Design is not just what it looks like. Design is how it works.
A sustainable future is one that ensures the well-being of all living things, carefully blending human activities with systems of the natural world.
Sustainable landscaping is the practice of identifying environmental and ecological challenges and providing solutions that avoid the depletion of energy, water and raw natural resources, while cleaning the air and water. The result is an attractive environment that is ecologically stable, safer and requires fewer inputs than more conventional methods.
A sustainable approach prevents degradation of land, air, and climate, while creating built environments that are livable, safe and healthy. The goal is to provide as much value as possible with the least impact on the environment.
TerraGreen follows a variety of eco-friendly practices based on the unique needs of the site, and incorporates sustainable options when feasible. Our services range from maximizing soil health to installing living green roof systems.
Sustainable landscaping principles include:
Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.

My front and rear yards needed to be completely re-done due to a renovation/addition/sewer line project. Bob did all of the design, working with me for input on what I was looking for. All I can say is “wow” – the colors and variety of plants and flowers is amazing and my grass looks great too. All of the workers were neat and courteous and they did excellent work. I have recommended TerraGreen to friends and family and would definitely use them again.
TerraGreen constructed a 60 foot seating wall in our backyard, complete with landscaping detail and exterior lighting. As with all outdoor events, our project was subject to many days of weather related delays; however, the team at TerraGreen was diligent about not wasting time and energy. The electrical set-up was completed without incident. The team of workers is to be applauded not only for their attention to detail and craftsmanship, but they were extremely conscientious of both our privacy and also our property. TerraGreen has definitely earned our trust and we will gladly offer our recommendation upon request.
We had a very positive experience working with TerraGreen! The employees were very hard working, accountable, and respectful. You can tell they take pride in their work and in making sure the customer is satisfied. They also followed up months after the job was complete, making sure all of their plants were doing well and replaced what ever needed replaced. We would definitely use TerraGreen again! Thank you for the beautiful work in our yard!
Thanks again, everything looks great! I’m very pleased with the outcome of the project. You went above expectations. Again, thanks for all the hard work. Looks great!
What a difference! Our neighbors have commented as they go up the street and see the lovely change and made our entire yard look so much better. Bob and his crew of three were very nice, and cleaning-up as the days went by. They left no mess and they were very hard workers. We were very satisfied with the outcome of this job and also the cost.
We were thrilled with the beautiful cedar fence that TerraGreen installed in our backyard. We were shown lots of options based on our preferences. The materials used were top quality and the crew was extremely professional and easy to work with. We will have them come back to landscape the patio next year.
TerraGreen added a low-maintenance landscape bed to our front yard. They listened to our vision and were able to seamlessly integrate quality plants and different rocks to create exactly what we wanted. They were extremely professional, providing great communication and working within our timeframe. We would highly recommend Bob his crew.
In the fall, TerraGreen did landscaping work at my house. Bob gave recommendations for layouts and types of trees; the trees were just as described and planted, mulched, staked and trunks wrapped. They did a wonderful job and to this day all 58 trees are doing well. TerraGreen designed all the accent lighting in the beds around the house and it put the finishing touch to highlight everything well. Bob takes great pride in his work and you can tell by his quality results. I recommend TerraGreen and Bob without hesitation for anyone’s landscape needs.
The proprietor and employees of TerraGreen represented their company well during the preliminary questioning phase, which was the main reason we hired TG. Every question we had regarding landscape lighting was addressed in a respectful, timely, and thorough manner, and detailed information was provided to help us with our decisions. Their specifics and charts were super helpful. They kept in touch regarding job start date, arrived on time, and finished quickly. They left no mess behind. We feel that the lighting products used were of high quality. The proprietor came back at night to make sure we were happy with the way lights shone, and was faithful to address a change we requested. We are sure that if we ever have any issues or questions in the future, they will continue to provide their great customer service. Highly recommend.
As owners of numerous commercial properties in the Pittsburgh area, we have worked with TerraGreen many times to install, and in some cases, design and install landscaping. These projects have included extensive planting beds, trees, mending or adding soil, mulch, & pruning. Their work has always been of the highest quality and price competitive. We not only recommend them unequivocally, but look forward to our next project with them.
It was great to work with TerraGreen. On multiple occasions, TerraGreen was able to help us with budget constraints and schedule constraints. They are a professional group that communicates well to understand owner expectations. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
When we built our custom home we knew we didn’t want a basic builder landscaping package so after meeting with several landscape designers, we chose TerraGreen. We could not have been happier with our decision! The project involved grading, sodding, full landscape design and installation, retaining wall and lighting.Bob, the owner, was on site through most of the job making sure everything was done perfectly. The crew was very professional and easy to work with. TerraGreen did a fabulous job and we would highly recommend them!
