We design on the premise that nature nurtures: as humans, we delight and benefit in our daily greenery, in observing a bird nesting or a butterfly drinking nectar. So on that premise, the chemical diet of traditional landscaping doesn’t cut it.
Chemical pesticides and herbicides are indiscriminate in their attack, destroying soil microbiology and polluting waterways and aquatic life with runoff. Synthetic fertilizers are a quick fix feed for plants, but do nothing for the plant’s immune system or lasting health. What’s more, there is simply not enough research on the long-term effects of these toxic exposures on human and pet health.
At Green Jay Landscaping, we believe that your landscape deserves a whole-system, holistic approach to maintenance and management. Our team members are NOFA Accredited Organic Land Care Professionals and approved contractors for the Bedford 2020 Healthy Yard Program, Rye Healthy Yard Program, and the Pollinator Pathway Project.
We offer Organic Landscape Management for only a select group of estate clients. For most of our landscape design & build clients, we recommend local organic maintenance providers in Westchester, Fairfield, and Putnam counties.
For select landscape design & build clients, we offer ecological, organic estate management.
