Once we decided to do a full front and back yard makeover, calling Susanna Pagan Landscape Design was the best decision we made. What impressed us the most about Susanna is her communication and follow-through. She really listened to what we wanted, was able to translate our aesthetic into a well-designed plan within our budget and made herself available to us for questions throughout the entire process. Susanna’s attention to every detail including (but not limited to!) her knowledge of native horticulture, tile selections, color choices, HOA rules and regulations, even lighting and furniture options, is evident in the stunning results of our outdoor spaces. One of our neighbors told us our front yard belongs on a magazine cover…you just can’t beat a compliment like that! We have already recommended Susanna Pagan to anyone who asks and will continue to do so. Thank you Susanna for designing the outdoor spaces of our dreams!Read More

Susanna redesigned my entire backyard and did a great job. Very in tune with creative possibilities and it turned out great! Best out there and very reasonable.Read More

Working with Susanna was a wonderful experience. She listened to what we wanted & took into account we have 4 boys when laying out our front & backyard. Even after completing the plans, Susanna took time to meet with our contractors to make sure they understood what to do, were installing the right plants & providing feedback based on her experience. We’ve recommended her to friends & people we didn’t know that stopped by because they liked our yard so much. We spend most of our time outdoors now & it brings us so much peace and happiness having such a well thought out, beautiful yard to surround us. Thank you Susanna!Read More

Susanna was amazing to work with from beginning to finish of our backyard remodel. We first saw an example of Susannas' landscape design at the San Diego Horticulture Garden Tour in Encinitas and loved what she had done. After contacting her she responded in a very timely manner and met with us. We immediately loved her friendly, outgoing personality and her professionalism. Susanna explained the process of her work to us, listened to our input and had great ideas and suggestions on how to incorporate them. Susanna was flexible with changes we had and incorporated our feedback wonderfully into the design. She worked very well with the contractors hired, some recommended by her, and kept checking in to ensure the project was going well. We feel lucky that we got to work with Susanna, she is very talented and has a great eye for design. We are thrilled with the outcome, the selections of plants, materials and colors. We can highly recommend Susanna Pagan Landscape Design.Read More

Susanna is exceptionally good at what she does. She creates beautiful landscape designs but she doesn't just do it for you, she does it with you. From our initial meeting, we felt listened to and heard by Susanna. She asked a lot of questions to understand our likes and dislikes, she shared her ideas and suggestions, and she really helped us shape our vision for our back and front yard before she started working on the drawings. Susanna set our expectations up-front as far as the timing of each step of the process, and she met all her commitments. Once the design was done, she recommended several contractors to do bids on our project. Based on the bids, she worked with the contractor we selected to make a few changes to the original design to make the project less expensive. She was patient and accommodating, and creative, so, in the end, we were able to get to what we wanted at a lower cost. Throughout the project, Susanna was available for questions, and she came to the property to check on how things were progressing. Susanna has impeccable taste and a great eye for color/shape combinations, so we also relied on her to shop for the accent pieces, and were very happy with what she was able to find. All in all, we had a great experience working with Susanna and would highly recommend her.Read More
