Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I grew up in Julian, CA, a simple town known for its apple pie, wild rugged terrain, and seasonal mountain snow. At a young age I gardened with my grandfather in his ever evolving backyard. His quarter acre had fruit trees, seasonal row crops and over 100 different types of roses to keep my grandmother happy. He taught me many things of importance but the most critical was "love what you do and do it with passion!" Naturally upon high school graduation I attended California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, where I majored in Agriculture Science and minored in Horticulture and Residential Landscape Design. At Cal Poly I was professionally trained in horticulture, arboriculture, plant materials, botany, irrigation design, landscape construction, residential landscape design, and environmental decision making to name a few! At Cal Poly my talents grew, my limits were tested, but my heart stayed true to my passion for landscaping..

We started in this industry in 2009.

HELIX Landscaping is amazing! John Arney designed a gorgeous plot of land on the street side of my house. He listened to what I wanted, made a detailed drawing, personally attended to making sure to deliver top quality process and result. He is an artist that is highly knowledgable about plants, water systems and sustainable gardening. It was an excellent all around experience.

Zach was fantastic. He and his crew did a great job once he had finished the design. He was very proactive in the design and incorporated features that he thought would fit our lifestyle and the final result looks fantastic. His advice on drought friendly plantings and approaches, US/local sourcing, and "feel" for the customer and the design space was great. It did take a little longer than expected, but it was worth it. He even fixed a couple major code violations that the home builder had made when the house was built for no additional fee! I highly recommend these guys.

Zach is a great designer. He is very knowledgeable and really listens to what you want. He helps us to put our ideas into real thing. His workers are careful and leave no mess. Best of all, he DOES guarantee his work. We had problems that some of our plants didn���t make it and he comes to replace and fix them. He is not the type that he ignores you when he gets your money. .

We loved that Zach had a degree in Horticulture and gave us expert advise on accomplishing our project. We completely redid our front yard adding a wall, lighting, sod, irrigation, and plants. We were happy that he reused some of our existing plants and stone in his design which saved us money. We had several quotes and were blessed to have made the right choice with Living Green Design. Highly Recommended, The Mata Family

One of the reasons I used him, he had degree in horticulture. I had five different contractors come about the work, they were all sellers. He came and knows the work, was excellent.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
