David Michael Frantz

David Michael Frantz, Landscape Professional

I am a dedicated landscape professional with over 30 years experience creating and maintaining beautiful landscapes in Santa Barbara County.  I am passionate about doing work that not only enhances the local site but is good for the environment and our collective quality of life.  My approach to landscaping is creating optimal beauty with minimal maintenance. "A well designed garden shouldn’t require legions of workers."

I love to use native and mediterranean plants, to utilize rainwater on site, and to build soil health with compost, mulch and organic fertilizers.  I am opposed to using poisons and herbicides whenever possible. I love being part of the process of nature, mimicking its sheer beauty and resilience in the constructed landscape.

I recognize that building relationships with clients, growers, suppliers, architects, fellow contractors and my employees is a fundamental key to success and longevity in our tight-knit community.  I strive to go that extra mile to meet my clients’  needs  even when the rewards aren’t monetary.  I call this the “feel good” technique. It gives me great satisfaction to do beautiful, ecological and affordable work, and I look forward to working together.
