"Your Services List is so long!
How do I navigate?"
It is long, yes — please, be excited!
Every piece of land on which grEnz works is one in which grEnz looks out for needs and opportunities to holistically integrate any and all of these services and will relay these options to you as our client. This is why we highly encourage you to actively engage with your project by hiring grEnz to consult you from the early stages of your project, so that you may have the facts to decide whether these recommendations are worthwhile prior to beginning to invest (further) in your land.
This way, grEnz empowers clients to efficiently move toward a more
holistic and long-term vision for your landscape, without
wasting money on distractions and pricey up-sells by contractors who are primarily interested in short-term exploits that conform to their individual capabilities rather than the land's long-term benefit.
There also is some overlap between services, and more broadly, doing more at a given time is cost-efficient. In order to achieve long-term, comprehensive, and lasting outcomes for your land, you often need to integrate other steps and/or fix discoverable issues. Through the consultation process, grEnz helps clients grasp the proper approach for their context, including the value that can be added — and liabilities avoided!! Consultation allows our clients to plan their project with us and then, should you choose, shop around for the actual services... however, we're confident you'll also find our pricing to be the best. It's that in which grEnz prides itself: best quality at the best price.
"What types of plants do you use?"
grEnz works somewhat exclusively with native and edible / otherwise-beneficial plants. In our experience, natives can and do routinely supplant conventional ornamentals, in essentially every aesthetic context (layout, color scheme, price limit) that we've encountered. *Within the residential and curtilage contexts only, we'll generally oblige insistences upon specific non-native plant selections... Just know that these special requests can add substantially to landscape maintenance.
In utilizing edible (and otherwise-beneficial) plants, grEnz seeks to enable clients to produce abundant, high-quality sustenance, which, to boot, offsets production demands of a tired industrial agriculture system. grEnz can strategically integrate a wide variety of perennial "permaculture" edibles into the landscape and, as the client might also wish, traditionally cropped annual plants from heirloom, open-pollinated, and/or landrace genetic lineages.
grEnz produces many of our own plants —and sells surplus inventory (plus special orders!)— through our in-house, licensed nursery operation, perusable here.
