Few activities are more relaxing and enjoyable than spending time outdoors with friends and family. At this time of year when it’s still warm outdoors that experience can extend into the evening. At Frontier we recommend Outdoor Lighting to enhance your Landscape, extend the time you can spend outdoors – as well as the safety aspects that come with having a well-lit garden or landscape.
Got a great garden? Why not flaunt it by night? Using overhead, in-ground and other types of fixtures you’ll create after-dark excitement – and deter trespassers at the same time. There are many different moods and lighting options that your professionals at Frontier Landscaping can introduce as options for you to best suit your personal needs and taste.
Lighting the outside of your home is not difficult, but an evening stroll around the neighborhood quickly reveals it’s easy to make mistakes…Too dark on one side, not enough light on the other…. Extremely bright then casting shadows over the front entry… not the right “type” of lighting, etc. The Frontier Landscaping Team will help you steer clear of such ‘missteps’ and find the types and styles of lighting to achieve the style and functionality that you are looking for!
A newly-planted young tree is staked to stabilize it until the roots extend through the soil sufficiently to support it without assistance. Even slight uprooting, if not discovered promptly, can lead to damage or death of the tree.
Trees that may need staking include those with roots inadequate to support above-ground mass, which is the case for bare root trees or those with small root balls. Tall, top-heavy trees and slender, delicate trunks may also need some help.
Qualities of the site or soil may also dictate the need for additional support. These sights include windy areas, extreme rainfall and locations with alot of human or animal traffic.
Soil texture plays a lot in anchoring the roots properly. Sandy loam, loose organic material and forest fines are some examples of that. In this case, more stabilization and soil amendments may be required for proper rooting to occur. The rooting process usually takes about 1 year.
As we see in the first photo, someone was very determined to immobilize this tree!
Complete immobility is not a reasonable or desired result.
* If wind or other factors cause strong movement, the one-sided mooring can
cause the young tree to snap.
* The fasteners will rub against the tree bark, eliminating the tree’s protection
wherever there is friction and expose the tree to moisture and illness. If a tree has
too much of it’s protective bark removed, it is likely that the tree will die from the
exposure. This is referred to as “girdling.”
Correct tree staking employs two or more stakes opposite each other, and ideally parallel to the direction of the prevailing wind whenever possible.
* Proper tree staking/strapping materials are flexible, non-abrasive and adjustable and
should not be tied too tightly but have a little “give”.
* The tree is allowed some movement of trunk and branches, while keeping it’s
feet firmly planted. This kind of movement stimulates root growth as well as
Increasing the growth of the trunk diameter, leading to a much more healthy
outcome for the tree.
Usually, depending on the size of the tree when it was planted, the strapping or staking materials can be removed at the beginning of the next growth cycle. If staking is to remain in place, the strapping and adjustments must be checked to make sure the tension is correct and the bark of the tree free of restrictions.
Thank you to our customers, employees, vendors/business associates, peers and community for all the wonderful support! February marks the 30th year in business! WOW, what a ride!
Frontier Landscaping grew from a passion of the outdoors. Steve has loved the design and installation aspect of landscaping since high school and into college. Being able to see a design or idea become a reality on a homeowner’s property inspired Tina and Steve to start working out of their mobile home park with their 1974 Ford truck, trailer and a 60’s Massey Ferguson tractor that they cleaned up and painted. From the beginning we saw the value in clean rigs with nice signage and word of mouth business. Today we have well over 20 trucks in our fleet with the recognizable white and dark blue trucks with wagon logo. We started doing landscaping the first few years while Tina worked another job to make ends meet and also did our books. Steve and a couple of guys started doing the Landscaping. We started growing and added the maintenance department in about 1995 and in 2010 we brought in Sunshine Tree Service a very well- known and respected tree company that started in 1980. Since then the name has been changed to Frontier Tree Service.
Due to our growth and community support, it has allowed us to be able to give back to the community. We have en
joyed many community service events over the years and will continue for many more years to come!
Forward to 2018 we are a full-service Landscape company with three divisions, landscape construction, tree service and maintenance and have grown to over 40 employees. This would not have been possible without all the support of our awesome team members, community and most of all our clients.
We are nothing without our outstanding employees. From the very beginning in 1988 to today they have provided the skills and talents necessary to provide our quality services. Thank you all for taking the ride with us. Many have come and gone and will always be remembered. We are grateful for your service with Frontier. All of our past and current emp
loyee’s passion is what helped mold Frontier Landscaping to what it is today.
We value improving our expertise and safety through training. Some of our employees are certified as arborist, back flow inspectors, erosion control specialist, and pesticide applicators. We also have employees certified in CPR. We are proud of the time they have spent to get educated in our industry.
The future is bright, and we expect to continue growing and exploring new ways to improve our services. We look forward to another 30 years with you!
Thank you again!

While many of us spend our winters focused on indoor activities, if you’ve been thinking about installing a new patio, retaining wall, pavers, water feature, or any other outdoor living space, don’t wait for spring to get started. Winter is the best
time to do it, and here’s why:
Take a look at your property in the wintertime: Stark, dormant, monochromatic,and the perfect canvas upon which to design the ideal outdoor living space.
Importantly, this also allows us to take a look at how your property handles wintertime weather, such as water runoff and address any drainage or irrigation issues – whether through repair or installation—thereby ensuring that after your project is completed, it will weather the next winter without some of the unwelcome surprises that otherwise weren’t revealed during the summer months.
We’ll also be able to address tree issues, whether it’s pruning, installation or removal—quickly and with less visual impact.
It’s no secret that during the colder, slower months the line moves much faster to get projects started and completed. And, should your plans call for any permitting, the lowered rate of competition for these services will speed things up for you.
If you’re not going to be entertaining outside right now, the need to be patient with a construction zone at your home will be greatly reduced. Once it’s completed you’ll be able to accessorize with plants, planters, and all the fun stuff involved with adding decorative touches.
Outside of the peak season, we can work with you to design a project budget that works the most efficiently for all of us, and when you’re not rushed, you’re far less likely to discover additional needs that can add to the cost.
Endless Outdoor Living
And while you’re at it, how about a pergola over a hot tub, or a fire pit to extend your outdoors enjoyment beyond our brief summer months! It’s easier than you think to create the outdoor landscape you’ve been dreaming about.
