Robert (Bob) Orr began work in the horticulture field in his mid-thirties. In 1998, he graduated from South Puget Sound Community with a degree in Horticulture and became certified as a professional horticulturist through the Washington State Nursery and Landscape Association (WSNLA).
In 2001, he began Gardener Bob’s Landscape Services in Tacoma Washington.
The company’s experience and staff expanded in 2005 when Bob met and married Lorie, who is also a Certified Horticulturist. Lorie is a specialist in perennials and annual plants and maintains a large vegetable garden.
Over the years, she has become an expert at growing vegetables and now shares her knowledge so her customers can have vegetable gardens with bountiful harvests.
In 2011, the company changed its name to Rainier Landscaping. Of course, many people still refer to the owner as “Gardener Bob” and that will probably never change.
They provide the same outstanding service to their customers and remain committed to delivering the best landscaping in the Tacoma area.
In 2014, Bob became certified as an ecoPRO Certified Sustainable Landscape Professional through the WSNLA. This required him to pass an exam testing his knowledge of sustainable landscaping principles and best practices.
In addition, he will abide by the ecoPRO Code of Ethics to design, construct and manage landscapes using ecologically sound philosophies and methods.
Rainier Landscaping has been providing the residents and businesses of Tacoma Washington with professional landscape services since 2001.
As horticulturists and landscape professionals, we’ve always been concerned with making our environment better. We want to give our customers greener options so they can have a beautiful yard and feel good knowing sustainable landscaping services are responsible for it.
Sustainable landscape practice uses ecologically sound methods to work in concert with the natural eco-regional systems. The goal is to create healthier yards by designing, building and maintaining landscapes which are environmentally friendly while lessening the impact on the local ecosystem.
Communication is the key to delivering great service. We realize our customers have many options and want them to see why Rainier Landscaping is the clear choice for delivering landscape design and maintenance services at an affordable price.
