Kelly Grn did landscaping work in our backyard, following a design made by another firm. The work involved the construction of terracing on a slope, with two interlocking block retaining walls, installation of flagstone steps down the slope, and a walkway, extension of existing irrigation system and planting of native plants.

John, at Kelly Grn, was a pleasure to work with, and the small crew he brought in was also very nice. During the work, we asked for a couple of corrections and changes, and these were never a problem. He always arrived when he said he would, kept us informed about progress and next steps, and kept the work moving along briskly. He also did a few things, like adding in stones along the edge of the path, that went beyond the contract and improved the final result. We are very happy with how the project came out, and we liked Kelly Grn so much that we hired them to take over maintenance of our yard.

We were very happy with the work John and his team did for us. He is really easy to work with and got the project done in the time he said he would. They also designed our yard and have a great ascetic. He is very knowledgeable about California natives and water conservation. At his recommendation we got rain harvesting tanks and love that we are using rain water for our veggie garden. Highly recommend them!!

"Kelly Grn transformed our backyard for us.  We were looking to make it more kid friendly and KellyGrn helped us to accomplish that while still making it a beautiful place for adults to hangout. They listened to what was important to us and gave unique creative ideas to achieve those goals. We all love our new backyard!"

"The work Kelly Grn did at my house was excellent. They were so good about listening to what I wanted and making it happen...even with last minute changes I wanted to make. In the area where I live, frost is a big concern during the winter months and they did a great job of researching plants which not only could withstand the cold temperature but also looked good in the yard."

"John Corning is easy to work with, has a good aesthetic sense and is very reliable. He will make sure details are completed and will put in the extra effort to ensure clients are happy. He knows his native plants and has a professional approach to hardscaping and other project aspects. I just finished a job with him and it went so smoothly. I knew the client was in good hands."

John and his crew created a new front yard for us using drought resistant plants. We had a 40 year old yard and they did an awesome  job. We are so happy with the outcome of our new yard.   John is very professional and answered every question. -Cecily G. | San Diego, CA
