We don’t believe in the “one size fits all” approach to landscape maintenance. Our goal is to tailor a maintenance program to your landscape and your budget. Learn more about our customized Wisconsin landscape maintenance.


Our lawn care staff only applies herbicides and fertilizers when necessary. We customize a program to fit the needs of your turf and your lifestyle. A tailored organic lawn care program is better for the Wisconsin environment, your lawn’s health and your pocketbook.


Add beauty and curb appeal to your yard through the artful use of trees, shrubs and perennials carefully chosen to match your homes character and your style.


Whether for large gatherings or intimate nights, a patio should function like an outdoor room. Landscape lighting, a firepit or water feature can all add ambiance and value to your backyard retreat. Likewise, different surface materials such as natural stone, concrete pavers, and clay bricks can each create a unique look and feel. Our landscape design staff works closely with you to sift through all thte options and create a space you’ll want to spend all your time in.


Retaining walls come in all shapes and sizes. They can hold back a raised portion of your yard, function as a seat, or just serve as an interesting vertical element. Selecting the right style and material is a matter of form, function, and budget.


Water has tremendous power to shape the landscape. As a result, proper grading and stormwater management is the first thing to consider in any landscape project. Avant Gardening & Landscaping is proud to have solved many difficult and sensitive drainage problems using ecologically effective methods.
