Our Philosophy & Services

After thirty-five years and hundreds of projects on the San Francisco Peninsula, Metamorphosis Landscaping enjoys a hard-earned reputation for our unique, tailored designs, capability from conceptual design to final construction, superior materials and workmanship, and exceptional service. Most of all, we are proud of the personal attention we provide each client during every phase of our work, and of our ability to enhance the areas and ways our clients can more fully experience their home environments.


Metamorphosis uses only high-quality materials from vendors that are leaders in their industries, including Rain Bird sprinkler systems, Proven Winners plants, Hot Spring Spas and Vista Landscape Lighting. We have long-standing relationships with a select network of highly regarded experts in their fields of masonry, structural engineering, soil engineering, drainage, and outdoor lighting and landscape amenities. Together, our team can craft specific elements of your unique design and resolve any structural issues you may face. Let us create a stunningly beautiful and structurally sound environment that is distinctly yours to experience and enjoy.

Computerized design services ease the planning process for both clients and the designer. While in the design phase, they ease the ability to modify the plan rather than start over from the beginning. During construction, the computerized blueprint provides the crew with more accurate construction data than a hand-drawing which helps keep costs down and misunderstandings to a minimum to keep the project on its timeline.


Our quality construction service turns the ‘dream’ of the design into reality. We employ proprietary construction practices and techniques with the same attention to detail that was given the design.
