Yes. We are THOSE people. The kind that love to plant things, stare at trees and dig in the dirt. We love rocks and moss and flowing water.

We do it because we love quality. We want every landscape we create to be a place we would live and spend time in. We want to see it years later and see a quality job that grows more beautiful each year and a customer who loves their yard every time they sit and drink their coffee.

Eric loves the opportunity to be creative. He knows it is a privilege to have clients put their trust in Greenhaven to create beautiful and lasting landscapes and he enjoys meeting the challenges that each yard brings. The outdoors is Eric’s favorite place. He loves hiking, cycling, riding his motorcycle, golfing, and snowboarding. He especially loves spending time with good friends and
We love to play in dirt.We love the outdoor life. Cuddling by the fire, cooking outside, laughing around the patio table, cocooning in blankets while the kids tumble on the lawn. All these things make us smile silly. Yards don’t have to be cookie cutter boring. They should reflect you, your family, and your life. Your yard should be beautiful with every season. Imagine looking out your window every morning and finding your happy place. Amazing, yes? Learn More
