6 weeks after the installation our garden is thriving and is the talk of the neighborhood.
We hired GLD to redo our front yard and are very pleased with the results. Andy provided a detailed line-item estimate, and made scoping the effort easy. He and his team showed up when they said they would, and finished on budget and on schedule. His team is as polite and careful as they come, and they work really hard. We liked that Andy paused the effort for a few days when we hit the crazy hot spell in October; we were worried about the impact on his crew. The proof is in the pudding; 6 weeks after the installation our garden is thriving and is the talk of the neighborhood.

Thoughtful, reasonably priced…understood what we wanted.
We searched for someone who would listen to what we wanted to do, review it before saying they could help, and then lay out a plan that was thoughtful, reasonably priced, and was accompanied with a schedule for the work. Andrew was that person. He understood what we wanted, believed he could help and then with his associates, executed the plan on budget and on time. Our existing California native based landscape before he arrived was good but he made it better. We would recommend him without hesitation.

Professional and creative.
We have used GLD Landscape and Design several times and find them to be professional, creative and easy to work with. I'm happy to recommend them.

Very responsive, reasonably priced and finished quickly.
I would highly recommend GLD Landscape & Design. The owner, Andrew, was quick to respond to my request for an estimate and met with me often to go over what design I wanted for my back yard. He had great ideas and always made sure the work was to my satisfaction.
Everyone did a great job on my backyard landscape. They trimmed all the trees on my property, planted new trees and plants, reconfigured my plant borders, reseeded the backyard and built a new pathway from the side gate to my patio. They were very responsive, reasonably priced and finished the job quickly. I will call Andrew again when I'm ready to do my front yard.

Our front and back yard both look fantastic!
The crew was super professional and the work is immaculate. We asked for a combination of drought-tolerant landscaping, traditional landscaping, and artificial turf, and GLD delivered in all areas. We also had to have some old trees removed and the process went smoothly.
Our front and back yard both look fantastic!

They don't just fulfill the contract and go... They actually care about the results.
We would be very happy to recommend GLD Design and Landscape. They were very helpful in planning a beautiful design that met our needs beautifully. The execution was also wonderful. The staff were pleasant and hardworking.
We are really thrilled with GLD's ideas to put in a water feature next to a two person hammock to create a relaxing area.
The owner, Andy Epstein, also suggested some garden art that added a lot of visual interest. We feel so happy to have such a lovely retreat.
One of the most important elements of this experience was the terrific aftercare. They don't just fulfill the contract and go... They actually care about the results and pop by to make sure everything is as it should be.
We would be happy to refer any friends and family

Landscape that you only dream about.
We inherited our parent’s home, which needed a makeover! We cleaned out the ancient overgrowth in the gardens, but where to begin the re-design! After months of drawing our own outlines of gardens, we were fortunate to meet Andrew Epstein, designer extraordinaire. Within a very short time, Andy had created an easy maintenance, attractive plan.
His landscape installation was flawless and timely. Even when a plant failed to survive, he was right there to make it right. It was so easy to communicate with Andy, night or day. I recommend GLD for personalized service and the landscape that you only dream about - call Andy and you will be glad you did.
We now have a yard that makes you smile.
Since the DWP decided to cut down the LA County residence watering usage, and we had a corner lot home, we didn’t like the idea of “brown being the new green”. Driving home one day, I took a side street and saw a home that had a unique front yard with no grass. I called the number on the sign that was in the yard (GLD Landscape) and tried to describe what I liked about it and what I didn’t like about it. I asked the gentleman on the phone, if he could just come over to my home to see it and “fix it”. He (GLD owner Andy Epstein) came right over.
That day, that side street changed my home forever.
Andy shared with us how and where to turn and how to get the ball rolling on our end for the rebate info. While he started visualizing the design on his end, I had no clue how to guide him other than to tell him to make the yard amazing and stand out and be different. We found out, we only had one shot at the rebate opportunity; so we decided to do the back yard at the same time. We had grass all in the front, side and back, but since my kids are older, there was no sense in us having brown, unattractive looking yards to look at on a daily basis. Now we have an improved sprinkler system and our water bill isn’t through the roof any longer.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the transformation of both the front yard and the back yard become art. There were up lights put in just the right spots to light up the yard, which added that special touch. We are very pleased.
I would, absolutely, recommend GLD Landscape in the future to anyone. Besides getting rid of your grass, sprinklers and large water bills, we now have a yard that makes you smile when you look at it every day.
We couldn't be happier.
GLD designed and installed drought tolerant landscaping for our backyard. Andrew and his team were responsive, fast, creative and worked within our budget. We couldn't be happier with the end result.
Back to life.
I am very pleased to write about Andy Epstein's outstanding work designing, implementing and bringing back to life the landscape all around my house.
Andy was attentive to detail, punctual and fair. I highly recommend him.
