We often like to recognize the unique and valued partnerships that we have developed with Landscape Professionals throughout the Bay Area. For example, Landscape architect, Jeff Gamboni.

For over 150 years, this rich and diverse community has grown to include landscape contractors, facilities managers, landscape architects, government park managers and many more professionals.

Seasoned Landscape Architects in Stockton

Jeff Gamboni is the founder and principal of Jeffrey F. Gamboni Landscape Architect | JFGLA. As a Harvard University, Graduate School of Design alumni with a masters degree in Landscape Architecture, he leads a five-person office that he founded in 1992.

Jeff is also a certified arborist. He added these credentials to his extensive training and expertise because he sought to better understand the biology of trees and wanted to have intimate knowledge of the proper techniques for planting, pruning, and the continuum of care required for all trees.

Jeff guides the work at JFGLA to reflect his interest and passion for planting design that use arboriculture and horticulture to inform plant selections and locations. This helps to ensure that plant selection and decisions are based on the long-term effectiveness of the plant material, not just cosmetic aesthetics.

JFGLA’s full range of services include:

  • | Landscape Design | Bringing ideas to life
  • | Designing for the future | Low-maintenance landscapes
  • | Remodeling | Outdoor spaces for living
  • | Pre-Construction Design | Bringing outdoor + indoor spaces together

Our partnership with Landscape architect, Jeff Gamboni

Gamboni Landscape Architecture has been working with Pacific Nurseries for over 25 years.

Jeff describes his passion for hands-on experience and selection of plant material as an outgrowth of doing plant installation work in the 1970s. He has always enjoyed visiting nurseries and tracking down unusual plants.

Today, he purchases everything from ground covers, grasses, CA native plants, shrubs and trees from Pacific Nurseries at both the Stockton | King Island and Colma growing grounds. Jeff shared his experience with Pacific Nurseries,
“It’s great to have a nursery partner that can track down and locate out of the ordinary plants that we just can’t get locally.
He also added, “After working with Pacific Nurseries for decades, they consistently demonstrate their broad reach and unique ability to source and deliver specific specimens or difficult to find plants and trees. They’ve always been responsive and are quick to address our particular needs for a great landscape solution.”
