About Van Slyke Landscape, Inc.

It all started in 1970…

…When Marolyn & Paul started a gardening service to put themselves through college. In 1974 they purchased and operated Olivenhain Gardens Nursery and Landscaping. Sean & Bryan were raised on Marolyn’s hip working in the Nursery and learned the landscaping trade at an early age.


In 1997, Sean joined the business and in 2009, after graduating from college, Bryan joined in full time.


The Van Slyke’s family business success through the past 40+ years has been based on maintaining caring relationships with our clients, and providing distinctive landscape design, installation and garden maintenance services.
