Landscape Design | Build | Maintain

Serving Orange County since 1990.

paradise, n. a place of ideal beauty, peace, delight, bliss

Brothers Tom and Jeff Garton chose the name for their company inspired by the beauty of their natural surroundings in the local communities of San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano and Dana Point. They started their company in a Dana Point garage in 1990. One a USC educated architectural designer, the other a business savvy younger brother who had been rising up the corporate ladder. Their motivation centered around family life and building beautiful landscapes where their clients could make shared memories with their own families and friends.

Since those humble beginnings, they have built a team of creative landscape designers, experienced supervisors, project coordinators, detail oriented crews and courteous customer service personnel.

“Our goal is to simplify the process for our clients with our Design-Build approach. By having the capabilities to communicate directly with our in-house crews, we provide a seamless and effective process by which we achieve customer satisfaction.”
