Whitehouse Landscaping strives to practice environmentally sound
and sustainable landscaping practices.
We like to think of ourselves as a ‘green company in progress’. Changing how we think and act about the environment is the first step in our commitment to being green. We’ve made some positive environmental choices but recognize there’s always more we can do and will commit to being more earth conscious in our work and recycle habits.
One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh; but the earth abideth forever. Ecclesiastes 1:4
Environmentally friendly landscape solutions we do offer:
- Organic Fertilization – We offer a natural organic fertilizer, Holganix for your lawn. It has been proven to be effective in treating grass disease, preventing weeds and giving you greener grass and at the same time promoting healthier plants. This bio-nutritional product is good for you, your family and the planet!
- Integrated Pest Management (IPM) – We use this approach in our lawn care and tree/shrub program. Proper management practices (organic fertilization, aeration, knowledge) help us monitor pests and early intervention allows for fewer pesticides, reducing our impact on the environment. Pesticides are used only when insect and disease levels reach intolerable levels.
- Native Plants - A great sustainable addition to all landscape is the use of native plants. Native plants will require the use of less water and maintenance. See a list of native plants for your area.
- Rain Barrels and Rain Gardens – We’ll work with you installing better water management practices.
- Paver Cleaning and Sealing – Our proven Seal ‘n Lock System products are environmentally safe and eliminate the toxicity and disposal considerations associated with solvent-based sealers.
- Permeable Pavers – These functional pavers allow storm water to seep into their joints where it will naturally soak back in the ground.
Environmentally friendly business practices:
- We’ve eliminated the paper version of our newsletter and we are converting to e-mail newsletters.
- The recycling of the huge quantity of plastic pots that plants grow in enabling us to reduce our ‘eco-footprint’.
