Hi Dear Russell, Thank you for all that you are doing and have done for our trees and plants. We are most appreciative and look forward to health and longevity for the plants and a wonderful, long and healthy relationship with you and your company too … Gratefully, Jacque & all the plants & trees
In January 2018 I took a long, hard look at my yard (front and back) and saw that everything looked as though it were gasping their last breath. Something had to be done or I was going to end up replacing all the trees and plants. I was not happy since I’d been paying a gardener to come by twice a month to “take care of” my yard! So, I turned to my favorite nursery, Evergreen Nursery in Oceanside. I explained that since I didn’t have any grass I was looking for a gardener who REALLY knew trees and plants—not just a mow, blow and go guy. Without even hesitating, the person I spoke with pulled out a business card for Bowman Plant & Tree Care Specialist and said “he’s the best.”
I called Russell and set up an appointment to meet with him. He proceeded to walk through my yard naming every plant and tree, pointing out all the different insect infestations and signs of disease. (Things were worse than I thought!) I was very impressed with his level of knowledge.
He then began to describe his vision for both my back and front yards. Wow! It was clear that he was able to see the potential more than I could. The citrus trees in the back were half dead (or more) so I said I wanted him to remove them. He looked at me like I was crazy! He then smiled and said, “No, no, no. I can bring them back to life.” Now it was my turn to look at him like he was crazy!
As it turns out, he was right. My orange and lemon trees have never looked this healthy since we moved in 6 years ago. The avocado tree actually has avocados on it this year!
My poor, sad looking plants and trees have come alive with new vigor! I love the vision Russell had for my yard and how, with just a few changes, and the addition of what we call “Russell’s joy juice” (fertilizer tank) my yard has been completely transformed. I even hosted the Carlsbad Garden Club summer social luncheon to show off how beautiful it has become. Needless to say, they were quite impressed!
Russell talked me into taking out some of the duller, succulent plants I had and replacing them with rose bushes. Me? Grow roses? Uh.. I don’t think so. Boy was I wrong! I now have a little piece of paradise in my own back yard and relish spending more and more time outside enjoying my beautiful rose garden and the fine work of Russell and his team. I can’t say enough about the breadth and depth of knowledge they have demonstrated over the past several months. They are easy to communicate with and extremely responsive whenever I have a question.
Without reservations, I highly recommend Russell Bowman Plant & Tree Care Specialists!

“This company is FANTASTIC! Russell is extremely talented and provided me with the vision and solution.
I had five huge over grown trees in my tiny patio, and he removed them and replaced the area with baby palms. The patio looks great and we love it! The pricing was very reasonable and a formal quote was presented.
Russell’s crew works very hard and fast, and the place was left spotless. I plan to cal Russell for future work. I’m telling all of my friends about this company and the great service.” – Dee W., Vista, CA
