Our Services

Your outdoor space is an essential area of your home. When your outdoor space doesn’t function properly or is less than you desire, you can start to be dissatisfied with your home as a whole. We offer full landscape design and management services so that you can enjoy your custom outdoor paradise all year.

All of our projects begin with understanding your needs and what you want to accomplish. Do you want a sanctuary or a place for entertainment? Perhaps you would like a mix of both. Whatever your goal is for your outdoor space, we’re here to design it from scratch and bring your ideas to life.

Decades of Experience

We have decades of experience and have the skill to create designs and amazing outdoor living spaces that are enjoyable for your family and friends. These spaces can be outdoor kitchens, patio areas, entertaining areas, putting greens, kids play areas, back gardens, water features, front gardens, front entry spots, courtyards, retaining walls, hardscapes and more. We can even assist with those difficult areas that are wasted and you are not sure what to do with, transforming them into vibrant beautiful spaces that everyone can enjoy.

Landscape Maintenance

Our lawn and garden care program includes practices such as: mulch-mowing (leaving the chopped-up grass to return nutrients to your lawn); if you like we can mow high to encourage deeper roots and crowd out weeds. We offer regular maintenance services for landscape beds including weeding, pruning, and general cleanup.

Lawn Renovation

We can renovate your lawn so it’s easier to maintain and safer for the environment. We build healthy soil that promotes a healthy lawn that doesn’t require excess pesticides and fertilizers. For complete lawn renovations, we’ll remove your old grass, amend the existing soil with organic matter, and replant with a west coast specific grass seed blend or sod. In some cases, we can renovate your lawn by thatching, aerating, and over-seeding.

Landscape Design

Whether it’s your design or ours, we’ll work with you from start to finish to create a customized landscape for your home. We’ll visit your site, discuss your needs, and offer a complete landscape design-and-build plan.

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are often an essential part of landscaping for both their functional and aesthetic use. They can add incredible beauty to an area while providing the structural support for a sloped yard, preventing soil erosion or covering up unattractive yet essential home components. Retaining walls are also a regular feature used in custom garden designs. Whatever your need we have the knowledge and experience to design and build your custom retaining wall.

Hardscapes

Paving Stones define beauty, elegance and durability for driveways, pool decks, walkways and patios. Hardscapes will customize and create exquisite and unique designs to suit Your Life & Style. Make your project a success by hiring the right professionals. We’re ready to install your paving stone and custom hardscapes project.
