About The Growing Company

When we opened our doors in 1988, owners Bruno and Anne Sandoval had a clear vision for the company: deliver creative, cost-effective solutions with extraordinary service at a competitive price.

Today, The Growing Company is Northern California’s premier commercial landscape maintenance company.

We never stand still – we work continuously to improve our knowledge, skills and systems. Ongoing education keeps our people at the forefront of new information and technology. We value long-term relationships – our connections with clients, vendors and staff often span years, even decades.
