About Vilma DeLaCruz

I am a visionary design professional with over a decade of experience designing and overseeing the installation of new landscapes for residential and business customers.

Good landscape design adds beauty, style and functionality to outdoor spaces, is good for the environment, sustainable and offers habitat for birds, bees and butterflies.  Beautiful design also increases property value, pride of ownership and adds to ones quality of life.

DeLaCruz Design projects have included hardscape paths & patios, water features, rockscapes, in addition to plant design. As a Master Gardener with years of hands on gardening experience, I believe and practice this rule; putting the right plant in the right place! 

My client projects vary from large scale estate properties to postage stamp lots.  Each project is treated uniquely with a consistent standard of excellence. My goal is Customer satisfaction and enhancing the beauty of outdoor spaces in every way that makes the most sense for the customer.  I love to create and communicate the vision on paper.  But the best part is to see the vision realized!


Snap Shots Before and After

We had Vilma with DeLaCruz plan and implement our landscape in the fall.

The summer brought growth and then this fall...oh gosh! Vilma's creativity and expertise shined.  

We highly recommend!!

You who walk,
Maybe with troubled thoughts,
Come, enter here and rest;
And may the sweet serenity of growing things,
And the heavenly peace
Be mirrored in the soul.
