Founded in 1992, Farnsworth Landscaping is a locally owned and operated design and build landscaping company. For the past 18 yrs we have been growing beautiful yard and garden spaces in the Greater Bay Area – including Marin, San Francisco, Sonoma and Alameda Counties. Our company specializes in creating a fluidity between indoor and outdoor living spaces that are ecologically conscious, and harmoniously integrated into the living eco-system of each location. We honor sustainable practices, which include: working with deer-resistant and drought tolerant California Native and Mediterranean plants; utilizing recycled and sustainably harvested building materials (whenever possible); incorporating edible flower and vegetable gardens; and developing irrigation and water systems with a focus on water harvesting, recirculation and conservation.
About Matt Farnsworth
Licensed Landscape Design Contractor
I live to design and build landscapes. As a small child, I began interacting artistically with the natural environment and was gardening alongside my father professionally by the age of 12. By 18, I was apprenticing and installing for some of the top designers and architects in my field, such as Steve Stuckey, Carol Poshepny, Michelle Dervis, and Davis Dalbok; and my installations included gold medal awards in the SF Garden Show (for both Carol Poshepny and Davis Dalbok). In 1992, at the age of 25, I became a licensed California Landscape Contractor (CLC) and struck out on my own in founding Farnsworth Landscaping. In the last 25 yrs I have developed an intuitive, organic approach to landscape design that is highly artistic, environmentally conscious, and customized to enhance and unearth the unique and inherent beauty in each piece of land that I touch.
