Landscape Lighting Services In Phoenix & Scottsdale
Reviews & Testimonials
When we moved into our home, the first thing my husband wanted to do was have an outdoor kitchen built. After searching the internet, he reached out to Andy at Arte Verde Landscape Design. From our first meeting until the finished project we knew we had found the best of the best from design to installation of the outdoor kitchen and then a beautiful Koi Pond in our courtyard to repairing out irrigation lines and the outdoor lighting. Professional, courteous, detailed, creative….what more could we have asked for! Thank you Andy and Arte Verde Landscape Design!
Andy and his team are extraordinary. I simply cannot say enough about Andy’s artistic vision, his service, his team’s courtesy and reliability, and his amazing attention to detail. From initial designs, through budget considerations, project planning, submitting plans to my HOA for approvals, execution, and timeline – Andy exceeded all of my expectations. I have owned eight homes and built four of them from the ground up. I have never had an experience with a contractor that went so smoothly. Simply stated, Andy does what he says he is going to do. If you want to transform your outdoor living space, make Arte Verde your first call.
We decided to use Andy to redesign our yard because he truly thinks like an artist. He turned our yard into a beautiful desert landscape while keeping maintenance to a minimum and enhancing the beautiful plants with lighting and boulders. He was easy to work with and needed little guidance to achieve exactly what we envisioned. Andy also built a fire pit which again blends with the landscape, and turned out just as we wanted. He is easy to work with, dependable, and produces exactly what he promises. Andy has true passion for his work, which shines through in the results. Highly recommend!
Andy/Arte Verde designed a lovely, natural desert landscape for our front and back yard. Two years later it is still beautiful and we get many compliments about how artistic it is. We just started using their maintenance services and they are doing a nice job of keeping it neat.
I met Andy several years ago when looking for someone to remodel my back yard in McCormick Ranch. Andy and his team knocked it out of the park. We recently sold our home and I am 100% convinced that the Backyard work that Andy designed and implemented were a key point of the sale. When my wife and I moved into our new home, we called Andy and he helped us update the front yard lanscaping. Andy treated our “update” of our front yard with the same enthusiasm and attention to detail that he did our major backyard remodel of our old home.
Knowing we wanted to redo our landscape, for several years I followed landscape designers in Phoenix Home and Garden magazine, paying close attention to photos of homes and who landscaped them I found 3 designers I thought were outstanding. We chose Arte Verde to do the work. Andy Page designed a very large, difficult landscape for our front yard. It was very barren, flat and had several drainage problems as well as a virtually unusable patio. We told him we wanted a lush Sonoran desert landscape that would have flowers somewhere nearly year-round. He created a breath taking design but we opted for a few changes…
We are thrilled with the magnificent job Andy and ArteVerde did with our landscaping. I am impressed with the attention to detail and how Andy was there every step of the way to make sure everything was done right and in a timely manner. I highly recommend getting the “surface select” boulders as well as his lighting design. Truly artistic. Also, his choice of plants are both beautiful and low water usage. Andy went above and beyond to make sure the outcome was perfect.
The work that Andy did for us was spectacular. We have a large property and the landscaping was overgrown, messy, and basically had no design. After interviewing Andy, and three other companies, I was optimistic that he would turn our messy yards into beautiful desert gardens. He was there for every step, making sure that things got done right and in a timely manner. We are thrilled with the outcome! I particularly like his use of lighting and highly recommend the “surface select boulders” that added a lot of interest to different areas of the landscape. Everything is just beautiful with hummingbird flower gardens, and landscaping design that enhanced our pool. Andy’s attention to detail is what impressed me the most. He truly is an artist. I definitely give Andy and Arte Verde five stars.

LED bulbs will provide years of use (rated for 50,000 hours/1p+ years) and will help fight the problem with dim bulbs and premature buring out (changing bulbs all the time). These bulbs also use lower wattage (typically 3-7 watts) and will reduce heat amounts to ensure longer life. Invite Arte Verde to inpect your currrent system to find out if using what you have (vs installing new) is an option for you, especially if you need to stick to a small budget. Most of the time, LED conversions can be combined with repositioning of your fixtures and that will be all that you need.
