What Makes Us Different?

Why Poynter Landscape
John Schultz, Bob Wilhelm, Richard Poynter

What makes Poynter Landscape Architecture and Construction different from our competitors?

First, is our dedication to customer service.  From the start you will be speaking with landscape architects with loads of experience in our region. Their experience with handling large, complex projects that require permitting and many specialized skill sets will make it obvious that we’ve been in business more than 20 years.  The team approach used by the design staff will ensure you won’t have to wait forever to get through the design process and we are well equipped to provide you with a design that compliments your home, your style and your budget.

Second is our talented staff of Landscape Architects, Landscape Designers, and Craftsman Builders. Together we are group of people that are passionate about residential Landscape Architecture and follow a core set of principles. We seek out team members that are creative, transparent, and innovative problems solvers, with a passion for efficiency, craftsmanship, and attention to detail.

Third is our commitment to quality.  It starts with hand selected material acquired by our dedicated purchaser who will only accept the best 10% quality plants and materials for your project. Our uniformed crews are well trained and many have their own areas of specialty resulting in the bar being raised on our construction methods and techniques.  Our satisfaction guarantee and extended warranty will ensure you are satisfied over the long haul.

Last but not least is our obsession with efficiency.  From the onset of your project we will abide by construction timelines and will provide clear expectations around possible delays, and will stay on the job until it is complete.  On larger projects we also start and end our work day on your site rather than at our office.

All of this results in a great value for any outdoor construction project big or small. We guarantee you will quickly see why we have such a fun team culture that has led to award winning project after project.   Ask us for a list of properties and references so you can see for yourself!  We WILL exceed your expectations!

The Benefits of Professional Landscaping

Not counting the potential 100% return on investment in professional landscaping dollars, there are additional non-monetary gains a quality, professionally designed, installed and maintained landscape investment provide.

Research has shown that well maintained landscapes provide an environmental benefit by releasing oxygen into the atmosphere, providing shade and reducing erosion. Professional landscaping also provides numerous lifestyle benefits, both tangible and intangible. Research has shown improved productivity, increased sense of well-being, and greater speed of recovery from illness when individuals are exposed to green spaces.

Poynter Landscape Architecture is ready to meet your needs and have you happy & thrilled with everything we perform for you.
