Mark believes in giving back to the community that supported the growth of his business. The company regularly donates plants, services, and finances to local community landscape projects.
Through the years we have been honored to have opportunities to support our community, including town projects, schools, libraries, churches, athletics, and non-profit groups.
Resent projects that we have helped to complete include the landscaping for the Amy Harris Memorial Reading Garden at Hussey School in Berwick, Maine, the non-profit Fabulous Find in Kittery, Maine, and the new library in South Berwick, Maine. Through our affiliation with MeLNA we have been involved in volunteer projects for Camp Sunshine in Casco, Maine and the Morrison Center in Scarborough, Maine.
