I couldn’t be happier with my landscape design by Sills Landscape Design! My yard brings me so much joy - rain or shine! It is drought tolerant and low maintenance, integrating the natural earth style with today’s easy living standards. It boasts a peaceful coloration of earth tones with an eye-pleasing structure emphasizing the relationship between succulents and rocks. I highly recommend Sills Landscape Design! Connie S.Read More

We hired Sills Landscape Design to come up with a new design for our front and back yards. Andrea was Very Profession and she is Very Knowledgeable with plants. She was very detailed in her Q&A to make sure she was meeting our needs and in sharing her expert opinions. Andrea then provided us with a detailed design with a ledger on the suggested plants. We were very impressed. Andrea also assured us that she would be there for the installation to make sure everything was done perfectly. We Highly Recommend Sills Landscape Design!!Read More

Andrea is always a pleasure to work with. She designed our landscape 16 years ago and now helped us again with refresh. She listened to our needs and always meticulous with her works. I would work with her over and over again. Thank you so much Andrea!Read More

Andrea was wonderful in listening to what we wanted and took our words and designed a concept from our words. The terrain she had to work with was a bit of a challenge, part hill, part septic drain field, but she did an amazing job blending everything together so that it flowed and did not look odd. The concept was changed several times during construction due to request by the county or our contractor. She pitched right in as if we were not bothering her and gave advice or redrew the plan. Andrea is very knowledgeable, patient and has an eye for plants and design. We would highly recommend her.Read More

Andrea did an amazing job designing the landscaping for our Sunset Cliffs home in San Diego. The project included Mediterranean style retaining walls, three outdoor fireplaces and fire pits, multiple fountains, a built-in jacuzzi, an ocean-view deck with exposed beam arbor, a romantic bench swing, an outdoor kitchen, numerous stone and granite features, and an extensive array of lush trees, plants, and ground cover. Eight years after she completed the project, we still get frequent complements from guests. Our home faces the ocean with spectacular views, yet we constantly see passers-by pointing their cameras away from the water to take photos of our home as they comment on various landscaping features. Every step of the way, Andrea was a delight to work with. She started by fully understanding the experience we wanted to create, and how we envisioned using each of the outdoor spaces on the property. Her process included a detailed assessment of interior view angles, the lines-of-sight guests would experience from multiple vantage points throughout the terraced property, and the type of hard scape features and plant life that would integrate well into both the style of the house and the surrounding terrain. Andrea is enormously talented, a great listener, and a joy to work with. She has our enthusiastic recommendation. Photos: More

It was such a pleasure to work with Andrea on our landscaping project. She has a wealth of experience and a rare combination of both architecture and landscape design and it is absolutely evident when you see her designs and vision. It is very important for her to get the input of as many of the family members when she first gets started, so that she can try to encompass all of our thoughts. My husband and I immensely enjoyed the ideas that she bounced off of us so that she could better envision what we both wanted. She is meticulous and thoughtful in picking out the plants that not only suit us, but are also appropriate for where we live in San Diego. She was very much involved from the beginning through the end of the lanscaping project - landscape design, interactions with our landscaper etc... Thanks again Andrea for your beautiful vision!! Everything looks fabulous - we can't thank you enough!! Gorgeous design! In fact, so much so that we are already getting requests for your name by our friends !Read More

Very please with Andrea’s design ideas and plant choices. She is easy to work with listens to ideas you may have and let’s you know which plants work in your area and yard. We are very happy with her work and our yard looks beautiful.Read More

Andrea was a wonderful thought partner through all stages of our project. She is very easy to talk to. We had very productive early conversations, and she clearly listened well as first drafts of our landscape plan were already almost perfect. We especially appreciated her creative ideas for a few tricky areas of the plan, as well as her understanding of budget objectives along the way. Also very valuable during this time when it is so hard to find installers, Andrea was great about recommending people who could do a great job for us. We have recommended Andrea to friends, and hear similar feedback on their experiences.Read More

We worked with Andrea for our design in Poway. Her plant selection and hardscape design ideas were excellent. She really zeroed in on what we liked, and incorporated those items into an excellent plan. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.Read More

I was so fortunate to first learn about Andrea Sills on Nextdoor who had completed numerous projects in the Point Loma area for extremely satisfied clients who raved about her work! What first struck me about Andrea is that she captured my vision even though it took several iterations to realize what it was that I wanted!! Andrea is a consummate professional who brings her engineering razor sharp vision to the implementation of the design concepts. She took into account everything in my front and back yard environments--color, shapes, hardscape, design and decor, location of neighboring properties and went way beyond the actual horticulture plan I thought we would be limited to! There were so many major and minor changes to the existing hardscape that vastly improved the appearance of my home. Andrea exercised such exactitude in making recommendations and measured the entire front and back yards to ensure the implementation of her planting and other designs would work, and she achieved perfection! Also, even though the point of this review is to convey what an amazing landscape architect Andrea is, I have to emphasize that she is very conscientious of keeping the cost reasonable for the client. I feel I achieved tremendous value for the payment I made for Andrea's services. Andrea turned my backyard into my own private oasis, and I am so grateful to her for that! I highly recommend Andrea Sills and urge you to contact her, even if it is to get an estimate for the work you need to get done. You will never regret it!!Read More

Andrea designed our front and back yard. She helped us with a complete redesign which has added a clean, modern feel that is full of lively, colorful plants mixed with hard scapes that create a beautiful spaces through our yard. She is easy to work with, very accessible and honest. She has extensive knowledge in architecture, landscape design and horticulture. Additionally, no yard has a design like ours because she incorporates the style of the house with our taste, lifestyle and needs which makes the design beautifully unique. We highly recommend Andrea.Read More

After having a front lawn for 30 years we decided it was time to ditch the grass and redo the landscape with a water conservation design. The landscape contractor we selected for our project recommended we have a design created by Sills Landscape Design, who he has previously worked with many times on these types of projects. We contacted Andrea Sills and discussed our ideas for this project. Andrea listened intently to our objectives for the design for our cul-de-sac front yard and provided her initial thoughts on hardscape features and suggested an appropriate mix of low water use plants for the planting areas and existing flower box. We were immediately impressed with Andrea’s knowledge and methodology for performing landscape design, so we contracted her to do our project. Andrea took measurements of the front yard configuration and in a few short weeks produced a detailed design layout, complete specifications for hardscape materials, soil preparation, plant selections and locations, and drainage requirements. The design includes a dry creek bed the length of the yard with a faux “waterfall” feature that adds visual interest to the creek bed and includes specifications for the rock and boulder types used. The planting layout includes colorful focus areas, including yellow flowing Sundrops that complement the color pallet of the overall design. These design considerations demonstrate Andrea’s considerable experience in developing unique plans for each property. Andrea’s design was then executed by our contractor in 20 days and the result is stunning. We are very pleased with every choice she made for color pallet, visual effects, and ease of maintenance. We wholeheartedly recommend Andrea Sills for landscape design consultation and planning.Read More

Andrea Sills listened to all my requests for our back yard and created an amazing design with fresh ideas and lots of expert recommendations.

We are calling Andrea to help us with our front yard next. We highly recommend her.Read More

From our initial contact with Andrea Sills, we were struck by her keen focus on our landscape needs, the professionalism in her approach to developing a landscape design, and her impressive knowledge of plants and materials. She spent a considerable amount of time identifying what plants and colors we really responded to and how our available space could best be utilized to help enrich our daily lives. For instance, she identified a previously unused space as perfect for a meditative area; now I look forward to spending time there every day. We found Andrea to be detailed and thorough; her personal warmth and caring made our landscape project feel like an exciting collaboration and an effort that was “just right”. We cannot recommend Sills Landscape Designs highly enough! Lee S. San Diego, CaRead More

Referring to a Sills Landscape designed bungalow's landscaping, North Park historian Don Covington said that, "(The) landscaping (is) one of the best he's seen on a California bungalow."
