About Us

OUR MISSION: Since 2007, EcoUrban has been dedicated to making New Orleans’ landscapes more beautiful and sustainable.

Our landscaping installation and maintenance services will enhance your outdoor space while making it more productive and better equipped to thrive in New Orleans’ climate. We want to help you create a space that brings both value and beauty to your home, using healthy soil, superior irrigation, quality materials, expert plant selection and more.

EcoUrban is more than a quality landscaping company — we’re the only company in New Orleans that specializes in eco-friendly landscaping practices. In addition to years of experience and a dedicated staff, we provide rainwater harvesting, non-toxic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides, native and edible garden planting, organic soil production and more.  We’ll not only complete the job on time and on target; our team of licensed horticultural and irrigation contractors will give your outdoor space a greater level of health, beauty and longevity.

  • Colin Smith

    Maintenance Manager

    From poboys to palmettos, Colin is a true New Orleans son. He graduated from the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts having studied sculpture and quickly brought his creative talents to the film and festival industry. Working as a prop builder and set designer, he was able to exercise and expand his skills in general construction and carpentry. While working in film, a position in the Greens department opened, affording him the opportunity to explore his other great passion: working with plants.  Colin later served in the United States Army Reserve as a mechanic, but upon returning home he realized his love of nature would define his future path. Colin has spent the last 15 years in residential and commercial landscaping, developing an intimate understanding of local horticulture. Colin’s experience, commitment and vision make every EcoUrban project a masterpiece.
