Teufel Landscape has proudly been providing quality environmental solutions since 1890, when Gustav Teufel began a small gardening business out of his home in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon, shortly after arriving in the Pacific Northwest from his native Germany. Since that humble beginning in a greenhouse next to his home, five generations of the Teufel family has nurtured and added to the legacy of love for the land and growing beautiful plants. Today, Teufel Landscape remains a local, family-owned business passionately committed to continuing the family tradition of excellence and superior quality set by their forefathers over more than one hundred years ago. Teufel prides itself on high-quality work, delivering each project with technical environmental solutions at the forefront of landscape design.
