Choosing a Landscaping Contractor: A well-kept landscape adds value to your home and can increase the value of your home dramatically. When selecting a landscaper for your home, consider all the services you might need. Do you need something as simple planting a few flowers and maintaining or mowing the lawn? Or something more elaborate as landscape design, water features, aquatic plants, retaining wall, fences, lighting and irrigation systems? Your budget is an obvious factor, but experience, expertise, and a professional landscape service can mean the difference between an eyesore and a beautiful, lush landscape. All contractors on this site are licensed and bonded, but should you use another contractor, be sure to verify their Washington State Contractor's License.

Outstanding job of transforming our entire property into a wonderful oasis that we love and enjoy.

We've already received many compliments on our new landscaping. ~ Tacoma, WA
Terrific. Excellent communication at all phases and excellent vision to build just what I imagined.
I was especially happy with the rock wall they installed and the lighting effects in my backyard are stunning.
Very hard workers who don't waste time.
I've added substantially to the value of my property and get to enjoy the view too! ~ Auburn, WA
