About this pro

How does your service stand out?

What makes Sedona Landscape Designer different than other companies? How many contractors have a Master's Degree in Landscape Architecture? How many contractors are really good at design vs. knowing how to build something? The value I provide is combining education, design skill, construction knowledge and 20 years of experience to my clients, while delivering results that exceed expectations. To our clients, their project needs are not in the category of being a commodity such as tree trimming or yard clean up. If you want a professional landscape designer who can also install the design, Sedona Landscape Designer stands out in the crowd. You can also feel good about his masters degree in Landscape Architecture and a design approach that strives to achieve highly creative and unique ideas that go beyond the ordinary.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

When the client is thrilled with the results and when they tell me I exceeded their expectations.

    We had a difficult situation in our backyard. We needed to create some privacy and protection from the golf course. John designed a solution . . . adding serpentine planters along the retaining wall. We're looking forward to having the plant matter grow quickly to shield us from the fairway. It was a please to work with John and his crew. John made frequent visits to the job-site to monitor the project. We look forward to having John re-landscape our front yard in the near future.

    John and his crew are top-notch! Dependable and honest, as well as true craftsmen. They did new pavers for me in the front driveway and back patio...and it looks awesome! I highly recommend John...the best!

    While John is an excellent landscape architect and builder, we also respect and appreciate his ability to listen and, quite importantly, educate on design and plant types ! His work included demolishing our entire yard and starting anew. His design work fulfilled our dreams beyond our expectations !

    John Leslie just finished designing and landscaping our backyard. He designed a beautiful plan with an outdoor fireplace, outdoor bar, pavers, and an area with artificial turf. The backyard looks outstanding! John did everything he promised in a timely manner and on budget. Without hesitation, we would use him again. He is very trustworthy and a talented landscape designer.

    John, the owner of “Sedona Landscape Designer,” designed and built a renovated entry courtyard at our Sedona home. We fully endorse his work. Below I’ve listed a few points you may want to consider when choosing a firm to plan and execute your landscaping project. • John respected both our vision for the project and our budget. He offered us alternatives that kept us within our budget while creating a beautiful and serene outdoor room. • John’s crew works quickly, quietly, and carefully. They did not leave behind clean-up projects for us and even cleaned debris off the craggy faces of the boulders in our landscape. • John’s approach to landscaping supports a naturalized, balanced approach. He discourages designs that demand high levels of manicured maintenance. This is fine with us, as it allows the natural habit of our vegetation to showcase itself. • John solved problems encountered on our site without seeking our approvals all along the way. He communicated with us throughout the project, but at an appropriate level. He did not ask us to approve every decision. For us, this level of self-confidence was important as we were resident in Sedona for only a part of the project. The result was a project completed on time and without a lot of worries for us. Good luck with your landscaping goals. We’re confident John and his firm “Sedona Landscape Designer” can move you toward your vision. Dick and Sandy, Sedona

    John did a great job on our yard. His service was very professional and the job was completed on time and on budget. John's design makes our back yard feel bigger and it looks wonderful. John has good eye for what works and the plantings he chose are very pleasing. John went above and beyond what I thought would be included on this type of job; we are very happy with the results.


What types of customers have you worked with?
Remodeling of an existing landscape. Most of my clients are either newly relocated from another state, have a second home, are retired or building a custom home.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently completed a landscape renovation for the Amara Resort and Spa in Uptown Sedona that consisted of a master plan design for the exterior grounds, working with their corporate level Director of Design and Director of Construction. While we were finishing up the job, I was approached by numerous hotel guests who told me they thought it looked great as well as the staff.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That the average "landscaper" is not licensed and should be by law if they contract for work for at least $750 here in Arizona. Landscapers who specialize in yard maintenance are not required to be licensed, but will tell potential clients that they can build certain projects that they are not licensed to do. Don't allow them to break the law by being tempted to get what may seem to be a cheap solution.
