Our Practices

TeamWorks Sustainable Landscape Maintenance:

  • Works with nature – not against it. For example, grass clippings are cycled back onto the lawn to fertilize it. We build healthy soil ecology using compost, and the soil is in turn the foundation of successful gardening without using harmful petrochemicals.
  • Conserves and protects water resources. Ours is a Mediterranean climate not a rain forest! We continually look for opportunities to reduce water use and protect the Santa Clara Valley watershed and the bay.
  • Honors people and community. Whether it’s within our cooperative, in our work with clients, or in other interactions in the broader community and world, we believe in treating all people with dignity and respect and seek to develop mutually beneficial partnerships.
