About Us:

Down to earth is not your typical landscaping company. We custom design, install and maintain our own landscaping projects and have the advantage of owning a beautiful nursery to support our projects. We care about every aspect of our projects, and our approach gives us the tools to control the delivery of excellence across the board.

Our culture comes first. We are fun, competitive, and passionate about our projects and our clients. Your fit within that culture is as important to us as the skills that you bring. We like quirky plant nerds, book-loving laborers, machine operators with a library of jokes, and supervisors that tell the crew to go home at the end of the day because everyone is having too much fun!
