California Landscape and Design has been designing and installing landscapes for more than two and a half decades. The C.E.O. and owner Joseph Ciaglia started California Landscape and Design with the landscape installation for Dodge and surrounding car dealerships in Glendora California, and has now grown into a well-known and established landscape construction company. At present, California Landscape and Design has a senior landscape design manager and design team who works with the general public and public agencies. CLD also staffs a landscape specialist in drought tolerant design and planting pallets; this specialist stays current and informed on county and city requirements/regulations and works in conjunction with the design team to provide our clients with the most sustainable and aesthetically  pleasing design concepts for professional irrigation and landscape installations. Our design department is also proficient in providing our clients designs that range from tropical, contemporary, Mediterranean, French, Napa Valley, modern, and any one-of-a-kind ideas. The CLD Corporation also provides a well-trained and managed construction team to install the hardscape portion of the projects which is not limited to outdoor kitchens, fire places, swimming pools, water features, and decks made out of natural materials and/or architectural/structural concrete finishes. California Landscape and Design employs highly qualified and trained sales and architectural staff. Please call or e-mail to inquire about our services.

Drought Tolerant


Today, we feel there is a lack of real direction, experience, knowledge, and passion within our industry, and more specifically on the issue of water conservation as well as land and resource management. It is our intention and focus to improve our large outdoor spaces through a process of thoughtful and experienced design, sound construction practices, and careful land management. Our areas of concern are: to reduce (or eliminate) existing grass, replace old and declining plant material, upgrade irrigation systems, and explore new methods of capturing run-off.


What this accomplishes –

•    Significant reduction in water usage in both greenbelts and planted areas.

•    Significant reduction in water usage at the irrigation infrastructure.

•    Reduced water waste due to runoff.

•    Reduced pollution with the absence of large mowers and the heavy equipment related to their mobilization.

•    Significant reduction in water utility costs.

•    Reduced property management costs.

•    Reduced energy utility costs.

•    Increased presence of positive resource and air quality management in the community.

•    Ornamental value of property is increased.

•    Compliance with new statewide Landscape ordinances.

•    It’s the right thing to do.


Please afford us the opportunity to explore these positive changes in more detail with you.
