About Us

Nor-Tex Greenscapes was organized in 2013 after partners Nick Sowell & Drew Shafer saw an opportunity to build a business in Landscape Services using their combined passion for quality landscapes and experience in both residential and commercial real estate. Though the business started out as two guys pushing lawn mowers, the business has grown exponentially in its first few years. By assembling crews filled with high-quality people that care about their work, Nor-Tex has been able to exceed the quality that high-end residential and commercial clients demand. Our aim moving forward, is to further our focus on the installation and maintenance of high-end residential and commercial properties.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to Listen for, Understand, Create, Execute, and Maintain our clients’ vision for their property.
