Sustainable

Sustainability is a multi-faceted concept that encompasses a wide range of applications. While many people today tend to think of climate change and carbon footprint when it comes to sustainability, it encompasses much more. Sustainability is not just about the global impact, but also about creating ongoing excellence within oneself, one’s family, neighborhood, town, and city. It is about taking a holistic approach to how we interact with our team, customers, suppliers, and environment. It is about making responsible decisions that have a positive impact on the world today and for future generations. At Seattle Sustainable Landscapes, we understand the importance of sustainability and strive to incorporate it into everything we do, from our work to our interactions with others.

Our Story

Creating Sustainable Outdoor Spaces with Passion for the Environment and Community

Seattle Sustainable Landscapes is owned by David and Nicolette, a husband and wife team who both grew up in the greater Seattle area. With a lineage deeply rooted in the outdoors, farming, and raising food, they have always had a passion for the natural environment and a deep understanding of the importance of sustainability.

David’s background in landscape construction and Nicolette’s studies in oceanography at the University of Washington have provided them with a unique perspective on sustainable landscape design. Nicolette’s work at the University of Washington led to a publication in the field of oceanography, which further solidified her understanding of the importance of sustainability and the impact of human actions on the environment.

At Seattle Sustainable Landscapes, we are dedicated to creating beautiful, sustainable outdoor spaces for homeowners in the greater Seattle area. We believe that a sustainable landscape should not only be aesthetically pleasing, but also conserve resources, promote biodiversity, and enhance the overall quality of life for everyone.

Our team of experienced professionals is committed to working with our customers, partners, and employees to create a sustainable landscape that meets their specific needs and preferences while also helping to reduce their carbon footprint and save on their utility bills. We take a holistic approach to landscape design, considering the interconnectedness of our environment, properties, and communities.

We believe that by creating sustainable outdoor spaces, we can not only improve the aesthetics of a property but also contribute to creating a more sustainable and equitable society. We are passionate about the work we do and are committed to making a real and lasting impact in the greater Seattle area.

Yard Maintenance & Clean-Ups

Leave the care of your yard to us. We specialize in both residential and commercial property maintenance.

"This has been my favorite home improvement project. This company literally made me a yard where there previously was overgrowth, concrete, large stumps and rocks. They were able to complete the project on time and their cost was much more reasonable than others I interviewed. The project lead Fernando was hard working and communicative. The owner David (and Jeff previously) as well as the GM Chris all stayed in touch throughout the project. I would definitely use them for other projects in the future. "

“The team put in an irrigation system in our front and back yard, cleaned everything up and added many new plants to the sunny and shady areas around our home. The owner was very personable, explained everything well and did exactly what he said he was going to do. He was fantastic to work with. His team was wonderful, super hard workers, and very friendly. They helped create color and beauty in every nook and cranny of our yard. My husband and I are very thankful we used this company."
