I not only work for RCMI but am also a tenant in one of their apartment complexes, this gives me the opportunity to see multiple properties that Evolution does throughout the week. They have surpassed all expectations we've had. from making the property look better with each week that passes to making it more enjoyable to walk around. I'm looking forward to seeing how the properties will look in the future.

They provide great service. They are always checking in to see if there is something they can do differently or better. We appreciate their attention and follow up.

Rachael Quisel

We're very pleased with the work Evolution Landscapes does on our vacation rental property, La Maison Santa Barbara. The crew is punctual and consistently does great work. We received a detailed quote before work started, and have really appreciated the professionalism from the company. They are open to feedback and make great suggestions to keep our outdoor area looking spectacular. You're not going to find a more reasonable and friendly landscape company than this!

Jorge and his team from SB evolution have cared for our yard for over a year now. Jorge is very committed to customer satisfaction, his office team is professional and the landscape crew are hardworking and provide personalized care. SB Evolution has been responsive to all of my needs, whether it be a billing question or an irrigation issue, response time is prompt, needs gets addressed and the job always gets done well. Jorge is very invested in ensuring customers are satisfied and quality work is being done. He runs a great business with good people.

I am a new (and extremely happy) customer with SB Evolution Landscape. Jorge is great to work with and his crew is amazing! Jorge was quick to respond to my request for a clean up project estimate and interest in on-going maintenance work. Jorge came out for an estimate over the weekend and we were able to schedule and complete the work within two weeks. He was right on target with his estimate and the work was completed beyond our satisfaction. I'm so happy I chose SB Evolution Landscape, we're happy with the project they completed and are now looking forward to seeing them bi-weekly for on going maintenance. Thanks!

SB Evolution has been doing my monthly yard maintenance for about 18 months; I have also used them for several landscaping jobs during that time.On the whole, I've been very pleased by my experience with SB Evolution. They're good communicators, always making sure I know about changes of schedule or crew composition. Their bids are thorough and they take time to meet in person to understand my needs before bidding on any work.They do thorough, thoughtful maintenance; they've never treated a plant wrong that I am aware of and the yard generally looks neat and well trimmed. Their maintenance crews are courteous, friendly, and although I mostly leave them to their own judgement, they're responsive to my suggestions and requests when I have them.The quality of their landscaping work is impressive to me: irrigation is all done in a handsome and professional manner; soil removal happens quickly and with minimal noise; the quality of their planting is especially good, with individual gopher cages to protect any plant that is at risk.I was very appreciative that Jorge, the owner, was willing to work with me on a large hardscaping project in my front yard, allowing me to do as much of the work myself as I wanted in order to keep costs down, and to hire his crew for some of the labor-intensive or tricky bits. He gave me good advice about how to do the hardscaping on my own, essentially laying out exactly what his crew would have done. He also managed the Marborg dumpster scheduling, even for my parts of the job, leaving me free to focus on the work itself.On one occasion a crew damaged some drip irrigation lines during maintenance work, but SB Evolution fixed it at no charge to me when I reported it to them. In fact, I'm hiring them to replace the irrigation lines in question, because all of the irrigation work they install is well concealed, stays put and generally remains free of leaks!While SB Evolution isn't the cheapest landscaping service in town, they provide great service and considering the level of quality, customer service and professionalism they bring to the table, they're a far better value than the cheaper outfits.

Audie Dewey

Because of SB Evolution Landscape, now I actually enjoy looking out my window every day. Before they got here the place was a horrific jungle of persistent weeds and other crud. The work commenced almost immediately, and was completed quickly, efficiently, and professionally. No mess was left behind - in fact, they even offered, for a very reasonable fee, to cart away some of the industrial garbage. All in all, SB Evolution Landscape is very reasonably priced,of the other landscaper and much easier to deal with than some of the other landscapers out there. Highly recommended.

Fletcher Phillips

Jorge and his crew are professionals, reliable, do excellent work and are reasonably priced. Beside general lawn renovation they have installed drip irrigation systems for me. He makes a point of understanding in advance what you want done in detail

Mason Matthews

SB Evolution Landscape went above and beyond with irrigation repairs at my organization. We have a large site with an outdated system but Jorge's crew had no problem detecting and fixing every leak. The cost was very reasonable and they even returned free of charge when an additional leak was detected after the fact. These guys are the real deal!

Natasha Burton

We decided not to have a gardener when we moved into our new home three years ago, so by the time we called Jorge we were in dire need of a major clean-up. His crew did an amazing job—our front and back yards were transformed in two days! And now they come twice a month to do the upkeep.Not only is the service spectacular but Jorge is so great to work with: He's responsive, his prices are fair and he goes above and beyond to make sure his customers are satisfied. Really appreciate his way of doing business and the awesome service he and his team provide.

Jessica Anticouni

SB Evolution Landscape was the perfect fit for my landscaping needs. They were able to get the project I requested completed in a couple hours, just days after I first reached out to the company. I will definitely use their services again! Thank you Jorge and his team!

Nicholas Harris

Fantastic workers. Two men showed up at my door bright and early Saturday morning to clear my overgrown backyard. They took their time and did it right. They were very professional, and very precise. Thanks guys

Tracy Ryan

Being new the the West Coast, I wanted to find a landscaping company with a great understanding of how to choose the best landscape design and plants for the climate. A neighbor recommended SB Evolution Landscape, so I hired them right away. When we spoke on the phone, they were friendly and professional. We made the decisions we needed to make, and the crew arrived a few days later to begin the work on my new home.The crew that came were great; very friendly, and they double checked on anything that wasn't totally clear. They were efficient and their skill was evident. It's not often that you meet a company that is professional and pleasant all around, but these guys are fantastic. They are so good at what they do!I've now been using them for a few months, and they have continued to be reliable, easy to work with, and they deliver quality work each and every time. I would definitely recommend them to others in the area.

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!

Mary Pritchard

SB Evolution Landscape's team, headed by Antonio, was effective, efficient, and responsive to my requests. I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for a quality team.

Rick Bennett

I have been using SB Evolution for more than year and am very satisfied with their professionalism. A crew of 3 arrives weekly and takes care of my lawns and weeds & cleans around the outside of the house so I can use the time to address larger issues.

Vicki DeBruyn Kops

SB Evolution landscape did a fantastic job and were very friendly, I would recommend them for any landscaping needs you have. Thank you !

karen oxholm

I loved meeting Jorge who helped transform my backyard into a place we can enjoy. The landscapers were all professional, and did a great job. I will use them again in the near future. I would highly recommend this company! Thank you to Jorge and his team!I have been using SB Evolution Landscape for awhile now and am always impressed with their work, quick answers to my questions and desire to achieve the goals of the client. Recently, Antonio brought out a crew to lay a weed barrier. The crew came, cleaned up and left my backyard looking fabulous. I really appreciate their skills and ideas. Thanks so much for my beautiful backyard.

Thomas Boland

This firm was recommended to me by a leading local nursury. They exceeded my expectations. Jorge, the CEO promptly respoded to my phone call and quickly produced a detailed proposal. I found their prices fair and their work was very high quality. I will use them again.


We met the owner, Jorge, as a volunteer event "Looking Good Santa Barbara". We were impressed by this young man's enthusiasm and willingness to use his Saturday volunteering in the community. As a military veteran and a Santa Barbara native, Jorge brings a love for his home town and desire to improve into all he does. His team is conscientious, on time and very thorough in their care and clean up for our yard. I am particular about my garden landscape and happy to recommend SB Evolution Landscape services

Gary Davenport

Started using SB Evolution the first of the year, and have been pleased with their work, completing work in the yard I wanted to be completed. Last week I called and asked for a crew to come to the site and clean up and trim some trees, getting ready for the annual Spring Cleanup in Mission Canyon. I was given a separate contract and bid for this extra work. The crew came on time and worked very hard to clean up the property and get the trimmings ready for the June 2 chipping. When the work was completed, I walked the property with the crew leader and there were some small areas that I had wanted completed and the crew finished up the work to my satisfaction. I also had four Japanese Maple trees in pots that I needed to be placed in the ground. They placed gopher screens in the hole and planted the trees, which are now doing very well. I am glad I chose this company to kept the maintenance on my property. My property is now also ready for the fire season. Thank you SB Evolution

Dyllan Nordholm

Just met the new crew leader Sam. He was very professional and polite. Him and the two other boys he was with didnt stop working at quick pace tending to everything I asked of them the whole time they were here. Sam, Juan, and Anthony really went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you for your hard work and attention to detail, Dyllan

sara mahar

They have just completed some grass removal and mowing. An excellent job with straight lines and cleaned up very nicely. Thanks again and we will see you next time.

Josua Santana

Friendly crew Reliable Great work ethic We needed new gardeners at our place of business. We hired these guys and from the very beginning they were on top of everything. They started doing it in sections. Slowly but surely they did an amazing job. The guy in charge working in our buildings (Arturo) definitely knows how to communicate. Anything we ask from him or his crew they go above and beyond. Not just writing this because I get along with the guy, but because they have definitely changed the property I work at. Every Tuesday from 7:30 to 12 always on time.

Blake Parsons

Jorge and the SB Evolution team did an awesome job and we are very happy with the outcome of our project. They did a general clean up of our entire yard and put new chips on all un-planted areas. I would most definitely use them for additional jobs.

Nina Davies

Dwight and his team are transforming our overgrown, dying yard into the love space we like to enjoy. The irrigation team is updating our 15 year old systems for much less than other estimates. Jorge and his team are timely, polite, and so easy to work with. I highly recommend SBEvolution Landscape.

David Stowell

Jorge Cortez runs a great business. He is professional, communicates well, and his team showed up early, worked hard and made every effort to satisfy. This is a terrific group!
