Earth Works believes your yard should be your haven away from the busyness of day-to-day life, a place to relax and enjoy time with your family and friends. We can design and install any type of landscaping you would like. Many quotes include a computerized rendering of your project. Our specialties include patios, brick pavers, ponds, waterfalls, garden areas, walkways, private sitting areas, decks, hot tub enclaves and more. We also offer spring and fall pruning and yard clean ups. Do your beds looked washed out from the winter, we can apply a fresh coat of mulch and get you started on a fresh look for the summer. Don’t have a green thumb? Let us maintain your gardens for you by doing the weeding and planting. You get to enjoy the fruits of our labors. Veggie garden ready to plant? Let us help by rototilling the earth for you.

“I am pleased with the quality work; sodding, seeding and mulching that your crew recently completed. I found your workers to be professional, customer oriented, receptive to questions/helpful with responses, attentive to detail and experienced.  I would consider your company for any future landscape needs and will recommend your services to friends and neighbors.”

Lawn Maintenance

When your lawn looks great you feel more relaxed and can enjoy your time off from work. We can make your lawn look spectacular!

Our services include weekly mowing, trimming, edging, and blowing off of all drives, decks, walks and other surfaces. We also do large area mowing, field and brush cutting and seasonal area mowing. Earth Works prides itself on the professional job we do.

All of our crews are uniformed and come in well marked vehicles.

Having a special occasion and need some extra attention given to the lawn on a specific date? No problem, just let Kathleen know ahead of time and we will take care of all the details for you. Going on vacation? We can mow while you are gone.

The men did a beautiful job of edging and clean-up. We could not have done it better ourselves if we were younger. Thank you so much for your prompt service as always.

Fertilizer/ Weed Control

We offer 4 and 5 step fertilizer programs designed to keep your lawn looking great all year long.

The key to a good fertilizer program is timing; timing is everything! There is usally a very small window of opportunity to apply fertilizer/weed control. The larger companies who “only” apply fertilizer/weed control products can not assure each customer they will get their application at the appropriate time.

Earth Works only takes as many fertilizer/weed control clients as we can assure will receive their treatments at the right time, so call today to get set up for the season.

Our applicators are state licensed and insured.

The weeding looks great!

Retaining Walls

Need a wall to hold back the earth, break up a landscape or add an eye catching feature?

Earth Works can build almost any kind of wall you may need. Timber, boulder, block… call today so we can discuss your needs.

A retaining wall is a structure that holds back soil or rock from a building, structure or area. Retaining walls prevent downslope movement or erosion and provide support for vertical or near-vertical grade changes. Retaining walls are generally made of masonry, stone, brick, concrete, vinyl, steel or timber. Once popular as an inexpensive retaining material, railroad ties have fallen out of favor due to environmental concerns. They also decompose over time.

My wife & I wanted to tell you how pleased we are with the retaining wall that your company replaced for us. The work was done quickly and at a good price.  The design was even better than we anticipated.

Brick Pavers/ Patios

Have an old walkway that is weed infested and just doesn’t look nice anymore?

Consider updating it with a brick paver or flagstone walkway.

We install all types of patios, walkways, walls and entertainment areas with a variety of paver and stone types and styles.

The concept of interlocking concrete pavers dates back to the roads of the Roman Empire. They were constructed with tightly fitted paving units set on a compacted aggregate base. The modern version, concrete pavers, is manufactured in a wide array of colors, shapes and textures all with the look of authentic stone. Pavers interlock together to form a patterned surface which can be put into service immediately. A big benefit of pavers is that they can be removed and re-installed, which reduces future service interruptions.

The crew did a tremendous job; they were professional and gentlemen.  I am thrilled!

Spring & Fall Cleanups

Spring Clean Up: Remove all winter trash and debris from yard and beds, trim and reshape bushes, rake yard, clean out window wells and other places leaves and debris are trapped. Cut back any perennials that have been left. Blow off decks, walks and drives. General spruce up to start the season off right!  Services vary by client request.

Fall Clean Up: Cut back perennials for winter, final bed clean up, lawn cleanup and leaf removal, final mow, edging, trimming of bushes as needed, placement of rose cones, cover bushes with burlap as needed, stake driveway for snow plowing if requested. Services vary by client request.

Leaf Clean up: YES! We clean up leaves. We can schedule your clean up so that the leaves are at the curb a few days ahead of time for the city pickup or we can haul them away. We also haul away leaves you have already cleaned up. Services vary by client request.

The men did a super job today! The yard looks so good.

Debbie S.

Bush Trimming & Pruning

Proper pruning enhances the beauty of almost any landscape tree and shrub, while improper pruning can ruin or greatly reduce its landscape potential. In most cases, it is better not to prune than to do it incorrectly. In nature, plants go years with little or no pruning, but man can ruin what nature has created. By using improper pruning methods healthy plants are often weakened or deformed.

Pruning, like any other skill, requires knowing what you are doing to achieve success. The old idea that anyone with a chain saw or a pruning saw can be a landscape pruner is far from the truth. More trees are killed or ruined each year from improper pruning than by pests. Remember that pruning is the removal or reduction of certain plant parts that are not required, that are no longer effective, or that are of no use to the plant. It is done to supply additional energy for the development of flowers, fruits, and limbs that remain on the plant. Pruning, which has several definitions, essentially involves removing plant parts to improve the health, landscape effect, or value of the plant. Once the objectives are determined and a few basic principles understood, pruning primarily is a matter of common sense.

Our MSU trained and certified nurserymen take great pride in maintaining your shrubberies and ornamental trees.

I made a mistake and tried to save a few bucks by going with the cheap guys. I have come to completely regret that decision and I wish I would have gone with Earth Works from the start.  Your company was by far the most professional and helpful.
