business serving the greater north Tahoe and
Truckee areas for the past 13 years. Over the
past several years, Green Envy, Inc. has expanded

relationships with local building contractors,
architects, engineers and designers to better
serve our clients needs and to provide a network
of resources from which to work.
from the central coast of California to the
north Tahoe area in 1996, John Crus, the founder
of Green Envy, Inc., was pursuing a career
in ecological sciences and was seasonally working
with Yosemite National Park and the California
Department of Fish and Game in Bishop, California.
In the winter seasons, John Crus spent a significant
amount of time surfing and skiing, both internationally
and within California, as well as developing
a home maintenance business (North Tahoe Winter
Home Care). John Crus stated, "I had received
my degree in Restoration Ecology and Wildlife
Biology and was pursuing a career in field
work in the Sierra." Eventually, Crus suggested, "I
was constantly on the move from Project to
Project and decided that Graduate school and
academic pursuits were not my goal. I wanted
to be more settled, with time to focus on my
community, family and personal outdoor pursuits." Green
Envy, Inc. was developed shortly thereafter.
At that time, Green Envy, Inc. was a business
of four employees, one truck and a small trailer.
As time passed, Green Envy, Inc. became well
established within the construction industry
of the Tahoe area. Currently, Green Envy, Inc.
employs nearly 20 seasonal laborers, managers
and administrators; and operates a number of
vehicles, machines and equipment.
Inc. currently focuses on landscape construction
and landscape maintenance services. We also
offer consulting, design, BMP and restoration
services. Our focus on customer service is
unsurpassed. We strive to provide high quality
landscape development with an emphasis on native
and locally hardy plant materials. We have
focused on "green" building since our
inception and use only organic fertilization
techniques and conservation minded landscape
irrigation. Most products used within our Projects
are sourced locally, including the locally
propagated plant materials that dominate our
landscape development. We have more recently
increased our focus on offering unique and
specialized hardscape products such as concrete
development, mortar set patios, sitting wall
features and fence development. Our bottom
line is customer satisfaction and quality work.
