About Our Company

Since our inception in 1990, we have honed an innovative artistic approach to creating outdoor living environments that will significantly increase the value of your property, and more importantly, the quality of your life.

We create the art you live within. We view landscape as an interactive, multidimensional, living art form. It should be unique, stimulating setting that engages the senses, sparks your imagination, and renews your spirit. Your landscape should have a timeless beauty that allows you to transcend the day-to-day, and greatly enhance your quality of life. We want you to awake in the morning with a desire to race outside to your own personal oasis.

Hi Karen, please let Jake know that the guys were here yesterday and they did a wonderful job on the driveway, especially given this heat. We are really pleased with how everything came out and we appreciate the follow through on getting things done.
Thanks to both of you for all your help,

I had a chance to meet with the crew that does the maintenance on our landscaping this morning.  We are here seasonally and don’t get a chance to talk to your workers very often.  Your crew remembered what I had mentioned to them last Spring about how far our lot extended.  They hadn’t realized how large an area it was.  So he wanted to know if every thing was satisfactory.  I did see the difference in how much better that area, as well as the rest of the yard looked.  So I just wanted to let you know that your crew is doing a nice job on our yard, and were very courteous and helpful this morning.

“The first word that pops into my head is ‘magnificent.’ Everything has a reason and a place and a purpose,” says Laurie, who adds that neighbors often thank them for beautifying the neighborhood. Brian agrees. “We wanted our yard to look like it was a natural, established landscape, not a newly completed project. Chad’s design gives you the feeling of a very mature property even though so many things are brand new.”

Kay Case

The two men you sent here to fix the irrigation system were exceptionally good at their job. I was especially impressed because they suggested on their own some improvements I could make for more efficient watering.  I hope you acknowledge them! They are good for your company.

“Coming from Chicago, to be able to use our outdoor areas year-round is a real treat,” Jay says. “I travel extensively, and when I come home I feel like I am on vacation here. It makes the grind worth it.”

Dominique and George Perrin

We hired Dessert Foothills to redesign our front, side and back yard. We could not have been more pleased with the work. Adrian Javalera who did the design and supervised the crew is a pleasure to work with and the guys who did the heavy work were eager to please. We also hired them for weekly maintenance and have been very happy with their work. I highly recommend this company

“Jake and the team at Desert Foothills Landscape surpassed our expectations on our landscape re-design, making the home we purchased truly feel like ours! Jake quickly grasped our vision for the re-design complimenting it with many of his own conceptions, resulting in a stunning finished product.”

“We switched all lighting to energy-efficient LED bulbs or fixtures, and programmable timers keep everything in sync,” comments the husband.

“Even when we weren’t exactly sure what we wanted, Marc listened and was able to incorporate our ideas,” she says happily.

We are very happy with our maintenance team.  Gerrado and his team are doing a great job bi-weekly on our yard.  We have had many landscape companies in our 17 years in AZ, and they are the best!

“Mark Wdowiak values collaboration, so we were involved as the project evolved,” comments Chris. “He has great communication with his crew, and we experienced no headaches with this renovation. In fact, I tell friends that I was happy to write him a check.”

Susan Gauss

Not really sure I have the words to express my gratitude to your crew who have turned our yard into something so special.  It has been such fun for me to watch the day to day workings of a yard transformation – it is like a well directed stage play.  Most importantly is the team – they have been a joy to watch as they work together, have been so kind to me, and have honored EVERY request I made or answered any question, and leave the worksite tidy and neat.  You should be so proud of them all.

Whether I am soaking in the tub, sitting at my desk in the bedroom, sorting out a meal at the kitchen window, or passing thru the living room – you and your talented crew have made our yard another stunning room to enjoy from every angle. 

With heartfelt appreciation and thanks,

Suzie

Jaye Perricone

“Another outstanding experience with Desert Foothills Landscape! Chad designed two new areas around our home, after a remodel, and arranged for “touch ups” in the backyard. The team executed the plan beautifully, and on time. They worked hard, checked in if there was a question, and had a supervisor on site every day to be sure the project was on track. This is our 3rd design project with Chad, and once again, we were very happy with experience and the results. We also use DFL for our weekly landscape maintenance, and are very pleased with their responsiveness, and the overall quality of their work.”

Homeowner – Featured in Phoenix Home & Garden – Creating Harmony Through Contrast

“The house flows incredibly well together,” says the owner. “But what really does it for me is the sight when I’m sitting on the patio at sunset with the lights of the Valley glowing below and planes from Scottsdale Airport flying above. It’s moments like these that make me appreciate the home—and all the hard work that went into it—even more.”

“We went to Hawaii, they installed the landscape, and the first thing we said when we returned home was ‘Wow!’” says Mark Fisher.

“Each plant is a piece of art itself, and with Mark Wdowiak’s help, we have been able to curate an ever-changing show,” says Jay.

“Every window is a vignette to the outside,” Dale notes. “There isn’t a room in the house that you don’t look out and see a great garden.”
