Hello and welcome to C F LANDSCAPING and CONSTRUCTION, the finest in the land !
VEGAN / ENVIRONMENTAL LANDSCAPING, and CONSTRUCTION.
Were a westside company based in Santa Monica, and Topanga, California and service the greater Los Angeles area. We cover most everything under Landscaping and Construction, including Edible Landscaping, Retaining Walls, Decks, Additions, Home Remodeling, Patios, Pathways, Hardscape, Fencing, Carpentry ( Int/Ext. ) Painting, Fountains, Ponds, All Concrete installation, Tree Service, Brush Clearing, Old Fashioned Gardening, Botanical gardens complete with waterfall, and more. Some info on these are on our photo pages below.
Our specialty ! We make wide varieties of various walls, for example we use the finest pressure treated 6 by 6 timbers as they are superior to concrete walls, as concrete walls tend to shatter and get small fractures over time due to tremors in the earth, timber walls absorb tremors, we also construct Super Adobe walls, walls made with Railroad Ties , Versa-lok, Gabion, Stone and walls made with large Boulders too, allthough we can make concrete walls if thats what you prefer. Info on these walls is on our photo pages below, just imagine having a colonial styled rock wall set with mortar and river rocks to boost the sale value of your home.
Our crew is a group of dedicated ENVIRONMENTALISTS and VEGANS/VEGETARIANS, we care about the environment our health and yours too.
We specialize in EDIBLE LANDSCAPING, wherein fruits, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers are planted in your yard, so everything is completely edible, see that page below. Too many lawns in this country are used just to show off large green lawns which wastes 1000's of gallons of water each year ! Why not utilize your yard space to grow your own food, thus helping the environment and saving money on groceries in the long run. We use only natural pesticides, nothing harmful to plants or the soil. We also use techniques as known within permaculture and organic gardening.
We can install LIVING FENCES which are better for the environment in the long run, just imagine a fence made entirely of living Juniper trees with lots of foliage, the foliage makes a natural screen and can be shaped into hedges if you like. We can do the same with bamboo.
Carpentry - we cover all int/ext work on all woodwork including decks, custom built shelves, railings, fencing, even children's playhouses.
Custom built Decks and Patios - Interlocking and random patterns, flagstone, poured concrete, etc. We'll consider all offers and give you an affordable rate lower than our competition. We also do ground cover, fertilize, seed, and cover stump removal, and can make sure your landscape stays healthy all year round.
We have many boulders, rocks, of various shape and sizes, some are beige/grey, others have quartz crystal on them, largest range to about 2 and a half ft accross, they can be used for a variety of purposes; Ret. walls, ponds, pathways, etc. aside from just utilizing them for landscape appeal and boosting the sale value. You can even have them placed in front of your home to use as obstacles and barriers to protect your home from cars moving fast late at night and losing control and hitting your home. See pages 7 and 8 for various photos of some of our boulders. Some folks even buy "Rock Families" to represent the number of people living inside their home and the rocks could reflect each person's personality if you like.
Most green lawns in the country waste millions of gallons of water a year and mostly go unused, instead of another green lawn, how about having a rock garden intalled on your property; clusters of boulders with plants that require little water such as agave, aloe, cactus and jade. Accent with gravel, decomposed granite or perhaps a flagtone pathway, the posssibilities are unlimited. We have installed several of these dry weather landscapes throughout the city.
Offering complete concrete cutting, demo and installation. Instead of basic poured concrete go for a high end look with concrete pavers which are set upon a bed of crushed gravel and sand, these are ideal for patios, pathways, and driveways. We also offer decorative concrete, acid stain, and stamped concrete as well.
For your landscaping project you can choose from symetrical as well as non-symetrical landscape patterns for your yard, there is no limit as to what we can do for you. We can boost the sale value of your home by 1000's of dollars for just a small investment.
Our crew members also have lots of expierence in painting; interior, exterior, rooms, apts. houses, etc. We also cover Murals, Stencil Design, Faux Finishing - Venetian, Marble, and several other styles, we have had a great female painting crew for the past few years since the summer of 2011, and we have a few guys who work just as hard, let us paint your home with a rainbow of colors today.
