"Green Effect takes everything you think of when it comes to landscaping and design and literally throws it out of the 20th floor window. The designers here maximize your space with your own personality in combination!"

- Renee, Google Review


"We have been using Green Effect, Inc. for our interior landscaping for more than 15 years. They most recently designed and constructed a green wall in the lobby of one of our facilities.The wall perfectly integrates into the design of the lobby and the plants are beautifully maintained.Everyone that comes into the building compliments us on the wall. I recommend Green Effect without reservation and know they will provide your organization with the same high quality level of service they have provided to our company over the years."

"Since 1996, Golden Corral has had a contractual service with Green Effect and in all this time, we have never had any reason to be dissatisfied with their service. Their team is knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. I have personally worked with them directly for 20 years and have found Patrick, Sharon and their team to be highly professional, responsive to any requests and completely reliable. They are willing to do whatever it takes to provide the appropriate plants (and care thereof) that showcase our corporate office."

-Golden Corral
