John and his crew did an excellent job installing our native plant garden! They really understand native plants and water conservation. They built a beautiful bioswale to conserve water and updated our irrigation system to be more efficient. And we appreciate the nice extra touches, from compost tea to give the plants a natural boost, to contouring around the edges of the yard so the mulch won’t spill onto the driveway or sidewalk. And I love the flagstone and pebble pathways they designed and built! John was easy to work with, and we’re very happy with our garden.

John and his team were outstanding to work with for our back yard project. John helped design a great plan for our backyard understanding our taste and the look we were trying to achieve. I have not worked with a more courteous and friendly crew. They completed the job on time and with care. In addition, they were incredibly clean and went above and beyond to ensure our house and yard were left well maintained. It was a pleasure to work with this crew and will be utilizing them for future projects. Thank you for everything!

John and his crew were fabulous. Great communication from 1st bids and any change orders (ours) Always knew when they would be on site etc. Provided own toilet - cleaned up each night before they left. Great creativity and knows NATIVE plants very well. Our job was not huge included moving giant boulders. All done with the right tools for this job. Job included entry path and bridge to front door. with boulders and lighting. AMAZING job. I will use Kelly Grn Landscape again.

It was a pleasure working with John. His is professional and easy going. He also has great garden design and problem solving skills, and is knowledgeable about CA native plants. His crew was professional, polite, arrived on time, and cleaned up at the end of each day.
The yard installation was completed to schedule and we are very pleased with the outcome. I would definitely recommend John for any installations and will be calling him again for work in the back yard. Thanks John and Crew.
