EarthCare Landscaping Team



Lisa Gates

An Oregon State Alum wth a degree in Horticulture, Lisa Gates, transplanted to the SF Bay Area several years ago to work with EarthCare Landscaping. With a background in weather-based commercial irrigation, she heads up the installation division as well as overseeing all daily operations, promoting sustainable landscaping throughout the South SF Peninsula and the Santa Clara Valley.

Lisa purchased Cal EarthCare Landscaping from the founder, Ryan Marlinghaus, in June 2014.  

Ryan established EarthCare in the mid 1990s as one of the first of its kind at the time - a landscaping company dedicated to promoting and practicing the principles of sustainable and ecologically-minded landscaping techniques. We continue to practice these methods - utilizing organic compost tea and working without pesticides in our installation and maintenance teams.

Ryan has since moved on to focus on his architectural pervious concrete, called PrettyPervious™  and 'Poured Earth', a mix of concrete and on-site soil for walls, PerkTop™. See his site, Pervious Products .

Deva Luna

Our horticulturist, manager and principal designer Deva Luna has a degree in ‘Plants and Art’ from U.C. Davis, as well as continuing studies in Permaculture, Landscape Design, and Edible Gardening. She is also a Master Gardener, lecturer, credentialed teacher, certified Greywater Installer and Bay Friendly Landscape Designer.


Ulan Garduno

Our maintenance manager, Ulan Garduno, heads up a special quarterly maintenance team of 4 long-term employees.  Working in the field for more than 25 years, Ulan is well versed in Integrated Pest Management, plant health, natural shape pruning, and irrigation maintenance.  He is a Certified Green Gardener.  Soil biology and the use of compost tea is his new passion!
