Whether it’s lawn mowing and trimming, tree care, shrub pruning, landscape bed maintenance, monitoring your irrigation system, or designing and installing seasonal color displays, we handle everything so you don’t have to. We can also work with trusted vendors to arrange and oversee routine outdoor tasks such as concrete work, pest control, window cleaning, painting and other home maintenance and construction projects. Our maintenance program is completely customized to your needs and your property. Not only does the customization improve the level of service we can provide, it also allows us to accomodate a wide variety of budgets.

Hardscapes

The look of distinction that permanent outdoor structure designed by Distinctive Landscape Management (such as retaining walls, patios, pavers and walkways) bring to a landscape is undeniable. Hardscapes define a landscape by creating the skeleton that holds your outdoor living space together. When designed with vision and architectural skill, hardscapes create functionality while expanding the architecture of your home into the outdoors. A vast array of hardscape materials can add color, texture and dimension to your overall landscape design. Hardscapes range from natural stone retaining walls and seat walls, flagstone paths, paver or flagstone walkways and patios, pergolas, gazebos, and outdoor firepits, to name a few.

Irrigation

Installing an irrigation system for your lawn as well as your landscape plantings is the best way to protect your investment in your landscape. Automatic watering systems are not only a convenient way to keep your grass and plants healthy, they are also more effective than hand-watering and they are the most environmentally responsible way to water.
Distinctive Landscape completely services your lawn sprinkler system and garden watering system from activations and winerizations to maintenance. We can also address coverage issues. For instance, your lawn sprinkler heads are not covering a part of your lawn. Or, some heads are over-spraying into your landscape beds causing plant stress. Distinctive Irrigation specialists are happy to adjust your system for optimal performance.
Although costly upfront, good irrigation systems will pay for themselves in water savings over the course of just a few years.

Water Features

When designed with careful consideration by a Distinctive Landscape Management professional, water features take your outdoor space to the next level. The combination of water’s sound, movement and reflective qualities are what bring out the “oohs” and “ahhs” from all who visit your home. Ornamental ponds can bring a wide variety of fish, foliage and flowers into your garden, while the sounds of moving water from a fountain can create a space for quiet introspection and relaxation. Bubbling fountains, a tranquil pond, a babbling brook, or a glass-like fall of water are examples of what Distinctive Landscape Management. can create at your property. The design possibilities for water features are truly infinite. Our designers know how to create a water feature that fits-in to your landscape organically. After installation, our water features don’t look created, they have a natural context and appear to have been there forever.
