How We Can Help
We professionally install custom landscapes that are sustainable, functional, and beautiful. From permeable walkways & patios to artistically inspired gardens, we are here for you. Our friendly, customer oriented approach means that you’re experience throughout the process will be fun and exciting.
Native gardens are a low maintenance, water efficient choice for your landscape. The plants are perfectly adapted for our climate, provide habitat for beneficial insects and birds, and come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures. We are fortunate to live in an area that has an abundance of lovely native plants to choose from.
Rainwater Catchment Systems are an excellent way to save water and boost the health of your plants, the soil, and the environment. Harvesting systems can include rainwater holding tanks or the rain can be diverted and used directly in the landscape. On a 1,000 square foot roof, even 1 inch of rain can produce over 600 gallons of water!
Our design experts will meet with you to customize a landscape design that fits your needs. Using our knowledge of plants, soil conditions, and climate specifications, and landscaping techniques, we can design and install a landscape for you that will thrive and flourish.
Does your water bill make you wince? Don’t go another year with a lawn that limps through the summers and uses a ton of water. Meet the new California yard. Drought tolerant, low maintenance, and perfectly suited for San Luis Obispo County. Enjoy colorful displays of flowers as you kick back in your new water-wise yard.

What is Sustainable Landscaping?
Are you interested in a landscape that is long lasting, healthy, and thrives in our climate? Are you interested in using less water? Do you want to avoid synthetic herbicides and fertilizers? Or maybe you just want a landscape that is easier and less expensive to maintain? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then read on, because we want to show you how sustainable landscaping can benefit you, your neighbors, and the environment.
Basically, sustainable landscaping is all about creating a functioning ecosystem that has minimal negative effects on the environment and requires minimal input to keep it healthy. This is an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional landscaping that results in beautiful, healthy, and low impact landscapes.
What are the Principles of Sustainable Landscaping?
Minimize or remove water repelling surfaces so that rainwater can permeate into the soil and back into our groundwater basins.
Use plants that are native or well adapted to our region and climate. This results in healthier plants that require less fertilizer, water, and maintenance.
Do not use synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers. This is not only safer for the environment, it’s also safer for your children and pets who may be out playing in the yard.
Improve soil health through compost, mulch, and avoiding excessive soil disturbance and compaction.
Create an ecosystem that is modeled after the natural environment. This makes the landscape more resilient and require fewer resources to keep it healthy.
Build efficient irrigation systems that reduce excessive water usage.
Reduce the need for excessive maintenance. This saves you money and time so you can relax and enjoy your outdoor space.
Right plant, right place. Careful design and plant placement allow the plants to grow to their full natural form and improves plant health.
A Greener Way to Landscape
By following the principles of sustainable landscaping, Greener Environments will create an outdoor space for you that is healthy, environmentally friendly, and easy to care for. On top of all that, your sustainable landscape will be a beautiful and diverse garden filled with fresh flowers, interesting shapes and textures, and lovely smells. Imagine yourself relaxing in your hammock or sitting under your tree, enjoying the beauty that surrounds you while knowing that your landscape was created to work in harmony with the natural world.
