Summer In Sanborn

Hello and welcome to the Winter edition of the Sanborn County rag! Well, it’s supposed to be winter, anyway – some real unusual weather patterns have been causing the county to be unseasonably warm after the sudden snowstorm hit us in December.

The warm weather has caused some Sanbornians to venture out and start participating in traditional summer activities, including taking a dip in Lake Sanborn and venturing out into the woods at night! Note: we do not recommend venturing out into the woods at any time, especially at night.

While some are having fun in the sun, others are stuck indoors thanks to a poorly managed yard and patio setup. They listlessly wander around their darkened homes, sunlight blocked by the tall grass and weeds that tend to grow at astounding rates during times of draught and warm weather.

So, for them, we’re going to introduce a company new to our area who is trying to help provide residents with some of the best patio ideas available on the market right now: Torrey Pines Landscaping! Yes, the world-famous landscaping company has finally opened a branch in our neck of the woods, and we couldn’t be happier about it!

Just take a look at some of these testimonials and burn with jealousy that you can’t be among their clientele – not yet, anyway!

Torrey Pines is the 4th company , starting over 10 years ago, we have had for landscapers.  We had two mow & blow companies, and one other professional company but weren’t happy.  TP fantastic.  Our site supervisor is a true horticulture expert, the employees have an educational 1/2 day every other week, we NEVER have to worry about anything and our 1 acre+ of landscaping is a joy and pleasure.  They just did a major needed driveway and retaining wall replacement; they are excellent hardscape contractors as well.  They asked to copy and paste the note I sent them, but it wasn’t sufficient to communicate the quality of their work.

Hi Torrey Pines guys,

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on our wall, driveway, and landscape.  The replacement landscape is growing in beautifully.  We want to tell you how much we are enjoying how wonderful and professional it all looks.  Special thanks to Mark who suggested we get a bid and consider the project.  Please pass on our thanks to the crew who did such a wonderful job, especially the incredible brick work; a work of art.

Thank you,

Julie and Bob (Google review)

Read Gary E.‘s review of Torrey Pines Landscape Company on Yelp

“We bought a home in the Crosby in Rancho Santa Fe, and it was an ugly mess of landscaping with a design that made the front look short and covered the back golf course view.  It needed a major beautification.

We knew we needed Torrey Pines Landscaping, and their wonderful team lead by the humble Harry Thompson.  Harry has a servant’s heart plus a special talent for landscape design. 

Torrey Pines Landscaping transformed the ugly landscaping to an awarding winning design that ended up on the cover of San Diego Home/Garden. 

If you really appreciate great design, beautiful flowers and nature, and quality work, Torrey Pines Landscaping is the only choice!” (Ryan S., Yelp)

Thanks for coming to our humble county, Torrey Pines! We promise you’ll find your work cut out for you; the grass here has a mind of its own.

Beautifying the Sanborn Landscape!

Good morning, Sanbornians! Your ever-faithful reporter is BACK for another addition of this top selling county rag!

Today, we’re going to be talking about how to make Sanborn a little more beautiful, as many in our county are tired of what’s quickly becoming known as our ‘opioid crisis chic’ county aesthetic. Yes, rampant globalization has had its effects on the citizenry here and effectively destroyed most of our productive capacity, turning a once prosperous part of the country into a de facto shantytown, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some pride in our appearance!

To these ends, a new company has decided to take our invitation (and substantial tax incentive) and set up shop in our humble little hamlet. That company is the Mission Hills-based Torrey Pines Landscaping Company, one of southern California’s premier landscape design and construction firms!

Just take a look at the Google review from Julie and Bob Engler, who utilized Torrey Pines for their landscaping projects in their La Jolla home:

Torrey Pines is the 4th company , starting over 10 years ago, we have had for landscapers.  We had two mow & blow companies, and one other professional company but weren’t happy.  TP fantastic.  Our site supervisor is a true horticulture expert, the employees have an educational 1/2 day every other week, we NEVER have to worry about anything and our 1 acre+ of landscaping is a joy and pleasure.  They just did a major needed driveway and retaining wall replacement; they are excellent hardscape contractors as well.  They asked to copy and paste the note I sent them, but it wasn’t sufficient to communicate the quality of their work.

If that doesn’t get you excited for a new exterior for your home, I don’t know what will! And to the 35% of Sanbornians who have been made homeless due to successive economic crises caused by repressive governmental policies and destructive trade agreements over the last 30 years, think of all of the gorgeous yards you get to squat in for the foreseeable future!

Many have been both surprised and frightened at the pace of rewilding of Sanborn since these mass evictions as well – the woods seem to overtake entire neighborhoods almost overnight. The more brave Sanbornians who still emerge from their homes at night have also noted that they can almost hear the plants growing, the sound of crackling wood and rustling vegetation growing so loud that they are overcome with a sense of overwhelming dread. To help fight back against the revenge of the forest, new landscapers are the perfect warriors!

If you’re interested in making your neighborhood just a little bit brighter and more beautiful and fighting back against the encroachment of the wood, give Torrey Pines a call. They may be your last chance!

Your New Party Room

La Jolla is a beautiful seaside area in California known for its rugged coastline. The city is home to beautiful beachside boutiques, restaurants, and homes. Residents of the city take pride in their home improvement and exterior landscaping.

Your backyard is a perfect place to create an inviting space that feels like a natural extension of your interior common area. A patio is a great way to give your home more versatility and comfort with an outdoor living room. Taking your party outside elevates the mood and gives your guests a whole new experience.

There are fantastic people with professional landscaping expertise in La Jolla. If you’re thinking about a project, you will find plenty of ideas and inspiration by searching online. Remember that this will be an investment in time and energy, so make sure you know what you want today, as well as in five or ten years from today.

Beautiful and innovative projects are all over town. We wanted to showcase one of them, from the home of local resident Lily Grace. “Our backyard is where the magic happens. We have guests over almost every weekend, so our backyard is more of an outdoor dining room for entertaining and celebrating special moments,” says Grace.

White Plates on Table

“We wanted the style of space to feel modern yet comfortable, so we chose neutral tile tones to contrast the greenery of the rest of it. The tile is easy to clean and gives us a great foundation for a dining table and lots of seating.”

Grace notes that hiring a professional landscaper was the best decision she made when it came to improving her backyard. “We considered doing it ourselves, however we realized that we would rather hire an expert to save us time and money, who would install everything correctly so that we wouldn’t have any hassle down the road. It’s been a few years since we had everything installed and it looks as beautiful as it did when it was first finished!”

With DIY becoming more popular than ever, you may consider taking on home improvement yourself. However, a landscaping project requires a considerable amount of time and energy, and doing it for the first time on your own may not deliver the spectacular results you are hoping for.

“We couldn’t be happier with the end result. We are always getting compliments from our guests about how much they love our backyard. We definitely have not regretted the investment.”

You want to think of the exterior to be an extension of your home’s interior style. Perhaps you have a classic look and feel between the furnishings and colour scheme of your living room. You can take those same elements outdoors to create a more fluid transition between the inside and outside. If you have a vision, be sure to find a landscaper who will take the time to understand it and show you examples of what you are describing. Your backyard might just be the next go-to weekend destination for your friends and family. Your dream backyard can become a reality by having the right landscape architect or designer based La Jolla.

Melissa, a reporter for the Sanborn County Daily, walked into the Cozy Café and looked down at her watch, 5 minutes until 7 AM perfect, she thought. She grabbed a coffee, sat down, and waited. After another 5 minutes, she saw a gentleman walk through the door wearing a Torrey Pines Landscaping San Diego shirt. Melissa waved her hand and smiled. The man waved grabbing a coffee quick and then approaching her.

“Hi, Melissa?” he questioned.

“Yes, hello!” She stood extending her hand, “You must be Paul it is so nice to meet you! Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of your work.”

“Wow, thanks,” he replied. Melissa couldn’t help but notice the glimmer of genuine happiness in his eyes. He must receive compliments all the time, she thought. How refreshing it was to talk to someone with a bit of modesty.

“Well, let’s get started, Paul you have recently relocated to our town and with you came quite the business. What inspired the move?” Melissa questioned.

“Well, my family and I were just looking for somewhere quiet to settle down and this seemed like the perfect place,” Paul replied.

“That’s interesting,” Melissa continued, “Most people have never even heard of our quiet town, let alone relocated here on a whim without some sort of family tie. So, you really have no ties to the area?”

“Um, no. We don’t have any ties to the area, unfortunately,” Paul went on, “we had heard about the town through a friend who absolutely raved about it and we just couldn’t get it out of our heads.”

“Well, we are certainly glad you are here!” Melissa said, “I’d love to hear more about your work.”

Paul started, “Yes, I love my work! My business caters to homeowners who are bored with their current backyard set up. I work with my customers to create their dream oasis. It honestly is a dream come true for me. I love seeing a customer’s face when a project is finished. That is the best part of my job by far.” Paul smiled genuinely and Melissa could tell he meant what he said.

“That is so endearing Paul. I think the public would love to know how you got started in the landscaping business.” Melissa said.

“Well, it is something that has run in the family, my grandfather had a landscaping company and then my father and then me. I guess you could say it just runs in our blood.” Paul said with a laugh.

“That is so sweet,” Melissa said, “Okay, one final question for you, What is your number one goal for your business?”

“That is a great question,” Paul said, “and it’s easy for me to answer, I want to make Sanborn County the most beautiful county to live in the entire country! And that’s no joke.” Paul said with a wink.

Melissa could tell why the business was doing so well, “Wow, what a personality” she thought.

“Anything else you would like our readers to know?” Melissa asked Paul.

“If you are looking for landscaping help make sure to look up Torrey Pines Landscape Contractors! You won’t be disappointed.” Paul ended with.

“Thank you so much for your time Paul,” Melissa said, “I can’t wait to see how you help to transform the neighborhoods here!”
