Design/Installation

When a school needed a patio built, Brian Cressy was ready to do more than build it.

“What goes around comes around.” That’s what Brian Cressy’s mom used to remind him when he was younger, and the owner of Green Horizon Landscaping takes advice to heart. He focuses on spreading a lot of good around, and what comes as a result are rewarding experiences and community connections.

So when The Contoocook School approached Cressy about helping build a patio, he was ready to dig in. The school had run into funding problems before the start of the installation, so Cressy reached out to suppliers and secured donated materials. Then, he helped train a valuable crew to help with the installation – the students.

The project was a class project, says Cressy, who donated the labor, supplies and a few field lessons to complete the 15-by-15 square patio. “I went into the classroom and gave instruction on the process involved and they helped us get it done,” he says.

Cressy doesn’t do the work to get a pat on the back. But being a community steward has elevated his company’s reputation in the area. People want to work with people who do good. His intentions are authentic. “I try to donate our time in a number of ways to help different organizations in our community – people see that we are giving back,” he says.
