I love seeing healthy, beautiful landscapes and I can upgrade and maintain them when owners are busy doing other things.
Green First! Landscaping originally started as a part-time project while I was employed full-time by big landscape maintenance companies. This is the ultimate side-hustle operation that has given me a chance to learn and practice my trade. Some extra income also helped when two kids came along.
Daily operations are handled by Vas Sladek, B.Sc., Red Seal Journeyman Landscape Horticulturist, CLT, ISA Certified Arborist, and professional landscape blogger.
