Attention to detail is the secret to the successful
installation of our landscape projects.
Following the signing of a Landscape Agreement, a landscape project
is scheduled for installation. It is at this time that we begin
to organize all the materials required for the completion of that
project. We regard this process as being very important. Many plants
are selected locally, especially trees, while many of our shrubs
are selected locally or shipped in from various nurseries throughout
the United States. Whenever possible, plants are hand selected
to meet our expectations. Other materials, such as boulders and
landscape lighting fixtures, are also ordered and selected to meet
the specific needs of each individual project. This process typically
requires a period of two or three weeks to complete, prior to beginning
A typical landscape project is installed in the following order:
1) Completion of all hardscape installation including
driveways,decks, patios, etc.
2) Grading, topsoil installation, landscape bed
3) Sprinkler system installation, underground drain
tile installation, large tree installation
4) Installation of shrubs and perennials
5) Mulching of planting beds and application
of pre-emergent herbicide as needed
6) Sodding of turf areas
Our landscape crews arrive at the job site in well signed, company
trucks, and they are dressed in company shirts so they are easily
identified. We realize that security and privacy is very important
to our clients. Our crews and landscape staff are very respectful,
courteous and professional. Our crews are all well trained and
well experienced. On the average, each of our landscape assistants
has been with our company for a period of 3 or more years. Each
crew has a leader and they are in constant communication with our
management staff and designers via two-way radios and cell phones.
The designer spends a great deal of time on site during construction
to ensure that the project meets our clients expectations.
We work off well contrived plans; nevertheless, changes in the
field are often required in order to maximize the visual impact
or function of our designs.
Most plant materials have a one-year warranty following the completion
of each project: All trees and shrubs, and their respective labor,
have a one-year warranty following their installation. The warranty
period starts as of the date in which the final invoice is processed.
Groundcovers, perennials, annuals and other seasonal color, Flowering
Dogwoods, Canadian Hemlocks, Azaleas and Rhododendrons are not
included in the warranty.
