We are committed to transforming your space into a beautiful outdoor living area that is simply an extension of your home. 


Lou Penning Landscapes is a local, family-owned and operated business with over 30 years of experience in professional landscape management. Under the leadership first of Lou Penning and under Ben’s leadership since 2017, we have served Napa and Sonoma counties since 1988. Over the years, we have gained expertise in a number of settings, including residential and commercial properties. Our team regularly collaborates with landscape architects, large estates owners, and companies with strong corporate images. 

We provide our clients with uniquely designed landscapes. We take pride in creating designs that complement our clients’ spaces and lifestyles. Our building team takes their time, inspecting as they go to ensure that each installation is meticulous. We also focus on creating sensible maintenance plans that will help you manage the garden long into the future.


Our landscaping services include irrigation and lighting, design and building (installation), and ongoing maintenance. No matter what the service, our team is focused on enhancing the livability of your property.


Lou Penning Landscapes is committed to protecting the environment. It is our goal to make sure that your landscape is not only environmentally friendly, but is well suited to the environment in which you live. We are a Bay-Friendly Qualified Professional business, a Bay Area Green Business, and a partner in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program.
