Who We Are, What We Do, & Who We Do it For
Throughout the project it was an honor to work with the Greener Environments team, and we are happy to recommend them without reservation. – Phil W. in San Luis Obispo
Who We Are
Greener Environments Landscaping was started by Luke and Melody Huskey with the goal of setting a new standard for sustainable landscaping services in San Luis Obispo County. We are dedicated to providing the Central Coast with eye-catching, colorful, earth-friendly landscaping, and giving our clients a remarkable experience.
Luke’s background is in sustainable landscape construction and organic agriculture, as well as non-profit environmental work. He is dedicated to helping our communities in SLO County by adding natural beauty and increasing the sustainability of our neighborhoods and cities. In 2017, Luke was recognized by the SLO Tribune with a Top 20 Under 40 award for the work he has done through Greener Environments.
Melody has an extensive background in landscape design and horticulture. Through studying at Cal Poly and years of real-world design experience, she has developed an exceptional design sense. Her designs blend artistry and function and set the stage for a completed landscape that is stunningly beautiful while being low maintenance, water efficient, and environmentally friendly.
Greener Environments has been featured in magazines such as “Design/Build”, “Lawn & Landscape”, and “Total Landscape Care” and has won multiple awards for customer service and for sustainable landscaping. To put it simply, our mission is to build the best landscapes, provide the best customer experience, and use our business to help the environment.
What We Do
Our focus is on landscaping that is as easy on the eyes as it is on the earth. From lawn removals to rainwater harvesting to permeable hardscaping, we are here to serve you by providing water conservation and Eco-friendly outdoor solutions for the Central Coast.
Our enthusiasm and love for what we do shows in the work we perform and in the way we interact with our customers. It’s this enthusiasm that drives us to continually strive to provide you with outstanding service and extraordinary results time after time.
In addition to being a landscape design and installation company, Greener Environments is also an educational company. We provide resources for SLO County residents to learn about sustainable landscaping, water conservation, and environmental issues.
To take advantage of our educational resources, you can check our events page to find an upcoming workshop, read one of our guidebooks such as “The Consumer Guide to Landscaping” or “Rainwater Harvesting in SLO County”, and look for our published articles in local newspapers and our blog.
Who We Do It For
Our landscaping clients are as diverse as the landscapes we build for them, but they all tend to share some common qualities and wishes.
First and foremost, they want landscaping that will add to the beauty of their property and increase their enjoyment of their outdoor space. They want it to be low maintenance, have plenty of color, and appear professionally designed.
Our clients want landscaping that is built to last. They recognize that quality work will save them money in the long run and reduce ongoing issues. They prefer to hire a specialty landscape company rather than a company that treats it’s clients and it’s services as “just another job”.
Our clients also want their landscaping to be functional. They want it to save water and create habitat for butterflies and birds. They want it to increase permeability, reduce pollution, and sequester carbon. They want to grow food. They want to have a relaxing space to entertain guests. They want to add to the natural beauty of their neighborhood.
We are as obsessed with building the best landscapes as we are with making our clients happy. It’s an honor to be able to provide this service to our clients.
Luke and Melody were great to work with, from the beginning of our project to the end. They are both very personable and very easy to work with. They showed their professionalism in all aspects of our project, and they we very helpful in guiding us with our ideas while using their own expertise in the field. We are very pleased with the landscaping they created for us, and would definitely call on them again!! – Teresa Doty in Grover Beach
