About Us

About Us

Better Landscape is a complete design and build company, offering every aspect of landscape construction and more. Better Landscape is operated by Steve and Cecilia Ashley, general contractor and landscape designer. We have a fantastic team of craftsman that weve had the pleasure to work with over the years which has enabled us to build a diverse and talented team that can carry out virtually any task. We have experienced landscapers, skilled masons, concrete specialists, carpenters and plumbers. We take a tremendous amount of pride in the work we do. We realize that a combination of excellent craftsmanship, proper management and superior communication with our clients is the recipe for a successful and fulfilling project. From a unique design that fits your needs, to a quality installation, our goal is your complete satisfaction. Better Landscape is a licensed (C-27, General B and C-8, CSLB #851514), bonded and insured company.

Because we are a general contractor, we can handle the whole project, saving the client the time of hiring several contractors for different aspects of the job. Pouring concrete, building bbqs and pergolas is not something a landscaping only (c-27) is licensed to do by themselves. We understand the value of your investment and provide the security that all work done is licensed.

Our company is built for the person who looks at their yard as an extension of their home and truly understands the value of time well spent. Most of us lead busy lives, so when the time comes to relax or entertain, it should be done in a place you truly enjoy being. Our homes are out sanctuaries and our outdoor living/landscaping should reflect the same energy, if not more.

Our enduring purpose is to create an outdoor environment that truly enriches our lives. What makes our job so fulfilling is that each and every project is unique. We all have our own individual preferences, so different design styles, materials, and elements appeal to us accordingly. Making each and every project the best that it can be for every client is our core value.

Once our construction is complete, we offer a customized maintenance program for our clients their landscape to remain in good hands. Our service is very different from the typical "mow and blow" services. Our service is customized to our clients specific yard/garden requirements. Some of the services include: proper pruning, organic fertilization, irrigation system maintenance to ensure efficient/proper operation, low voltage lighting maintenance, soil amendments and mulching, power washing stone/concrete patios and periodic sealing, redwood staining, and periodic outdoor kitchen appliance cleaning.

We are people who enjoy being outdoors and are a company built for people who appreciate the same. Whether for privacy, entertaining, meditating, relaxing or all of the above, we want the construction process to be a rewarding experience from start to finish. Quality communication plays a big role in that process as well as attention to detail. These qualities, along with fine craftsmanship are what you should expect when working with Better Landscape.

We specialize in custom outdoor kitchens, stone patios, and interlocking pavers driveways...
