Succulent garden maintenance referrals

Succulent Garden Professionals: Referrals

Need help? Scroll down to the comments for reader referrals, by area

Do you know someone skilled in succulent garden design, installation and/or maintenance whom you've worked with and really like? Leave a recommendation here on my Referrals page. (Scroll down to the Comments.) And if you provide succulent garden design, maintenance and/or installation yourself, tell us!

Help me connect professionals with homeowners to make this a great resource page. I'm counting on YOU!

Below: This is why people need succulent gardening professionals. The agave (no doubt quite small at the time) shouldn't have been planted in that location in the first place...and now it needs to be removed.

Succulent garden maintenance done badly

IMHO this sad, mutilated agave and its pups should be put out of their misery. 

Overwhelmed? Get Hands-On Help

I sympathize! Consider hiring someone skilled at aspects of succulent gardening that are beyond you. A professional versed in the succulent scene will know ways to save you money on plants and materials; and can point out potential problems (like that century plant pup too close to a sidewalk, above).

        Hello Kathryn,
        Unfortunately, I am not familiar with anyone in the Sacramento area who designs with and maintains succulent gardens. I am familiar with and have met a gentleman who resides in Davis who is a succulent aficionado who also has a BLOG dedicated to succulents and more, Gerhard Bock. If you contact him via his BLOG he might know of someone in your area:
        Another suggestion is to visit nurseries that have a focus on succulents and ask if they have any recommendations, such as:

    San Gabriel Valley / Phil Stillwell /

    Hello Debra, I am currently a licensed general contractor in the San Gabriel Valley. I am not a landscape contractor but have been considering starting a cactus and succulent landscape business here to service this very niche. I have several years of experience in my own yard and several other small side projects using cactus, succulents, low water gardening and landscape. Could you recommend any reading or other resources on starting and running such a business? Really enjoy your blog and Thanks for your help!

    • Debra Lee Baldwin on March 8, 2020 at 6:29 pm

      Hi Phil — What a great question!

      Anyone who wants to start a business like you describe obviously needs a good working knowledge of cacti and succulents, and how individual varieties and ornamental companion plants thrive or struggle in a specific region. The San Gabriel Valley seems ideal, and not many landscapers there specialize in succulents. Unless I’m out of the loop, it seems the market is wide open.

    EAST BAY San Francisco: Does anyone know how large roots grow on a very mature three trunked Euphorbia Ingens (at least that is what it looks like per the photos). It has grown to maybe 40 feet now. I have googled everywhere but no info on how large the roots get. I have a loose brick walkway between the house front door and the tree which is now pushing the bricks up so they no longer lay flat creating a danger to walk to the front door.. Seems to be growing towards the water faucet on the side of the house. I want to have the root cut off and a barrier placed on the cut end of the root so it will grow the other direction instead of straight out. I will have to have the tree trimmed back a lot so it does not fall over on my roof and maybe even have metal rope with anchors to support it as I am in a gusty windy area. Does anyone know a service professional that who knows anything about the way to do this so it won’t fall over. It is such a stunning tree, looks like a giant cactus tree but it has the flowers and wooden buds like the Euphorbia tree after much research. The property is in the San Francisco North East Bay area.

    • Debra Lee Baldwin on August 25, 2021 at 1:07 pm

      Hi Deb — Sounds like a classic case of the right plant in the wrong place. IMHO, this situation isn’t going to get better. Fortunately when you remove a large euphorbia or cactus, it’s easy to replant elsewhere, although you may have to cut it up in order to handle it. Do be cautious of the milky, latex sap. See my post on pruning and removing euphorbias:

  32. Kara on September 3, 2021 at 10:07 am

    I’m not a fan of succulents but, they are nice to be in the garden. Local landscape gardeners know how to take care of them much better hire someone to take care of the succulents.

    • Debra Lee Baldwin on September 3, 2021 at 2:40 pm

      Hi Kara — Thank you for your comment. I see you’re in England. I’m afraid I don’t quite understand your point. Would you kindly clarify?

      • Kara on September 14, 2021 at 9:14 am

        Hello Debra, My apology for the confusion, what I meant is that succulents are nice to put in the garden but if someone is didn’t know how to take good care of them, then ask help from the local landscape gardeners.

    I recently moved to Santa Rosa, CA, from Iowa. Immediately, I took out the sod in my front yard along with the boxwoods and roses. We simply don’t have the available water to sustain the old landscape. But now, I’m stuck. I haven’t gardened with succulents before. Do you have any professional recommendations of a landscaper/designer in my area?

    Thank you,

    • Tim Wheeler on April 3, 2022 at 2:10 pm

      Hi Becky,

      I can’t recommend a gardener for you since I’m way down in the Inland Empire. But about 12 years ago I was on the same track you are now–removing the grass from my front yard and starting over with a xeric landscape. Here is a Los Angeles Times story (June 2, 2018) with photos describing how I did it . I hope it helps. But definitely get some professional guidance in your area before you start planting.

    I live in Laguna Beach and have completely transitioned to Succulents, Cactus, and other lower water plants. Pulled out all my grass and so no mowing required. My garden is throwing off pups and becoming overgrown so I need a gardener that specializes in maintaining a clean maintained succulent / cactus garden.
    Does anyone know of a gardener in the Laguna Beach / So. OC area that could become my regular maintenance gardener?

    My succulent garden is a third completed but my designer up and quit on me today! (He was often a no show, unreliable and unprofessional, so it’s all for the best.) Now I’m looking for a new designer/installer who is artistic and understands succulents!

    We also will need help planning a second succulent garden in our backyard where our lawn once was.

    Ask for Ann
