Operating from the garage of their home in the San Fernando Valley, Richard and Charlene Angelo launched Stay Green Inc. in 1970 with one truck, a handful of residential customers, and a vision for providing the best landscape services anywhere.
Richard’s sense of professionalism guaranteed his customers’ satisfaction, and the business grew quickly through referrals.
Today, that same passion for quality and service infuses everything we do at Stay Green Inc. Headquartered in Santa Clarita, our company now has more than 300 employees working in five divisions – Landscape Maintenance, Plant Health Care, Tree Care, Water Management Services, and Landscape Design/Build Services. The company serves clients throughout Southern California, and exercises positive environmental stewardship through its Sustainability Practices, which are applied across all service lines to help customers protect the environment as well as the bottom line.
Stay Green Inc. is recognized as a leading provider of high-quality landscape services, having achieved a 95 percent customer retention rate, along with receiving the industry’s most prestigious awards.
A new generation is leading the way forward at our family-run company. Rich’s son Chris was promoted to chief executive officer in 2009. Under his leadership, Stay Green is moving into new markets in Southern California while building on its reputation for quality and service. Stay Green is also taking a leadership role in the landscape industry, developing cutting-edge tools and methods to promote sustainability.
Rich remains actively involved with the company and he can often be found in the field talking with crew members.
