Steve Hansen, owner of Hansen Landscape Contractor

Few landscape contractors earn the prestigious Diamond Certified award, which means they’ve been independently rated Highest in Quality. Even fewer can also claim more than 30 years of industry experience, but that’s exactly the case for Hansen Landscape Contractor. The skills needed to be a top-quality landscape designer and installer are diverse, and it takes decades to master them all, from drainage and irrigation systems to soil preparation, plants and water features. “We’ve been around long enough that we’ve surpassed the learning curve that most landscaping companies experience,” explains owner Steve Hansen. “Our familiarity with the industry gives us a distinct advantage.”

Hansen Landscape Contractor has been designing and installing landscapes for Bay Area homes and businesses since 1978. The family-owned and operated company’s work includes grading and drainage, sprinkler and irrigation systems, lighting, concrete work (including stamped concrete), ponds and waterfalls, decks and patio covers, soil preparation, planting, gardening and follow-up care. “We also do full-scale renovation projects where we come in, tear everything out and remake the landscape,” adds Mr. Hansen.

Unlike landscape contractors that rely solely on positive word-of-mouth to prove their landscaping capabilities, Hansen Landscape Contractor showcases much of its work at a half-acre outdoor showyard in Castro Valley, where customers can view different types of patios and decks, walkways, water features, arbors, barbeque areas, and timber and concrete materials. “It’s one-of-a-kind in the Bay Area,” says Mr. Hansen. “I don’t believe any other company has such a facility. Our customers can see our design style firsthand and get a sense for who we truly are.”

To further differentiate itself from its competition, Hansen Landscape Contractor maintains a staff comprised of landscaping professionals with specific industry expertise—a comprehensive approach that allows the company to specialize in different aspects of its clients’ projects. “We’re small enough to provide personalized service, but we’re also large enough to employ technicians who specialize in design, hardscaping, softscaping, water features and more,” says Mr. Hansen. “Because of our wide ranging expertise, we’re able to deliver on our promises and stand behind all our work.”
