People were created to live in a garden. Life isn’t as easy as it was in Eden, but with careful planning (and, yes, some necessary weeding) landscapes today can still offer an inviting welcome or a quiet place to rest. Good landscapes provide extra living space where you can enjoy time with your family and friends 


Low garden walls and patios are central components of many landscapes, providing year-round structure and interest. Our hardscapes improve the stability and usability of your outdoor living spaces. (If you have an especially big project in mind, we should mention - currently, we’re not insured to build large load bearing walls… maybe someday. We can help you find someone for that part of the project.)

Whether you’re searching for a specimen to add to your collection or preparing to retire an aged giant, we can help. Equipped for both pruning and removals, our team is eager to keep your trees healthy and safe. We carry the licensing and insurance required for tree pruning in Manhattan, KS.
