About

Lafayette Tree & Landscape is an award-winning company, privately owned and operated by Thomas Raeth.


We have consistently earned a reputation for excellence in state and regional competitions sponsored by the California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA), the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show as well as other organizations.

“We have been winning awards for years,” Thomas Raeth said, “and we know our work stands up very well to what our peers are┬ádoing throughout the state. What is most important to me, though, is that each and every one of our clients receives a unique creation which suits their individual needs and holds up well over time. We don’t take shortcuts. Quality is very important to me, in every way.”

A major asset in developing customer satisfaction is the company’s high employee retention rate. Our talented craftsmen have been with the company for more than 20 years. Additionally, we have also established long-standing relationships with our subcontractors that bring talented, award-winning work to our projects.

Thomas Raeth’s late father, Heinz Raeth, founded the company in 1958. Thomas started helping out as a teenager and then went on to earn a degree in ornamental horticulture from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, Calif. Upon his graduation, Thomas Raeth joined his father’s company and was soon designing and installing award-winning gardens. He has traveled to gardens all over the globe, including Japan, the Caribbean, Europe and throughout the United States. He adds that world-wide exposure to his company’s design skills.
