Zach is a 3rd generation professional landscaper and his love for nature and the outdoors was groomed at an early age. His grandfather designed the landscaping for the LA Zoo, and his mother has been a residential landscaper for more than 20 years, instilling
his desire to create beautiful, functional gardens and outdoor spaces.

Whether designing for visually beautiful traditional gardens, drought tolerant yards, hillsides or attractive and functional hardscape designs, Zach has a keen ability to create results that blend seamlessly and appeal to the senses. 

Zach has an ability to listen to clients desires and produce outdoor spaces that capture their vision. He guides his clients through the design process incorporating the plant types and architectural details ensuring the results meet their desires. If requested, Urban Soil can provide custom drawings that visually outline his landscape designs.

Zach brings together his knowledge of horticulture, design and construction to deliver elegantly styled landscapes. His strong belief in high quality work is evident, and the work and attention to detail of the Urban Soil crew speaks for itself.


This review is long overdue, as Zach and his team completed their work just after Thanksgiving 2018. This was my first experience with a landscaper, though I had spoken with others, and Zach was always available with any questions I had, which were many. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted, but Zach really helped me narrow down options and my desire for every kind of plant. We did DG and mulch and with areas defined by bender board and it really looks fantastic. The plant choices he helped with are now looking fabulous and my yard is awash in beautiful purple, orange and yellow. The small Palo Verde we put in is even blooming. It looks even better than I imagined and I could not have gotten it done without his fantastic work. He even came out immediately when I called to say that the rain we had right after the install had washed some DG away, and that I could not find some low voltage wiring that they had laid. It was really less than I had thought at first, but he came out right away with his guys and placed what little DG was needed, then even pulled some weeds that were growing through the mulch and placed extra mulch and left me with extra, as well as locating the low voltage wiring. He was truly a great guy to work with. Cannot thank you enough, Zach.

Zach and his guys were great. We had a very big project. Front yard backyard and pool area. I had an idea for my dream garden and Zach made it come true. Zach was very professional and came prepared. His guys were also great! They cleaned up after every days work. Sprinklers, landscape lighting all new and what a great job they did. We couldn’t be happier with the results. I would strongly recommend Urban Landscaping to anyone in need of a great landscape designer. Very happy to have hired Zach.

I’m so pleased to write about our great experience with Urban Soil Landscapes and Design. Particularly with Zach and his incredible crew. This was a big project that completely reconfigured and redesigned our entire backyard space.
Zach was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the project. From the outset, we felt comfortable with Zach because of his vision, attention to detail and professionalism. He has an exemplary work ethic is and is always available. His design concepts were fantastic, and he included us in every decision along the way. He is so unbelievably dedicated to his work and was here at the job several times a day making certain the project was being done correctly, accurately and finished in a timely manner. He has assembled an exceptional and talented crew that are dependable, pleasant, extremely hard working and always professional.
Needless to say, I recommend Zach without reservation and with the highest enthusiasm. Thanks to Zach and Urban Soil, the transformation of our yard has made us extremely happy and proud!

Zach gave us a fair price for our landscaping needs. That included replacing grass with drought tolerant plants in the front yard (in accordance with LADWP rebate program) and installing artificial grass in the back yard. Zach and his team exceeded our expectations for the landscape design, selection of boulders, selection of plants, irrigation needs, and general workmanship through out the job. He and his team paid extra attention to details and was very flexible when it came to changes. Zach was easy to talk to and very above board. The other competitors we spoke to all had some gimmick to try to get our business. Zach says it the way it is. We highly recommend Urban Soil Landscape for your landscaping needs.
