Your Landscape Design

Oftentimes, we’ll strive to stick with the Cape Cod theme that you’ll see across the Cape. We utilize small shrubs and bushes near the home, and larger trees in the yard (It’s wise to keep trees far away from the home, since they can cause damage in a temperamental storm. We use flowers to accent the planters throughout your property. We also use edging and hardscaping to keep the lines of your landscape clean and tight. We can also incorporate landscape lighting to make your landscape glow. We’ll work with you to build the perfect landscape to suit your Cape Cod home.
