Modern landscaping practices waste billions of dollars every year, and create a ton of environmental problems. We're on a mission to change that. Roots Down teaches organizations how to save money and integrate sustainability into their landscaping portfolios. We do this by training maintenance teams on sustainable landscaping, providing continuing education to stakeholders, and developing a plan for using existing budgets to keep the progress going.
Save money and save the planet.
We've developed a revolutionary approach to cost-effectively transitioning landscaping portfolios. Through a combination of training, pilot development, and long-term planning, we help you catalyze opportunity zones, identify policy changes, and train your internal staff and vendors so you can start tracking real-world sustainability impact in a matter of months.
Our innovative Grower Program provides your maintenance crews with a platform for upskilling to sustainable landscaping. With classes, resources, procedures, and continuing ed through our mobile app, the Grower Program has everything landscapers need to level up, identify cost savings, and integrate sustainability.
The Roots Down app gives clients and their stakeholders a way to stay connected to maintenance crews, highlight opportunities, and learn more about their sustainability impact. For landscapers, the app provides a stream of fun, engaging, and informative learning modules to continue their education.

Landscaping is changing.
After 75 years of dominance, the $140B "mow and blow" landscaping industry is facing pressure from all sides. From growing climate and environmental concerns, changing preferences, and increasing cost parity for eco-alternatives, the revolution has started.
Climate change is already wreaking havoc on our communities. As a significant source of greenhouse gases, landscaping has a tremendous chance to be a major climate solution.
Americans under 45 are driving changes in what is considered a "beautiful" landscape, preferring more varied styles.
Input costs for traditional landscaping are rising, and the cost for electric equipment is coming down, meaning eco-alternatives are no longer more expensive,
