"It's been a pleasure to work with St. Francis Landscape & Gardening. Pat is knowledgable, attentive and professional. Even when we haven't called him, he comes by to make sure everything is going well. His crews are prompt, reliable, and responsive when we have questions. This has been by far our best landscaping experience."

St. Francis Landscape also specializes in designing water conservation landscapes.

St. Francis Landscape is a member of the California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA), of which Pat has served on the board of directors for the San Luis Obispo chapter - as chapter president and as chapter officer.





"Pat has talent, integrity and he's a joy to work with. He does more than what he's hired to do, which means he's also a great value."

- Rush Hiltbrand, San Luis Obispo



"Pat did a great job coordinating the hard- and soft-scape at our home. As absentee owners we are always concerned about how a job will be performed without us there. Pat not only coordinated the job, but went above and beyond our contractual agreement to create a fabulous result. It's nice to know we can still trust people to do things right."


- Tim & Lisa Dylina, San Luis Obispo
