The Greenery was honored for its contributions to the Wharf Street Redevelopment Project in Bluffton. The project was featured as a Southern Living “Best Community Revitalization” neighborhood in the magazine’s August issue.

In December 2011, about 100 employees from The Greenery donated their service to install roughly 550 plants, shrubs and trees, more than 10,000 square feet of sod, 600 feet of steel edging, more than 80 cubic yards of mulch and plantation gravel mix, and 60 concrete pavers at the site.

The Wharf Street Redevelopment Project consists of six affordable, energy-efficient cottages built on more than a half-acre of land between Wharf and Roberson streets. This project transformed two blighted structures into a coastal cottage neighborhood. The $1.2 million grant-funded project features homes ranging from 330 square feet to 1,551 square feet.

“All The Greenery employees who participated in this project felt honored to help transform these houses into homes where children can play in the yards and families can gather together,” said Greenery president Lee Edwards. “Southern Living’s recognition validates all our hard work.”
