Zscape Landscape Designs

San Diego Landscape Designer Frank Zottolo Offers Some Of The Best Affordable Residential Garden & Outdoor Design

My name is Frank Zottolo owner of Zscape Landscape Designs. I’m passionate about gardens and I want you to feel passionate about your garden. I’ve worked as a landscape designer in San Diego since 1973, so I know exactly what it takes to get the job done, thereafter giving you years of enjoyment.

Over the course of my career, I’ve gained a number of qualifications and won several awards. Creating the perfect garden is about working with the client’s wants and needs, designing a space that’s right for them. I bring this mentality with me to every job and this helps me succeed with you.

Included in my credentials are:

  • Irrigation auditor
  • Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper
  • Certified arborist
  • Certified landscape technician in irrigation and maintenance
  • Certificates in landscape design and estimates

I offer an extensive range of services as a landscape designer. So, if you’re looking for anything from hardscaping and water features, vegetable garden designs and night light rendering to a simple consultation on plant layout, then I’m the landscape designer for you. No job is too big or too small, and I welcome working with small spaces.

I typically work with gardens between 1,000 and 2,500 square feet in size, but will always consider projects beyond this. We can look at your space together and then I create a computer rendering of the plan complete with plant names, quantities and layout. This allows you to get the best visualization of your property. View sample design themes below.


Working in San Diego means working with the local climate, so optional designs can be drought tolerant and native species when possible. I also offer seacoast designs if that’s something you’re looking for.

Another crucial element in a San Diego landscape designer is working with the client’s ability and desire to spend time working in their own garden. After all, not everyone wants a near maintenance free garden. Like me, some people are happy to get their hands dirty. Whatever your approach in keeping your garden enjoyable, I’ll design it around your needs.

Unlike other landscape designers in San Diego, I’m always happy to do an initial property assessment and consultation over the phone. This allows me to get a good idea of your plans and start thinking about your space before I’ve even seen it. After a site visit I offer a free estimate of the design renderings with no obligation to continue. I’m more than happy to see your garden, discuss things with you and then see how we proceed.

So, if you’re looking for a landscape designer in San Diego, I’d love Zscape Landscape Design to be your first choice. I have over 40 years experience in landscape design, and my credentials allow me to take on virtually every aspect of the project. Contact me today for an initial consultation and free estimate, and let’s see how we can make your garden grow.
