We source supplies from many Iowa landscape supply companies to provide unique Iowa outdoor products for your landscape. All of our pavers are professionally installed on top of paver base and topped with polymeric sand which prevents weeds from growing between the pavers. Let us create the perfect space for that new patio furniture, barbeque or fire pit.

Attract pollinators to your yard by planting a variety of annuals and perennials in your garden. Our landscape designers source local Iowa grown annuals for your landscape and choose multiple types and colors of perennials to ensure your landscape has flowers in bloom all season long. Common perennials include sedum, New England asters, day lilies, coneflower, black eye Susan, coral bells, iris, sage and phlox. Common annuals include sunpatiens, marigolds, vinca, petunia, coleus, pentas, and flowering purslane.
Spruce up the entrance of your home or your back deck with flower containers and pots designed and installed by our horticulture team. We source annuals from Iowa grown greenhouses and can change out colors and plants for each season. We install and design planters and pots for Christmas season, winter, spring, summer, and fall.
Mulch is a common groundcover for Iowa landscapes. Mulch prevents weeds and helps the soil retain moisture. Mulching should be done annually as mulch breaks down over time. Mulching also adds a new pop of color to your landscape each spring. Mulch comes in a variety of colors including natural brown, gold, red, and black. When possible, we always recommend western red cedar mulch as the cedar repels certain insects such as termites, is the slowest to decompose, and has a great aroma.
River rock is a great option for low maintenance landscapes. We place polypropylene needle punched 20 year landscape fabric under all of our river rock installations. This prevents weeds from growing while still allowing water to filter through the fabric. We purchase Iowa river rock from local quarries in the Des Moines area. River rock is availe in multiple sizes from pea gravel to 2 inch stone. River rock pairs great with landscape elements such as boulders and outcropping slabs.
Other landscape groundcover options we install include crushed granite, black obsidian, gray slate, traprock, Mexican beach pebbles, and buckskin. We are able to source a variety of stone from across the country to match specific colors and textures for your landscape.
As the seasons in Iowa change, so do the needs and maintenance requirements of your Iowa landscape. Our team of professional landscapers can handle all aspects of your landscape including
