Make a Difference Landscaping knows that you want to enjoy your lawn... not tend to it. That's why we make it easy for you with dependable, reliable and dedicated service. The biggest investment you'll most likely make in your lifetime is your home. Most Real Estate professionals will tell you that it's the "curb-appeal" that helps to make or break the value of your home. And "curb-appeal" means landscaping. Not only do we help individual homeowners improve their curb appeal but we also service commercial properties and homeowners associations.
We have multiple crews that are devoted to their area of expertise: mowing, landscape construction, irrigation, landscape lighting, and snow removal. The work week is typically Monday through Thursday which leaves a day open for rescheduling due to uncooperative weather or even holidays.
