Sure, we recycle and compost … green clippings and snippings, paper, cardboard, wood, metal, glass and plastic. But how many other landscape companies make their own compost tea?

“To do green well, you gotta BE green,” says Dean DeSantis, the second-generation owner (and former Peace Corp guy with a passion for beekeeping.) “Our commitment to sustainability has become the foundation of our company. It goes beyond our commitment to natural landscaping practices and into the day-to-day operations of our business.”
