As any member of a homeowner association knows, an attractive landscape can add value to your property. It adds beauty to a neighborhood and invites future residents to picture themselves relaxing in a pleasant common area. We can help build a beautiful outdoor space for your residents to enjoy or maintain the grounds to keep plants, lawns and soil healthy and attractive while maintaining a sustainable environment.
Our certified irrigation specialists can work with you to develop the most efficient watering system to minimize water waste and maximize cost efficiency. We have the experience to retrofit your existing irrigation systems, or install new ones. We always recommend installing a rain sensor to minimize water waste here in Oregon – it’s easy and low cost. If you don’t want to install an entirely new irrigation system we can easily retrofit an existing one by upgrading nozzles and controllers. An inefficient water system can be expensive, let us help you save money on your landscaping operating costs.
Water Features and Lighting
We’ve worked with many HOA communities over the years and have successfully designed and implemented cost saving landscaping plans. This includes all aspects of design, installation, and repair of new and existing water features and landscape lighting. We recommend using LED lighting which is the most efficient and long lasting option on the market vs the halogen lights commonly used in older systems.
Plant Health Care
We use only natural materials, mycorrhizal products and compost tea to balance soil ph and to ensure proper soil nutrition and water absorption. Our plant experts can suggest the best varieties that will thrive on your property and showcase the natural beauty of the landscape. We are your consultant and advisor on all areas relating to plant, turf, and tree health and fertility. This includes pest and disease issues and treatments.
Regular and Seasonal Maintenance
For most of our accounts we provide weekly or biweekly service. The regular crew will handle all the lawn care, minor pruning and general property appearance. Specialized crews will come in to handle any major pruning, PHC and spray service and irrigation needs.
Our seasonal maintenance typically includes leaf cleanup, annual flower replacement, mulching and other tasks as needed. We schedule leaf cleanup according to the timing of leaf fall in the season. Annual flowers are usually changed out in the Spring and Fall and mulching and barkdusting are done in the Spring and late Fall after leaves have been removed.
Our annual and multi year contracts allow us to work with HOA boards to provide consistency of service for your landscape needs. Your account manager will work with you to set up communication protocols, communicate homeowner requests, prioritize repairs, and any treatments needed or enhancements wanted. We are also available to attend HOA board meeting as needed.
Keeping Our Community Beautiful!

DeSantis is in our neighborhood two days a week. They are like a force that sweeps through the common areas and front yards of our HOA. They work efficiently to complete in two days what other landscape companies took 3-4 days to do! Our aging landscape requires an expertise to keep our neighborhood looking sharp. Thank you DeSantis for your dedication to our neighborhood!
