Landscape Planting

Broccolo’s certified plant professionals consult, design, build, and maintain many types
of plantings for small or large residential and commercial properties.

Many of our annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees are locally grown from our own nursery or from partnerships with certified growers in the Northeast region. Planting designs range from Asian gardens, to formal or naturalized cottage garden styles. We choose plants based on their required environment of sun or shade, and types of soils.

With our special expertise in native plants, Broccolo can help surround your home with
beauty and endless enjoyment for watching birds and butterflies. Sustainable Landscaping includes reducing high maintenance lawns. We create diverse habitats for pollinators and incorporate rain gardens for storm water management.

Consider a smaller lawn area with more plantings. Lawn mowing contributes to the nation’s oil consumption and pollutant emissions. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, turf grass is the nation’s largest irrigated crop, covering more than 40 million acres. Mowers consume 1.2 billion gallons of gasoline annually, about 1% of U.S. motor gasoline consumption.

Broccolo guarantees all shrubs and trees planted by our professionals for one year!

Healthy soil leads to healthy plants. Our certified arborists and technicians will protect your investment by using soil enhancements, organic matter, and proper planting techniques.In fact, with careful planting and a small amount of maintenance, you can have landscape interest throughout the years—increasing not only in beauty, but also in property value.

Water features create a focal point within your landscape for humans and wildlife alike. All water features, fountains, waterfalls, ponds, or rain gardens, provide soothing sights and sounds that help you relax and de-stress in today’s busy world. Whether you want a focal design for your outdoor living space, the relaxing sound of a waterfall in a meditation garden, or habitat for birds and butterflies—nothing can compare to soothing water.
