Sustainability

Giving Back

We work to be better stewards of our environment.

As a local leader in the landscaping industry, we have a critical responsibility to keep our city and waterways clean to protect the health, safety, and welfare of our communities, clients, and staff. It is our duty to ensure future generations have a habitat in which to live happily and prosper. For over 60 years, we have strived to stay up to date on evolving technology and techniques so we can offer efficient, environmentally responsible services and products, while still providing superior quality.

ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS

Our landscaping and maintenance crews use a premium, all-season fertilizer formula of natural and organic ingredients that is OMRI Listed®. These products can be used on operations that are certified organic under the USDA National Organic Program. Our garden centers also favor organic fertilizers by stocking and promoting them at each location.

RECYCLING

Grass clippings and other yard debris have traditionally been bagged and hauled to landfills or yard waste processing centers. For more than 20 years, we have been recycling all organic yard debris. We also recycle and/or reuse paper, plastic, metal, batteries, oil, and other materials. We reuse all of our containers, reducing the need to purchase more and preventing them from being sent to the landfill.

SUSTAINABLE SERVICES

Mulching grass clippings back into the soil profile is an essential aspect of environmental stewardship that requires special mulching decks and blades. Dennis’ 7 Dees is proud to partner with John Deere engineers to design improvements for maximum mulching in our sometimes challenging Pacific Northwest climate. Mulching creates a healthier, fuller lawn while reducing water and fertilizer use.

REDUCED RELIANCE ON CHEMICALS

Choosing products that minimize our impact on the environment is very important to us. At Dennis’ 7 Dees, we maintain landscapes with the goal of reducing chemical use on plants and flowers. This includes integrated pest management, which takes advantage of all appropriate pest management options, including hand weeding and weed control through mulching.

REDUCED RUNOFF/EROSION CONTROL

We control runoff by installing water gardens, bioswales, wetlands, and eco roofs into our landscape designs. This protects our waterways and helps prevent water from overwhelming municipal utilities.

WATER CONSERVATION

Working with major manufacturers, we provide the latest in products and technologies that use water efficiently, including water-saving nozzles, Rain Bird Smart Controller technology, and a grass seed blend requiring 75% less water than normal turf. Our commitment extends to the education and training of our crews.

ENERGY-EFFICIENT EQUIPMENT

We use fuel-efficient equipment for yard maintenance services with low-emission engines that prove to run cleaner than EPA standards for exhaust emissions.
