A Bay Area native, Mark has enjoyed gardening since childhood. Over the years he’s gathered a wealth of horticultural knowledge and practical landscape installation skills. While holding college degrees in both ornamental horticulture and business administration, he enjoys continuing his education through books, magazines, and training such as the Green Gardener program. Mark enjoyed the Green Gardener training, and the program has had a positive effect on his business through client referrals.

He also uses techniques taught in the Green Gardener program to make your landscape healthier and more resistant to pest problems. He believes that when a garden is built the right way, with proper soil preparation, mulching and a good irrigation, it will need less maintenance and save his clients time and money. He also places special emphasis on choosing the right plants. “Proper plant selection and placement is one of the most important ways to conserve resources and prevent pollution,” he says.
