It's about our vision for reshaping the landscaping industry. By eliminating the conflict between “what’s best for customers” and “what’s best for the environment,” we want to change the way people think about sustainability.
- Use of propane mowers
- Use of battery handheld equipment
- Trailers equipped with solar panels
- Monitoring irrigation systems for reduction in water use
- Installing native plans and perennials when possible
- Promotion of local hardscape material for construction projects.
- Composting landscape waste
- Recycling plastic plant containers
- Fertilizer program with organic compounds
- Promotion of broadleaf weed spot spray (rather than broadcast).
- Use deicing materials only as necessary - applying them at the right time and right amounts
- Combining liquid and rock salt (which is better for the environment)
- Grow our own vegetable garden at the corporate office
- We change mowing patterns to reduce soil compaction
- We use only locally sourced mulch to reduce transportation emissions and cost
- Integrated pest management (which is a cost effective approach that uses predator insects and other environmentally based tools to prevent or minimize infestations)
- Paperless time keeping system
- GPS equipped fleet so we can create the most efficient routes which reserves fuel
