All Oregon Landscaping Hosts Niagara Parks School of Horticulture
Recently, All Oregon Landscaping hosted a group from the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture. The renowned horticulture school came all the way from Ontario, Canada to tour one of Portland Oregon’s top landscaping companies.
The tour was conducted by the owner of All Oregon Landscaping, Craig Prunty. He showed the enthusiastic and burgeoning landscapers his company’s Sherwood, Oregon facility. During the tour, Craig shared his 30 years of experience in landscape design and his vast knowledge of the industry.
Of course the main attraction of tour was All Oregon’s 20-acre, private nursery that contains more than 8,000 different plants.
The horticulture students got a rare and priceless tour of one of the most successful landscaping companies in the Portland metro area. All Oregon Landscaping is a family owned business that has been transforming average yards into work of arts for more than 23 years. Their work has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, in Sunset Magazine, and at local lawn and garden shows.
An outsider may ask why a company as big and successful as All Oregon would spend their valuable time showing a bunch of students around their campus. After all, All Oregon tackles multimillion dollar projects; their design and project management teams have over a century of experience; and the company has a staff of 20 skilled and dedicated individuals.
Well, All Oregon Landscaping is more than just a landscaping company. They care about their industry and the next wave of landscapers. They want to give back and there’s no better way to do that than spending some quality time “talking shop” with students from a renowned horticulture school.
