Greenher: Our Core Values

Why do we do what we do at Greenher Landscape and Lawn?  We would like to introduce you to our core values: Beauty, Opportunity, Labor, and Community.

We are a unique business.  As you know, we do provide services that you need in your yard, but our other primary purpose is to provide meaningful employment for women.  Within our work, we hold our core values at the forefront.

We believe that a beautiful yard enhances the quality of our lives.  Whether it’s a well-maintained lawn or colorful seasonal landscaping, we appreciate the value that outdoor spaces add to our communities.

We believe that women can enjoy this work, too!  In this field, it is typically men who provide the services we offer. Greenher Landscape and Lawn challenges the notion that only men can do this type of labor.  We exist to provide women the opportunity to learn new skills and identify a passion in cultivating beauty.

Additionally, Greenher exists to empower women to earn wages that enable them to provide for themselves and their families.  By connecting with local organizations who assist unemployed women, we are teaching new skills while providing income.

On the job, we will be learning together: proficiency in basic yard care and equipment maintenance, planning of landscapes, implementation of design, and more!

We believe that hard work is rewarding!  It is our experience that working outside is meaningful, valuable, and healthy.  Creating and maintaining beauty IS hard work – sweaty and dirty and exhausting.  It requires us to be physically capable and mentally attentive.  We sleep well and peacefully at night, because physical labor is good for us and being outside provides many benefits to our health.

The work of making our communities beautiful is particularly rewarding.  Think of your own neighborhood or your drive to work.  We get to enjoy our neighbors’ yards as we go by and appreciate the flowers blooming in a landscaped area.  Sometimes we don’t think about the work which established a lovely garden.  Landscapers are the artists who envision and create this beauty!

We want to share this experience with other women, who otherwise may not have the opportunity to engage with this field of employment.

We believe that attention to beauty in our outside spaces is beneficial to our entire community.  A beautiful yard will bring your neighbors outside and together.  We can also help create landscaped areas which are particularly appealing to your children (ex. butterfly gardens).

Greenher Landscape and Lawn wants to help you create beauty in your yard.  If you use our services, you are also helping our community!  Join us!
