Hello! This is where we will share photos of some of our landscape design projects located throughout California. Deeter Buckner Design LLC and The Plant Man are based in San Diego, CA.

Our design/build team consists of Michael Buckner, aka The Plant Man, Jenise (Deeter) Buckner, and Conrad Scouton, our hardscape specialist, general contractor and builder (of whatever you need, newly built or remodeled). License #946212.

Design Phases: Consultation, Site Plan, Concept Plan, Installation and Build.

Our design work enhances the outdoor living space by promoting unique, expressive, drought tolerant and sustainable landscapes. The landscape designs reflect the client's personal narrative...their visions, dreams, and expectations throughout the processes.

A 'constant' in our design process is to be 'Nature' sensitive. Our objective is to bring 'Nature' into the design, to include the natural qualities inherent to Southern California and it’s ‘micro climates’- its native rocks, its changing elevations, the unique climates of its canyons, beaches, & interior desert environments.

My Recent 'landscape revision design & installation' project in Kensington

Photo taken just after 'revision' work completed and after first good watering of the garden.  I'll add some 'before' & 'after' photos soon.  In the end the overall project (revision of the existing landscape and installation of new materials) created a uniquely beautiful, water-wise and sustainable front garden in Kensington.  The owners are delighted with the results as was I!

This image the reveals the new front area walkway w/ boulders installed on both sides of the path and smaller colorful rock inlaid around new & colorful Echeveria to go with the beautiful Plumeria which was already in bloom.  

Note here: a thorough watering of the new garden 'still in progress' in this early shot.  The project included re-locating many of the existing plants to more advantageous locations, installation of new boulders, colorful beach pebble stone, and decorative gravel mulch.  Plus, the trees and shrubbery were pruned to create definition and add movement and complimentary shapes to the overall composition.
