Responsibility


  • a image

    We do things because they are right and just and that is who we are. That’s who we are as a company. When I think about human rights, I don’t think about an ROI. ... and by the same token, I don’t think about helping our environment from an ROI point of view.

    Tim Cook, CEO Apple

    I've always felt like a company has the responsibility to not wait for the government to tell it what to do, or to wait for the consumer to tell it what to do, but as soon as it finds out it’s doing something wrong, stop doing it.

    Yvon Chouinard - (Patagonia)

    Always do right; this will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

    Mark Twain


Responsibility is more than a buzzword.

At Native Edge, we don’t just create native landscapes. We are one. We run our business exactly like we serve our customers—with genuine care, commitment, and dedicated responsibility:

To Our Environment

We strive to incorporate cutting-edge techniques in green and eco-friendly landscaping, and we’re committed to staying up-to-date with all of our design and maintenance techniques.

To Our Community

We work only with local suppliers and resources. By building strong relationships with other Austin businesses, we minimize costs, lessen our environmental footprint, and support our local economy.

To The Greater Good

We consider social responsibility an important part of our mission, from partnering with local non-profits to sponsoring charitable events and donating money and materials to important causes.

To Our Team

We believe that doing great work starts with offering great work. We take care of our own by paying a living wage, offering benefits and perks, and supporting our team members’ work-life balance.

How We Stay Local

We like to go beyond just keeping Austin weird—we do everything we can to keep it strong and thriving, by:

  • Using only native plants in our landscapes—those that grow naturally in our area and are more resilient in our local environment.
  • Utilizing Texas materials and resources, creating less impact on the environment and reducing gas emissions from transporting these materials from far away.
  • Working with local suppliers and vendors to support our native economy. We shop and buy locally for our office goods, clothing, print design, etc.
