Following in the footsteps of my father who continues to work in the gardening and landscape maintenance business for over 35 years and my older brother for 15 years, I created SB Evolution Landscape in 2014 because I share their 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.

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
