Theresa Brennan, Urban Habitat
"Switching insurance companies can seem daunting – after all, in the end it’s always a numbers game. But switching to Rancho Mesa was by far the best and easiest decision I have ever made. There is not one question or concern that Rancho Mesa can’t answer or solve. Insurance is one of those things you don’t need until you do; and Yvonne and Drew have been there every step of the way, to ensure that my employees, assets, clients and company stay protected and covered. Thanks Yvonne and Drew for being more than just my insurance company, but for being part of the Urban Habitat family.”

"We are excited to be a new client of Rancho Mesa! They have hit the ground running with excellence. I have been very impressed with how on top of it they are. They do everything with the utmost professionalism. I am even more thrilled that they were able to close 6 of our claims within the first 3 months."
Natali Navarro, Office Manager, Schnetz Landscape Inc.
“After years of open claims not being resolved and the frustration that I had to personally do all the calling and fighting for results, we decided to switch brokers to Rancho Mesa and see if they were worth it. In the first six months of being with Rancho Mesa 80% of our claims were closed or close to being closed and the remaining ones were finally being worked on and coming to resolution. I’ve since switched landscape companies and when I was told that I was going to be in charge of the insurance policies, I knew that I wanted to bring Rancho Mesa on board with me here, as well, and again they did not disappoint.”
Susan Agonia, Sterling Land Care

He has helped us save over $50,000.00/ year on insurance cost and has provided us with educational workshops and seminars that have helped us build our business.

NALP Workers' Compensation Program
The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) program was established specific for workers' compensation and the professional landscape industry.
The intent is to provide national workers' compensation expertise to a growing list of professional landscapers that value industry expansion, customer service and partnership.
Drew Garcia enlisted personal trainer, Collin Dawson from BRZN Fitness to develop a stretch program specifically designed for the landscape industry. The idea was to create a stretch program that would allow landscapers to stretch their bodies before starting their work day. The program uses the company truck to help employees achieve total body activation in minimal time, while both stretching and strengthening the key muscles that surround common industry injuries.
NALP Safe Company Program
Safety is paramount to a successful landscape company, and Federal OSHA urges all employers to have a written safety program in place. Why reinvent the wheel when it comes time to implement a safety program? Demonstrate your commitment to a safe workplace and lower your total costs of risk through reducing hazards and injuries by becoming part of the NALP Safe Company Program.
