The appearance of your garden can have a profound effect on the appearance of your entire home. Weeds, debris, and overgrowth diminish your curb appeal, and let’s face it: it’s not much fun to come home to a messy outdoor space. Those weeds are a reminder of a chore you should be doing but would rather not do, and it’ll hang over your head until you take the time to get it done—or until you hire someone to do it.

That’s where we come in. At Better View Landscapes, we offer professional garden maintenance services to save you time and trouble. We have all the high-quality equipment and well-trained crew members required to keep your garden at its best throughout the year. Each maintenance program is customized for you, so it may include weeding, bed edging, fertilization, staking, seasonal planting, shrub pruning, deadheading, debris removal, ground cover control, mulching, seasonal clean-up, and more.

With more than 25 years of experience in Northampton, Massachusetts and throughout the Pioneer Valley, Better View is a full-service landscaping company with a range of services to meet all your outdoor living needs, from design and installation to maintenance, gutter cleaning, and snow services. Contact us to learn more about what we do, and we’ll be happy to help you get started on your project.

A Simple Process to Get Your Project Started—and Finished

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:

  • Request a Quote

    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.
