Quercus is a design & build firm, specializing in California native plant based landscapes in the Southern Sierra, southern Central Valley and inland California.  We can design and install a unique climate-right garden that meets your goals. We can also create complete build/ready scaled site plans for DIY’ers, or we can project manage or provide advice and recommendations as an hourly consultation.  We grow many of our own plants, from California and from all over the world and, where necessary, work with growers state-wide to get the best plants for your project. We also provide superior maintenance service, specializing in California native and similar great gardens.
