A Focus on Sustainability
At Drake’s, sustainability has always been part of our DNA. We work with nature. We build up soils organically and create naturally sustaining landscapes tailored to the unique ecosystems of your yard. We favor native, drought-resistant plant materials, and we feature organic amendments, compost teas, and natural pesticides. This very culture of sustainability is the reason Drake’s was selected to design and build the healing gardens at Adventist Medical Center and the Natural College of Naturopathic Medicine.
Honesty & Professionalism
We began our business in a time when your word was your bond. And we’ve never lost that ethic. In everything, we are here to serve our customers. We endeavor to set expectations with clear and timely communication. We stand behind our work and will not take shortcuts or use shady tactics. We follow a clear and well-outlined methodology for all our services, so clients are never left to wonder how, why, or when. In short, we believe the measure of our success comes from both a job well done and our story well told.
