Beautiful trees live in all types landscapes: the very plush to the uninspired. They bud out, produce leaves with points, angles, curves, jags, roundness – all shapes and sizes and shades. Each year tree owners take great pleasure in watching the seasons change, in seeing how their trees have grown. Then, leaves start to fall. We’ll do the raking. Our crew makes short work of a big raking job and we will clear out the awkward areas where leaves tend to drift and pile up not just rake those about to blow into the neighbor’s yard. We’ll even haul them away for you. Our raking service is just one of the specialty services we provide. You don’t need an excuse to not rake your yard yourself. You need Designer Landscapes, Inc.
