The Greenery Inc. was recently given the Grand Award in the 2012 Environmental Improvement Awards Program sponsored by the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET).
The landscape company won the program’s highest national award for its impressive commitment to environmental stewardship at Palmetto Bluff.
PLANET’s Environmental Improvement Awards Program reflects the association’s commitment to creating and preserving the beauty of natural landscape. The program is designed to reward landscape and lawn care professionals who execute superior projects.
Lee Edwards, CEO of The Greenery Inc., says “It’s such an honor for The Greenery to be awarded at this high level. This award is a great example of our employees’ strong work ethic and pride they take in their jobs, as well as the great partnership with all of the people we work with at Palmetto Bluff.”
The Greenery Inc. has been the landscape company on call for Palmetto Bluff since the community was first developed in 2000. A dedicated crew addresses all landscaping and irrigation maintenance needs of this vast and bustling luxury resort and neighborhood. Great lengths are taken by The Greenery to be environmentally minded in the maintenance of the land, performing much of the maintenance by hand to create the desired natural look without being intrusive of the guests and residents.
Dallas Wood, Land Development Manager for Palmetto Bluff says, “At Palmetto Bluff, we pride ourselves on land conservation. The Greenery’s professional staff maintains our landscape while keeping the natural appeal of the Bluff’s breathtaking views.”
This hard work and dedication by The Greenery’s employees provides the guests and residents of Palmetto Bluff an ideal location to enjoy the amenities and beauty of the land. Edwards gives a special thank you to Miles Graves, Keith Sheeley, Ronald Vargas, Clay Kindard and the rest of the crew that make such a huge difference at Palmetto Bluff.

THE GREENERY GIVES BACK
The Greenery, Inc. recently donated the company’s services for the landscape and irrigation installation of the first phase of the Beaufort Spanish Moss Trail Project, hosting a day-long landscaping blitz at the site. More than 100 of The Greenery’s employees from crew to office staff got their hands dirty, installing irrigation, trees, shrubs, pinestraw, groundcover and 10,000 square feet of sod. The Beaufort Spanish Moss Trail project will convert a 20-mile stretch of the former Port Royal Railroad into a cycling and pedestrian corridor. The trail will provide a safe and accessible pedestrian and bicycle route that will not only be a recreational asset, but provide an alternative mode of transportation that will link people to jobs, services and schools.
