Dear Bill and Staff:

The Park Almaden HOA Board of Directors would like to thank you for all your excellent quality of work in addressing our HOA water issues and the difficulty in keeping the landscaping drought-resistant.

We especially appreciate your efforts along with the amount of time you have put in to keeping our association a beautiful place to live.

The Villas of Almaden is a gated community of 180 homes, adjoining the Guadalupe Oak Park. Of the 48 total acres some 19 acres are landscaped while the rest remains the original natural terrain of hillsides and California native oaks.

Landscaping is by far the biggest item in our operating budget, and a Committee of nine Tract Representatives and the Committee Chair monitor all work done within that budget. Common Ground Landscape Management was awarded the Landscape Maintenance Contract some 11 years ago, and throughout that time has done an outstanding job. There is a crew of four (Foreman and three operatives) here every day, augmented by a mowing crew of three one day per week and by a specialist in irrigation whenever repairs are needed in that field. In addition the owner/general manager of CGLM, Bill Jauch is on site frequently and also attends the monthly Landscape Committee Meetings.

The result is a beautifully landscaped property which really adds to the value of all the homes, and which provides a peaceful and serene environment for our residents.

I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Common Ground Landscape Management to HOA considering the appointment of a landscape management service.

Bill Jauch and Common Ground Landscape have served our community's needs and desires successfully for more than 20 years I have lived at Creekside Oaks in Los Altos. His expertise and guidance and services have met our needs and then some. I have been on the Board of Directors in many capacities and have worked closely with Bill and his team. Or, to be more precise, Bill has worked with us over the years to guarantee a beautifully landscaped place to live. I recommend this company very highly and would be pleased to be contacted regarding any questions.
