Textures & Finishes
Any single texture or color can be used to create a unique surface and can be applied to an entire patio, walkway, as a decorative border, or with any combination of concrete colors and finishes.
Broom Finish is the standard and the most common finish used, providing a slight texture to the top surface of the concrete. It gives a clean look on its own, or you can enhance the look by adding color to it.
Salt finish is the process of casting and embedding rock salt into the surface of the concrete. The following day, the salt is washed away, revealing pits and impressions of salt. This popular finish leaves a unique and interesting design on the surface.
Washing of the top surface layer of the concrete to “expose” the aggregate or rock gives a natural, rugged look. The in-mix aggregate process includes rock pre-mixed into the concrete before it leaves the plant. It typically comes in three colors: overall grey, earth tones, and black/white. Hand seeded aggregate comes in bags and is casted by hand, then embedded into the top layer of the concrete. It’s available in a wide variety of colors. Both in-mix and hand seeded exposed aggregate processes compliment any landscape.
Stamp concrete provides a look that resembles natural stone and/or slate for a fraction of the cost of those stones. All textures look great as a single color or multi-colored.
We know how to set boundaries
No matter how small or large, we bring the highest quality materials and workmanship to set your boundaries in the most beautifully functional way. We install and repair fencing commercially and residentially, marking property lines, fencing in unsightly necessities, and creating unique spaces for homes, churches, schools, businesses, warehouses, and post offices.
Wood Privacy Fence
Cedar or pressure treated pine is the most popular enclosure for residential backyards and subdivision fencing. Basic dog ear fences, positive or negative scalloped fences, capped privacy fences with or without lattice toppers, all serve to provide privacy and security with varying degrees of decorative flair. Also available for maximum privacy, or commercial applications, such as dumpster enclosures. Shadowbox and colonial style fence provide good alternatives when total privacy is not as important. From posts to rails, to boards and nails, only the finest quality fence material is used. Projects are constructed on site by experienced installers to provide the optimum in quality installations.
Wood Picket Fence
Custom built on your property, we offer various heights, styles and spacing in spaced picket fences. Ideal for child and animal containment, these 4′ and 5′ high fences may also be used as perimeter fences, dividing fences and pool enclosures. We recommend 3’ and 4’ fencing to set off entrance ways, close off driveways, and fence around front yards.
Wood Rail Fence
Also known as “Ranch Rail,” use this style to define property lines, divide areas, and act as fall-protection along retaining walls. Available as 2 or 3 rail, and more rustic in appearance, split rail fence is an excellent alternative where blending into a natural setting is important.
PVC fences represent the best in the traditional look of a wood fence and durable, maintenance-free materials. Easily installed, economical, and virtually maintenance free, PVC fence is ideal for residential backyard fences as well as commercial applications.
Durable PVC fencing resists fading and yellowing for many years. Vinyl fence is available in a wide variety of colors, heights, and styles to accommodate almost any need. Ranch Rail, Crossbuck and Diamond Rail make excellent property dividers and provide a beautiful accent to any yard or perimeter. Full privacy & semi-privacy styles are available with or without lattice and picket-top accents. A wide variety of straight and concave or convex spaced picket styles give you a custom look while serving your needs.
Chain Link Fences
Versatile and economical, chain link fencing offers a practical solution for backyards, swimming pools, kennbels, playgrounds, security and wildlife barriers. From 4′ high backyard dog runs to 30′ high warehouse enclosures, chain link works for any application. Still popular, residential grade chain link comes in galvanized steel or black vinyl coated chain. Ideal for keeping dogs and kids in the yard.
Your house becomes the star under the bright lights
Set off the beauty of your home with dramatic outdoor landscape lighting and enjoy your peaceful retreat long after the sun sets. Landscape lighting brings trees and shrubs to life at night and accentuates features around your home that are not obvious during the day. Bring out the colors and shadows of foliage and the many textures in your lovely gardens with landscape lighting. Thoughtfully placed dramatic lighting enhances your home’s curb appeal at night. Your house doesn’t just stand out in the daylight, with landscape lighting, it shines at night.
Landscape lighting isn’t just for aesthetics or space definition. If designed correctly, it provides safety and security. Motion and timed lights deter criminals. Floodlights eliminate dark areas around windows and doors. Tier lights on steps and walkways prevent trips and falls.
American Landscape Design & Installation installs and repairs all styles of landscape lighting. Let us help you choose from a wide assortment of styles to design the perfect look for your home.
Leave installation of your outdoor lighting to the experts. Although landscape lighting is low-voltage and shock-free, improper installation leads to disaster. Outdoor wiring must be approved by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL), rated as water-resistant, and must always be grounded. Never use fixtures rated for indoor use only and only use specially marked lighting for pools and fountain lights.
Dark landscaping isn’t beautiful. Don’t let faulty lighting stop you from enjoying the nighttime beauty of your yard. Although most low voltage lighting problems have simple solutions, we understand how intimidating electrical problems can be. We’re your landscape lighting experts. We know how outdoor lighting systems work, even if we didn’t install them. We’ll shine a light on the problem by troubleshooting and repairing any problems you’re having with your landscape lighting system. You’ll once again enjoy the outdoor beauty of your yard.
Plant & Tree Planting
Plant & Tree Planting
Make your house the place you want to put down your roots
Trees and shrubs add grace, beauty and shade to any home. The gentle sway of branches and leaves dancing in the breeze contrast with harsh lines of the brick and stone of your house. A few simple shrubs and a tree or two significantly add value to your home with beautiful curb appeal and tickle your ears with the melodious sounds of birds singing from the branches of your trees.
American Landscape Design & Installation works with you to choose trees and shrubs that flourish in your landscape with little maintenance. We prepare your soil before planting to give your greenery the best nutrition for proper growth.
Left unattended, trees and shrubs go from places of shady refuge to house destroyers rather quickly. We provide regular pruning to protect your property from rogue limb damage and promote health and vigor in your trees and shrubs, increasing their ability to resist pests and disease.
Trained to know how to care for trees and shrubs, we should be your first call when you need help. Besides planting, pruning and trimming, we offer nutrition and fertilization services to keep your trees and shrubs healthy and strong. And when there is no life left, we remove the whole plant – stump and all.
Sod and Lawn Care
Sink your feet in the lush green carpet of your lawn
Maybe your grass is hungry, or you need to send the unwanted weed guests packing. Or maybe you have bare spots that need to be covered.
The best way to control weeds in your yard is to grow a thick, vigorous lawn. Dense grass crowds out weeds and blocks the sunlight their seeds need to germinate. We offer fertilization and weed control so your grass can reach its full potential, offering a soft green carpet of beauty surrounding your home.
When you have a bare patch, sod is often the best way to get fast growth. Because soil preparation is vital to the long term health and vigor of your lawn, we take great care to give your sod its best chance for optimal growth. That includes removing weeds, sticks and large rocks, roto-tilling to a good depth so sod roots can dig in deep, rough grade for proper drainage, and filling low spots. Sod is rolled out the next day and with proper watering, you’ll see thick, soft green grass where there was none.
Shower your home in lush beauty
You’ve made the decision to invest in landscaping for your property. Trees, shrubs and plants are in place. Your lawn is thick and soft and green. Without proper watering, all that hard work and money spent will be dead in a matter of days and weeks.
Investing in a sprinkler system pays for itself in time and effort saved. No need to constantly replace dead plants, no back breaking hauling out hoses, no worries about being home in time to water. You’re guaranteed to save money in watering. Automated systems do all the hard work for you so all you need to do is relax and enjoy your landscape investment.
We want to help you make your yard the best it can be, enriching the beauty, productivity, and sustainability of your outdoor environment.

Properly installed and maintained, an automatic sprinkler system helps to conserve water while providing a healthy, beautiful landscape to enjoy with your friends and family.
