Here are some of the things our customers have said about us...


"We presented a particular challenge to our designer as we didn't have a clear picture in our mind as to what we wanted our redesigned backyard to look like. The designer never gave up on us or lost her patience with us as we struggled to articulate what we liked or disliked. The end result was a design that was everything and more than what we had hoped for. The employees that created the new landscape, installed the drip line, water feature and hardscape were so pleasant, considerate, and attentive to making us happy and exceeding our expectations that we actually enjoyed having them around while they completed the work. Some bumps in a major project are unavoidable, but everything was handled professionally and always to our satisfaction. Bottom line is that we are thrilled with the way it all turned out."

Solana did a great job for us. Your attention to detail and making our project look great was amazing. Although our patio and driveway was probably a small project for you, we felt we had your full attention and focus on our project. For us the Solana design was far more creative and met our needs more than the any other company. The install team was hard working, efficient and polite. Whenever any concerns arose or we had questions, they were quickly and professionally handled. We are very happy with how our project turned out.

"I would like to thank the entire team at Solana for a beautiful backyard transformation. The work effort that went into our project involved many skilled professionals. Working with Solana was a pleasure from our first meeting to the final finished product including the final punch list work. They took into consideration our neighbors' concerns, what was needed to access the yard through a common area, and what would be needed to restore the common area to the extent that it was disturbed by that access. We were kept informed on progress being made. We were provided pictures periodically which was exciting because it allowed us to see the changes taking place in our absence. The staff and the crew were a pleasure to work with. I can't say enough on how helpful they were on answering questions we may have had. To look back and see the before and after pictures is nothing short of amazing. A special thank you to Micaela who made the entire process a real pleasure. Thank you to everyone at Solana, we couldn't be happier!"

"Solana did the complete design and landscaping for our front and back yards in Marana. We were extremely satisfied with their services. They paid close attention to our desires and incorporated them all into a design that melds easily with the surrounding natural landscape. Our lot slopes up into a small canyon and Alan, our designer, was able to capture such amazing views from everywhere in the yard. The entire backyard flows well from house to pool to firepit. They created a truly unique entertainment area under our sala where guests can relax. The attention to detail was very strong and everyone on the crew to date has been very responsive to any of our needs and requests. I would highly recommend them to anyone."

"The entire yard looks the best it ever has!"

"Thank you for taking care of us. I appreciate you putting up with me and getting things done before we had to return home. Best of all the entire yard looks the best it ever has! I look forward to having you maintain the yard for us in the future. The landscape part of owning a home in Tucson has been by far the most difficult thing we have had to deal with. We could not find a company that we could trust to show up and just take care of things. Thank You!"

We Won Best In Show At the SAHBA Home and Patio Show!

We at Solana Outdoor Living are extremely happy to announce our receipt of the "Best in Show" Award for this year’s Spring SAHBA Home Show. Twice a year, the Southern Arizona Home Builders Association (SAHBA) hosts the largest home and patio show in Tucson, AZ. Of the thousands of vendors participating in the home show, only one display booth is awarded "Best in Show."

When we first set out to design our display booth, we knew we wanted to highlight the custom outdoor design services Solana Outdoor Living has to offer. To that end, we created a display incorporating spillover outdoor water features, recycled granite pavers, decorative walls made of stone and rebar, also known as gabion walls, and a pergola featuring a rooftop garden. Our display booth also featured a custom outdoor kitchen made of rammed-earth—a technique where dyed local soil and stabilizers are combined and formed into a decorative wall—and contained both a Caliber Crossflame Grill and a Caliber Thermashell Pro. In only three short days, we were able to install a display booth that demonstrates Solana Outdoor Living’s rank as one of the top landscape contractors in Tucson, AZ.

We would like to sincerely thank all the SAHBA community members for their continued support of Solana Outdoor Living. We are truly honored to have received the “Best in Show” Award, and will continue to uphold the hard work and dedication that makes Solana Outdoor Living one of the best luxury outdoor design companies in Tucson, AZ.
