The Green, the Bad and the Ugly

Chuck Bowen of Lawn and landscape Magazine wrote the following article:

Fourth Annual Sustainability Fair Thursday, June 20th

As you may already know, Thursday, June 20th is the day for our 4th Annual Sustainability Fair. This has been a great event for us to be able to demonstrate and explain our ongoing development of the sustainable elements of our service. We have partnered with many of our suppliers as well as the local municipal and non-profit organizations that support our efforts. In addition to a traditional trade fair with these partners, we also will be showing off and explaining all of the sustainable experimenting we are doing at our office. View a Rain Garden, Bio-Swale, Eco-Lawn, Lawn Alternatives, Drought Tolerant Plantings, Recycling Programs, Low Emission Equipment, Organic Fertilization, etc. We do not believe you will find a more comprehensive display of sustainable landscaping anywhere else.


We have partnered with IREM to present our highly popular seminar series where you can now receive Oregon Real Estate CEU recertification credit.  If you want to sign up for CEU credit, please sign up through IREM at

We will also again be serving a Delicious BBQ and beverages and will have a live band. Follow the link to sign up if you haven't already.

One of 100 Best Green Companies

At their annual Best Green Companies luncheon yesterday, Corey Peterson received Pacific Landscape Management's award as Oregon's 13th Greenest Companies.  This is our 5th year on the list and an award that we are quite proud of with our focus on helping our customers improve the sustainability of their landscapes through our service as well as our internal effort to be as "green" as possible in all of our business operations.  We are proud to have done this in some of the challenging economic times.  Sustainability is a balance of environmental protection, social acceptance and economic feasibility.  Our goal is to continue to challenge ourselves to reduce our environmental impact while maintaining beautiful landscapes at the lowest possible cost.  We believe all three objectives are achievable together.
