MEET GORDON CLARK
Gordon Clark, owner, completed the one year Environmental Horticultural program at Lake Washington Institute of Technology, and is an ISA Certified Arborist and WSNLA Certified Horticulturist. He is also a member of the Olympic Orchard Society, Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides, Plant Amnesty, the Maple Society, and Northwest Horticultural Society.
Long before starting Clark Horticultural in 1999, organic was a way of life for me. When I entered the Horticulture Program in 1998 it was with the idea of changing careers to some things I liked doing–working outside and enhancing natural beauty.
Now after twenty years as a plantsman, I can see the results of long term organic care in many of my clients' gardens, and my own. It's healthy, it's beautiful, it's natural; and I get to work in this environment every day. I have the peace of mind that comes from working with nature.

My landscape management company specializes in organic methods. In a nutshell, this means we don't use synthetic chemicals. Our focus is on regularly scheduled residential landscape maintenance of plants, trees, shrubs, vines, perennials and bamboo.
Clark Horticultural is a member of the Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides. We use mechanical and non-toxic methods for removing pests and weeds from the garden.
All our staff have received special training in pruning and safe working methods.
