Start with a soil test! You wouldn't let your dentist start drilling your teeth without an xray so why let your lawn service apply chemicals and fertilizers thay may not be needed or even do more harm? We start every project with a complete site evaluation, soil sampling and lab analysis. Our lab results will provide you with an accurate and complete soil evaluation that will help us determine the cause of problems. Then we can deal with causes instead of constantly fighting symptoms that will just reemerge. Program Special: Site Evaluation • Soil Sample Collection • Mailing and Lab Fees • Complete 17 Point Lab Analysis • Written Detailed Explanation of Analysis All for $75.00

Organic by Design
We are still an organic based company, the name just no longer adequately expressed the full range of services we now offer. We have been designing landscapes for 35 years and specialize in permaculture and low maintenance landscapes. However, what we are the best at is designing the landscape you want. If you desire a formal landscape with topiaries and clipped hedges that is what we will do, with the correct varieties of plants for your climate and location.
The design process starts with consultations to establish how you would like to use your property. Pictures and measurement are collected to establish the pallet we are working on. Remember the old fashioned top down landscape plan that required a lot of creativity to visualize what the design would actually look like? We still do those to calculate proper plant placement and accurate garden feature design, but we will draw your landscape in 3D and we can actually walk through it, look at it from windows in your house, and get the most accurate rendition possible so you know what you are getting.
Our landscape installation team is trained in best practices and organic plant establishment. Holes are properly dug, plants are carefully inspected and placed, and nutrient sprays containing beneficial soil microbes are applied to all root balls or holes. Then the ground is lightly covered with compost and topped off with mulch to regulate soil temperature and moisture.
If you want to maintain your own landscape we will provide you with a yearly schedule for doing so. As a full service landscape company we can also provide weekly lawn and landscape care as well as all fertilization and pest control services.
Our goal is to take all the worry and stress out of your landscape so your time is spent enjoying it and doing the tasks you actually enjoy. Southern Living Outdoors can help you live beyond the walls instead of creating a weekend job.
