About Us

Hudson Valley Native Landscaping is a team of landscape design and plant care specialists.  We are passionate about bringing out the natural beauty of nature for people to enjoy. We are industry leaders in native gardens and tree care with a focus on ecology and beauty.

Independently owned, Hudson Valley Native Landscaping is a division of Poison Ivy Patrol Specialty Landscaping in High Falls, NY.

In 2009, John Messerschmidt left a long career in NYC high end construction management to live closer to the earth, in rural Ulster County. He has partnered with forward thinking professionals in all areas of horticulture and environmental science to offer people a healthy, natural habitat in their own back yards, complete with beautiful gardens.

Hudson Valley Native Landscaping currently serves Dutchess, Ulster, Columbia, Greene and Orange counties.
