If left unchecked, leaves can accumulate and damage your lawn. Due to reduced sunlight and lack of water evaporation, mold and fungus can form, wreaking havoc on your landscape.

Leaf clean up can seem like a neverending task. Let the professionals at Locust Ridge Landscape handle your next leaf blowing and clean up project so you don't have to. We will restore your lawn and property to its pristine state.

Leaf Blowing

Spring & Fall Clean Up

Trimming & Edging


Even a well-manicured landscape can use that extra bit of attention to bring it to the next level. Our trimming and edging services are sure to transform any ordinary lawn into a real attention getter.

Our trimming services help to eliminate grass and weeds in areas your lawn mower cannot reach, and we take extra care to avoid damage to surrounding plants and shrubbery. Our edging services help define walkways and flower beds to give your landscape that professional touch.

Trimming & Edging

Mulching


Aside from being aesthetically pleasing to the eye, mulch offers many benefits to your plants and soil. Mulch helps to reduce the amount of water lost to evaporation by protecting your soil from the sun's harsh rays.

As mulch breaks down, it also replenishes your soil with rich nutrients and increases its ability to retain moisture. At Locust Ridge Landscape, we offer a variety of mulches to choose from including brown mulch, black mulch, red mulch, premium tanbark mulch, and playground cover mulch.

Mulching

Pruning & Planting


An important part of maintaining your landscape is through proper and professional tree and shrub pruning. Pruning can transform and shape the growth of trees and shrubs, and Locust Ridge Landscape takes pride in what many consider to be an art form.

Have you always wanted a beautiful flower bed or trees and shrubs to complement your landscape? We also offer professional planting services!

Pruning & Planting

Patios & Hardscapes


All great landscapes begin with a well thought out and executed hardscape at its core. At Locust Ridge Landscape, we offer a variety of hardscape services including patio design, stonework, path and walkways, retaining walls, and much more!

Patios & Hardscapes

Eco-Friendly Lawn Treatment


Our eco-friendly lawn treatment services will help keep your lawn green and healthy while having no negative impact on the environment. We offer a variety of eco-friendly lawn treatment solutions including power seeding, lawn aeration, soil enrichment, and the use of organic fertilizer.

Eco-friendly lawn treatment is most effective with the proper application of both weeding and fertilizing along with the correct timing and care of lawn services appropriate for your type of lawn. You can count on our experience to make your lawn treatment a success!

We had Locust Ridge design and install the landscaping around our new home. From the design process through the install... we found Locust Ridge to be extremely professional, helpful, and very reasonably priced. Working with Bethany to come up with the design was easy, especially since we are new to this area and didn't know what plants would work or look best in our design. She came up with ideas we hadn't thought of that ended up making the finished project look even better than we anticipated. Their computer program was very helpful as we could see what the finished project would look like as we went through the design process and made edits. Vernon and his crew came out and installed the plants, hardscape, mulch, etc - all within two days - and the finished project was perfect. The photos are just a sample; they did the landscaping around the whole house, put in a couple of small retaining walls, and laid flagstones as a walkway around the back. We've already contracted with them for additional work this fall because we know we're going to get great service and a beautiful finished project.read more

My wife and I have been using Vernon, his wife, and the Staff of Locust Ridge Landscape LLC since we moved to the area... for lawn care, snow removal and other special projects. Our front bed is exactly what we wanted, and the back patio fencing, and air conditioning unit cover are great additions and were expertly done. We had a small back block wall changed to stacked stone and it is great. Everything we have had done is beyond our expectations. We are happy to recommend them for any job you need completed. We continue to be thrilled with both the personal interaction and professional services provided.read more

I have had a wonderful experience working with Vernon and Bethany and the team at Locust Ridge Landscape. Last... November, they performed my fall clean up and did the most thorough job of any landscaping company I have employed so far. For example, they actually took the time to do the arduous work of collecting acorns from my deck. After that, I worked with Bethany on a plan to plant new shrubs and flowers in my front lawn flower beds this spring. Bethany was responsive and patient as we went through many variations of potential designs. Those plants are all now growing in nicely. And, most recently, Vernon was able to adjust his schedule to take care of my property when I had to leave unexpectedly in order to travel out of state to care for my elderly father following a hospital stay.In sum, I strongly recommend Locust Ridge! They do thorough work, they listen, they return calls and emails, they are talented landscape designers, and they are compassionate, good people.read more

We're so pleased with the hardscape and plantings which Bethany, Vernon and the rest of LR team have installed. The... curvy path from the back to front was executed perfectly and the fire-pit is a great relaxer as long as it's not too windy! The plants and trees are thriving with only 1 tree loss (which was replaced under warranty). The latest installment was a long, back bed which is coming in nicely and receives compliments from all.Thanks Locust Ridge!read more

I have great experience with the Locust Ridge Landscape! They have done a landscaping around my house and I love it!... They work hard and they are very reliable, which is very important to me. They take care of my yard on the weekly basis. When I was away, I have asked if they could water my landscaping during the hot July days and they agreed to do it, even if it was a sudden request, it was not planned before... I really appreciate the heart they put into what they are doing. Highly recommend this company!read more
