San Diego Landscape & Horticulture Consultant

Where Aesthetics Meets Eco-Friendliness

RDCS provides a variety of landscape and horticultural consulting services. Founder Jeremy Rappoport is a licensed C-27 California landscape contractor, (consultant only), and professional horticulturist.

Finding the perfect plant or tree is a difficult but important process. Through a careful study of horticulture and arboriculture, RDCS provides you with an understanding of specific plant growth characteristics and environmental requirements.  This enables you to create an aesthetically pleasing landscape garden that is compatible with the physical and environmental needs of each individual plant.

Many property owner’s simply let a landscape contractor design and install their landscape, not caring about the plants, soil, irrigation or specifications, not realizing the potential conflict of interest using the contractor as designer, purchaser and installer.

If you are a discerning, aesthetically oriented property owner, consider using a professional horticulturist, arborist and consulting landscape contractor to enhance and protect your living investment.  Learn the benefits of horticultural design, call Jeremy today.  858-205-4748.

Consultant Services:

What does horticultural design entail?

  • We evaluate environmental factors, such as wind, sun and shade, soil structure, pH, soil fertility, drainage, and micro-climates all of which play a big part in the success of your landscape project.
  • We assess the existing site, structures, access pathways, recreational area and other site-specific features. Working closely with the client, we design a landscape garden that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and sustainable.
  • We recommend plant materials compatible with the site, constraints and environment. Calculating for size at full maturity and site conditions will help ensure that the plant material flourishes and does not become a future problem.
  • Irrigation plays a major role in the survival of your plants. By utilizing new irrigation technologies, we help you reduce your monthly water bills while creating, protecting and enhancing your landscape investment.

Wholesale Direct Plant Purchasing

Rather than view pictures of plants or accept contractor provided plants at marked up prices, RDCS offers clients the opportunity to access local wholesale growers to view and select plant material suitable for their landscape garden.

Clients love the RDCS approach because they are able select the healthiest, most robust plants suitable for their garden and purchase plant material directly from wholesale nurseries avoiding contractor or retail nursery markups.

Landscape Project and Construction Management

RDCS consults as a project manger and owner liaison with the landscape contractor and other trades, assisting the client with design, budgeting, material purchasing, permitting and scheduling issues. RDCS protects the client’s best interests through contractor supervision, monitoring and the inspection process.

Landscape Construction and Maintenance Trouble Shooting

RDCS consults on underperforming landscape projects and declining plant material.  Whether the issue is construction or maintenance related, we inspect, assess and determine the cause and make recommendations for immediate solutions.
