Site Structures Landscape, Inc. Bringing “Green” Back to Landscaping

Site Structures Landscape, Inc. offers customers a winning combination of innovative lawn care, honest work, and green alternatives in an industry known for harmful use of pesticides and chemicals. Owner Charlie Bourdages launched the Eliot, Maine company in 1996. Since then, he and his team have found a myriad of ways to incorporate sustainability into their landscaping (lawns, gardens, etc.) and hardscaping (stone, pavement, and brick) practices. New clients meet with project managers Ben Woods and Curt Rose to discuss their “green” options. According to Nicole Tracy, the office manager of Site Structures, their commitment to sustainability came about naturally. “It’s simple; we live here,” she explains. “We want to be responsible members of our community. By treating our planet well, we’re helping both the environment and the people in the communities we serve. It’s the backbone of what we do.”

Site Structures has found many creative ways to make their business practices more sustainable. They are huge proponents of chemical free lawn care, and promote their environmentally friendly services in their pamphlets and monthly email blasts. Site Structures is also a member of Seacoast Buy Local. Whenever possible, they source their building and lawn care materials locally, supporting our New England economies and decreasing their carbon footprint. They also purchase their business cards and uniforms from local vendors.
