    I would love to come down there some time and see your operation since I am less than 3 hours away. Are all of your customers in Raleigh? And, do you have an in-house landscape designer or to you sub that out?

    for the "tech" guys...check out our new website. I havent moved it to our main domain name yet, but have it on a temporary one. There is a little bit more information on there that may answer a few questions. I didnt expect to have so many people interested in our operation. Please ask away, and I will do whatever I can to answer your questions. Always excited to help others out. After all, we're all just squirrels tryin to get a nut, right?

    Wanna earn / keep customers? Spend a little $ and throw a Christmas party! Always works for us. We had a great time last Friday night. Sorry the pictures are kinda crummy...

    All of our Maintenance contracts are in the Raleigh/Triangle area. Our Install department travels around the Southeast and our Fence division will go anywhere there is a big project like an airport or prison.

    how did you learn to design like that? I try but my jobs are sub-par compared to yours. Those fan-palms and gold mops look amazing in that pool picture, maybe one of the best uses for palms i have seen in a while.

    The Palms were more of a luck thing. They are up in VA on Lake Gaston...We had some Jelly Palms there too, but they didn't make it. In regards to the design, we have a designer in the office who puts these things together for us. We are lucky to live in an area where people value their landscapes because they can spend 8-10 months of the year enjoying it. We go a little heavier on the plant material and it tends to crowd but luckily our clients "update" their properties every 5-6 years or so. I will try and get some more residential pictures up soon!

    Did you use a AutoCAD program to create that design?

    We use Bricscad and AutoCAD for our designs. AutoCAD seems to work better and is preferred.
