Kane Landscapes, Inc. has been providing high quality professional landscape services to residents of Northern Virginia for over 20 years. With a company focus on quality and detail, Kane Landscapes is dedicated to making your life easier by providing trained crews to design, install and maintain almost any aspect of your landscape. Members of PLANET(Professional Landcare Network), LCA (Landscape Contractors Association), ICPI (Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute), as well as being Belgard, EP Henry, and Techo-Bloc authorized contractors, you can trust that Kane Landscapes will complete the job the correct way using the latest techniques and tools. There are many important differences that set us apart from the numerous other landscape companies out there, here are just a few:
Licenses and Insurance
We are fully insured to protect you, your neighbors and your home. Having an uninsured company or worker install your project not only puts you at risk of not having damaged property paid for, YOU become responsible for their medical bills and workers compensation claim if they are injured while working for you.
Education and Continual Training
We strongly believe the best employees are well trained and educated employees. Most of our managers and designers have degrees in Horticulture, are Certified Landscape Technicians and hold ICPI certifications for proper understanding of soil matrixes and patio construction. These guys know landscaping.
Not only is it nice to have someone politely answer your call, it is even better when they are knowledgeable and helpful. Our office staff is there to help you get your questions answered or direct you to the right person in our company who can.
Our foremen, most of whom have been with Kane Landscapes, Inc. for many years, have all been screened by the social security administration to ensure that they are U.S. citizens or legally permitted to work in the U.S. For much of our labor we use the governmental H2B temporary worker visa program to guarantee that our entire workforce is legal. Not only is this the right thing to do, it ensures that we know who is on your property.
Not only has Kane landscapes, Inc. won numerous landscape design and installation awards, but for many years now we have been awarded PLANET’s Gold level overall safety award – showing how proactive we are to protect our employees and your property. View Awards
Overall Quality and Finished Job
It really is the little things that matter. Was the base of the patio built to the correct thickness? Was the sand that was swept between the pavers the polymeric sand or just masonry sand that will wash out? Did they take care of the drainage pipes, install extra conduit? Are they going to re-sod the lawn or just spread some seed and so on and so on. Attention to these details is what really matters and allows our clients to know that we have really put thought and effort into their projects.
