We've been building quality residential landscapes since 1983. We install new gardens and renovate older ones in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin and San Francisco Counties. Our designs synthesize your needs and our vision. Through expert construction, our installations transform properties into dream getaways and natural habitats. We also offer lawn to edible conversions, children's and container gardens. Our approach is sustainable, low water use, and cost effective. Our beautiful hardscapes-- Patios, paths, retaining walls, fences--provide settings for California natives and Mediterranean plants that thrive here. Our crews get rave reviews. We also offer consultations to homeowners, realtors, Homeowners' Associations.

Organic and sustainable aren't terms often associated with Richmond, home to a Chevron refinery and a General Chemical plant.

Despite pouring rain, nearly 100 people gathered at Sunnyside Organic Seedlings to exchange ideas about bringing new models of food-growing to the area.
