Oberstadt Landscapes

For the past 28 years, Oberstadt Landscapes has operated with premier landscape installation, landscape maintenance, and as a garden center promoting truly unique landscapes.  I personally want to thank you for the opportunities you have given me and my team members to provide you with services over the years.  We want you to know we deeply appreciate your trust in Oberstadt Landscapes for your landscaping needs.


It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Oberstadt Landscapes is scaling back its operations, effective as of today.  The major change will be the elimination of the installation of patios, walkways, retaining walls, etc.  I will still be available to design and oversee these types of projects, however, these projects would be subcontracted out through Oberstadt Landscapes.  I will continue to create designs for your landscape needs with our team members installing the finest plant material.  See More...
