Environmentally Sustainable Landscaping

Our expanded approach to landscape services includes environmentally sustainable practices that support the long-term health of your property and the surrounding community. We recycle all our green waste, often mulching and using the chips on-site, and have Bay-Friendly Qualified Landscapers on staff. We use our knowledge to minimize the impacts of conventional landscaping and to create more sustainable landscapes.

Integrated Pest Management

Our weed and pest management approach concentrates on plant health, economic and aesthetic thresholds and the least toxic method of control.  We follow bio-preferred practices, selecting biologically based products over petroleum based ones.

Water Conservation

Water Conservation is an important component of an environmentally sustainable approach to landscaping. We have the experience and capacity to help our customers conserve water in many different ways, from improving irrigation performance, to larger renovations that incorporate drought tolerant plants and drip irrigation.
