Happy Two Year Anniversary!


Since joining in 2012, Stacy Dedrick has made a positive impact on our Irrigation Department. We would like to congratulate him on his promotion from Irrigation Technician to Irrigation Manager this past year. In Stacy's words, "My time working at Landesign has made me grow as a person and manage to help the success of the company. I am very grateful for the opportunity."


Stacy is a native to Sonoma County and has enjoyed being involved in landsape irrigation for over 18 years. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his children, power lifting on the United States team, and being a busy bee!

 5 Tips for Winter Tree Care


Winter is upon us, and now is the time to take the necessary steps to prepare your trees. Landesign can help, request a tree inspection here!


1. Pruning- Winter is the best time to prune. During the winter months, plant material enters a state of dormancy where it can tolerate removal of dead branches more. Pruning is always more effective when done pro-actively versus reactively.


2. Mulching - Applying 2 to 4 inches of mulch just before winter helps regulate soil temperature. Young tree roots have a tendency to heave up out of the ground with continual freeze-thaw cycles. Organic mulch also helps conserve soil moisture, prevents weeds, and keeps the organic matter in the soil.


3. Inspecting - Take a look at the roots especially near the tree base for decay. Signs of cracking, swelling, and bark coming off signal a tree that may need to be removed. Insects infestation is also a sign of a failing tree.


4. Bracing for ice - Our upright evergreens are the most susceptible to ice and becoming brittle. Proper pruning of weak branches is the best defense.


5. Fertilizing - With fertilizer application, timing is everything. If applied to early, trees may start to use it too soon. November and December are the best months to be most effective in spring.



 Spotlight: Williams - Sonoma

Last minute holiday shopping? Check out your local Williams Sonoma for Landesign's landscape installation!



The original Williams-Sonoma located on Broadway Avenue in Sonoma has undergone a marvelous renovation with the help of Landesign and Oakstone Construction. Landesign completed the irrigation, planting, and decomposed granite installation along Broadway Avenue and in the courtyard. The courtyard houses thoughtfully designed out door rooms and edible gardens. Herbs planted will be used in the on site cooking school and cafe.


Jeff George Landscape Architecture and Consulting completed the site design and Oakstone Construction was the general contractor for the project. Now open, Williams-Sonoma is worth the stop to see where this local company got its roots.
