Founder & CEO
Born and raised in the Santa Cruz mountains, Gregory has 18 years’ experience in the California landscape industry. His extensive knowledge of the construction process, passion for composition and design, and hands-on approach can be traced back to his early youth, when he developed a fascination for land development sites that surrounded his family’s home. As a child he spent every daylight hour playing outdoors in the woods, and later, surfing the waves of the Pacific Ocean.Gregory is a skillful communicator and encourages his clients to participate in the creative process. His balanced approach blends clients’ visions with their home’s architectural style and the best use of their land. He has been a resident of Santa Barbara for 10 years and lives there now with his wife and two dogs.
Lorena Flores has been with Cornerstone Landscapes since 2013. She earned her Associates degree in Accounting and Business Administration from Santa Barbara City College. Lorena has developed long-term professional relationships in the construction industry thanks to her reliable work ethic and eagle eye for detail. She leads Cornerstone’s administrative organization, assists the safety program, and leads human resources, payroll, bookkeeping, and insurance compliance.
Rob Horibe has worked with landscape and general contractors for over 25 years. For a decade he has overseen and executed complex construction projects from start to finish. From horticulture and landscape maintenance, to landscape installation and construction, Rob is highly skilled in multiple trades. Perhaps his greatest asset is staying calm under pressure, meeting critical timelines while fostering the spirit of unity amongst the team.
“It is a pleasure to work with someone as competent, honest and ethical as Gregory, and I would highly recommend him for any landscape-related project.”
– Bob S., Homeowner
