Schucker’s accreditation as a Green Roof Professional contributes to Eco Earth Design’s position as New Jersey’s leader in the rapidly emerging industry of green roof systems.

An extension of the existing roof, a green roof system involves a high-quality waterproofing and root repellant system, drainage system, filter cloth, lightweight growing medium and plants. Green roofs have the ability to provide a wide range of public benefits, including improved air quality and a reduction in energy usage. Additionally, property owners that implement green roof systems at their buildings are able to realize a return on their investment through a reduction in maintenance expenses.

In order to receive the Green Roof Professional accreditation, Schucker was required to pass four training courses that were developed by multidisciplinary committees of green roof experts drawn from fields such as civil and structural engineering, architecture, horticulture, roofing and waterproofing and landscape architecture. His accreditation is a natural progression for Eco Earth Design as the company continues to grow in the area of sustainable landscape design and development.

Eco Earth Design collaborates with architects, building managers, contractors, engineers, green consultants and property owners to create an integrated approach to landscape development. In addition to Schucker, the company is comprised of a highly qualified and diverse group of passionate professionals dedicated to creating and building outdoor spaces that are sensitive to the specific site, architecture, environment and lifestyle of its clients.

A division of R&S Landscaping, Eco Earth Design carries forward the company’s 25-year history of customer service. Since its formation in 1984, R&S Landscaping has been committed to environmental balance through innovative technology and green practices. The company is one of New Jersey’s leading providers of high-end, quality service to residential, public, and commercial properties in the areas of design/build, grounds maintenance, irrigation, snow/ice removal, lighting and plant health care.
