Local Landscaping Services

Welcome!  Here are some local landscaping and hardscaping businesses we have used and have done good work for us.  These businesses are independent of Flat Creek Plant Farm, but we may benefit if you use them.  Mainly this page is to help folks that we like connect with clients, we know how hard it is to find good help these days!

Plant Consulting

The off-season for the farm is December-February and to a lesser degree July/August.  During those months Ryan does site visits for those of you who need a little help deciding what to plant.

Email Ryan at flatcreekplants@gmail.com (best)  For planning and design inquiries please include pictures of the space and the amount of sunlight the area gets, if possible.

Phone is 828-708-1468, text only please, we get a lot of spam calls and service is spotty at the nursery.

Grading/Excavation/Retaining Walls

DMP Construction/Damian Mendez

Damian and his crew is our go-to for most of the big projects we have on the farm.  So far he’s installed a retaining wall for us, replaced an asphalt driveway, replaced our septic system (the whole thing, tank and drain field), and other general land jobs.  He is easy to work with, knowledgeable, and very reliable.  Free estimates.

Equipment: 1-ton truck, excavator, skid steer, roller

We find it best if we handle getting the materials.  While his focus is on grading and hardscaping, we’ve found there isn’t much he can’t figure out, or find people who can.

Phone:  828-458-8161 or 828-458-2589  Don’t forget to tell him we sent you!

Tree Removal/Trimming/Lawns

Martin Grass N Decks/Martin Mendez

Ryan has known Martin for almost 15 years, back in his BBQ pit days.  His dad was an arborist in Guatemala and he grew up working with him.  As far as trees go, there isn’t much he and his crew can’t handle.

Equipment available:  1 Ton truck, excavator, wood chipper, dumptruck.  Free estimates.

Phone:  828-407-6724

Marty also does lawn maintenance, fences, and hardscaping.

The Scout Guide, Asheville

We’ve partnered with Asheville Scout Guide this year and they have been great to us. Their site is an excellent place to start if you are new to town and looking for cool local businesses.

Random Acts of Flowers, Asheville

We’ve done some plant sales with RAF Asheville for the last couple of years, a grassroots little charity that takes flowers to people in hospital or other healthcare facilities.  Good folks.
