New Name, Co-Owner for Lawn and Garden Care Company
The Greenscape Gals is welcoming their new co-owner, Nick Abbott, with a name change to the Greenscape Geeks. Abbott joins the Geeks with his fiancé and current owner, Lanette Erby. The two met during their graduate studies in Natural Resources and Environmental Management at Ball State University. He brings extensive experience with farming, Indiana native trees, compost and biologic (non-chemical) pest control to Indianapolis’ landscaping scene.
The Greenscape Geeks are working to revolutionize an industry steeped in chemicals and other environmentally unfriendly practices by providing scientifically researched and proven alternatives. For example, since healthy soil is the most important factor in growing healthy plants, the Geeks forgo harmful chemical fertilizers and herbicides by offering compost and compost tea applications for lawns to rejuvenate soil. They also work to dispel the myth that a healthy lawn is all grass, when in fact, plants deemed as weeds provide numerous benefits to turf.
The Geeks also provide landscaping utilizing native plants that provide food and shelter for important pollinators, like bees and butterflies plus other local wildlife. In addition, sustainability focused 3D design services, raised garden bed and composter construction, urban farm and prairie installations, small tree and shrub pruning, hardscaping, spring and fall clean-ups, and more are offered throughout the metro area.
