There’s a lot to love about winter in Northampton, Massachusetts, but it comes with some challenges, too. The snow that covers the sidewalks and roads can pose a danger to pedestrians and drivers alike, and at home, that layer of snow in your driveway adds another chore to your list. Heavy snow on your roof can damage your home, while icy driveways and walks put your family and visitors at risk of a fall, ouch. 

Before you roll up your sleeves, call us. At Better View Landscapes, our complete line of landscaping services includes residential and commercial snow plowing, roof ice and snow removal & plowing, salting and de-icing, snow blowing, and more. We put our dedicated team and top-of-the-line equipment to work all season long to ensure your driveway and sidewalks are clear, safe, and usable. 

With years of experience in the Pioneer Valley, we have systems in place for clear communication, prompt scheduling and project completion, and high-quality work on projects of all sizes. Our personalized approach to every property ensures you get the snow removal services you need when you need them. Contact us to learn more about snow removal & plowing in Northampton and our full range of year-round landscaping services.

We offer this amazing full-care service at a low, fixed price!

Prices start at $795 for the whole season if booked before October 15th. 

The average snowfall around here is more than 40 inches a year. Instead of braving the bitter cold to shovel a driveway that you swear grew longer since the summertime, why not go Unlimited?

There’s nothing like the peace of mind of knowing you’ll always get snow service for snowfalls over 2” without having to call a snowplow company each time. Better View Landscapes can respond at the drop of a hat to care for your property during the rough weather of winter.

The fantastic benefits you get with our Unlimited Snow Plow/Blower service:

  • UNLIMITED visits per season*
  • Storm email text and Voicemail from us to let you know what the plan is before each storm.

  • Pre-storm email so you’re always prepared
  • New! Text message storm notifications are now available

Clients Appreciate Our All-Inclusive Approach and In-House Expertise

Our landscaping services are second to none in New England, but don’t take our word for it! Take a look at our reviews to see what our loyal customers have to say.

When we bought our home, the back acre had been cleared years ago but not maintained, so we had a thick patch of thorny growth and grapevine that made it impassible to the nearby forest. Initially we just wanted it all cleared, but Tory had some great ideas to make it into something far more beautiful. Now we have a meandering path through wildflower meadow, a fire pit, a fruit orchard, and a playing field that has completely changed our yard. Would highly recommend Better View for your design needs!

I’ve been working with Better View Landscapes for several years now.  They have a great system of communication by email. The work is done quickly and with attention to detail.  My lawn looks healthy and tidy.  I keep bees there, and Better View Landscapes uses only products that are not harmful to them.  I also count on Better View for snowplowing in the winter.  They’ve always gotten the job done well.  Highly recommended.

For larger storms, we may send out additional communication to ensure you know what is going on. We also have a dedicated snow line for our customers to use during snow events.
  • Readiness: Like any good athlete, we train! Prior to the season starting, our staff visits all of our sites to get familiar with the layout, and mentally plow the snow so they are ready when the white stuff flies. Our equipment is well maintained and serviced before the season starts and continually maintained during the entire season.
  • Responsiveness: When the snow, ice, sleet, freezing rain or even a blizzard does come, our staff is ready to get out and take care of your property.

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:

    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.

    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.

    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.
