In 2007, Eric Perdue took everything he had learned working alongside his Father for 12+ years in the family business to venture out on his own and launch Element Landscape Construction. Eric’s goal was to lead the landscape construction business into the 21st century by partnering with pioneers in green technology in the landscape industry. Since 2007 Eric has expanded on his vision by becoming a subject matter expert on water features, outdoor lighting, and agricultural infrastructure. Element Landscape has evolved from strictly a landscape and irrigation firm to a full service provider for homeowners. Whether your project is indoors or outdoors, Eric and Element Landscape can be your single point of contact to complete the job.

And Arnulfo, our Field Supervisor, has 30+ years of experience in the landscape industry working with Eric for the majority of that time. The five of them work closely together to ensure our customers get the best possible experience while providing affordable solutions to their home and yard needs.
We would highly recommend Element Landscape Construction. They redid our fireplace within the timeline and expectations we had. We had a clear budget and stuck to that. They helped us explore our options and make the best and most cost effective decision. It’s hard to find a trustworthy company to help you with home and yard needs and we were grateful to find him!
Eric designed a new irrigation system in my yard which included pop ups, and drip lines. His people installed it and caused minimal disruption to the grass and existing landscaping. He recommended and put in a control box that is easy to program. Eric was responsive and easy to work with and I would definitely recommend him. In addition I’ve seen some of the ponds that he’s designed and implemented and hope to have him design one for my yard in the near future.
I recently hired Element Landscape Construction to build an outside bbq and island at my home. Eric was wonderful from day one. Professional and personal. His crew completed the project on time as promised. The work turned out beautiful. They are a class act. I will definitely be calling them for any projects i need done in the future.
WOW! Eric and his crew did an outstanding job thinking out and executing on all aspects of our project. From the lighting, to plant selection, and the creativity that went into the design of our water feature, we are so glad we hired a true professional for this task because it is evident in the look of of yard. It’s professional grade not DIY. Element Landscape Construction exceeded our expectations, got the job done quickly, and stayed on budget. Our yard looks beautiful and we spend so much more time outside, thanks Eric!
I used Element Landscape for a front yard landscaping and hardscaping project. Eric worked closely with my husband and I to make sure our vision was realized. He always showed up when he said he would and his workers were quick and efficient. He installed a fabulous satellite based sprinkler system, which we love. We can control our sprinklers from our phone or ipad now. So convenient. We plan on using him again when we are ready for our backyard landscape/hardscape project.
I have hired Element Landscape Construction for several projects around my home. They did an excellent job in all cases. I found their prices to be fair and reasonable and projects were completed on-time and within budget. One of the projects was the construction of a large retaining wall and fence in my backyard. Eric, the owner, did an excellent job managing his crew, coordinating subcontractors, and communicating with myself and neighbor (it was a joint neighbor project). Eric made sure every detail was taken care of and checked in with us often to make sure it met our expectations. Eric and his team are very hardworking, honest, and respectful. I would highly recommend Element Landscape Construction for both landscape-oriented projects, as well as home improvement projects.
We hired Eric to help us transform our home irrigation system into a water saving system. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. He has introduced us to affordable web based irrigation control. Our home site is now accessible from our web connected devices providing unlimited range control. We are very excited to do our part to conserve water with this innovative easy to use system. Eric explains everything thoroughly and has lots of suggestions to make the system work for your particular needs.
We hired Eric to install some outdoor lighting at our home. Eric came up with a great design to install accent lighting in both the front and back of our home. Eric was very fast and efficient Eric had everything ready to go for the day of install it only took Eric and his crew one day to install over 35 lights and the control system. Eric selected a very nice controller that’s very user friendly. We were very happy with the end result the lights look great.
Eric Perdue is extremely professional & capable. He built an amazing triple waterfall & koi pond for us, using large local boulders. This required his team to dig, bring in & place boulders. It is the crown jewel of our yard!! Thanks, Eric! He also cleans, replaces what needs replacing & continues to very competently suggest improvements that are within our budget. All this AND he is super NICE and respectful! We are indeed very lucky! Lola & John Haag, Ojai, Ca.
Eric Perdue of Element Landscape Construction set up my grounds with an improved irrigation system based on receiving current weather data to determine watering needs. This has reduced my water bill and makes me appreciate the technology and fine service. I am able to see in real time the condition of the soil and grounds to determine if the system is working properly.
Eric Perdue and his crew were very professional from start to finish and did an OUTSTANDING Job! We most highly recommend Eric Purdue and Element Landscape Construction.
Eric is very professional. Also everyone on his crew was very nice and respectful. They did a great job on the retaining wall and fence. It came out beautiful. I would hire them again. In fact He will be doing another one of my side yard fences.

I started working in the landscape construction field when I was 15 years old. My father owned a landscape company and as soon as he would let me, I was out in the field learning the business. 20 years later I’m putting all of my experience to work on each and every project I work on. During my tenure in the industry, I have spent time in all areas of the business from design and project management to being the foreman and digging the trenches for the irrigation system. This experience has provided me a well rounded background that enables me to manage all aspects of your project. Below is a summary of areas that I have 20 years of experience in:
- Irrigation Systems & Controllers
- Plant Material
- Landscape Design
- Water Features and Pools
- Agricultural Infrastructure
- Greywater Systems
- General Contractor/Construction
