Your dream garden.
Our professional design
and installation. 



CT Scapes offers professional landscape services throughout San Diego. Our #1 priority is to do the job right the first time, whether it's designing and constructing a water-wise landscape, permaculture food forest, or a tropical garden retreat. We use high-quality plants and materials and our landscape designs are never cookie-cutter, always artistic and unique. Our gardens are characterized by soft, lush plantings, inviting pathways, and eye-catching stonework. We go for maximum impact -- vibrant colors, textures, heights and shapes that supply year-round beauty.

CT Scapes is owned and operated by Charles Tracht, a licensed landscape contractor, professional horticulturist, and native San Diegan. Our expert crew has been serving neighborhoods throughout San Diego since 1995. 


"Chip is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about plants."


I have worked with Chip for many years. He is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about plants, and has a special interest in texture and design. As if that weren’t enough, Chip is a gifted pruner. I heartily recommend him for all your gardening needs!


—E.S., Ocean Beach

"I couldn't have asked for more."


A once largely ignored, plain suburban backyard of grass has become a bird and butterfly oasis, fertile territory for the local bees and a welcome retreat for the time-pressed home-owners. 


The guidance that Chip offered and his breadth of knowledge of plants and plant care was invaluable. He shared his knowledge freely during the project and continues to check in after the completion of the job to see how things are coming along. I couldn’t have asked for more. This was an extraordinarily well planned, managed and implemented project from start to finish.

"An artist!"


Amazing job, Chip!! Truly. You’re an artist! I’m beside myself the more I walk around the garden and see everything. And I was here most of the time [during the installation], yet it’s been over the past two days that the vision came to be seen by everyone else. Wow!


—S.L., Ocean Beach

"Our yard looks amazing." 


It’s obvious that Chip loves what he does and it shows.  One year later our yard looks amazing. Everything is flourishing well beyond the expectations. Nothing has died. Nothing has grown in differently than exactly as Chip had promised it would.


Chip is also the kind of person you want on your property. He is honest and straight-forward. I was actually astonished that there were no surprises and Chip did exactly what he said he would for the price he promised. Imagine that!

"Almost bullet-proof attractive design"


Chip kept the best of the old while bringing us a fresh, low maintenance, almost bullet-proof attractive design. With Chip's hands on personal attention, the installation went well. Unlike other contractors, Chip was constantly with his crew, giving our project his full attention.
