About Us

News and Calendar

Middle Sound Landscaping is a full-service landscape contracting company based in Wilmington, North Carolina. We pride ourselves on delivering sustainable landscape designs for customers who seek first-rate, environmentally-conscious service at an affordable price point.

Our values strongly inform each project we undertake. As stewards of the environment, we believe in following the best horticultural practices, not only in the interest of sustaining our local environment, but also in improving the value of your property.

At Middle Sound Landscaping, we protect your investment as we would our own. That’s why we carefully consider your budget and lifestyle, and why we perform only the services necessary for your project. We are not an ordinary, “Mow, blow, and go!” company that pushes unneeded services on its clients. Quick, cosmetic, uniform care is not sustainable and is not our practice. Instead, we embrace expert horticultural care to glean the greatest return for our clients and their environment.

At Middle Sound Landscaping, we promise to provide our clients with high quality commercial grade products and services. We promise to maintain our memberships in local, state and national associations. We promise to participate in their programs, certifications and continuing education opportunities in order to provide our clients with the best management and installation practices in the landscaping industry.
