It all began with a little old church…
When Ruthie and Berry Edwards stumbled on a quaint little church for sale in Ridegland, they knew it had to be theirs. Fate was on their side when they discovered that the historic building, located next to the Old Bethlehem Church, was conveniently listed for sale.
So in 1973, the Edwards purchased the church and moved it 28 miles by flatbed truck and barge to its current location on William Hilton Parkway. They bought the former Hillside Landscape Nursery and placed the church on the grounds to be used as office space.
With a staff of six employees, a few old pickup trucks and the desire to do something different, the Edwards have positioned The Greenery as the premier landscaping business of the Low country.
The Greenery’s commitment to quality customer service and in-depth horticultural knowledge sets our company apart from the rest. Our full-time staff of horticulturists, master gardeners and consultants are here to assist with your next outdoor project, large or small.

Ruthie and Berry’s son Lee Edwards is now the CEO of The Greenery. Lee has grown up learn-ing the ins and outs of the industry and he’s ready to provide new leadership for the fast-growing company. The Greenery, Inc. celebrated their 40th anniversary in February of 2013. Founder Berry Edwards commented, “Who would have thought our little landscape company back in the 70s would be what it is today!”
