Company History

In April of 1994, Coastal Greenery, Inc. was established by Jeffrey Johns. Jeffrey, along with his first employee, borrowed a trailer and lawn mower and began work on his first property. Parking all the equipment at his home in the evenings, he worked in his tiny bedroom office until the wee hours of the night completing all the administrative work for the company. With Jeffrey’s extensive horticulture knowledge, his personality, his drive to see his community dressed in beautiful landscapes and his business knowledge, he was able to bring Coastal Greenery to where it is today!

At the start of Coastal Greenery, quality work and customer service were always the standard. The company motto was “Where Customer Service is Always in Bloom” and this motto along with the logo was placed on the side of every truck and trailer in the fleet. In the beginning, Coastal Greenery provided all aspects of landscaping; from maintenance to landscape installs, from irrigation systems to water gardens. After a few years of trying to provide “everything” in the landscaping industry, Jeffrey decided to do what Coastal Greenery did best and that was Landscape Maintenance. With a leap of faith, Jeffrey began to turn down new construction installs consisting of landscape and irrigation installations and focused on jobs that involved landscape maintenance. Coastal Greenery has been a leader in the community and landscaping profession for exactly this type of business decision. So from 1999 until today Coastal Greenery has been focused on Landscape Maintenance and more recently taken the focus even further to concentrating on Commercial Landscape Maintenance.

Coastal Greenery has led the landscape community in our area in several other business facets such as; enclosed trailers, logoed trucks and trailers, company motto, company website, uniforms, and we could go on and on. Being a leader in the community has always been important to Jeffrey as well as building relationships. In 2009 the company’s image was given an overhaul to help set CGI apart from other landscape companies. The company logo changed as did the motto which now reads, “Relationships…..the Roots of Our Business.” Throughout the years Coastal Greenery and Jeffrey have been recognized in national magazines which included one issue with Jeffrey on the cover of Lawn & Landscape Magazine. Jeffrey has had the opportunity to speak at key landscape events throughout the United States and has written articles for The Brunswick News and national magazines. Coastal Greenery received the first ever “Small Business of the Year, 2013” award from the local Chamber of Commerce which was a huge honor because this was an award chosen by local business owners. Coastal Greenery also has won numerous safety awards through OSHA and other organizations. We take pride in our company’s strong history and look forward to continuing to follow our vision into a prosperous future.

Our Culture & Values

From the first day Coastal Greenery opened the doors to today, the company culture and values are what steers the company in the right direction. The culture and values are not only spoken by all team members, they are put into action each and every day. Coastal Greenery has extended personal attention, unrivaled horticultural expertise and dependable service to valued Golden Isle clients since its conception. Jeffrey Johns, owner and president, has continually made quality workmanship—not mass marketing—his main focus. With quality being the core of the company, building relationships with clients and team members is certainly a close second in the company core values. As a result, Jeffrey’s “little company” has grown primarily through word of mouth, expanding to become one of the largest, most reputable landscape maintenance companies in Southeast Georgia. Coastal Greenery’s clients appreciate the firm’s high expectations, industry expertise, exemplary communication, and uncompromising integrity. The team’s knowledge of landscape material, native plants and grasses, the ever-changing climate, as well as their pro-active approach to landscapes keeps Coastal Greenery leading the landscape industry in the Golden Isles.
