What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We do not have a standard pricing system for our services. The price is determind by the client's budget and their needs.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first step in our process is to see the property. Once we see what we are working with we are able to assess the needs of the customer based on their desires, budget and we can then give them an accurate quote. We work hard to make sure that every client is happy with our services.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I received a degree in Horticultural Sciences and love working with plants, flowers and the outdoors. After working 40 years in the business, I have a lot of experience too and I know what kind of plants work for different types of areas. I've also dealt with plant disease and insect infestation such as identification of gamma derma, bores, lethal yellow, white fly and other deficiencies. I can also identify most insects and fungi.
In addition, we are very ecofriendly and when all possible we strive to use natural products for instance fire ants. We use a birth control method to eliminate your fire ants which is not harmful to animals, plants and people. This is one of many environmentally-friendly, patented products that is only available to All Terrain Landscaping.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been working in the industry since the 70s and started the business in the early 80s. It's been a long time passion and I enjoy creating beautiful landscape environments for my clients. I always involve my clients in the design process to get their input and thoughts.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with every type of customer imaginable including pro golfers to famous singers to everyday professionals and more. We work with cities, churches, synagogue, schools and much more. I work with my client's budget and make appropriate recommendations based on what they want to spend. As a designer, I feel that it's important to have a budget in order to come up with a design that fits within their parameters.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently worked on a renovation for Joan Grande, Ariana Grande's mother in Boca Raton, Florida. I worked hand-to-hand with Joan to prepare for her daughter's arrival to South Florida during Christmas time including getting an 18 foot Christmas tree to be delivered on the spare of the moment.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It's important for customers to hire a company with experience and lots of years under their belt. We are a long standing company serving South Florida for four decades and have a solid reputation in our community for doing excellent, high-quality work. We own multiple acres in Parkland and have more than 15 acres of plants to view.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It's important that customers know what they want to achieve in their landscape design and have a budget in mind. I would be happy to discuss any project and provide free estimates.
