Summer is Short – Don’t Wait to Update Your Outdoor Space!


Summer is the perfect time to focus on your outdoor space – the sun is shining and the stars are twinkling at night.  We hate telling our clients who wait to schedule their landscaping projects that we are booked up through the end of the year.  Our team of landscaping professionals want to help make your outdoor space a place where you can relax and have fun while the sun is out!

Speaking of our team, let us introduce one of our newest members – Landscape Designer Sara Anderson.  Sara has a background in the fine arts, where she focused on sculpture and pottery.  Switching gears to earn her degree in landscape design and horticulture from City College in San Francisco, Sara started her own landscaping business in Nevada, which she ran for over 20 years.  One year she planted 10,000 trees as part of a restoration effort!  After moving to Maine to care for her aging parents, Sara linked up with Greencare and loves working with a team of knowledgeable professionals who are customer-oriented and love what they do every day.

Sara’s fine arts training gives her a discerning eye for color, texture, and dimension when planning landscape designs, and she loves creating beautiful spaces for clients.  “For me, the most gratifying part of the job is to create a landscape the client will love and I know they will take care of in the future,” she shares.

One way Sara recommends adding depth and dimension to a landscape is by adding a retaining wall.  “Some are strictly for looks, but retaining walls are a must if you have slopes in your landscape.  They help terrace and retain the soil as well as keep water where it should be.”  There are different aesthetic options for adding a retaining wall to your space, from stone to concrete blocks, to seat walls for expanded space for your guests. With Sara’s discerning eye and Greencare’s hardscaping crew, we can help find an option that works for your space!

So, don’t wait to get the outdoor space of your dreams!  Whether it’s a retaining wall or a patio or the right combination of perennials, give us a call today and we will transform your yard while summer is still in full swing!
