    Smart Yards cares about my yard, the environment, their workers, our planet and my budget.

    I chose Smart Yards because they do excellent landscaping and garden management work at a fair price and because I want to live in a world that’s as workable and as fair as possible for everyone. I buy fair and direct trade coffee. I never patronize Walmart, Starbucks, fast food shops or big box book stores and it’s very important to me that I avoid home service providing businesses who pay low wages to the employees who actually provide their services.

    Proud to be doing my part to conserve water, energy and to create a habitat butterflies and bees!

    Today Wade and I welcome 42 tender and beautiful California native plants to our front yard brought to us with love and ecologically sound practices by the fabulous Elizabeth Sarmiento and her Smart Yards Cooperative team. Can’t wait to see them bloom this coming spring and watch them grow!

    I prefer to think of the drudgery of doing another load of laundry as happily watering the trees

    Smart Yards Co-op designed and installed our back and front yards. The transformation from boring grass, well mostly weeds, was dramatic. Smart Yards installed all native shrubs and and plants. The bees, butterflies, and humming birds love the yard almost as much as we do. Smart Yards also planted dwarf fruit trees and installed a grey water system to provide water to the trees. Smart Yards designed a delightful native garden with fine stone work for access and outdoor enjoyment. I highly recommend Smart Yards Co-op

    We're extremely pleased with the result and our choice of SmartYard Coop

    Smart Yards transformed our backyard with a well-executed, distinctive design. We had water conservation and California drought-resistant plants in mind. After discussing various options, Elizabeth created a design integrating flagstone breakers, pebble walkways and islands of plants that made the concept come alive. Her crew, led by Ramino, worked very hard, with great skill installing the irrigation system and doing the precision stone work. All were a pleasure to work with.
