We at Buildcal Landscape strongly believe adding as many plants as possible to a project will increase quality of living for humans and wildlife. Since the beginning, plants have furnished us with two of life’s essentials, food and oxygen. Their value continues to increase and more benefits of trees and plants are being discovered as their role expands to satisfy the needs created by our modern lifestyles.
Plants can offer shade for your home and lawn enjoyable during the summer heat, as well as a barrier against cold winter winds. They also filter water and air to reduce soil erosion and greenhouse gases.
We work closely with a few high quality local growers to deliver the best to our clients and gladly take part of the ecological change plants provide.
Grass helps improve air quality by taking carbon dioxide and increasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Grass is not only a great pollution filter, but it is also effective in reducing noise pollution. It is a great tool in stormwater management and environmental heating. Green spaces have also been shown to improve wellness and reduce stress.
Buildcal Landscape provides quality workmanship in installing your grass to increase community appeal and improve property values.
Drip irrigation is a type of micro-irrigation system that has the potential to save water and nutrients by allowing water to drip slowly. The goal is to place water directly to the source and minimize evaporation.
A smart timer allows you to control your irrigation system any where any time. It allows you to set up schedules, see a watering calendar, and turn your sprinklers on or off with the push of a button.
A rain sensor is a great addition to your automatic irrigation system. They are designed to override and shut off your system when your landscape has received enough rainfall.
Buildcal Landscape provides efficient irrigation systems to keep your landscape lush green all year round. We provide a variety of irrigation systems to increase the efficiency of watering your lawn, plants, and trees without wasting water and money.
Landscape designers may provide design ideas, landscape plans, planting plans and lighting plans. Some also offer installation-related services such as material selection or plant placement. While they may provide conceptual ideas on garden structures, irrigation, and hardscape layout, most are not licensed to provide construction drawings. Likewise, while they may work closely with contractors overseeing the aesthetic elements of an installation, most are not licensed to provide actual construction services. Their education is in residential design, which emphasizes design strategies, hardscape options, and plant materials appropriate for residential projects.
Landscape architects are licensed by the State of California and, in addition to the plans typically provided by a landscape designer, are qualified to produce construction-ready plans that may include complex retaining walls, grading and drainage plans, and physical structures. Their training emphasizes design for large public and commercial spaces such as parks and commercial landscapes, although some specialize in residential projects.
Landscape contractors are licensed to install the designs created by landscape designers and landscape architects. Some are design/build companies, and provide design and maintenance services as well. When working with a design/build firm, be sure to clarify the design process used and whether you will receive landscape drawings for your review and approval or just a verbal or written description of the landscape to be installed. Some design/build companies bundle the design fees with the cost of construction, but it is still important to understand the design cost component should you decide to hire a different company for installation.
