GreenWeaver’s designers and construction crews work together closely to deliver high quality, long lasting landscapes. From idea generation and design, to hardscape construction, all the way through plant installation, GreenWeaver’s team works with you to deliver your dream space.
Types of projects in which GreenWeaver specializes:
Whether you know exactly what you want, or just know you need help with your yard, our designers will work with you through problem solving, goal setting, and idea implementation to come up with a design that maximizes the health and appeal of your property.
GreenWeaver can design and build custom outdoor living areas such as patios and outdoor kitchens, as well as walkways, fire pits, and retaining walls. Looking for a permeable driveway? We do that too. We can help match the right material to your existing site for beauty and sense of place.
Butterflies need much more than flowers. For a successful butterfly garden, GreenWeaver will design for all phases of the butterfly life cycle. We consider host plants, as well as nectar plants, and maintenance as well as installation in all of our butterfly gardens.
Well designed landscapes are the best way to attract a variety of birds to your yard. GreenWeaver has the expertise needed to provide for our feathered friends by meeting their needs of food, shelter, and water. To learn more about the importance of creating bird habitat, read our blog article here
Wildflower meadows consist of a mix of native warm season grasses and wildflowers. Meadows add color and movement to a landscape, provide wildlife habitat, and reduce maintenance costs. Because they are only mowed once per year, meadows also reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They are an excellent alternative to lawn for low-use open space on commercial sites and homeowners associations, as well as residential properties.
As a tool to manage storm water, rain gardens also provide beauty and year-round interest to the landscape. GreenWeaver is experienced in building rain gardens for formal and country gardens, sun and shade conditions. To learn more about rain gardens, please review our educational handout.
In today’s culture of “buy fresh, buy local”, many are going even beyond that to “grow your own”. We can design anything from high-end kitchen gardens and herb gardens to inter-planting your landscape with edible plants. Our experience will pair you with edible plants you can actually maintain.
GreenWeaver specializes in tasteful, energy efficient lighting, using high-quality light fixtures and LED bulbs. GreenWeaver's designers can add functionality and style to your evening landscape.
And much, much more!Share with us your dream landscape and we will find a way to bring it to life.

Once your dream landscape has come to life, it needs a little TLC to stay looking fresh. GreenWeaver’s crews are trained in all facets of quality landscape maintenance. Whether you need traditional mowing and mulching or organic weed and pest control, we’ve got you covered.
For the healthiest turf, mowing heights vary over the season and mower blades are sharpened weekly. Each maintenance program is custom to your needs and site. Organic turf maintenance allows for a lush green lawn that’s safe for people, pets, and the planet.
Invasive plants can take over large portions of the landscape, eliminating balanced natural habitats. Many provide inadequate or no nutrition to wildlife. GreenWeaver can identify and eliminate invasive plants on your property, and provide you with a plan to keep them under control.
Compost tea introduces a wide variety of beneficial bacteria and fungi to the landscape. As a soil application it can improve water retention and reduce the need for additional fertilizing. As a foliar spray, compost tea can reduce the chance for disease. All compost teas are tested before application. To learn more about the science behind compost tea and if it could benefit your property, contact us today.
IPM is a program that controls pests using the least toxic means necessary. Identifying pests, their life cycles, and control options are all important steps to a successful IPM program. GreenWeaver uses IPM on all properties we maintain in order to provide you with a property that is healthy and beautiful.
Proper pruning reduces the chance for disease and enhances the overall shape of the trees and shrubs. GreenWeaver’s certified arborists can maintain the woody plants on your property, identify problems, and recommend solutions resulting in a vigorous, long-lasting landscape.
Snow removal and de-icing is available to commercial properties and select residential properties. De-icing material may include earth and pet safe Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA).
GreenWeaver’s staff is well educated in plant science, ecology, and design, attending regular workshops to stay current on the latest findings in the environmental and horticultural communities. If you or your organization is looking for advice on sustainable land management, please contact GreenWeaver about our Horticultural Consulting services.

Sustainable landscapes are still a relatively new concept. For years people have been concerned with reducing pesticide use, protecting plant and animal species, and improving air and water quality, but it is only in recent decades that people are applying these eco-friendly philosophies to their own properties. Whether you manage the grounds of a commercial property, school, homeowners association, or private residence, you may need some help gaining support for these changing management practices. GreenWeaver regularly gives educational presentations to commercial, civic, municipal, and private organizations. Look for us in the community speaking on some of these topics (click for PDF handouts):

It’s a great time of year to be outside. Temperatures and humidity are lower, and we don’t need to bundle up yet. If you have taken this opportunity to stroll around your property but quickly became discouraged because it looks
Have you ever noticed that most causes have a ‘poster child’ which appeals to the masses? In environmentalism, this could be an animal such as a whale, Northern Spotted Owl, or more recently Monarch Butterfly or the honeybee. While all
