“I made the best decision ever when I hired Madrone Landscapes to do my atrium landscape…”

-Cherie, Review On Houzz

“We have had the great honor of meeting and getting to know almost all of Madrone’s team throughout the years. We are always very impressed with their teamwork, attention to detail, and innovative designs…”

-Purlieu Landscapes Design + Build, Review On Houzz

“The design team took the time to listen to all of our preferences in plants and gardening style and designed a landscape that would be low maintenance yet colorful and grow into a bird and butterfly friendly yard. Revisions and questions were handled promptly and professionally… We are very happy to have used Madrone Landscapes and would use them again.”

-C. K., Review On Houzz

“They were excellent to work with, very detailed and orderly keeping us informed at every step of the way. I would recommend them again and will use them again when needed [to] add on to my backyard oasis.”

-G.S., Review On Houzz

“The design team put together a fabulous design from our pretty scattered vision. The install team were beyond professional and nothing short of amazing to work with. Our project was beyond complicated and challenging and they knocked this project out of the park!”

-Kirsten, Review On Houzz

“We have had Madrone Landscapes do a second project for us, redesigning our backyard to include more hardscape and drought resistant plants. They worked with us and yielded a design that fit both our desires and budget. The crew was efficient, respectful of our privacy, and courteous. The end results were excellent. This is our second project, and we would highly recommend them. Its owner, Rick Matthews, makes this company run very well.”


“We are very happy with our backyard remodel, designed by Madrone Landscapes. They listened to what we wanted, and made lots of great suggestions. We put in new irrigation and lighting, as well as plants, fruit trees and decorative trees. We also gave a face lift to an old waterfall and pond. The work was done a year ago, and the yard looks great! We also have plans drawn up for the future, in case we want to extend the patio and build an outdoor kitchen. I would recommend Madrone Landscapes to anyone considering a yard remodel.”


“We had a fantastic experience working with your company. Everyone was very professional, courteous and on task. The project is beautiful and we love it. In fact, we have had wonderful comments and letters from neighbors, many of which we don’t even know! Everyone worked quickly and efficiently and were very nice. They were even nice to my children and my dog! They also cleaned up every day. We HIGHLY recommend Madrone Landscapes. Our yard is stunning and we couldn’t be happier with the results!”

-Erin and Dave

“Ramiro did a FANTASTIC job – thank you for his great work!”


“I am again amazed at the quality of Romy’s work, the water feature looks great, no leaks at all, and the upper patio is much nicer. We’re really glad we decided to replace the DG, well worth it. The new bridge will be beautiful, a significant improvement. As always, we are extremely happy the work you and your company have done for us! Thank you!!”


“Our home was destroyed in a fire. Upon completion of the new home, we were referred to Madrone Landscape by friends of ours that recently had their yard done. We wanted to get away from the huge amount of lawn we had, to a low maintenance, low water demand design. The Madrone designers came up with the exact look we wanted, perennial Mediterranean grasses with color. Our landscape has won several awards, and is used extensively by our local water district as an example of what can be accomplished while conserving water. The Madrone Landscape employees were always polite, professional, and willing to do whatever it took to make us happy. I can’t say enough good things about the folks at Madrone Landscapes.”

“Madrone Landscapes was already on board when I came onto the team for the Hotel SLO project, but it was immediately evident that they were an invested part of the process. Daniel was on top of submittals, and he made sure there was complete team buy-in on plant selection and sourcing. During landscape installation, I was impressed with the quality of their work. We were stacking trades tightly to meet construction milestones, and I appreciated Madrone’s willingness to work around those other trades. I would recommend Madrone Landscapes in a heartbeat.”

-Joel Neel, Project Manager, JW Design

“As you know, your standards are better than the rest. Most landscapers don’t conduct business like you guys do. You should always have a niche operating at this level. Yes, very happy with your services.”

-Jody B

“I would totally recommend their services as a company that does quality work and knows the business of plants and landscaping. Their pre- and post work is great…”

-J. E., Review On Houzz

“The Madrone team was very professional and responsive to changes we requested along the way, and the job was finished in a timely manner. We are very satisfied with the finished results!”

-Stanley, Review On Houzz

“But more than artists, they listened to my input, made additions and adjustments to design and construct (than you Ian!) one of the most beautiful pieces of functional outdoor art I’ve ever seen. They took my ideas, and blended them into the site, as if the art was already there, waiting to be let out.”

-Todd, Review On Houzz

“From the first meeting with the designers we were sold! Danah and Val were unbelievable – they listened to what we wanted and came up with a design that suits our family perfectly. They worked with us to choose drought tolerant and deer resistant plants, and designed a beautiful patio. We couldn’t be happier!”

-R. Bush, Review On Houzz

“We hired Madrone Landscapes to do both low maintenance, drought tolerant planting and hardscaping in our back yard. We were impressed with their organization and professionalism from start to finish… It was a weed ridden back yard and now it’s an enjoyable outdoor space.”

-T.D., Review On Houzz

“We were newcomers to this area and contacted Madrone Landscapes to give us a landscaping plan and an estimate for our new home. We liked their suggestions very much. The project was commenced and within three (3) weeks the job was completed. They did a professional and excellent job of planning and planting plants appropriate for this climate and environment. AND their selection of plants are very beautiful. We could not have asked for a more beautiful yard. We get a lot of compliments from all the neighbors and passersby.”


“From the first design consultation to final day of installation the team at Madrone was the best! Everyone was professional, thoughtful and thorough. We love our new landscape and cant wait to enjoy it over the years!”


“From the time I called Madrone, I received nothing but amazing service, perfect follow through and communication. Taylor quoted the job, put me on the calendar and finished the job as promised. I am just so pleased and will recommend you guys in a heartbeat. I know my job was fairly small but when we are ready to update our landscaping I will be calling again.”


“Madrone Landscape took an otherwise bare and uninteresting area and turned it into a spectacular outdoor living space. We’ve had so many compliments about the design, and we couldn’t be happier.“From design to implementation right through until the last plant went in the ground, they were responsive to all our questions and concerns, going the extra mile to make sure everything turned out just as we had hoped. We’re looking forward to working with them again when we do additional landscaping.”

-Paul and Paula

“Thank you again for the GREAT job you did on our backyard/pond area. We love it!! And it’s just what we wanted. Everything is fine and the plants are already growing. We’ve gotten so many nice comments from family and friends.”

-Dona and Janis

“When we built a new house in Templeton, Madrone built the hardscape and planted the yard our architect designed, and has continued to maintain it. They have done an outstanding job, beginning with the artistic placement of boulders and the graceful arrangement of lighting. The garden has been growing in for about 6 months now (since spring of 2013), and it has been a continuing pleasure to see the succession of beautiful colors and the gradual filling in of beds. The few unsuccessful plants have been quickly replaced, and maintenance has been sensitive in making adjustments. We find the staff invariably responsive, knowledgeable, and generous with their time and advice. With Madrone’s help, we have also recently installed a rainwater catchment system.”

-Paul and Sonja

“We chose Madrone because they are local and have a great reputation. Their talented team was a perfect match for us and our project. When we went through the design process, Madrone’s team literally took what was in my brain and put it on paper. They continued the process of creating our backyard with such personalized service. Madrone truly cared about us and our project. We are super happy with their work and love our beautiful backyard. They were responsive, patient, and truly listened to our vision. Plus, they never let it bother them that I would watch the process and ask questions about certain plants or how they were doing certain things. They were wonderful in answering my questions. I could tell they were striving to help me understand what they were doing. We will be doing a second phase, with Madrone absolutely being our go-to team and the company we want to work with.”
