Greenlands' staff crafts a compost blend for vineyards, nurseries, yards, and gardens that the dedicated gardening experts make by carefully balancing temperature, moisture, and microbial activity for a finished product approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute. This is no small feat—six months to one year after it’s created, compost must to prove its quality by passing a screening and spontaneously producing a single red rose. Customers can choose from Greenlands’ variety of compost blends, including fine garden compost made with 100% plant matter, or potting soil, which contains pumice, peat moss, and NutriBoost. Sandy loam breaks up stubborn clay and fills in holes. Greenlands’ staff can also whip up custom compost blends for gardeners that are tailored to the specific qualities of their soil.

Whether it?s mowing lawns or completely redesigning green spaces, the bonded and licensed crew at Mow Town Lawn Care works tirelessly to beautify the expanses surrounding homes and businesses. Time-saving teams travel to homes to trim, edge, and weed yards or to reimagine them via flower-bed design or ornamental hedge trimming. Larger projects take on the form of deck and patio construction and retaining walls that accent natural topography better than a scarecrow made of sod. The techs also handle trees left in precarious conditions, pruning limbs ravaged by storms, removing and grinding stumps, and patching up arborous wounds caused by decay.
Founded by two college students in 1999, Green Thumb Landscape & Maintenance has since blossomed into a full-service yard-care authority, tackling projects ranging from residential landscaping to intricate redesigns at the Portland International Airport and the Oregon State Hospital. The team of professional technicians can transform overgrown lawns into meticulously landscaped works of art dappled with stone walkways, fire pits, water features, and sprinkler systems. They overhaul scruffy yards and dispose of debris offsite during full-scale renovations that encourage new, healthy foliage to bloom, and they revivify dowdy turf with chromatic seasonal flower beds, Christmas lights, and tie-dyed jack-o'-lanterns.
Aerials Tree Service owner Jason LaDue personally visits his clients’ homes to make estimates and render services such as planting and removing trees, pruning hedges, and grinding stumps. After more than two decades of experience on the job, he has an eye for arboreal aesthetics and a keen understanding of when a tree poses a safety issue, such as when the tree begins to sprout Louisville Sluggers. When services are completed, homeowners can elect to have the resulting scrap wood chipped and cleared, or turned into firewood that can be donated to families in need.
Owned and managed by a U.S. veteran, Oregon Fir Landscape Management designs custom landscaping and performs other maintenance services for homes and businesses.

As part of their satisfaction guarantee, they will promptly return to your house should any offended shrubberies threaten to blackmail you over their new habitation.
