A carefully designed and executed lighting plan can add drama and value to your property, whether it’s defining an outdoor entertainment area, highlighting beautiful trees and architectural features or path lights for safety and security. Ask about upgrading to our high performance, energy efficient LED landscape lighting systems.

Water Features

Standing water and poor drainage is unhealthy for plants (think root rot) and people (mosquitos).  Something as simple as drain tile and a dry well can be an easy fix for that nasty, muddy wet spot in your yard. Rainwater Harvesting systems and permeable pavers can be an environmentally responsible and viable part of the stormwater management plan required by most municipalities when additional impervious hardscape areas are part of the plan. Or, could be we’re talking about the soothing sounds of a fountain near the patio to help ease away the tensions of a tough day at the office, or maybe you’d like to talk about a waterfall with a pond and stream to give your landscape the full benefits, excitement & relaxation of water in motion… Whatever your water garden desires might be, we have solutions ranging from cost effective to truly elegant!

Planting

When it comes to plants, we are all about ‘Right Plant/Right Place’ and we are fanatics about proper planting. Count on us to select and install a beautiful selection of hardy, site tolerant and low maintenance varieties in landscape ready sizes. Need a new shade tree to help cool your home, or maybe something to replace the Ash you lost to Emerald Ash Borer? How about a new flowering ornamental tree to replace that long suffering crabapple? Flowering shrubs and evergreens to update the overgrown foundation plantings your builder installed? Or maybe a bed of shade tolerant perennials or groundcover for that area where the lawn won’t grow? Best of all, we’ll guarantee what we plant for up to 2 years!
