We build projects of our own design, those produced by an architect, or your own creations. The range of landscape elements we construct include patios and decks; fences; retaining walls and terraces; pergolas/arbors/trellises; paths; sitting areas; stairs; raised beds/planter boxes; fire pits; lighting systems; and drip and sprinkler irrigation systems.
Our planting approach covers a wide variety of styles but we emphasize the creation of plant communities in which plants are chosen based both on your aesthetic and functional needs along with what is appropriate to the site. We are most passionate about reviving the use of California natives and the establishment of “Bay-friendly” spaces which feature the use of native and/or Mediterranean low-maintenance, low-water plants that are regionally appropriate and environmentally conscious.
Mazingira’s ecological philosophy guides us to incorporate existing land contours and flora when possible. Our staff brings many years of landscaping and gardening experience with significant plant and soil expertise in addition to strengths in carpentry, irrigation systems, and stone work.
