Carefree Landscapes is a full-service landscape design, installation and maintenance company based in the greater Asheville, North Carolina area. We service clients all over Western North Carolina and the Upstate of South Carolina.
Danny Scroggs' career in the green industry began as Lawn Care Plus in 1991, serving the public in the area of lawn maintenance. He realized immediately that the public was concerned with several things: integrity, reliability, consistent quality and accessibility. As Lawn Care Plus grew through the years, his focus was on providing these elements, while he performed lawn maintenance and related services for numerous clients. Soon he realized that a good work ethic and skill in mowing was not enough! He made a decision in 1997 to begin seeking education about turfgrass management and related subjects, and to branch out into horticulture and landscape contracting.
As a result of numerous schools, classes, and certifications earned, his focus and fields of expertise broadened gradually from lawn care to ornamental horticulture, landscape design and installation, hardscapes, water features, irrigation, stone work and pavers, and much more. Among the many schools and classes he successfully completed are Landscape Design curriculum at Blue Ridge Community College, Certified Plant Professional school, Certified Irrigation Contractor school, Certified Landscape Technician (now known as Landscape Industry Certified) school, and many others.
By the year 2000, the company Lawn Care Plus, which began 9 years earlier as a "one man band", had grown strongly, taken on several talented employees, and had become a new company with a new, broadened focus: Carefree Landscapes.
As Carefree Landscapes, Danny and his workers collectively provide landscape design and installation for new landscapes, landscape consultation services, and renovation of existing landscapes for clients in Western North Carolina. They install and maintain irrigation, and take pride in high quality hardscapes such as water features, patios and stone work. Lawn renovations and sod installations are a specialty. They also provide year round landscape management, including traditional lawn maintenance. Fertilization and disease control are important aspects of their service.
Just as professionals in many career fields need continuing education, landscaping is no different. In many diverse areas, from pesticides, to new methods of controlling plant diseases, to native stream buffers, to landscape and irrigation design topics, (just to name a few), there are countless areas in which quality minded landscape personnel need ongoing education. They pride themselves in making continuing education a priority, and devoting a significant portion of time and energy to it.
Danny is committed to providing you with the highest quality work, whether installing quality plants and landscape elements, or maintaining your landscape. Carefree Landscapes is insured, for your protection and peace of mind. The installation of your landscape is not an expense, but an investment in the beauty and intrinsic value of your home. Therefore, it should be left to knowledgeable, reliable and caring professionals who use only the finest materials, and who are committed to high standards.
It's no secret to anyone that we live in challenging times. What began for Danny many years ago as "lawn care" morphed into landscape management, horticulture, water features, patios and irrigation, even as he continued to serve in the areas of landscape and lawn care. For many years there was consistent growth in the economy, and in their business as well. The economic downturn of the last few years has hurt many people, and caused some fear and reality checks. Business as usual, which sufficed for a long time, will not get most people through this situation. The crew at Carefree Landscapes realize this and are always taking hard looks at what they do, what value they provide for you, their clients, and striving to do things in better and more competitive ways. But their overriding concern is providing the highest quality services for their clients, and their motivation is seeing the results of their work, and seeing happy, satisfied clients!
