Our Team

Paul Straus – CEO
After years of running his pool and landscape design company, Red Leaf Developments, Paul founded Green Care Exterior Maintenance. Upon completing landscaping projects for clients, he often found that they called for help on how to maintain the integrity of the vision that he helped them create. Green Care Exterior Maintenance was created as a solution to deliver comprehensive pool and landscape maintenance. As a graduate of the Landscape Architecture program at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Paul rounded out his experience by gaining both a Landscape and Pool Contractors license to become an expert in all areas of landscape, pool design and maintenance.

Nick Conway – General Manager
Nick manages the day-to-day operations of Green Care. As a Certified Pool Operator and Qualified Applicator, his extensive knowledge helps to maintain details on all jobs. Nick plays an integral part in recommending appropriate equipment for pool and landscape operations and design that focus on saving energy while protecting the environment.

Cody serves as the point of contact for our clients. He communicates with professional and friendly efficiency to ensure that both the client and the crew are on the same page. Whether you have questions about billing or have a special project in mind, Cody will be there to manage any needs that you have.

Brendan, Bryan, Modesto, and Chris – Crew Leaders
Our Crew Leaders are each assigned a client base that they service with a maintenance team. They are valued for their knowledge of landscaping and pool needs and professional communication styles. You will see them caring for your property and will receive communication from them at the end of each service session via phone, text or email to keep you informed on the progress made each day.





What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Before hiring Paul’s team at Green Care, I was constantly playing phone tag with multiple service providers to cover all my landscaping and pool care needs. It was a nightmare.

A friend of mine suggested I call Green Care, and after an initial consultation I signed up without hesitation. I now speak with one individual to have all my questions answered, and the level of professionalism and knowledge is above and beyond what I expected. I can relax knowing that Green Care is handling my property with the attention it deserves.

Green Care has exceeded my expectations as our landscape and pool maintenance provider. In addition to excellent attention to detail on my property, the team is always on time, professional, and a joy to interact with.

The crew goes above and beyond by texting me at the conclusion of each of their sessions with an outline of exactly what was done that day. It’s an incredible added service that makes me happy to be a long term client of Green Care.

When the time came for me to hire a new maintenance service, I knew what I didn’t want – another company that quickly mowed my lawn and moved on to the next house. I hired Green Care and have been thrilled with the experience!

My hedges are hand-pruned with meticulous care, and they have a crew trained in seasonal planting and pruning needs. Paul makes sure to hire and train his crew to be knowledgeable and professional, and my property has greatly benefited from their expertise.
