I have known and worked with Scott for over 20 years. He is a true professional. He knows that I am very particular about my vision, the look, and experience that I try to create in every one of my homes or projects. Scott is adaptable, always available, prompt in responding, and always provides insight and recommendations on how to create environments that reflect the unique lifestyle of each home I create. Scott has a superb understanding of specimens, and is collaborative in trying to develop winning solutions from a cost, time and material perspective. I appreciate his patient, understanding approach to obtaining the "right" solution for me, regardless of how many iterations are required to tweak things along the way. I have always found Scott to be a pleasure to work with, which is most important in a collaborative, creative, endeavor

Mr. Scott Zucker is a well renowned Landscape Architect for good reason! His sensitive pairing of our home with a landscape design highlighted the exterior form of our home, our personalities, the home interior, and the overall Zen of the property. Every detail was delicately observed, noted, and accentuated in Mr. Zucker's design of the property. The change from a barren and middle Americana yard to a magnificent contemporary landscape, results in strangers stopping to view, and even photograph, the balanced beauty of our home and the landscape. Mr. Zucker's sensitivity, combined with not only his brilliant aesthetic eye for the hidden inner beauty of nature, but his client's true inner individuality, affirms his well deserved accolades as one of Southern California's most brilliant landscape architects!

Over the years we have had the pleasure of working with Scott on two projects. The first was a small cottage garden, the most recent a very large and complex installation for a Tuscan-style hillside home. Scott approached both with the same focus on intelligent design, cost effectiveness and customer communication. The results were magnificent. Scott is talented, organized and sets a high standards for his profession. His constant attention to detail, personal involvement and follow-up have put him on our "all star" list. If there's a third project....Scott will be one of the first calls we make.

My husband John and I hired Scott Zucker as our Landscape Architect based upon our Architect, Tim Nicol’s high recommendation. When we first met Scott and discussed our thoughts and wishes for our new home, we knew immediately that we had the right person for the job. Not only didScott’s vision match ours, his easy going personality made you feel as though you’ve known him for years.
Our home in Three Arch Bay was an old 1920’s cottage that had been added on a few times and didn’t flow well at all. The yard was beautiful with lots of roses that tapered down our steep back yard, several decks and walkways but very little useable land. We wanted to put a pool in for our kids, a fireplace and a build in TV area with a sitting area and a sand area to throw adirondack chairs around a fire pit.
Scott said he could envision the possibilities and bring it all together. Scott’s first drawings of our pool and hardscape were so exciting to see on paper and his ideas just opened up our yard and pushed the envelope of what we could accomplish with our very difficult lot. He opened up our front yard but kept the charming cottage feel that we loved when we first bought our house. The blue stone, brick and plant designs were similar to the New England style we wanted to capture. Scott also helped with the color scheme of the house and had a lot of great ideas for our designs. We didn’t need to hire a separate designer to help with our project because we had such talented professionals on our job like Scott Zucker.
Scott was instrumental in so many ways, John and I couldn’t be happier with the way our project turned out. Our friends and family love coming over and hanging out in our beautiful home.

As someone who has never retained the services of a Landscape Architect, I am very happy to testify to Scott Zucker’s professionalism, creative design, and collaboration with us to create our awesome pool and landscape design. Scott understood our desire to create an outdoor living space where the pool, loggia and yard enhanced the existing architecture of our home, topography of the rear yard and our ocean view.
Scott also had to incorporate our neighbor’s concerns and earn approval through Laguna Beach’s Design Review Committee (not an easy feat). We received Design Review Approval at our first hearing.
Scott also made sure the design was installed according to plan and answered contractors’ questions in a timely manner with no drama.
My kind of consultant!
