I’m Max and I want to help you keep your drought tolerant yard beautiful!

Desert Bloom was founded in 2017 but my experience in the field runs deep as a member of the San Diego Cactus and Succulent Society, former member of the San Diego Bonsai Club, member of the South/North Park Garden Group. and active volunteer in the succulent community.

My doctor highly recommended I reduce stress in my life so I quit my 15 year sales job in the Vespa scooter parts and accessories business, and my side gig as a wedding photographer to follow my somewhat odd but very real passion of pruning and yard beautification. My wife and I bought our 1928 Craftsman home in South Park in 2009. It was a former methamphetamine lab with a mostly dead lawn when we moved in. After we recovered financially from our home purchase, we started massively renovating our house and yard. I enrolled in woodworking classes at Palomar College (highly recommended), and continued enacting my penchant for design and composition. We had a really hard time finding anyone to take care of new xeriscape. There were lots of people willing to do the job, but not a single one of them knew anything about drought tolerant plants. After trying 4 teams of people, I started doing all the maintenance myself and fell in love.

Here at Desert Bloom, I want to use my knowledge and experience to make your yard beautifully maintained. I look forward to starting a working relationship with you!

When you can’t find me maintaining drought tolerant landscapes, I’m usually kayaking, cooking, making things out of wood for our house, riding my fully electric motorcycle, walking in local canyons, taking care of my succulents, and almost always listening to music.
