Landscaping - Design and Installation Process

To assure a successful outdoor living space, we have a general guideline for how the actual design process takes place here at Culver's. Our landscape design services are free to clients wishing to have Culver's landscape install their NEW landscape, but NOT limited to homeowners wishing to install it themselves. A design fee will occur and can be estimated for the client that would prefer a DIY project.

We will offer you the proper plant guides necessary and answer any questions you may have. With a full service retail garden center and greenhouse (where we grow almost 100% of our annuals) the options are endless on fulfilling your individual needs.

Specialty & Proper Equipment For The Job

We take great pride in the equipment we use to get the job done correctly the first time. At Culver's SAFETY is a number one concern and MONTHLY meetings are held to ensure the proper use of equipment and the safety of each staff member. You do NOT want to create a new landscape without close attention to the specifications for the material involved. Each piece of retaining wall stone for example may have a different specification on how to install it. At Culver's we adhere to all of these SPECIFICATIONS individually and therefore ensure your project is done in a safe and timely manner. It is IMPORTANT for us to create something that will last for many years down the road.
