Native Soil Inc was founded in 2015 based out of Oakland, CA. We specialize in landscape construction, including new irrigation systems, planting, decomposed granite, artificial turf, and natural turf installations. Our team consists of Cal Poly alumni as well as a foreman that has been in the landscape industry for over 30 years. We are family-owned and operated and can turn a set of plans into a reality within an enjoyable family work environment.
Native Soil Inc. is a construction, education, and social organization dedicated to the protection of water, plants, and soils, while empowering disenfranchised communities.
Our vision is to be the Bay Area landscape contractor of choice, fostering an educational work environment, where employees receive livable wages, are happy, and love to contribute to the enhancement of our planet and communities.
Emmanuel Gomez, a native of Oakland, California, founded Native Soil in 2015 in an effort to empower his community by providing jobs, education, and training, to those that weren’t fortunate enough to receive higher education. Emmanuel started doing landscape construction when he was 12 and saw the need for a Latino-owned landscape business as most of the labor force in this field is made up of Latinos but unfortunately not many Latinos own these businesses. Emmanuel received his Bachelors of Landscape Architecture from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, in 2013 and after a few years of managing experience with large landscape companies, he obtained his own Landscape Contractor License from the state of California. Emmanuel truly cares about instilling sustainable landscape practices and passing down any of his knowledge to his employees that can then be then passed down to our future generations, creating a planet where people are living in harmony with nature, plants, water, wildlife, bugs, and insects. Leaving a better world for our children and grandchildren.
