Quality by Design Landscaping 2017

There are many landscape companies who will mow your lawn, clean up with a leaf blower, and leave. Quality by Design Landscaping calls this process a “mow, blow, and go,” and it’s exactly what the Quality by Design Landscaping team definitely doesn’t do. The commitment to quality is appreciated by the firm’s many clients, including Altamonte-Wekiva Springs Life owner Sheila Kramer.

“Quality by Design Landscaping has transformed our lawn into a beautifully designed garden,” says Sheila. “Even better, they do it all: mow, trim, fertilize, pest control, and landscape design and installation. Our lawn makes us smile every time we come home.”

Owner Jeff Rouse’s residential and commercial clients rely on his 30 years of experience in plant, tree, and lawn care. A Florida native who has been working in the lawn-care field since 1990, Jeff knows quite a bit about the area’s natural environment, how to maximize its beauty, and how to maintain its outdoor spaces.

Jeff is directly involved in what goes on with each property under his care. He travels to every job after uniformed crews have visited to be sure quality standards are being met. He works hard to foster good communication so clients feel comfortable giving him feedback, and Jeff stands by his work.

Fully licensed and insured, Quality by Design Landscaping is an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau, and is the winner of the 2015 Seminole County Regional Chamber of Commerce New Business of the Year award.

Quality by Design Landscaping offers a full-service maintenance program with weekly visits year-round, which includes complete lawn maintenance, ornamental tree trimming, and irrigation system inspections and adjustments. The company also provides full landscape design-and-installation services, handles new construction, and can work off engineered blueprints. If a renovation is what you need, Jeff can design it for you, as seen in the before-and-after pictures above.

The work that the company provides is customized and is as comprehensive as needed by each customer at any given time. There is no one-size-fits-all service. They also work with Realtors and property managers to add curb appeal. At any time, clients can add new projects such as the installation of a pergola, laying new mulch, an annual flower program, or the addition of lighting features.

Even with such a wide range of services to fit every budget, it is attention to detail that sets Quality by Design Landscaping apart from other local landscape design firms. Not many other companies can say they visit their clients’ properties every single week on a year-round basis.

After all, the landscaping is the first thing you see.
