Trying to help build a Sustainable Syracuse


Our company began in 2012 trying to fill a niche in the energy efficient outdoor lighting market. We felt that our local community was lacking a company that focused on Residential Architectural and Landscape Lighting. After a successfull year in 2012 we decided to expand our services to include Landscape Design and Construction. We have since expanded into Green Roof Construction, Permeable Paving, and a number of other Green Infrastructure that gives us pride about the work we do each day. Making an impact on the future is one of our goals as a company. We do our best to only use sustainable materials that will last the lifetime of our clients. We often pass up projects that don't fall in line with our principles.
