While you can certainly have a low-maintenance landscape, it’s almost impossible to have a no-maintenance landscape. Even the most artfully designed outdoor spaces, built with the highest quality materials, require some level of care to keep them at their best. How much care depends upon the size of your space, your standards, and the type of plants and hardscaping you have on your property.

That level of care does not have to depend upon how much time you have. Instead of doing yard work in your free time, hire your local experts to handle planting, mowing, edging, pruning, weeding and other garden maintenance, fertilization, debris removal, post-storm clean-up, and more. Better View Landscapes is a full-service landscaping company with 25 years of experience in Florence, Massachusetts and throughout the Pioneer Valley, and our landscape maintenance programs are customized to match your needs and preferences all year long.

We’re committed to enriching your life through beautiful outdoor spaces. To that end, we offer a full range of services via a process that’s designed to simplify your life and make your project enjoyable. Our team of landscaping professionals is highly-trained and professional: we show up on time, communicate clearly, and deliver the world-class landscapes you want and deserve.

At Better View Landscapes, we strive for clarity and transparency. All of our contracts are clearly outlined, with no hidden fees. We tailor your service plan to meet the particular needs of your property, so you can rest assured that your landscaping will look its best year-round. Getting started is simple:

    Contact our office using this online form or call the office directly. We will ask for details about your property, the kind of services you require, and your budget requirements. If you fill out our form, you can expect a call from our representatives within one business day.

  • On-Site or Virtual Meeting

    Once we have determined that your project is a good fit, we will set up an on-site visit or virtual meeting, depending on your project. For design projects and more complex landscaping contracts, we will visit your property to gather information. If you require basic maintenance services, we will conduct an easy virtual meeting via Zoom to clarify the details before preparing your proposal.

  • Estimate

    For our maintenance services, we will prepare a proposal within 3 business days of our first meeting and send it to you for review and approval. Most initial design proposals will be ready within one business day of our initial meeting. Following this design concept meeting, we will prepare your agreement and pricing as discussed and send it to you for approval.

  • Your Custom Plan

    Once we have completed contract discussions, you can review and sign your design plan or care plan. We will request your installation deposit before scheduling work, and your design fee must be paid prior to beginning design work. Most initial design renderings will be ready within ten business days after your design proposal has been accepted, with a follow-up meeting(s) upon completion of the initial design plan. For landscape maintenance plans, we will provide you with an invoice in the week following each service visit, and payment will be charged against the card you have on file.

  • Agreement & Work Begins

    Once you have signed your service agreement, maintenance and installation services will be added to the schedule. You will receive regular communication from our team to ensure that any questions and concerns are addressed quickly. Our team will be available for any questions you may have after each maintenance service visit, and a comprehensive walk-through will be conducted with you upon completion of your installation project.

  • Follow-up Care

    For maintenance contracts, you can expect monthly follow-ups to ensure your satisfaction. For installation services, we will reach out to you after the work is complete to provide follow-up care recommendations and service.
