Our Commitment to You
Green Velvet Lawn & Tree Care Ltd. in Vernon BC has been family owned and operated since 1975. In 2007, longtime employee Joel Campbell and his wife Leticia assumed ownership and have been committed to providing the same level of expertise and customer service that Green Velvet is known for. Examples of Green Velvet’s attention to natural beauty and plant health can be seen throughout the Okanagan.
Joel has a sound horticultural background and is a qualified Wildlife and Danger Tree Assessor and a Certified Arborist. Joel is always happy to take the time to explain practical approaches when dealing with plant health issues. We continue to keep pace with modern arborist practices and certifications.
Green Velvet Lawn & Tree Care has always been proud to use the softest and most effective products available. These include many organic and natural products that are implemented in lawn, tree and shrub, and fruit tree care.
Our fine-tuned knowledge of local planting zones and weather patterns allow us to maintain a solid reputation for outstanding professional expertise in lawn services and yard maintenance.
It is a pleasure to serve the communities of Vernon, Coldstream & Lumby, serving both residential & commercial clients.
