Why Work With Us?
We are a small, locally-grown company (25 years) specializing in quality pruning, plant and garden care. Our strengths are on customer service, organic practices, eco-consciousness, efficiency, and a great working environment based on mutual respect
When you arrive at my home, which is the head quarters for the company, you'll be greeted by Lily, our 2 year old Golden Retriever. This is a family business, and you will also run into roommates, my partner and our 2 boys ages 8 and 13.
I started working in gardening in 1995 in Berkeley to stay working outside after living for a few years in a community in Oregon. I knew I could not handle an inside job! I took classes at Merritt College Landscape Dept in Oakland to learn more and to improve my skills and Plant ID knowledge. I learned a whole lot just doing the work, and observing plants over the years to see how they responded to pruning, not pruning, water and weather changes, light and soil differences, companion plants, etc...
I worked alone at first, getting new clients slowly one by one, and after a few years hired an assistant to help me. When I got pregnant, I needed to take some time off, so I hired someone to replace me, and then my work became more behind the scenes.
As our family became bigger, we needed to expand so we now have 150 clients that we service regularly. We have 3 teams of 2 who work full time.
We use non-toxic supplies and organic products whenever possible. It's very important to me that as we work to make the gardens beautiful and healthy, we don't spread toxic substances into ourselves or the environment!
My home office is in the garden under 2 huge redwood trees and a fig tree. The crew meets at my home every morning and uses Trucks and Tools Green's Gardens supplies. This is a family business through and through.
I am also a musician - singer/songwriter, voice teacher and improvisor, as well as a painter. www.greenandroot.com
