Contractor Spotlight

Sterling Landscape Company
One of my most trusted landscape contractors over the years has been Sterling Landscape Company. They have been installing my projects for 10 years now, but have been around since 1972 when John and Lynne Sterling set up shop.  Sterling has done an exceptional job for my clients over the years and some of the things that set them apart in my mind are their top notch construction quality and customer service. 

Sterling just doesn’t install landscapes; they are a full service Green Industry Company that can take care of my clients’ landscape needs. Sterling has 4 main divisions, the landscape division, the maintenance division, the personal gardener division and Harrington Farms (tree field division).

The Landscape division is headed up by three project managers (Lavon Webb, Jody Hurst and Thad Heidemann) and can install pretty much anything I can think up. I like that they line item their construction bids to my clients, so that it is easy to read and also easy to phase in. They can handle all aspects of the landscape installation, from hardscape items (patios, shade structures, outdoor kitchens, walls…), to irrigation and softscape installations (the plants and bark).  I like that they install the projects on budget and it’s done right!!  The entire installation team is a pleasure to deal with and they always listen to me and my clients needs.  If you need a patio, pond, outdoor kitchen or just a tree planted, think about calling Sterling.

Sterling Lawn and Grounds Maintenance division can deal with all the landscape maintenance needs for my residential and commercial clients.  Dan King oversees the division to make sure it runs smoothly throughout the year. They can handle simple lawn maintenance like mowing and trimming, but also deal with more specialized items like, chemical applications for trees and shrubs, irrigation service and repair.  The other neat thing that they can do for you is to design and install a Christmas light display that will be the envy of your neighborhood – and you can stay inside and watch as Sterling’s crews put up the lights as you sip your hot coco!

The Personal Gardner division at Sterling is really kind of special. They deal with the small details that will make a big impact at any special event or just to make your yard look like its ready to be published in a magazine. Suzy Profitt heads up the personal gardener side and they can make your yard pop with annual color beds, container planting, rose /shrub care and add those little details so your yard is ready to enjoy without you doing any of the work.

Harrington Farms (Sterling’s tree field), has 40 acres of locally gown trees that are adapted to our local soils and environment.   John Sterling is the manager at the tree field and they are set up to serve landscape contractors, builders and developers.
