I want to credit Doug Dilworth and his team that worked with us every step of the way as we transformed our backyard wasteland into a work of art. Doug is creative professional who stands by his word and delivered as one could only hope. I highly recommend Torrey Pines Landscape Company.

Finally, Ryan S. tells a story about Torrey Pines rectifying the horror show that was their new home’s landscaping upon purchase:

“We bought a home in the Crosby in Rancho Santa Fe, and it was an ugly mess of landscaping with a design that made the front look short and covered the back golf course view.  It needed a major beautification.  
We knew we needed Torrey Pines Landscaping, and their wonderful team lead by the humble Harry Thompson.  Harry has a servant’s heart plus a special talent for landscape design.  
Torrey Pines Landscaping transformed the ugly landscaping to an awarding winning design that ended up on the cover of San Diego Home/Garden.

The Adventures We Hope To Never Take

We are always hearing about accidents on the road, but we never expect one to happen to us or our loved ones. The reality is that tragedy can strike at any minute, even on days that are normally expected to be the happiest days of the year. On Christmas, one was killed and one was seriously hurt in a serious vehicle crash on a Southern California freeway.

Man Crossing Road

For most Americans, a simple car ride is nothing to think twice about. Whether you are on the road to work, the grocery store, a friend’s house, or the gym, a car ride is an event day event. Cars are an everyday necessity for most working people. It isn’t a surprise to see a car commercial of the newest and coolest model every time you turn on the television.

However, it is equally unsurprisingly to hear and see a report of a car accident every time you turn on the television or read the news. These are the adventures we never hope to take in life. What was supposed to be a simple trip to a destination from A to B turns into a catastrophe no one wishes to find themselves in.

If you find yourself in an accident, you must call the police and seek medical treatment immediately. Be sure to receive a copy of the official police report and take photos of the scene of the crash, including vehicles and license plates. You should call your insurance company to inform them of the crash and consult with a personal injury lawyer.

Most victims of car collisions do not know that they may be entitled to compensation. At first glance, accidents that appear minor can leave drivers with injuries that are not detectable or diagnosed. Injuries involving impact to the brain often do not manifest until later. The pain and damage of the injuries usually emerge and become evident a few days after the initial shock of the incident. This is why it is highly recommended to consult with a lawyer even if you are unsure of whether or not you can make a personal injury claim.

We understand that finding the right attorney can be difficult and confusing. A quick online search for the terms “car accident attorney Poway” will bring up over 260,000 Google results. It can be difficult to know who has a strong and trustworthy reputation. If you have been involved in a car accident and are looking to turn to an attorney based in San Diego, we highly recommend Villasenor Law Offices. Christopher Villasenor has litigated hundreds of cases, including personal injury disputes.

Greener Pastures Await Right in Your Own Back Yard

Spring time is here! 

Studies have shown that spending more time outside can have a direct connection to one’s emotional aptitude and mental wellness. In fact, spending more time outside is the only natural way to receive Vitamin D, which is necessary for our nervous systems, and can cause major problems if left deficient. 

And what about those outdoor grilling lovers? So many people enjoy a good backyard barbecue but lack the surroundings for typical enjoyment. Why not choose to make your yard a place you can truly relax in and get back to nature?

This got us to thinking and we began researching the benefits of landscaping in San Diego. We came across five great ones that you can read about below and we found the business that is making waves in the industry.

Our featured company might just be the fix that you and your yard need, providing customized landscaping options to create the oasis of your dreams. Studies have shown that having your yard landscaped can provide many benefits, such as the following:

  • Making memories in a private outdoor space: Having a relaxing place to rest and catch up with your relatives in the outdoors can actually increase the amount of time the whole family spends outside.
  • People love a good outdoor venue: It is a fact that when you have a nice yard more of your friends will want to occupy that space with you because of how comforting and relaxing the feel is. This translates to you becoming the coolest neighbor around. After all, everyone loves the ‘hostess with the most-est.’
  • Property values: By taking the time to have your yard professionally landscaped you can actually increase the value of your home and property. Which means your initial investment can actually pay for itself even after leaving you feeling healthier, happier, and more at peace.
  • Positive effect on the outdoor environment: Usually, landscaping is done with such finesse that it increases the likelihood of other woodland creatures coming to enjoy your outdoor space, as well. This means more birds if you happen to be a bird watcher, or possibly squirrels, chipmunks and other smaller creatures. When land is prepared for its climate it can reduce stormwater drainage and runoff or other natural erosion that could lead to additional, costly repairs down the road. Mulching, and laying sod can also prevent flooding when those spring downpours that April brings finally begin.
  • Ability to enjoy yourself without judgment: So, what if you enjoy that cold brewski at noon, if the sun is shining you should be able to right? Of course, and with a well-manicured back yard you’ll be able to do so at any time of the day without facing scrutiny from onlookers. What about old Rover? Taking your dog to the park may be a good day adventure, but what if you want to enjoy some fetch without having to walk too far or make a dreaded commute through traffic just to have to leash your dog once you get there?

To accomplish all of this it takes a top-notch landscaping company. San Diego is full of imitators, but luckily for you, we have found the very best. If you would like to transform your ordinary backyard into the envy of all of your neighbors then you need to get in contact with:
