Marty Gross, Owner and Landscape Supervisor

Marty attended St. Mary’s college in Moraga and completed classes in horticulture at Chabot College Hayward and Merritt College Oakland. After completing his college courses in 1975, he worked in the wholesale nursery industry, first as a salesman and then later as supervisor in charge of plant distribution for the states of California, Washington, Oregon and Nevada. His job duties included checking that all plant material was healthy and sent to the proper climate zones so the plants would thrive.

Next he worked for a large commercial landscape-maintenance company. His duties included supervising all aspects of garden maintenance including pruning, fertilizing, irrigation, and pest control. While there he developed the system EGL uses for all his clients today. Day sheets are created for every client that includes a complete history of what was done is done each trip and any problems that were noticed. The sheet also includes a record of all fertilizers and pest control products that were applied to the site.

In 1992 Marty opened EGL and he continues to take classes to assure that all products and procedures used by the company are up to date. He loves to travel and photograph new designs and plant materials for use at EGL.

He has been conducting business in a small area in the east bay for over 30 years. His knowledge of plants, pests and climate in this area is unmatched. “I get up in the morning happy and excited to go to work. I love what I do.”
