As second generation family farmers, we believe in environmental solutions that make economic sense. Good stewardship of our natural resources is good business. We have made substantial investments in solar and water recycling systems, and will continue to use as few resources as possible to grow excellent quality landscape trees, shrubs, groundcovers and grasses, which work naturally to clean our water and air.
Nearly 100% of our nursery’s energy usage is off-set by on-farm solar generation. This includes our offices, greenhouses, shops, and garden center. We have installed 1800 solar panels, which produced nearly 1,000 megawatts per year. View our solar field output.
We have built a water retention and recycling facility. This has reduced our water use by 25%, by recycling approximately 500,000 gallons of water per day during the growing season.
We turn all of our clippings, pallets, and wood waste into compost. That mulch is blended into our soil mix, ensuring no green waste is sent to the landfill.
