Chris has been amazing. This guy truly knows his plants. He’s turned our simple yard into a tropical paradise. We’ll be hiring him for more.Aug 26, 2018Verified

We agreed on a fence wall. Sealing a crack in a cement wall and trimming down a oak tree. Did a good job on the oak tree but left all the trash and wood behind. Cement wall was covered up with cement didn't use the 5k pressure sealant either. The fence was very cheap material and they also left the posts uncut so there higher than the fence itself. Also left the fence gate uninstalled. When I paid him he said he would come the next day to take the trash the next day..That's when I noticed all the other issues. He hasn't come back for the trash in my driveway and has not returned my calls since. In the end he promised a lot and did as little as possible. This was my fault for paying him before checking his work.Sep 22, 2016Verified
My wife and I have used California Jungle twice. The first time was to help sell our home, where Chris Degroote upgraded our "tired looking yard" to create new modern look that improved the curb appeal and value of our home. We sold the home for full price quickly, and received many positive first impression comments about the landscaping from buyers. Next, California Jungle did a large renovation of the next home we purchased. This included front, side and back yards with a mid-century modern theme. Chris and team built a barbecue, courtyard, and decorative, retaining walls. They upgraded the deck, added planters, and opened up our ocean views. This project took several months. Chris did a good job planning, managing a crew, and discussing many design options. We highly recommend California Jungle to improve the look and value of your home.May 11, 2017
I call Chris the "Picasso of Plants". His innovative landscape designs have already won my home 2 awards. He's designed 3 homes on our street and all are completely different. He also offers gardener maintenance. His prices are very competitive. Truth be told, you get so much more than you pay for! HIGHLY recommend.May 11, 2017
