“It’s not enough for the job to be completed in a timely manner and within the budget; the result must be a perpetual source of pride and beauty for our clients,” said Lin.


Linda 'Lin' Phillippi of Phillippi Landscape combines her natural artistic ability and horticultural knowledge of 18 years to create stunning outdoor living spaces.

A local design/build company, Phillippi Landscape has created and installed hundreds of unique landscapes in high-end residences and commercial properties throughout the Coachella Valley since 1993. In the spring of 2010, Phillippi Landscape joined commercial landscape company Vintage Associates, Inc., a dynamic merging of attention to detail, high standards, and quality materials. The newly formed team takes pride in the long-term value customers receive from creative design, custom lighting, and expert installation.

The Process

PHASE 1 Initial Visit

Lin will learn from the client:

gate before

Gate After

PHASE 2 Proposal

Once a retainer toward the design is received (the fee varies according to job size and requirements), measurements are taken to generate a hand-drawn plan that is ready for client approval and the HOA, if necessary. The detailed ¼” = 1’ scale plan denotes the location of such items as hardscape, plant material with common and Latin names, boulders, fountains, benches, and pots. Photos will be taken while noting sun exposure, and existing irrigation and lighting.

After the plan is completed, an installation estimate is generated, including line items for all materials, labor, and sub-contractors, if needed.  Lin selects specific  “before” photos and sketches “after” drawings to further illustrate her design.

Upon client approval, payment for the remaining design balance is due, and the design and installation estimate is now the property of the client to utilize as they wish. But, of course, the best choice for installation is the crew of Vintage Landscape, managed by Lin Phillippi.
