ABOUT OUTSIDE MATTERS LANDSCAPING
When Gregg was growing up in the South Bay, he would take backpacking trips through the Sierras with his dad. Those trips were his first real exposure to all of the natural beauty California has to offer. He started working in landscaping when he was twelve, and on his days off he worked for his brother, a general contractor. These childhood experiences inspired him to pursue an education at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Ornamental Horticulture.
After graduation, Gregg returned to work in construction for his brother’s general contracting company, Hoffman & Associates. His various responsibilities included framing, masonry, concrete, plumbing, stucco, carpentry and landscaping. The heavy construction experience Gregg gained during this job would serve him well in his future enterprises.
Gregg and Gina married in 1994, and by 1995 they were ready to embark on two big adventures: starting a family and owning their own landscaping business. Over the last twenty years, both their business and their family have grown, but what remains the same are the values and principles that the company brings to every project: Outside Matters. The name of the company itself reflects their mission to building a lifestyle that combines aesthetics, sustainability and usability for every client.
With Gregg out in the field and Gina running the office, Outside Matters has flourished—they work together on small residential projects and large commercial plans alike. Outside Matters is pioneering efforts in sustainable green roof and wall installations and is trailblazing know-how to build these impressive gardens more effectively and efficiently. With passion, know-how and hard work, Outside Matters brings clients to the cutting-edge of high-end landscape technology and trends, helping them realize their outdoor visions from start to finish.
