PGS Landscape specializes in residential landscape construction and commercial landscape construction & maintenance in the Santa Cruz, CA general area. A house isn't truly a home until it has a beautiful yard to go along with it. PGS recognizes this and works with its clients to design, construct, and maintain the most beautiful, efficient, and green Santa Cruz Landscapes.
PGS understands the impact inefficient utilities and landscapes can have on the environment. We make it a priority to use the most environment-friendly materials to help maintain and beautify the surrounding nature. We work hard to utilize solar technology to power water pumps, sprinklers, and even timing systems. PGS also uses best practices to use water efficiently and sparingly, to preserve our environment & water supply during this drought.

Santa Cruz Landscape ConstructionPGS Landscape specializes in landscape construction - more specifically hardscape, lawn installation, irrigation system installation, and much more. We have built many beautiful and high quality waterfalls, retaining walls, patios, outdoor kitchens, fences, benches, and ponds in the Santa Cruz area. Our expertise extends back 31 years, so you can be confident that we know what we are doing.
Waterfalls, Pools, and PondsOur personal favorite elements to implement are water features. A water feature can truly pull together a nice landscape and turn it into a beautiful and charming landscape. Our waterfalls are completely custom & unique, and we encourage you to take a look at our portfolio to see how they can enhance the look of your yard. Our waterfalls integrate seemlessly with the surrounding landscape and nature, and improve the overall appearance of your yard.
Outdoor KitchensNothing quite screams summertime like an outdoor kitchen/barbecue. Adding a kitchen to your backyard is stylish and very useful. Host a neighborhood barbecue and forget using a small, insufficient grill. Our outdoor kitchens include sinks, barbecues, fridges, and even cabinets. We typically construct these using flagstone and stained concrete; however, the options are endless. Have a real Santa cruz summer and entertain your friends and family with your new outdoor kitchen!
Santa Cruz - Keeping it Green
The overall health and beauty of the surrounding environment is a top concern for PGS. We understand the importance of the ecosystem, and integrating landscapes that are both energy efficient and non-compromising to the surrounding wildlife is very important to us. When beginning a landscape construction project, we make sure to take all steps possible to prevent the disruption of a natural habitat. We understand this may not always be an option; however, we always take this into strong consideration. In order to save water in Santa Cruz, we will often implement WBICs, or Weather-based Irrigation Controllers. These controllers are very useful as they will prevent the sprinklers from running when it is raining outdoors. Also, in many of our Santa Cruz landscapes, we will install solar panels to run low-voltage lighting or pumps for water features in order to save money on electricity.
