Retain and Contain (walls and edgers)
DtE is a long-standing leader in landscape planning, installation, irrigation and maintenance service in the East Bay. Since 1998, we have been in the forefront of responsible environmental practices from plant selection and irrigation design to ensuring garden health during routine service. Our excellent online reviews tell our story that we listen, get the job done on time and on budget, we're easy to work with and we create beautiful and functional landscapes, far beyond what was imagined. Our beloved workers and managers have been with the company for many years, their skill and work ethic puts us above and beyond the rest.
DtE is owned and operated by me, Jesica Goldhammer-Zebouah. I'm a landscape contractor, writer, Los Angeles native, Cal Berkeley graduate, returned Peace Corps volunteer from Honduras and Izzy's mom. I received my initial training in irrigation, landscape construction, lighting, plant design and soil science from several leading landscaping firms and the Landscape Horticulture department at Merritt College. Our first clients called us down-to-earth, so that's what I named the company. 2023 marks our 25th year in business, I'm so grateful for all of it!
It's been a year since Down to Earth finished completely re-doing our front and back yards and we couldn't be happier. Jesica the owner was very responsive to our needs and budget, communicated with us constantly and helped us solve a lot of problems we'd thought were unsolvable..... "
We are based in Crocker Highlands, Oakland, and proudly serve the communities of OAKLAND, PIEDMONT, ALAMEDA, BERKELEY and ORINDA
