A Yard & A Half Landscaping Cooperative, Inc. was formed in 2013 to preserve and continue to develop a locally-owned, safe, just, and democratic workplace in an industry where workers often face exploitation, wage theft, and hazardous working conditions. Participation in the cooperative is a financial and career investment for members, not just a job. Worker-owners participate in professional development, learning transferable skills and creating economic growth and self-sufficiency. We also share in the profits of our labor, allowing us to reinvest in our own local economy, communities, and families.
Why Our Customers Return to Us
Year After Year
“We’ve had complete strangers stop their cars and tell us how much they like our new yard. In the past year we’ve had extensive work done on our house with an army of workers, none have been as conscientious, considerate and hard working as your crew.”
“On Saturday I was in the vegetable garden planting… I looked up through the pergola into the side garden and it was absolutely perfect. It looked like something out of a magazine.”
Amy and Tim
“Thank you for creating a wonderful outdoor space for our family. We admire the work you do as well as the way to do it with intelligence, joy and respect for one another and those of us you encounter on the way.”
