Our Approach

Our Approach

Here at Straight Paths Landscape & Design we like to work by our motto verses, Proverbs 3:5-6. These verses say,

    Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.


Our Story

Our Story

As a career accountant, it would seem unlikely that I would find my passion and calling in the landscape business. I started installing irrigation systems in 1987 and after retiring in 2010, and after much urging from family and friends, and prayerful consideration, Straight Paths Landscape & Design, LLC was started in July 2006. We are a Christian company and aim to follow Christian principles.

The first three years saw us designing and installing beautiful landscape projects. However, once the projects were completed our clients were struggling to find suitable and capable companies to maintain their beautiful new lawns. Clients were coming to us for advice on finding lawn maintenance companies. So, in 2009 we started a separate division to provide quality lawn maintenance.

Today we have 15 full-time employees employed year-round that take pride in our landscape design and lawn maintenance teams.

There is no project too big or too small.  Our Projects range from $100.00 up to $200K.  We give all clients the same great service and attention and detail.
