In a word, fantastic! Bret was very busy so it took a little time to get him in to do the work but the final result was well worth the wait. His workers were very professional and cleaned up everything after each day. Bret has excellent design ideas for the landscaping and I couldn’t be happier with the result. And my neighbors are very complimentary on the work that was done. I highly recommend F...

Bret de Zordo and his gardening guru's have been a Godsend. I have not had a single negative experience over the past year-and-a-half working with FYGN. From landscape design to monthly maintenance the work has been exceptional. As a Native San Franciscan, who now lives in the heart of the Marin community, Bret brings first-hand knowledge of native and non-native plants that will thrive in this ar...

Bret is very friendly, and very knowledgeable. We visited two nurseries to help me decide on plants, and I took a long time to decide on everything and Bret was very patient. He made a preliminary plant list, and then adapted it when I eliminated some because of allergies, and we both suggested alternatives or color changes, so it was a collaborative effort in the end. Then work was delayed becaus...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Our back yard was full of boring, depressing, grey stones and a few old, out of shape plants. The pathway was just sand with some weeds in it.

Bret (the owner/operator of FYGN) is very friendly, punctual and professional. He is knowledgeable about San Francisco climates and plant-life, as well as relevant regulations (essential in San Francisco). He met with me several times (without charge) to discuss what I wanted to do with the various green spaces around the property, and was both helpfully honest about what we have to work with (giv...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Bret met with me several times (without charge) to help me strategize various projects in the front and back yard. The initial project was to replace the small jungle that was growing in our front "yard" with drought resistant succulent plants.

Bret was a pleasure to work with.  He had good ideas on plants and design.  He was enthusiastic and informed.  He was also very responsive when a few issues came up.  We got his name from Angie's List and the reviews of him were an accurate guide.

Bret came out and did a walkthrough with me, he's extremely knowledgable, straight to the point and has been very helpful (and very responsive to a barrage of email from me). We had them install a new control box for our drip irrigation system, clean up our yard and remove a number of plants that were either in bad shape, or doing more harm than good. The yard is already healthier (and better look...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Bret and his team are taking care of our yard in Mill Valley. We purchased a home (which we will not move into for a couple of months) and they started out with some cleanup and plant removal (a pretty extensive job) and are now maintaining our outdoor space, and we're planning on putting in some additional plants shortly.

We engaged Bret after our hardscaping was already installed. Probably less than ideal from an overall design perspective, but we had trouble with another landscape designer in the past, which required us to do it this way. Bret worked with this constraint well. I would say he's the kind of designer that has a vision that evolves as he goes. As mentioned by another homeowner, he didn't provide a pl...
