I would recommend Studio H.

Is Studio H just a landscape architect or are they also a landscaper as well?  I've decided that I'm going to with a landscape architect so I can compare apples to apples when it comes to contractor bids.

I like the idea of having a pre-designed concept on blueprint and shopping it around for execution.

I can recommend George Bouyounes of BCL Inc. He is currently doing my lot. Their work is excellent. In addition he is very patient and walks the owner through every step during construction. His prices are fair, but he doesn't do designs.

If you need a landscape design, check out RMT Designs. Rosemary is the owner/designer. She has great vision and can maximize any space.

Hands down, best in the business is California Landscape Studios: https://californialandscapestudios.com

They have designed lots of impressive model home backyards (Alta Vista, Bella Vista, etc)

If you're looking for a resort at home, look no further.

I worked with California Landscape Studios on a project for one of my clients. It came out amazing!

I recommend Danny Wang Design https://www.dannywang.comas well. His landscape designs are on par with California Landscape Studios and I'm quite familiar with his work. Really awesome guy, too. If you take a look at his Instagram you'll see numerous examples of his work. You'll see he's done numerous projects in Hidden Canyon, Orchard Hills and Altair. His projects are often side by side with Justin's from California Landscape Studios. They are the two best landscape architects in Orange County and I would happily work with either of them. Good luck!

LandCreative is booked up and can't fit in into their schedule.  I have Studio H coming out tomorrow and I have reached out to Land Concern and Morton Design Group.

FYI - for the real estate beginners. The ROI on swimming pool is not that great. Also, factor in the in the maintenance and utilities.

The cost for a pool/spa are about an extra $50-75 per month for electricity and water and a pool guy will run anywhere between $80 to $100 per month.

Looks like Land Concern does not do individual residential design but who highly recommended John Hourian Associates.

The amount may vary depending pool size and usage. (Water pump/heated pool)

Some people have a pool and don’t even use it.
The amount spent on a new pool you might not get back dollar for dollar when you sell it. The areas to upgrade kitchen, bathrooms, and flooring.  ;)

Depending on zoning laws. Consider adding sq ft or adding separate residence. (Better ROI return)

Excellent. Price?

$13,275 based upon my budget of up to $175k.  That includes construction management (aka periodic progress inspections of the landscaper's work).
