Here is our first clay bottomed 1/2 acre pond. As you may have guessed, its in my own back yard. We've determined that some 3,000 yards of soil were displaced over approximately 3-4 hard days. The excavation was handled solely by us, with the trucking being outsourced. The pond ranges from shallow areas of approximately 2-3' in depth to 20' at it's deepest. Fish habitat has been added and will continue to be an important factor going into the future. We are catching run off from approximately 10 acres if and weather it ever rains again. Gutters are also drained into the pond to maximize our water conservation. I still intend to initially fill the pond with a well and have it as a back up. I've always wanted one and I felt it only benefited our customers for me to test the waters per say on my time as opposed to theirs. All in all, I'm pleasantly surprised with the ease of which the pond came together. I feel this is due in part since the designer was at the control's of an excavator. Landmark Landscapes has always prided itself on the fact that the owners are also the designers and the installers. It just doesn't get much more efficient than that. If nothing else, it shows the capabilities of a small, highly mechanized and determined company. Stay tuned, I will periodically update our fans on this continued endeavor.
Landmark Landscapes is offering GREAT prices on 6′ select Blue spruce. Honestly, these are beautiful trees, great shape, perfect blue shade, just a gorgeous specimen spruce. We bought a whole truck load to get a great price, so you the customer can benefit. If you’re one of many, that are sickened by all the Scotch Pine death and want a good economical replacement, without sacrificing all the size, then hear is you tree. Most of the time you would find this tree going for $250-300 depending on where you shop. We are letting these go for $150/tree (customer pick up) while supplies last!!! Of Course, we offer delivery and installation if you require. Call and book your quantities today, I’m sure they will go quick.

Thank you for all the hard work you have done on my farm. Things look Terrific. I am so pleased!
Mark and his team were willing to tackle a big clean-up project by a 7 acre pond in town. There were MANY dead trees and volunteer trees that needed to be cleaned out. It was a rather remote location, but they found a way to clean everything out with minimal damage to the turf. Polite, came when they promised and finished under the bid price! Will definitely use them whenever I have a landscaping project for the neighborhood association or my acreage. Thank you Mark!
When I decided I needed my old railroad tie retaining wall re-did, I was set on the regular retaining wall blocks. However, when Landmark Landscapes came to give me an estimate, Mark suggested using boulders as an option. I am so glad I went with Mark’s suggestions! It looks so natural and beautiful! My friends were awed by the transformations. Thanks Mark and crew for a job well done.
A couple of our neighbors used Landmark Landscapes and highly recommended them! The first project was our backyard and around our pool. It turned out gorgeous! We are getting raving reviews from golfers, neighbors, and family/friends. Now they are doing a couple projects in the front yard. We let Mark design and create \”the look\” and we \”go with it\”! When the team arrives, they work hard, are VERY polite and professional. Best of all, when they\’re in the neighborhood, they\’ll randomly stop by to spray for weeds and check on plant moisture, etc. Highly recommend this team!!

It was a wonderful experience working with Mark and his team, from the design phase to the completion of the project. They are truly professionals in what they do and, for us, they\’ve transformed a \”generic\” landscape into something special. Mark is an expert in designing and selecting the best trees and plant material, and creating beautifully integrated environments that are a pleasure to look at, and a joy to be in the middle of. The quality of work that Mark and his team delivers is simply outstanding. Thank you very much again!

I can’t say enough about Mark and his team at Landmark Landscapes. We had a new construction home and Mark not only drew a magnificent design, but answered all my questions along the way and helped find ideas for our budget. I was also very impressed with how efficiently Kasey and his team made the design come to life. We have received several comments from neighbors and friends and will definitely utilize their services again.

Mark and the team did a great job on our backyard. We basically gave them a blank slate and a laundry list of problems. Mark came back with a plan that addressed every one of the issues, in innovative ways we would never have thought of on our own. In the end, Mark and the team gave us a remarkable backyard that we love to spend time in and we can’t recommend strongly enough going with Landmark Landscapes for all your projects.
We are truly raving fans of these guys and they’ve earned our return business. When it comes time for us to landscape our front yard, the only landscaping company we will work with is Landmark Landscapes—Thanks again.
