We consider every landscape a unique opportunity to maintain a green, sustainable, and environmentally healthy landscape to be enjoyed for future generations. The key word is enjoy. A balcony with beautiful potted plants, a courtyard with a water feature or restful sitting area, a front yard, a back yard, or several acres of land can provide enjoyment and add to the quality of life. Plants produce oxygen, provide food and shelter for wildlife and even offer a cool place to sit in the shade.
On May 15th, we celebrated thirty years in the landscape industry. The company began as a plant and tree installation firm in 1985, developed a niche in commercial and residential landscape construction, and branched out into landscape maintenance almost twenty years ago. "We were fortunate to start our business when we did," says John Barringer. "Charlotte was in building mode and we built a business doing what we loved and formed long-lasting relationships in the community that we still enjoy today. It is not easy for a small business to thrive in the current economic environment, but we continue to learn from our challenges and remain true to our mission to create and maintain beautiful landscapes. Clients tell us that their property is in good hands and that is a great feeling for us too! It is our desire to help you enjoy your yard. So let us know what we are doing right and what we can do better. Are there services you would like for us to add? We want you to have time to get outside and enjoy or set the stage for you to do the things you love to do in your yard. We would enjoy hearing from you: firstname.lastname@example.org.
