Inspired by Our Outdoors, Committed to Its Future
Austin Woodworth, Owner
Austin Woodworth, owner of Modified Landscapes Design has over 20 years of landscaping experience. As a young child, he always wanted to be outside playing with nature. When he graduated high school an opportunity in a small landscaping company became available, naturally Austin accepted. Through that first job he knew he had a future in landscaping. Years later Austin began his own company called Custom Landscape Creations, but with the fall of the economy he was unable to sustain his new business. He decided it was best to close the business, and quickly found a head of store management position at Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply. Here he quickly increased sales, customer experience and overall employee moral. He was at Ewing for 2 years, before heading over to landscape management company Stay Green as an Account Manager. At Stay Green he quickly increased customer retention and customer experience, as well as employee morale. About 5 years in upper management, Austin decided he had a real passion for leadership and wanted to branch out on his own as the need for professional landscaping increased.
In Spring of 2015 Modified Landscape Design, formerly known as Modified Landscapes, was established by Austin and his wife Crystal. Behind Austin’s leadership, Modified Landscape Design has created client’s dream landscapes all across the Los Angeles and San Francisco Silicon Valley areas.
Austin can be described as honest and hard working. He enjoys building long lasting relationships with his clients that are based on quality work and honesty. Oftentimes, he will educate his clients not just through the process of the project but on other landscape needs and how to best sustain it with simple tips. As a leader, Austin has always been a team player and mentor. It is important to him that all members of his team feel valued and appreciated with honesty, respect and high expectations.
Austin is a proud husband and father to two daughters. He has two dogs Batman and Robyn. He takes pride in being the first family college graduate, receiving a BS in Kinesiology from Cal Poly Pomona in 2006. Owning a small business can propose its challenges when it comes to free time, but Austin does his best to manage all personal, family and business time. He loves spending time with his girls, music, family beach vacations, continuing to educate himself in something new monthly and playing golf.

"Austin was great! He was able to help me troubleshoot my sprinkler control panel, dead tree removal (2x), and irrigation issues virtually via FaceTime!! We scheduled a call, as I am outside his service area, and he diagnosed the problem immediately. I was amazed how he could help me remotely. He provided a solution to my problem!"
