Green Acres began in 1991 as an all inclusive landscape service company providing installation and maintenance for private customers, residential and commercial complexes, and public works. Over the years the Anchorage based Green Acres has evolved into an exclusive custom design/build landscape company. The focus of Green Acres is to shape some of the most valuable properties in Anchorage into attractive, enjoyable and usable outdoor spaces, and then provide the ongoing care and maintenance services for those properties to keep them looking great. Our retail sales center is a result of our need to import the highest quality landscape and plant materials for our customers. Our mission is to provide uncompromising craftsmanship and service for all of your landscaping needs.
Green Acres is staffed with seasoned professionals that have made landscaping their career. We have a very low turnover rate, with the majority of our employees having over 6 years of experience with Green Acres. This ensures that the landscapers working your project are knowledgeable, efficient, and will complete the project to the high standards that Green Acres has become known for.
