For over 45 years, Chris and Lisa Cullen, owners of Montecito Landscape have been creating beautiful gardens in Santa Barbara, Montecito, Malibu and beyond. The earth is our canvas and landscape design is our passion. We bring the unique character of Montecito to life in every garden. As design/build contractors, we design and install landscapes with our own crew of highly skilled artisans. Call for a Free Home Garden Consultation, where we assess your property's assets and incorporate those assets when designing the landscape. Chris is a trained arborist and graduated from the Sarasota Horticulture Foundation. He has the ability to see what others don't because he takes in the entire space when envisioning a property's potential and with his 45+ years as a contractor, he knows what works. But in the end, we are designing for our clients, for you. A landscape, a garden is a place to experience, enjoy and celebrate the beauty of outdoor living. We call that filling your garden with joy. We look forward to meeting you. Lisa Cullen

My design philosophy is that every garden needs to be beautiful, useful and sustainable. My work has included hundreds of gardens in the greater Santa Barbara, Goleta, Montecito and Ventura area since the late 1970s while also helping to educate the public through adult education, master gardener and college classes. Gardens range in style from sleek, lean contemporary style, to Old World traditional, Mediterranean, and uniquely eclectic gardens perfectly suited to the individual client. Range of services from simplest to more involved: • One-time consultation to stimulate new ideas and introduce a more sustainable approach. • Planting design quick sketches and generating plant lists for owners to select from on their own. • Guided plant shopping trips, wholesale purchasing and final placement • Site planning and planting design drawings for installation by owner or contractor Typical clients include those with “tired” existing landscapes in need of a planting facelift and those seeking to re-imagine their outdoor spaces. With the ongoing concern for water savings, many projects include lawn removal and replacement with water-conserving gardens and creating new spaces for outdoor living. I also provide garden “staging” services for clients preparing to put their house up for sale. Many clients have on-going “works in progress” where we start with a general master plan and gradually tackle sections of their yard to achieve a coherent finished product.

Charles McClure grew up in Southern California in the 60s and 70s. When he was young, his family hired a landscape architect to design their residential grounds that included indoor/outdoor patio living and swimming. He spent many hours at the famous Descanso and Huntington Gardens. His mother introduced him to the concept that some outdoor spaces are actually designed by people and that often makes them much more enjoyable live in and look at. McClure went on to study at Cal Poly SLO, receiving a BS in Landscape Architecture and he was the first in his class to obtain licensure in 1989. He has worked in Beverly Hills, Palm Springs, Westlake Village and Santa Barbara. When we refer to landscape, we are referring to outdoor space and all of the elements contained in it, not just plantings. The landscape architect is responsible for the well being of everyone who enters his designed spaces. Elements are selected with this in mind. Vertical elements can excite, horizontals calm. Color draws attention. Ever consider why the Japanese garden is associated with calm and relaxation? It's because these gardens are filled with horizontal lines, some cut into the tree canopies, and color is limited or non existent. Interest is gained by contrasting shades of green together as well as varying textures. Water is used in a very natural way. Contrast that with a Las Vegas-style fountain. It is fascinating to consider that design has the power to effect people’s lives so profoundly.When we refer to landscape, we are referring to outdoor space and all of the elements contained in it, not just plantings.

Hello! I am Natasha the owner of Sweet Smiling Landscapes. All my life I have had an equal attraction to art and design as well as horticulture leading me to a career in landscape design. While undergoing my course work for a BFA in sculpture at California State University Long Beach, I found constant themes in my work were the human relationship with the outdoor world. I found myself particularly interested in how humans have worked with nature to create a built world outside in the forms of farms and gardens. So, after graduation I followed my interests. I studied permaculture, and then horticulture at Santa Barbara City college (where I now teach Landscape Drafting). I am an EPA-certified Water Wise designer, certified permaculture designer, and certified Green Gardener. Today use my skills as an artist and my knowledge of horticulture to create beautiful, functional and sustainable outdoor spaces. Sweet Smiling Landscapes create outdoor spaces that are as artful as they are ecologically sound. Sustainable landscape design is an opportunity to create gardens that are living pieces of art that serve to improve the local ecology. I am committed to designing gardens that are water-wise and fire-wise. My designs carefully consider ways to blend the wants and needs of my clients with the specifications of their property in each project I undertake. Bringing together the elements of sustainability and natural aesthetics, I design beautiful spaces to allow my clients to fully enjoy the outdoor areas of their home.

Lynn founded Lynn C. Johnson Associates in 1986. Once Lynn took her first horticulture class at UC Davis, she fell in love with plants. The combination of working with plants and designing outdoor spaces provided the perfect creative outlet and career opportunity for Lynn - landscape architecture. Lynn starts the conceptual design process by taking existing site plans and meeting with the client to gather the most information possible. From there, she begins with loose sketches of designs and ideas. She takes a collaborative approach and presents initial sketches to her clients - sometimes a few times - taking what they like or don't like and making changes. Once she and her client arrive at a design, Lynn finalizes the conceptual landscape plan. From there, she creates the construction documents, which may include a planting plan that specifies the quantity, size, and type of every plant, an irrigation plan, a lighting plan, a hardscape plan, construction details which can include walkways, fences, gates, pools, outdoor kitchens, patios, fireplaces; and details and specifications. Lynn will refer contractors and partake in project administration to ensure that last minute changes are made and quality is maintained. Lynn loves the creative process and the opportunity to develop spaces that have a positive effect on people. She has special training in therapeutic garden design so that she can help clients find tranquility, healing, or whatever they need in their new garden spaces. Ultimately, Lynn wants her clients to be happy and proud of their new spaces.
