This landscaping company started as a hobby for me. I went to school and to seminars and to conferences and more classes. But ultimately I learned this business from my crew. They have over 150 years of experience between the 10 of them.
I have learned how to analyze the soil grade FIRST. We make the necessary grade changes to ensure all structures are safely protected. If this does not happen then homes and businesses must deal with water damage which can lead to health issues. We have learned that water is something to be respected. It can erode slopes, and cause severe damage to structures, roads, existing patios, sidewalks, and driveways. We ensure these systems are buried correctly to keep them out of sight and we show you how to maintain gutters, downspouts, and outlet basins. Our maintenance crew can do this as part of the cleanup visits in the Spring and Fall.
Then secondly we take calculated measures to ensure the soil is ready for what comes next. Bases for patios, steps, walls, and sidewalks are properly engineered to ensure the integrity of your investment for many years to come. We look at soil pH, tilth, organic material levels and available nutrients for garden beds and lawns. We add the necessary amendments and till the soil when necessary to ensure your plant material has an excellent growing environment.
Then the fun begins. We interview you and learn about your needs and wants. We create a landscape design that adds just the right amount of color, texture and line changes to help create your happy place. This might include patios, walkways, seat walls, retaining walls, water features, fire pits, pergolas, outdoor kitchens, garden beds, lighting, paver edging, colorful containers and more.
We do this while maintaining the proper proportion, and creating focal points while adding the proper art and other whimsical items to ensure the outdoor space reflect the owner's personality and desired level of maintenance.
