What sets you apart from other landscaping businesses?We believe experience, customer service, quality, and integrity are essential qualities to look for when selecting a landscape company. These qualities set us apart from the competition. C&T Landscape Maintenance and Installation has been in business since 1992, making us one of the most qualified companies to get the job done right.
What should a customer look for in a good landscaper? Someone who listens and understands the customer's needs, wants, and objectives. It's also very important to be able to distinguish between what a customer wants and what they really need, in order to keep the job cost effective. Sometimes we can offer solutions to achieve the same goal for less money, but at a greater value. You also want a landscaper who has the experience and keen eye for detail and provides ideas that the homeowner wouldn't otherwise be able to visualize.
What should a customer expect from an estimate? We will come out to see your land, hear your wants, needs, and ideas, and take measurements. We will discuss different options available to you, and if you're working with a budget, we'll do the best we can to work with your financial constraints. It's best to ask as many questions as possible in the beginning to be sure that your vision becomes the same as ours, and all your expectations are fulfilled. It's also important to read over the contract before you sign it to be sure that everything you want is included. While changes can be made to the contract later, it may end up costing you more money or extending the date of completion.
Does your company specialize in any kind of landscaping "style?" One of our customers said that we have sort of an "evergreens and curves" style. We do love evergreens, because when you have four seasons like we do in the Northwest, you want something that will retain its color during every season. We also specialize in colorful perennials, maples, and annuals for color spots. Using different varieties of plants and trees ensures that you'll have a lush and full garden all year round with many different colors and textures.
What size company should I look for? The size of the company doesn't matter as much as the services they offer and the prices they ask. In general, the larger companies get enough business that they may not need to keep their prices competitive, and the smallest companies often don't use contracts, and usually don't own their own equipment. They may not be able to handle a larger project, or if they can, they may pass equipment rental costs on to the consumer.
Why should I hire a professional landscaper? Many people can install or maintain their own lawn and garden, but don't have the time, or don't have the knowledge to ensure that everything is installed and maintained correctly. There are so many factors to remember when designing and planting. It's important to consider soil quality, drainage, color coordination, flow, design, seasonal changes, disease prevention, proper irrigation coverage, and many more things that could extend or shorten the life of your greenery.
As far as maintenance goes, most people can mow, edge, and weed their lawns and gardens adequately, but it's very time-consuming, and many jobs are time-sensitive. If you don't weed regularly, they can overgrow everything else. If you don't rake your leaves on time, your lawn can start to rot and doe. If you don't mow your lawn weekly, it can start to overgrow itself, causing the roots to die. Pruning is another important task that is often overlooked or done improperly. Different plants and trees should be pruned at different times of the year. Some plants should be pruned almost down to the ground, while some require only light shearing.
C&T Landscape offers very affordable maintenance plans to ensure that your lawn and garden look magnificent all year-round.
We knew we wanted to renovate the back yard...the only problem was that we didn't have any clue what we were doing. Our back yard was essentially a blank canvas of dirt and weeds. We met Charles while he was doing an installation for a friend of ours and we really liked his work. He has this certain style of "Curves and Evergreens" so we had him come and do a bid at our place. He installed a boulder retaining wall, new lawn, beautiful slate patio, stone fire pit, a column bubbler water feature, and all the plants. The entire yard was finished and it looked amazing. We sit out all the time and enjoy our fabulous yard. We are always happy to refer C&T Landscape and have been very pleased with the work they do.

C&T Landscape was very professional. They got us the bid quickly, started the job when they said they would, and finished right on time. They work hard and efficiently, we were simply impressed. They also offered some other suggestions to improve our landscape and today they continue to maintain the property and keep everything neat and tidy!

I hired C&T Landscape to maintain my property after they finished a complete renovation at my Brother's home in Beaverton. His yard, by the way, looked fantastic (they built a beautiful retaining wall, stunning patio, lighting, plants and synthetic lawn). I previously employed the same company for years...and boy am I glad I switched! My yard has never looked better and I am so happy with the service.
-S.S, Lake Oswego
C&T Landscape has been really easy to work with. They went the extra mile, and Charles spent a lot of time with me and my projects...meaning he took the time to answer all my questions and walk me through the process because I'm not the most visual person. In the end, I am so happy with the result and will definitely refer in the future! Thank you for the prompt service.

Most people do not take into account the amount of time they spend in their backyard. You might enjoy going outside to barbecue with friends, relax after a long day of work or spend time with your family. Imagine how having a beautiful and functional backyard could enhance that time you spend at your home. At C&T Landscape Maintenance & Installation, we understand the importance of designing and maintaining a landscape around your home that adds to the appeal of your home rather than detracts from it.
