Introduction: I am an outdoor loving, efficiently working, reliable guy. I've designed and developed projects, ranging from roof/rain gardens and ponds to native landscapes and traditional layouts for the last 28+ years. I now offer the ability to Design & Build with 9 crews as a part of our team at MALA LLC. We build pools, spools, patios, retaining walls, fireplaces, fire pits, terraces and surrounding landscape and irrigation. We care about what we do and take pride in making sure every aspect of the project is handled with care and respect for our clients and their properties. My team provides adequate attention to detail and makes the entire process of the project an enjoyable experience. With my quarter century of experience, I always develop a great plan, competitive bid, and install the project exactly as designed in the set amount time the client gives me. My crew is amazing and gets the job done with perfection in mind and no hassles.

Mike was very knowledgeable about what to do about my drainage problem around my house. His staff worked quickly! I will use him in the future to install another drain in the back of my house. Thank you!

Michael Ashley and his crew did an amazing job on our patio! They were able to come out here and get it done quick while still ensuring high quality work. Everything look great. He was very communicative the whole way through the project and his crew was professional. He was on site during the digger stages of the project to ensure it was done the way he wanted and was there to answer any questions myself or my husband had. At the he spread the top soil around where it was needed most and gave advice on what we should do next to restore our yard. Will definitely hire again in the future to help me out with landscaping the rest of the property.

Tree Planting

Michael was very responsive and helpful. He delivered my tree and his crew showed up that day and planted it. Great experience!

Land Leveling and Grading

Mike and his crew were by far the most professional for my tree trimming needs and the dirt grading I needed under my deck. They knew what they were doing, went above and beyond what they quoted me, anf made sure I was happy! Very satisfied! I will be using them again in the future for the other projects we identified on my list!

Michael Ashley landscaping provided a detailed and very specific landscape plan that only a true professional could provide. His narrative instructing the planting of various plants and shrubs and locations was amazing. Would hire again

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Sure. Most typical residential landscape plans are $300 - $400 for 1/3rd acre lot. If the project is larger than that, I can work hourly at $85/hr. Design fees can be refunded partially or fully if I build your project.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Introductions and find out a little bit about a person's background and family. Then, I get right down to business and explore the goals, wants, needs and defined budget for the project. Everyone is busy and there is not a lot of time to waste. I also strongly appreciate referrals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a (BLA) bachelor degree in Landscape Architecture (5 year degree program that is now considered a Master's for the same work). I also minored in Horticulture and am passionate about plants.
