Working with Green Steeze

Green Steeze is a small company, making a huge environmental impact. We're the first conservation landscaping service in Prince William County, and we believe in eco friendly, healthy, and sustainable lifestyles, so we offer services and products that make it easier for everyday people to reach these goals. 

Working with Green Steeze is a unique and rewarding experience for those who love nature, plants, and hands-on projects. It's the most fulfilling experience to look back at a project after it's completion, and know you contributed to something beautiful and impactful.

As a "green lifestyle" company, we're making a difference by bridging the gap for Northern Virginians who want to connect with nature but are busy working or don't have the physical capability. As designers we solve problems, create solutions, and improve functionality to best support our clients and the environment. As land stewards we're fighting off invasive plant species so native species can thrive. As a nursery we're nurturing the plants needed to help the eco system and create healthy food options for our community. Individually we're interacting respectfully with wildlife while creating beautiful landscapes that can be enjoyed harmoniously. Our team effort is how we successfully educate our community on best practices to keep our soil, air, and water clean. 

Green Steeze trains specialists, people with expertise, because it takes a great deal of knowledge to educate the community and work in habitats. You're not just some replaceable body at Green Steeze, and we're not sales driven. Each team member is valued and important. Hardworking team effort is what's growing this company. 2023 marks our 3rd year in business! We've had tremendous growth and look forward to more people joining our team effort in making "green style easy". 

What We Need: People who care about doing a great job, supporting the environment, and working in a team with good vibes. We're growing, so we want people who can grow with us!

What We Don't Need: People who just want any job, have bad attitudes, stand around waiting for directions, and pay no attention to detail. If you hate the outdoors, think insects are gross, want to kill anything that moves, or in general "hate working" this job is not for you!   

Special Message From The Owner: In 2021, I started this company because I CARE about the environment, but the non-profit sector didn't offer enough money to support the needs of my growing family, but I was sick of the lack of CARE in regular landscaping. We make descent money in conservation landscaping and urban agriculture, but we also work super hard. It really takes the right kind of personalities to do what we do. You have to CARE about contributing your best efforts. I genuinely CARE that we have a healthy and happy team. We encourage and build each other up and by doing so, accomplish amazing projects. Our team CARES if our clients are satisfied with the services and products that we provide. We have the best clients who also CARE about nature and health. So naturally, We all CARE that we hire awesome people who will also CARE about doing a great job and being a major player on this impressive, all-star team of professionals.
