In order to keep our customers and our community safe we are keeping up to date and following both required and recommended guidelines from the Oregon Health Authority.
We are scheduling outdoor site visits while wearing masks and following proper social distancing guidelines. When an on-site visit is not necessary we are able to connect online via Zoom, Skype, Facetime, or by phone etc.
Our nursery is still open and we are offering plant delivery and contactless curbside pick up at our Canby location.
Austin and Emily started The Green Seed (TGS) in the spring of 2014. This family owned, sustainable landscape design and nursery company offers you a unique hands-on experience. At it’s core TGS strives to be as eco-friendly as possible and has been certified as a Eco-Biz. We include these sustainable practices in our Design work and Nursery Care.
Emily and Austin collaborate to bring their unique set of skills, knowledge and experiences together in their work. Because of this, they create sustainable landscape designs that will compliment your home and outdoor needs.
In 2019 we opened our Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) Nursery. CNG …”is a grassroots certification that builds farms and communities”. We are proud to offer a product that until now was virtually unavailable in our region. We produce ornamental landscape plants grown without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. We use locally sourced potting soil ingredients as much as possible and utilize water conserving irrigation practices.
We hope that the next time you are planning on purchasing plants for your project you will reach out!
Our goals is to create all of our designs in the most sustainable way possible. As a result we start by incorporating a minimum of 5% (but usually more) native plants in every design. In addition we take careful consideration in all of our other plant selections. We focus on plants that are non-invasive, low maintenance, and require little to no water. We also feature plants that will attract pollinators and support native wildlife. When desired we will incorporate food production plants as well. Also at TGS we love taking out grass and will happily discuss other options for that patch of green that require less of our precious resources. Another sustainable design feature we install are Rain gardens. We encourage rain garden installation because not only are they beautiful, but they can reduce water pollution.
