Dan's Landscaping
Daniel Phillips, Owner/Landscaper
Dan Phillips founded his company, Dan’s Landscaping, in 2001, in San Francisco, CA.  He received his education in environmental horticulture and landscape design from SF City College (with author and SF League of Urban Gardeners founder, Pam Pierce) and Merritt College in Oakland, CA.  While in school, Dan began his career in landscape design as an apprentice for Gregg Wolford.  Working alongside this well-known landscape designer, Dan was afforded many opportunities to install and later design high-end urban gardens throughout the Bay Area.
Some of the accolades Dan has received in his profession include awards from the esteemed San Francisco Flower & Garden Show: a Bronze Medal for "Backyard Holiday" in his first year as a garden creator, a Silver Medal for "California Hypnotropic" on his second outing and for his third year, a Silver Medal and Best Design of Show Award for "Moonriver".  The exposure at this highly attended show led to being featured in San Francisco’s 7x7 Magazine as one of SF designers to watch and serve as an occasional guest on the HGTV show, "Curb Appeal".
Dan moved back home to Grand Rapids, in 2014 to be closer to family and to focus more on the deep passion he has for environmental stewardship.  He has been reacquainting
himself with the native plants and regional characteristics of west Michigan (becoming a member of the River City Wild Ones Native Plant group and a Master Naturalist through Michigan State University in 2016) and is excited to pursue his dream of being a native plant grower. Dan also is inspired to bring his many years of experience in design, installation and maintenance while building and growing his nursery business.

Good Earth Tree Care, LLC
Brett and Sara Nelson, Owners
Good Earth Tree Care began as a dinner table discussion. Owner, Brett Nelson, and his wife, Sara, often wondered how to connect their love of the earth with their passion for their community. In their urban neighborhood Brett and Sara have noticed a seeming disconnect between people and their surrounding environment. Nobody looks UP anymore!
Good Earth Tree Care seeks to preserve and beautify the urban canopy in two ways. First, we offer the highest quality tree care services backed by experience and a high standard for safety. And second, we want to plant seeds of opportunity through employment for those in our community who may have been overlooked by our society in the past. In this way, we hope to increase knowledge of and respect for the earth in our neighborhoods.

Good Earth Tree Care cares about your trees, our neighborhoods, and our neighbors. Please join us as we strive to keep our earth as it was intended, GOOD. And, take the time to look UP!
