Working with Adam was easy he was very responsive. We scheduled a time for him to evaluate my project, and he was able to schedule it for me soon after. He's ery professional, and did a great job for a good price. I recommend Great Green Gardening for anyone to check outMay 29, 2020Verified

Adam worked on our church's garden/landscape and we are very happy with his work. He was thorough and really knows his plants. I appreciated his suggestions on how we can improve what we have. We are planning to use him for maintenance of the landscape.Sep 19, 2017Verified

Adam did a good job, and showed up when he said he would. The work required brute force and also some finesse. He seems very able with both. The price was reasonable. Very pleased with the service.Jul 1, 2019VerifiedGreat Green Gardening Services's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have different rates for different types of work. I charge $65 an hour, per person, for landscape maintenance in San Francisco, Marin County and East Bay, and $75 an hour, per person, for landscape designs and installations. For all areas, I have a 2 hour minimum per job, no matter how small. Prices can change without notice A $750 deposit will be required to draw up landscape plans and will be refunded only if my bid on the job is accepted
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, I need to come out and physically see the property. I can not and will not give you a quote without physically seeing the job first. I can only give estimates with photos only. If it is a job for maintenance I can usually give you an estimate on the spot. If it is a landscape design or installation job, I will need to come out and view the property, most likely a few times, take measurements and draw up a set landscape plans with a bid. A $750 deposit is required for me to design and draw up a set of landscaping plans which will be refunded only if my quote is accepted.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I first got into horticulture when I was 11 years old. I started growing cherry tomatoes in my bedroom window. I was amazed at how plants grew and reacted to the different types of growing conditions. I would later move on to study horticulture in college. I have taken all the required horticulture classes to get my AS, I just never saw the point about what an AS degree in this field will get you. The horticulture field has more to do with what practical experience then what type of grades you get in class. During the recession I went back to school to study landscape architecture at West Valley College in Saratoga. I was studying landscape architecture for about 2 years and then I realized that this type of work wasn't for me. I wanted to spend the majority of my time working outdoors with plants and less inside. I also
