Sustainability

The Peter Ferrandino Group is committed to, and constantly striving towards delivering sustainable landscape solutions in all the areas we service. We will continue to adopt additional “green” practices as well as eco-friendly products and services in our offices, vehicles and on our client’s sites.

Sustainable Landscape Practices:

Incorporating native and resistant plantings

Practicing Xeriscaping whenever possible

Efficient water management systems

Preservation and conservation of existing plantings

The use of organic fertilizers for turf-grass and landscape plantings

Integrated Pest Management Techniques- IPM

Use of recycled natural materials wherever possible

Use of low volume sprinkler heads utilizing drip irrigation techniques

Use of low environmental impact deicers

PFG’s commitment to the environment expands beyond its landscape practices to our own operations. We’ve been incorporating “green” practices into our every-day functions for several years in order to reduce waste and expenditures.
