The Green Image Story
I was born and raised in beautiful Victoria BC. From a young age I worked outdoors, spent my time hiking, swimming, biking and enjoying all the amazing scenery that Vancouver Island has to offer. I always looked after my neighbours lawns growing up and as I went through university I realized in order to secure my spot in business school I needed to start a business. Shortly after that I made a trailer and started towing it behind my honda civic loaded with gardening supplies. With a passion for making every customer happy Green image started to grow. I knew i needed some formal training so I enrolled in the Master Gardeners course at HCP, this gave me a foundation I needed to continue learning. Designing gardens, spending hours at nurseries understanding in depth the needs of each individual plant, understanding what customers want and what they feel is most important in a landscaping service and putting in long, long hours my knowledge started to grow along with my passion for landscaping. After I finished my degree in business, I was hooked on landscaping. I started to realize what Green Image really excelled at was the landscape maintenance part of the business and so we decided to focus on this.
Taking ownership in our client’s gardens and watching them flourish and develop over time is a very rewarding feeling. Returning to the same property weekly or biweekly crew members start to form great relationships with clients which is very special. Additionally, following a code of values at Green Image of Production, Pride in your work, Continuous learning and Reliability have been what drives us forward in every decision we make.
Although Green image is very customer focused we now equally focus on building a great team. This means we want to continue giving our clients great value but through a team of people that share the same interests and values where we can continue to grow and become the best landscape maintenance company in Victoria.

Pride in Your Work
To us pride in your work means looking back at the work you just did and having a sense of pride that you just did that. This also means that if you see a blade a grass missed by the mower you will go back and fix that as you are proud of the work do and would never leave a half done job.
We see the world through a lense of there is always more to learn. Weather that is learning more about horticulture or learning a different best practice for maintenance. We are always looking to evolve, change or adapt to better suit our clients and employees.
Reliability is a cornerstone in our business. To us reliability means doing what you say you will do over a long period of team.reliability means showing up when we say we will. Coming to work because we committed to that even though there may be somewhere you would rather be. Reliability is the foundation in which we can build Green image off.
These four values are the foundation of how we run our company. However what really makes Green Image what it is are the individual people that make up our team.
