JIM KNOLL, Home Owner

The staff of Korotkin Associates are a pleasure to work with. They are professional in tone and manner and very creative in solving “greening” projects, particularly in working with the City of San Francisco street guidelines. We enjoy working with them and would hire them again when we have additional projects.

If you want to hire an excellent firm to manage and maintain existing landscapes and/or implement landscape renovations, look no further. Our Landscape Architectural firm of Camp and Camp Associates Inc. has had the privilege of working with Sharon and her staff for nearly 30 years.

TERRENCE CAMP RLA ASLA, Camp and Camp Associates Inc.

Korotkin Associates artfully designed, installed, and, for several years, prior to the sale of the property, maintained an elaborate landscape scheme (roof gardens, street level gardens, hanging gardens in courtyard) for the Pierre Suites, a 32 unit corporate apartment complex on Nob Hill, San Francisco.

MICHAEL NATHAN HARRIS, Founder, Visual Ambrosia

Sharon is a creative gardener, who never tires of coming up with new solutions. For example, we had a problem with vines attacking our neighbor’s house. Sharon’s solution was to attach huge pieces of plastic sheeting attached to the back of a trellis fence. Even with the bare fence you can’t see the plastic. And when it’s covered with vines, it will be completely invisible. Meanwhile, the neighbor is happy.


We are pleased to have
worked with these Companies
