SOURCING, HAND SELECTION & DELIVERY
We believe that taking our time to source healthy, well-structured, exceptional landscape plantings is the most important consideration of our business. We coordinate with growers and sales contacts from nurseries locally and afar to professionally source, hand-select, and deliver landscape plantings that will thrive with the correct care and attention.
Installations commence with staging of the new landscape for client approval. Our expert installation practices ensure proper planting depth, root ball preparation, planting height, as well as best visual presentation and placement of new plantings.
We have extensive experience aerating and overseeding lawns using fescue blend grass seed engineered specifically for Richmond’s climate to ensure the very best results for our clients.
We are your go to landscape outfit to get your existing landscape back in shape and looking its very best. Whether it is once a year or quarterly, our team will get your property manicured and looking its best through necessary pruning, trimming, edging, dead-wooding, and mulching.
We take great care to educate our clients about all options during the design and installation process of our hardscape projects. Prior to project commencement, we highlight different price points, design options, and various surface materials, scope of the project, as well as other landscape elements associated with the project. We complete a variety of hardscaping projects including patios, walkways, front stoops, retaining and seating walls, dry stack walls, outdoor fireplaces and fire pits, outdoor grill stations, pool decks, driveway renovations, cobblestone driveway borders, culverts, and aprons.
We specialize in designing and installing irrigation systems that efficiently water lawns and landscapes of all sizes. Our cumulative landscape expertise enables us to design systems that address planting conditions, runoff, and that take into account sun and shade areas.
We specialize in lighting system arrangements to best highlight the architecture of residences, and the textures, heights, and various shapes of property landscapes. We have the expertise to provide the best lighting systems on the market to meet our client’s needs, desires and budget.
Through our partnerships with several local welders and metal fabricators, we are able to design and install custom metal work projects. These projects take into account client desires and requirements to best suit their respective landscapes.
We collaborate with clients and our carpenters to design, build, and install a variety of high quality custom projects including garden sheds, fences, decks, pergolas, arbors, screens, and raised garden planters.
TREE REMOVAL, TRIMMING, AND STUMP GRINDING
We are proficient in completing tree removal and trimming projects of all sizes, removal of tree stumps, excavation of the stump grindings, and backfilling of respective excavated areas to ensure no future settling of the ground.
Each grading project is carefully assessed to account for drainage away from buildings and residences, changes in elevation, removal and delivery of soil as needed, and all other landscape considerations to achieve the desired contouring of the land.
Land clearing projects typically include large tree removal, brush clearing, grinding and excavation of stumps, backfilling of excavated areas with pressure compacted soil, followed by grading and any other necessary remediation of the land for intended purposes.
We design and install a variety of custom raised garden planters based upon our client’s desires, material preferences and the necessary conditions for garden plantings to thrive.
We install premium fescue and zoysia lawns using trusted turf providers with whom we have extremely strong relationships. In order to ensure a superior sod installation, we focus extensively on prepping the ground with premium topsoil/organic, nutrient-rich compost soil mix coupled with lime and fertilizer.
We work with homeowners to install straightforward drainage solutions. Thorough examinations are undertaken to evaluate all drainage issues prior to commencement of work. We work with clients to explain our evaluation and respective drainage solution options in order to ensure a perfectly executed project.
PLANTER DESIGN & INSTALLATION
We coordinate with clients to purchase, deliver, and install planter combinations that both complement and enhance the exterior aesthetics of residences. Plants are hand selected based on client preferences for evergreen, seasonal, or special event arrangements.
