Chances are when you see Michael Mayberry, he’s wearing a Level Green Landscaping shirt.

“Most of my clothes have the company logo on them,” says Mayberry, chief technical officer at Level Green.

That’s fine with him. 

“I feel proud about wearing my uniform,” he says. “I make sure I’m standing up straight. I carry myself with pride when I’m wearing our shirts. Everybody here does.”

Our crisp, clean uniforms make Level Green look good. But they affect our customers, too.

If we do our job right, the plants we add to your property look like they’ve always been there, like they perfectly belong.

We need thousands and thousands of plants, from flats of annuals to potted tropicals to bare root saplings to big established trees.

Maybe it used to be filled with attractive plants, but they all died.

Maybe it’s just always been there.

It’s boring. It’s full of weeds. It’s wasted space. 

You can do so much better. 

Just give us an opportunity.

Erosion control. Shelley Russell, landscape designer at Level Green Landscaping, shares some natural erosion solutions for your commercial property.

Those colorful flowers and plants in the pots way up on the rooftop garden might need water.

Or, they might not.

It’s often tricky to tell. 

Until now. 

Level Green Landscaping is now using Spiio — the latest soil moisture technology that will tell us instantly if a pot needs water, from miles away. 

Level Green business development manager Marion Delano is pretty excited about it.

Here’s why.
