He trains new members in safety, improves systems in the warehouse and keeps us well fed at our monthly BBQ’s. A former restaurant line cook working crazy hours, he came to Dig Right In to spend more time with his growing family and have a stable career. His favorite part of the job is “motivating and helping the crew members learn and grow”.

Drainage Consultant – started in 2017 after graduating from Loyola University studying Ecological Science. He is quickly learning the drainage aspect of landscape design, most likely due to his love of nature, rivers and paddling!
Carpentry Division Manager – started in 2015 as the assistant carpenter, then grew into the lead spot in 2016. He has become an expert in building natural wood outdoor construction and is a stickler for details. This makes him a perfect solution to the Pinterest dream dilemmas of our clients. He has 2 young boys which likely fueled his creative juices on this natural playground project.
Senior Crew Leader, Drainage – started in 2009 and can see the water flowing across our clients’ yards and knows exactly how to achieve the solution. He has over 20 years experience in landscape construction and is one of our best artists in pruning ornamental trees! He can also make any dry creek bed look like it’s been there for years.
Senior Crew Leader, Hardscape – started in 2008. He began as a junior member of the maintenance team and is now our model crew leader. Attention to detail, a solid work ethic and the ability to solve any problem puts him in a class by himself. With dedication to take evening classes after work, he became fully fluent in English in just 2 years.

Francisco “Paco” Perez

Alfredo “Freddy” Tlahuel
Technician – started in 2015. In the beginning we weren’t sure this line of work was for him but he soon proved us wrong (thankfully)! Like his buddy Paco, he also took the exam, did the road tests and earned is C license without prompting. Another young adult with a good future!
Carpenter – started in 2017. Adan has valuable experience in home remodeling that he brought to his job here at dig right in. He and Adiel form the Carpentry Dream Team. He shows up to work excited every day and we are grateful he decided to leave California!
Division Manager – was hired away from our neighbor company in 2013. He was reluctant to leave another job after 9 years with that company but we promised him a career. He has now been overseeing the maintenance team since 2016. He has 20 years of lawn care experience and loves talking to his customers. His smile and cheerful disposition makes him a natural leader for his team.
Technician – our longest held employee since 2007. Benigno is as dedicated as they come. A doting father of 5 children, he is proudly supporting his oldest in college with his long-term commitment to Dig Right In, Organic Lawn care and his team.
Tomas “Manny” Clara
Technician – started in 2017 and is managing the day-to-day maintenance tasks with Beni as Lorenzo works on sales. He has over 15 years experience in the field.
We hire for attitude before aptitude. If you know someone who is interested in taking pride in a career that brings beauty and convenience to our clients, healthy living and problem solving to themselves and restoring the Earth – then Dig Right In could be the solution.
