You'll find our staff to be professional, skilled, experienced and knowledgeable. We treasure our reputation for unbridled customer satisfaction and want to make sure you are happy. Our services include: * Grading At LandArt, we recognize that grading is the basis of all landscaping. From rough grading of larger tracts of land to finish grading around a few small shrubs, our installers pay attention to every detail to make sure everything is picture perfect. * Lush Plantscapes LandArt landscape architects create fabulous designs using trees, shrubs and flowers that are native to the area. Our goal is to place your home in a setting that is not only visually aesthetic but of low maintenance, so you have more time to enjoy life. * Hydroseeding and Sod Looking for a rich, lush lawn? We offer you a choice of sod or hydroseeding. With sod, you get the healthy, mature grass you want immediately. Hydroseeding takes a few weeks to establish itself but gives you added economy, so you can invest more in your plantscape. * Distinctive Water Gardens and Fountains There is nothing like a stunning water fountain, cascading waterfall or babbling brook to soothe the soul and please the eye. We build water gardens that calm and relax. They provide you with hours of tranquility while welcoming deer, raccoons, fish and other wildlife. * Beautification and Maintenance of Earth Ponds LandArt transforms retention ponds and still water into areas that provide hours of enjoyment. We drain and recut existing areas as well as install sand, liners and boulders to create a property that looks beautiful. After reclamation, it can be used for boating and stocked for fishing. What's more? It increases the value of your home! * Natural Sunken Fire Pits Looking for an informal, rustic area to gather with family and friends? There is nothing like a sunken fire pit for barbeques or bonfires. * Handsome Hot Tub Surrounds LandArt can camouflage your existing hot tub or create a design that complements a new installation. We make your hot tub appear as though it is built right into the patio using pavers, flat stones or wood. * Charming Walkways and Terraces Using natural stone like slate or brick pavers, LandArt creates walkways, terraces and whole patios that are breathtaking and durable. Your installation can be completed with sand or asphalt joints to achieve the aesthetic effect you choose. * Distinctive Stone Furniture Stone furniture is commanding, unusual and a conversation piece. Stone furniture is a unique addition to your garden environment. Our artisans work arduously with special chainsaws. They cut, grind, slash and sand to fashion a one-of-a-kind furniture that serves as a unique accent to your surroundings. * Large Tree Spading Are you tired of planting small trees that take years to mature? We have the ability to plant trees on your property that are up to thirty feet tall. * Intelligent Irrigation Protecting and maintaining the beautiful environment around your home requires watering. At LandArt, we install fully automated sprinkler systems as well as drip irrigation. We see to it that your landscape flourishes by ensuring it gets the optimal amount of water where and when it is needed. * Attractive Retaining Walls LandArt designs and builds new retaining walls from natural-look boulders and fieldstone, timbers or dimensional stone. We also replace old walls that have deteriorated with strong, new materials. * Steep Bank Management Our knowledgeable designers and technicians know how to deal with difficult land situations. We use large earth movers to return sediment to its former location on a slope. We then rough grade the soil to deter water flow. After hydraulically installing our bonded fiber matrix control system, we plant special seed mixtures to tame your hillside. * Thoughtful Wetland Restoration LandArt works with the DNR and the state to protect your property. We plant wetland areas, and then let them mature on their own. We can also extend or create wetlands. * Low Voltage Lighting We enhance your new outdoor environment by wiring and placing the right light fixtures. They provide a touch of elegance while embellishing the design. The result is an ambience that is both charming and relaxing.

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Tips for Homeowners When Should You Outsource to a Professional Landscape Contractor? Landscaping adds value to your home and your neighborhood. The right landscaping can increase the value of your home by 15 percent, allowing owners to recoup 100 to 200 percent of their investment. Your landscape is one of the first things prospective buyers notice when they visit your house. Realtors estimate that 95 percent of home shoppers will not even get out of their car if the house lacks "curb appeal." Reliable references for quality contractors often come from family and friends. You can also consult the internet under "Landscape" or contact your local, state or national trade associations for referrals. Interview several companies - you will learn from this process. Your landscape represents a real estate investment and asset. A landscape contractor can offer a variety of services, including design, installation and maintenance of your property based on your specific needs and requests. Many firms have landscape architects and designers on staff, offering the expertise to create and orchestrate the complete design, installation and maintenance of the most complex landscapes. Follow these 10 steps before you hire a landscape contractor: 1. Decide how a landscape contractor can help you. Many homeowners do not realize what a landscape contractor can do to help them improve their living environment. Landscape contractors not only install plant material, but install hardscape material, including patios, decks, retaining walls, gazebos and irrigation systems. 2. Ask how long the company has been in business. Professional landscape companies should have employees with either a secondary education in Ornamental Horticulture or several years of experience. Additionally, professional companies are most often active members in national or state landscape associations. Affiliation indicates that a company is interested in excellence and progressive thought. Ask the firm for a list of references and professional affiliations. Look at each of the jobs listed to see if the work is the size, style and quality you desire. 3. Select a landscape company that is certified and insured. If required by state law, the company should be certified. This will assure you that the contractor is accountable to you, that the company is knowledgeable, operating legally, and employs staff that have passed examinations demonstrating experience, knowledge and a level of professionalism. 4. Decide what you are looking for in a landscape design. Do you want an area for entertaining, an extension of your living space, a low maintenance landscape or a high impact design that is colorful. (IMPORTANT!)Determine your budget before you speak with a landscape professional. If you do not know what you want in a landscape design, a qualified professional should be able to help bring your needs and landscape style preferences into focus. 5. Concerning guarantees ... Find out what is and is not covered and how long the guarantee remains in effect. Proof of insurance for workers' compensation, liability and vehicles should be available to you. Check a company's limits and policy expiration. Ask if they have an active safety program to minimize accidents. Under some circumstances, you could be liable for mishaps or accidents which occur on your property. 6. Visit a job in progress. Ask to see a project that will be similar to the work you will request. You want to hire a company that does good work, reflects professionalism and integrity. Examine the quality of the job--and see if the crew's appearance and job presence are acceptable. 7. Ask the company to provide a written plan and/or contract. Prior to making any agreement, have the landscape contractor, designer, and/or architect prepare the details in writing. This plan can include the design, plant material to be used, all costs, a time table and the terms of payment. You have the right to amend the contract. 8. Tell the company if you want to care for areas of the landscape yourself. Once your new landscape is installed, you may wish to become more involved as a homeowner by maintaining the landscape yourself. If you want to care for certain landscaped areas, tell this to the company. 9. Know which services are provided in ongoing maintenance. Ongoing maintenance is necessary in order to protect your investment. You can do it, or you can ask the company to do the work. Generally, ongoing maintenance involves mowing, fertilizing, pest control, among other services. 10. Make LandArt Your First Call!- Then- Relax youre with friends!
