Certified Organic Landscaping
Since our founding, one of our Core Values has been Sustainability. In the last 10 years, the Landscaping Services Team at RiverWoods Exeter has pursued a holistic, natural regimen of care for our grounds and lawns, using cutting-edge organic alternatives to synthetic products. This effort allows our residents and staff to enjoy the natural environment in which we are located without exposure to potentially harmful products.
RiverWoods Exeter is working towards accreditation with the New England Organic Farming Association, to be the only certified organic organization in New Hampshire, and the first CCRC in the nation — and the world — to utilize organic estate management procedures.
Our Sustainable Landscaping Program has resulted in:
- Reduced water consumption
- Elimination of fertilizers that harm the Great Bay and other waterways.
- Enhanced/repaired organic structure of our soil
- Reduction of the RiverWoods Exeter carbon footprint
- Minimized contact by employee and residents with synthetic compounds
- Upcycle of kitchen waste into useful compost
