While describing locations or items as ‘jewels’ is an overdone method of advertising their value, every once in a while you find something that is worthy of the monicker. The neighborhood of La Jolla, located in the northwestern reaches of San Diego, is one such community.
Ranging from a rugged coastline to rolling hills covered in vibrant coastal scrub and dotted with outcroppings of dusty sandstone, the natural beauty of the area is only matched by the manmade landscapes cresting the hillsides. Expansive gardens and yard spaces comprised of everything from local flora to vivacious tropical greenery are a typical sight walking down nearly every neighborhood street in the area, along with an inviting floral scent drifting in the breeze.
The locals take pride in the curation of these manmade landscapes, and seem to compete with one another in how intricate and lavish they can make their outdoor environments. Some of the best landscape companies in the country have their bases of operation within the confines of the neighborhood, creating luscious grottos and chateau-esque grounds for the satisfaction of the residents.
Some of the most impressive work we saw during a recent tour was revealed to have come from a single company, which was introduced as ‘TP Landscape Company‘. When we looked it up later, we realized that was short for Torrey Pines Landscape Company, named after a pine tree that originated here in the coastal reaches of southern California.
We also discovered they had an impressive following on social media, as demonstrated in their unanimous 5-star rating wherever we looked. Here’s a sample:

If you want the best this is the company to use.
When we met the owner Harry, we immediately felt very comfortable working with him and his team.
He is extremely knowledgeable, many years of experience, passionate and has a great personality. We had a lot of fun working with him. His team is top-notch. Lei, his Architectural designer and John, his Supervisor were excellent.
Always available, very professional, and dedicated.
It was impressive to watch how hard and efficient his crews worked. They were always accommodating and helpful.
Harry and his team have high standards and want the customer to be happy.
We at all times were welcome to share in choices and decisions. So ultimately, we now love our new courtyard, hardscape, landscape and driveway.
We enjoyed the journey and are thrilled with the results. It filled our expectations and more.
We are so pleased with the “re-boot” of our landscape and extremely happy that we chose TP Landscape to plan & design and then execute on that plan. We also decided to stay with them for our weekly maintenance as well. We couldn’t be happier with the level of detailed planning, support and responsiveness we received throughout the 3 month process and the professionalism exhibited by the entire staff!! Thanks Harry and team….it looks even better now three months later!!Jim L. – Yelp Review
