“We have had a great experience working with green & growing. They do excellent work and are great about communicating any potential problems ASAP. Gregory and his team are friendly and professional. After having our backyard renovated we hired them again to build a new fence. We highly recommend them!”

“I absolutely loved working with green and growing! Gregory and his crew are not only fun to work with, but they have exceptional landscape knowledge. They cut a path for me, and the end result is stunning! I look forward to working with G&G in the future. You will not be disappointed when you hire them.”


“Greg and his team are professional, flexible and easy to work with. Greg’s extensive knowledge for landscaping really helps when you’re faced with obstacles and problems that come up. He is very solutions oriented and works to help save the client money and time. We’re glad we chose Greg for this project and will continue to work with his company in the future.”

“Green and Growing is a first class operation and very professional I have had 3 other companies attempt to “Get it right” and never did. I am in an area where it’s a challenge to find the kind of plants, shrubs etc. that work and look the way you want them to. Green and Growing has done a beautiful job in terms of plants, design, water systems. Very knowledgeable. They chose all the plants. My home requires the landscape to be high end to compliment what I have done to my home. Gregory has matched the landscaping to it. Gregory is meticulous in the installation of the water systems and the landscaping. Everything works. No system failures. Always prompt. Once they start the project the continue until they are finished. They don’t leave to another project and leave mine hanging. They also do all my maintenance and are great at maintaining what was installed. They are very responsive to my needs when I contact them. Their accounting of their work is extremely detailed so you can understand how your money is allocated. They are reasonably priced and I recommend them in the highest possible way.”

“I “inherited” Green and Growing 7 years ago when I bought my home in Capitola. The service and people have always been professional and more than accommodating to special requests I have had regarding my property maintenance. It is my pleasure to recommend Green and Growing with 5 stars!!!

The Castle Beach Annex Homeowners Association, a 7-home complex located in the Seabright area of Santa Cruz, has been served by Green & Growing Landscaping for nearly 15 years. Over that time, Green & Growing has maintained our common area grounds on a bi-weekly basis, with special attention to pruning, weeding, fertilizing and hard-scape clean-up, reliably and affordably. One of things that we most value is the very dedicated lead crew person, Ian, who takes direction well and who goes the extra measure to satisfy any special requests. Green & Growing arrives on time, gets the job done and leaves our property looking “ship shape”.

I have used this company for many years at two different houses. They have always done a great job, consulted with me on what I wanted and helped me to keep costs down. I would recommend highly recommend them.

I just wanted to take a moment to share my experience with Green and Growing. I have been using Gregory and his staff for years. He has always been responsive to my needs and kept my lawn looking healthy which is a big feat with moles and gophers to contend with. I trust them to keep my dog safe inside the yard when they come. I am always happy to pass along their name with confidence to any friends or neighbors when they ask who I use.
