It was 1997. And PJ Faust was a high school kid with an entrepreneurial spirit, a love of nature, and a team of his friends responsible for caring for and maintaining neighbors’ landscaping in Concord, North Carolina. What started as a fun and thriving summer job mowing lawns ended up teaching Faust a lifelong lesson that has become a non-negotiable in his work today - it’s vitally important to deliver exceptional customer service and care.
In time, Faust sold his thriving part-time enterprise; he enrolled in North Carolina State University where he graduated with degrees in Finance and Horticulture.
Faust founded Terra Green Precision Landscapes in 2004. From day one, the goal was simple: to be a full-service, mission-driven landscaping business serving the Charlotte region.
As a responsible, effective, and respected business, Terra Green is a local leader in full service landscaping, mission-driven operations, and exceptional customer service and care.
Even more important to Faust is that Terra Green is a leader responsible for making the world a more beautiful place.

How we do business
How we do business is critical to not only our success, but also - and more importantly - our clients’ happiness. We make both possible with decisions and actions guided by our core values. It is only then that we can operate as a responsible, effective, and respected partner, collaborator, and consultant.
What does it mean to us to be responsible, effective, and respected?
We believe in taking responsibility for our actions; and that personal responsibility impacts our community, our team, our clients, and our legacy.
One of the ways in which the community can experience our sense of responsibility is in our sustainability practices. We strategically focus our efforts where we make the most positive impact: Water, Recycling, and Waste Management.
By leveraging horticultural science and today’s practices, Terra Green creates innovative landscape solutions that respect our clients’ time and money. We deliver timely, high quality services that are the ultimate one-two punch: they’re efficient and effective.
Effective means several different things to us at Terra Green.
First, we spend your money like it’s ours. Our push for productivity means we are able to deliver high-quality services for the lowest cost possible which is exactly what we would want for ourselves.
Next, our people are our most valuable resource. We invest in their growth and development with training programs that start on day one. The purpose of these unique learning opportunities is to set a high standard to deliver on our commitments to customers. We find that to be effective for our customers and for our team members.
As a local leader in landscaping with over 15 years of experience, we know the Charlotte community. Respect is two-fold which is why we take great pride in actively serving the communities where we live and work. We proudly support youth sports, the arts, education and other local nonprofit endeavors making a difference.
Our clients enjoy the peace of mind that comes from working side-by-side with a strategic partner who knows their community.
We believe that level of trust is truly what makes the world a more beautiful place.
