Tree trimming

Regularly trimming your trees can keep them healthy and looking their best.

Shrub pruning

Professional pruning keeps your shrubs healthy and looking their best.

Trim and skim your palm trees

Install new sod or lawn

Installing and maintaining a lush green yard is one of the easiest ways to add value to your property.

Install artificial turf

Artificial grass looks great and provides many advantages to having a real lawn, including zero water and maintenance.

Lay down a fresh bed of mulch

A fresh bed of mulch does a lot more than improve the appearance of your property: it retains moisture and helps control evaporation, insulates the soil from extreme weather conditions, and provides your plants with essential nutrients.

Create a drought-tolerant landscape

Installing drought tolerant landscaping around your home helps conserve precious water and keeps your water bills low.

Create a native landscape

A landscape full of native species gives your property a more natural appearance. In addition, many native species are drought tolerant.

Install a sprinkler and irrigation system

A sprinkler system allows you to water your yard more efficiently and with less trouble. A professional irrigation system can help prevent soil erosion.

Create paths and walkways

Paths and walkways make it easy to get around your property.

Add a pond, fountain, or other water feature

A water feature can add some “wow” factor to your landscaping.

Add outdoor lighting
