"Rebecca did a fabulous job making our backyard into a beautiful place, full of native plants and flowers. Plus, our water bill has decreased dramatically! She was always willing to work with us to make sure we got what we wanted: a great look, within our budget, expertly done, friendly, and reliable. We've referred our friends to her and heard similar feedback. We highly recommend her!"

"Rebecca and her team were fantastic. She is on cutting edge of affordable California native landscapes. I highly recommend her business, California Nativescapes, for design, advise and the magic of turning a 60's dingy landscape into a little bit of California paradise."

"We had nice enough lawns. Now, we have a beautiful low-water landscape of native plants. In ten months since installation, the plants have burst out with a variety of textures and colors. There are berms, a small meadow of wild flowers and a hand-laid rock wall that surrounds a mound of forest-floor ferns. Rebecca was creative and easy to work with. We are very pleased with the results."
