About Us

The Difference Landscapes knows that you want to enjoy your lawn… not tend to it. That’s why we make it easy for you with dependable, reliable and dedicated service. The biggest investment you’ll most likely make in your lifetime is your home. Most real estate professionals will tell you that it’s the “curb-appeal” that helps to make or break the value of your home. And “curb-appeal” means landscaping. Not only do we help individual homeowners improve their curb appeal but we also service commercial properties and homeowners associations.

We have multiple crews that are devoted to their area of expertise: mowing, landscape construction, irrigation, landscape lighting, and snow removal. The work week is typically Monday through Thursday which leaves a day open for rescheduling due to uncooperative weather or even holidays.

Customer Reviews

Hired Make a Difference Landscaping to line the driveway and parking area with 3/4 stone as well as around the house. The two individuals showed up first thing in the morning and worked diligently throughout the day in spite of the 90+ degree temperature. The job was completed in one day and the results were excellent. The stone work compliments the rest of the landscaping in our yard. Very satisfied.

I have used Make a Difference Landscaping for the past couple of years for yard clean-up, the building of granite steps, and lawn maintenance. I have been more than satisfied with the work that has been done in the past. I am over the moon with the spring yard clean-up this year that was done by Ravyn and Drew. They transformed the yard with their diligence and care. Thank you for your professionalism.

They provided a full service maintenance program for my lawn that was very effective. My lawn looks great. They communicated well about appointments and the operator was very helpful in explaining what was being applied. They came on time, and were clean and efficient.
