TerraGreen provided design and installation services for 2 landscape projects for our new house. Bob and the entire TerraGreen staff were professional, collaborative and trustworthy. We were so pleased with the work that we had them install landscape and up-lighting on the house, giving it a warm and inviting look at night. I would definitely recommend them based on my experience.
Melinda T., Wheeling

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, and 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.

Domenic D., CEO, Jendoco Construction
We had a fantastic experience with TerraGreen. Bob and his team are true professionals to work with. They were detailed with their work, conscience with time and easy to communicate with. We felt so comfortable and confident with Bob’s skillset and vision that we asked him to do another project for us. The completed work of TerraGreen has taken the appearance of our home to the next level. We feel so lucky to have found such a quality company to work with!
Nicholas, Southpointe

My front and rear yards needed to be completely re-done due to a renovation / 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.

DP D., Squirrel Hill
TerraGreen transformed our backyard by designing and installing a beautiful outdoor living space including patio pavers, stone steps, retaining wall, landscaping, and lighting. The entire team was professional, hard working, and demonstrated a strong work ethic. We proudly recommend TerraGreen for their integrity, attention to detail, and high quality work.
Jerry C., Bethel Park
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.
Rob B., Project Manager, Jendoco Construction
TerraGreen constructed a 60 foot seating wall in our backyard, complete with landscaping detail and exterior lighting. 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.
Gary & Janice, Peters Township

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 hired them again for a stone staircase and pathway and were equally as pleased with the result.

SUSTAINABILITY

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 minimizes our use or overuse of non-renewable resources.

A sustainable approach prevents degradation of land, air, and climate, while creating built environments that nurture wildlife and blend seamlessly with your space. The goal is to provide as much value as possible with the least environmental impact, which helps to improve the quality of ecosystem services for future generations.

TerraGreen follows a variety of eco-friendly practices — from maximizing soil health to utilizing native plants to installing a living green roof system — that benefit both you and the environment.

Sustainable landscaping principles include:

  • Minimizing inputs like fertilizers, pesticides, water, energy & labor
  • Reducing storm water run-off, pollution, and invasive plants
  • Promoting biodiversity by attracting & supporting natural habitats

  • Enhancing our physical, mental, and social well-being

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
