The Green Seed: Emily L Booth

Category(s): Contractor
Servicing: Multnomah and Clackamas Counties

The Green Seed is a small family-owned sustainable landscape design+build company. We design and install with sustainability as one of our core values. We are big advocates of using native plants which are incorporated into every design. Many of these plants are grown in our own nursery which is Certified Naturally Grown which means no synthetic chemicals or fertilizers are used in the production of our plants. In addition to native plants, we grow a wide variety of other non-invasive, drought-tolerant plants to create many beautiful colors, forms, and textures in your landscape. While plants are our passion we can also design other elements of your landscape such as patios, paths, garden boxes, trellises, etc. Emily has a background in art and multimedia design, so your plans will be unique with many hand-drawn elements. Austin has a degree in natural resources from OSU and has worked a variety of jobs related to habitat restoration and native plant care. He has been a birder for nearly 20 years and is passionate about the conservation of our native wildlife species. Together Emily and Austin’s training and experience make The Green Seed uniquely qualified to create your backyard habitats.

Amaranth Organic Gardening: Marc Willwerth

(503) 327-4871
Category(s): Contractor
Servicing: Multnomah County

Every garden is an opportunity to reconnect with nature.

Amaranth Organic Gardening approaches garden creation differently than other landscapers and garden designers. We utilize the concepts of Matrix Planting and Slow Design. Our extensive background in garden maintenance has led us to design gardens where the plants lead the way. By following nature’s intelligence we create harmonious plant communities using predominantly herbaceous layered plantings. This has allowed the gardens we create to get out of the endless loop of repetitive maintenance and resource intensive inputs.

Specializing in planting design and garden creation/rejuvenation, we are an all organic company using no pesticides/herbicides or fungicides of any kind (except Sluggo, because no one wants slugs on their lettuce). Amaranth Organic Gardening is a certified Ecobiz and Oregon Tilth Accredited Organic Land Care Practitioners.
