Cultivating Excellence

Lupfer Landscaping is a full-service landscaping company that provides high end maintenance and a straightforward design/build philosophy. We believe in having one landscape designer handle the job from its conception on paper, to the realization on your property and the maintenance following the installation. The reason; by doing this you are able to communicate and work with a single individual, share your thoughts and ideas, and in collaboration, bring them to life. 

Lupfer Landscaping is made up of a group of highly skilled landscaping professionals who pay attention to small details. With over 25+ years of experience our staff keeps your property looking and functioning beautifully.
