Our Story

Recology CleanScapes CA Landscaping Division brings over 60 years of commercial landscape maintenance experience to the San Francisco business community. The division is headed by Kevin Simons, who started his career in the early 1970s working for the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Since then, he has worked in several different climate zones, including the Southwest Desert (Palm Springs, CA), the Pacific Northwest (Portland, OR), and finally settling in San Francisco. San Francisco, he says, proves to be the most unique and challenging city for landscaping.

Simons holds a California C27 license, and maintains a Qualified Applicators License from the State of California Department of Pesticide Regulation, and has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Redlands.

The landscape crew is headed by Roberto Maya, who has worked with Simons for over 10 years in maintaining commercial landscapes in and around San Francisco. Maya has accumulated over 20 years of experience in landscaping. Maya has exceptional skills in irrigation, plant care, and turf management, and interior plant care and maintenance. His warm personality and constant smile is always welcomed by our clients, who treat Maya and his crew as an integral part of their team.
