Fred and Greg

Emerald City Landscaping has been a family-owned and operated business since 1971. Fred and Greg Jones are a father and son team, working together for many years.

Greg studied turf and horticulture at California State University Chico. Upon graduation, Greg began a career in golf course management as a golf course superintendent. Greg has worked at premier golf courses like The Reserve at Spanos Park, Seascape Golf Club, and Riverbend.

After being a superintendent for 10 years, Greg had the option of returning to Santa Cruz County to run the family business, which he has now been doing for over a decade.
