President James Guay, and Vice President Linda Gottuso-Guay

Few landscape contractors earn the prestigious Diamond Certified award, which means they’ve been independently rated Highest in Quality. Even fewer can also claim more than 40 years of industry experience and hands-on owners who personally supervise every landscaping project, but that’s exactly the case for Manzanita Landscape Construction, Inc. “My husband [President James Guay] and I take pride in working alongside our crew members and customizing each project,” says Vice President Linda Gottuso-Guay. “We’re onsite all the time to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible, and our customers really appreciate that.”

Manzanita Landscape Construction designs, installs and maintains landscapes for residential clients throughout Sonoma County. In addition to installing pavers, decks, fences, and concrete and water features, the company utilizes its general building contractor’s license to offer a variety of related construction services, including custom framing, finish carpentry, and kitchen and bathroom renovations. “Instead of just installing plants in a garden, we can use our combined skills to truly enhance our customers’ landscapes,” says Mrs. Gottuso-Guay.

Unlike less experienced landscape contractors that overlook the importance of client communication and personalized service, Manzanita Landscape Construction utilizes its small size and family-oriented business practices to develop lasting relationships with its customers. “We’re a family-run business—I’m the estimator and designer, Jim is the builder, and our daughter, Heather, takes care of the office,” explains Mrs. Gottuso-Guay. “Together, we’re able to pay close attention to every job and make our customers feel like part of our family.”

To further differentiate itself from its competition, Manzanita Landscape Construction hand-selects its technicians and provides them with extensive training to ensure their expertise. “Our crew members have been with us for years,” says Mrs. Gottuso-Guay. “They’re hard workers who can handle every step of the landscaping process, which ultimately results in well-designed, well-planned gardens that our customers can enjoy for years.”
