Following in the footsteps of my father who has worked in the Garden  landscape maintenance business for over thirty years, I created SB Evolution Landscape in 2014 because I share his love of nature and the outdoors. I get true satisfaction from caring for the outdoor environment and tapping into the energy the plants provide. I find great joy in realizing the beauty of a thriving landscape.

I grew up right here in Santa Barbara, graduating from Dos Pueblos High School in 2007. I went on to join the United States Marine Corps and, after completing a tour in Afghanistan and receiving an honorable discharge, I continued my education at Santa Barbara City College. With 15 years of experience in landscape maintenance, I combined my passion for the land with my business acumen and founded SB Evolution Landscape.

Most importantly, you will find that I am friendly and outgoing, with the approachable kind of personality that opens the lines of communication from the start. My clients feel comfortable describing their vision for their properties, knowing that I am receptive to their ideas and well equipped to make them a reality.

I contacted a number of companies for a major clean up in our new Santa Barbara home before deciding to go with Jorge and the crew at SB Evolution Landscape--am I am very, very happy that I did! We have 1/3 of an acre with oaks, cactus, succulents, tropical plants, ivy, dead trees, numerous invasive plants, and more, that was suffering from years of neglect. We were ready to move forward with new landscaping but needed to tear out and clean out before getting started (we are doing the bulk of the work ourselves). At our initial meeting, Jorge was punctual, polite and responsive. He listened to our plans for the garden and offered clear solutions on how to attain them. Once we finished our long and thorough walk through, he went through the yard a second time to take notes. His provided a very detailed and fair quote the following day. His crew arrived today and they did a tremendous job in the sweltering heat of one of the hottest days of the year. Not only did they tackle the though jobs (removing numerous prickly pears and very old, stubborn tree stumps), they even took the time to pick up stray weeds and bits of roots/sticks as they worked. They had fantastic attention to detail. At the end of a very long work session, the foreman asked me to walk through the property to ensure they had done everything we asked. When I pointed out a couple of oversights (there was a lot to keep track of!), they quickly took care of it. He even had me walk through a second time to make sure we were happy. Finally, when they must have been exhausted, they took another 45 minutes to clean up. A superb effort by the entire crew! Bravo and thank you to Jorge and his crew. Gabby in the office was also very polite and easy to work with. Thank you!
