Eco-Friendly Landscape Design: Meet Deep Rooted Designs

Design projects should revolve around creating an experience – not just as an end result for the user but also throughout the design process. That’s why it’s important for me to work with and recommend other small businesse owners whom I trust. Not only am I big fan of supporting other small businesses (#supportSDlocal) – I also like to seek out individuals who are known for their attention to detail and who work hard to leave a positive impression on their clients.


I came across Deep Rooted Designs while reaching out to local contractors. Deep Rooted Designs specializes in both landscape design and landscape construction, helping their clients to create amazing outdoor spaces that are both lovely and water efficient. They are experts in building drought tolerant landscapes, Xeriscapes, which have a positive environmental impact as well as conserve precious water. Plus, they are gorgeous:

Deep Rooted Designs is owned and operated locally by James Fahy. James worked for years in the construction industry and saw many pitfalls in the process. He felt that homeowners were frequently left in the dark and the projects were often unorganized. James was inspired to start his own company to streamline a typically chaotic process into something more transparent and seamless. He partnered with real estate investment expert Rich Rechif and Deep Rooted Designs was born.

Xeriscapes can reduce water usage by 50%, and with Deep Rooted’s help, can become the eco-friendly outdoor living space of your dreams. One of my favorite projects of theirs is a backyard indoor-outdoor living space in Del Cerro (that I would like to be invited to BBQ at).

From the mangaris deck, to the redwood pergola, to the expert placement of drought resistant plants – this project is truly the perfect outdoor space for tranquil living and dining. No detail is overlooked and this inviting space reflects that.

Deep Rooted Designs are fully licensed and insured landscape contractors. They specialize in complete front or backyard overhauls, woodworking, masonry, horticulture, irrigation, lighting, BBQ islands, and more.
