Testimonials

“Although our new house located on the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Course was what initially attracted us to the property, the unmanaged trees and shrubs obscured our view to the course. Green grassy Fescue lawns covered much of our 1.6 acre property. A friend recommended we work with Kelly to assist us with our vision for a California contemporary outdoor living space and to convert our water-thirty landscape to drought tolerant plantings. Kelly worked with us to provide a comprehensive plan that represented EVERYTHING we wanted. We have reduced our water bill substantially, expanded our outdoor living space with a new covered patio, and received over $13,000 in turf removal rebates. Kelly is timely, professional, creative, efficient, and a pleasure to work with on all levels.”
Bob and Dottie Mulholland, Rancho Santa Fe, CA

“It is with great pleasure that I write this glowing letter of reference for Kelly Fore Dixon and her talents as a Landscape Design professional. Before I begin, let me underscore the fact that I am not related to Kelly in any way and I have no vested interest in her company. I say this because my praise of Kelly, her creative vision and her professional acuity is second to none. I am a very active Realtor who lives in the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe and offices my team in the Village of Rancho Santa Fe. When I met Kelly, there was no landscape design professional that I would have recommended. On every prior occasion, I found that responsiveness, communication, timeliness and creativity were sorely lacking. Kelly’s performance has changed that perspective. She tackles large projects and small projects alike with unwavering commitment and enthusiasm. She easily processes through the Rancho Santa Fe Association Design Review Committee, as well as the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Department which is remarkable to say the least. With a keen eye for design, Kelly is a master of the RSF plant palette and wisely advocates beautiful, sustainable and climate friendly landscaping. In addition, she can bring in and project manage a crew of her own or work with a client’s existing gardener to improve each and every property.

Every once in a while we all encounter the very best in their field. Kelly Fore Dixon is that and then some when it comes to landscaping.”

“Kelly Dixon recently acted as principal designer and project manager for a large outdoor room and pool deck that we recently constructed. At the conceptual stage of the project, Kelly presented us with a wide array of design options after listening carefully to our input and desire to achieve maximum design compatibility with our existing home. Kelly managed the project exceedingly well with daily visits, timely communications and weekly budget reviews. We have been very pleased with the final result which recently one a double design award from the California Landscape Contractors Association.”
Bob and Debbie Gustafson, Rancho Santa Fe, CA

“I would highly recommend Kelly Dixon to anyone who wants a design professional who is open to new ideas and can translate a client or organizations goals into a brand that helps the client/organization to demonstrate who they are. Kelly helped the San Diego Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects to bring together various organizations to collaborate on a cutting edge series of lectures that appealed to a cross-section of design professionals in the San Diego region. She took the lectures to next level and allowed professionals that don’t typically network with each other to share their design ideas and start their own collaborations between the various design professions.”
Tracy Morgan Hollingworth, President, Morgan Hollingworth Public Affairs & Association Management and Executive Coordinator, ASLA San Diego Chapter

“Kelly joined our company and immediately added structure, leadership and creativity to leading our design department. Smart, client-oriented and knowledgeable in her field, Kelly would be an asset for whatever project you need. Highly recommended.”
Michael Jack, COO, Landsystems Landscapes

“Kelly is goal oriented, energetic and professional. Her organizational skills and the ability to inspire other people are admirable. I enjoy not only the business relationship that we have, but also her friendship.”
Wendy Segal, President SD Lofts and Founder, Red Velvet Wine Bar

“Kelly Dixon is one of those very rare human beings who is pleasant and vigorous, feminine and real, competent and available. If she says she can do something, she will. The result will astound and the process will please. I recommend her without reservation.”
Paul Kaprowski, Independent Think Tanks Professional

“Kelly challenged my thinking and forced me to look at the some of the root issues I had been overlooking. By doing this, she opened up the doors to a whole new way of thinking. Kelly didn’t just give me advice; she actually helped me to understand my business in a different way. In turn, her knowledge and expertise has literally helped me to bring my business to the next level. It was exactly what I needed at that juncture. I look forward to bringing Kelly back to continue business consulting with me and my company in the future as I grow.”
Kendra Berger, Owner/Designer, Revive Landscape

“Kelly is very detail oriented and has fantastic organizational skills. She would be an asset to any company.”
Dan Hurd, Co-Owner/Founder, East Village Tavern + Bowl

“Kelly is an awesome woman!! Creative, disciplined, great marketing and organizational skills. We worked together as founding members of Interrobang and had a blast. I don’t see enough of her these days.”
Carol Spong, Owner, Carol Spong Interior Design Co-Founder/ASID Representative, Interrobang Lecture Series

“Kelly was the design director at the time we were working together. She managed the design team very efficiently. She provides positive support and is always energetic. She is extremely organized and gets the job done on time. I highly recommend her and would work with her again in a heart beat.”
Yukon Lam, Project Coordinator, Landsystems Landscapes

“Kelly = highly capable. Bright, quick, confident and reliable. Kelly can take charge and get things done – on time, within budget and with a lot of laughs. If I was a business owner, she’d be on my team in a heartbeat. But c’mon, be realistic, she’d be the business owner and I’m the one who would get the coffee.”
Tory Robarts Frederick, Office Manager, Burton Landscape Architecture
