"Montecito Landscape is a design & build landscape design firm in Santa Barbara County. For over 50 years, Chris and Lisa Cullen, owners of Montecito Landscape have been creating beautiful gardens in Santa Barbara, Montecito, Malibu and beyond.
We admit we are a bit old-fashioned, we don't hire salespeople, or designers and when you call for a FREE Home Garden Consultation (805-969-3984) you get us, the owners. We are not “trending” on social media, we like talking to people face to face.
Is that an outdated way of doing business? Possibly, but we are NOT trying to compete with the Big Boys or trying to get a TV show. We do it this way because, for us, nothing is more fun than visiting people's gardens, getting to know them, and envisioning how to take their landscape from ordinary to extraordinary. Life is about the journey, and for us, this is our journey. The earth is our canvas and landscape design is our passion.
It may sound corny, but we help people. When we create a more beautiful, more usable landscape and outdoor living environment for our clients we are enhancing their quality of life and giving them a little peace of mind, enjoyment, appreciation of nature, and joy.
Yes, we can tell you that as design/build contractors we design and install landscapes with our own crew of highly skilled artisans. Yes, Chris is a trained horticulturist and arborist, having graduated from the Sarasota Horticulture Foundation and after over 50 years as a licensed contractor, he KNOWS what works and what doesn't.
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 and nature. What is the Montecito Landscape difference? It’s about the joy, the joy in creating a more beautiful world one garden at a time.
