We have extensive experience designing exteriors for offices, schools, churches, and other business / commercial properties. Feel free to use the inquiry submission forms at the bottom of this page to see what we can do for your space!



If you're not a resident of our local area of the South Bay in Los Angeles, we can still design for you! No matter where you are, whether you're outside of California or even the States, you can hire us to design and create your ideal plans via our E-Design services! Simply fill out a questionnaire and we'll treat you like any other client, the only difference being we'll communicate virtually.  

Have a space you want to re-design? We'll create it for you!


A landscape design is basically a floor plan but for an outdoor area. Similar to that floor plan, our landscape designs create a visual representation of your yard or space using scaled dimensions. These plans include anything from natural elements like flowers, plants, trees, and grass as well as man-made elements such as pergolas, BBQs, Fireplaces and Fire Pits, Pools and Spas, and everything in between from lawn furniture to fountains, and even sheds. 


Creating a landscape plan really aids in the decision-making process for selecting materials. It gives you as the property owner and Dona as the landscape contractor better tools for cost estimation, and also to ensure the project can be completed within budgetary constraints. 


While most of our projects move from the design phase through installation, we don't always have to be a part of your space's construction. Meaning with just the mere measurements of your outdoor area and your desires, you can hire us to design and professionally develop your yard's plans from wherever you are be it locally in the South Bay or on the polar opposite side of the States.
