Landscape Design
& Installation
Any time for design. Seasonally for installations. Have your shrubs taken over the house? Has new construction taken out a good portion of your yard? Or are you just ready for a new look? We specialize in high-style, low-maintenance landscape design so you can be a lazy gardener.

Pond installation All season Design & installation of waterfalls, streams and fountains. Listen to a babbling brook instead of traffic noise.

Pruning specialist 3x/season: fall, spring, summer Keep evergreens and deciduous shrubs in shape with proper pruning techniques. No indiscriminate shearing or shrub “balls” (unless you want that)!
