Fine Gardening

EARTHeim offers fine gardening landscape maintenance services on-call and through scheduled maintenance plans. We also have special packages for homeowners who have their property on the market and would like to create curb appeal for a faster sale.

We take pride in having skills and knowledge in proper gardening, pruning, and mulching techniques that will help keep your garden healthy and looking nice. I like to become familiar with your landscape and learn about your wishes before we begin our work by a simple phone conversation.

Our pricing is very reasonable for the professional and quality work we adhere to.
