Garden Maintenance

Gardening Services for Madison & Dane County

At Avant Gardening & Landscaping our goal is to customize a garden maintenance program to meet your needs, desires and budget. We don’t believe in the “one size fits all” approach to Wisconsin landscape maintenance. Each property and each homeowner is different so we strive to provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing your yard is being cared for the right way. Ultimately, it’s about giving you more time to spend in your yard instead of working on your yard.

Why Choose Avant Gardening & Landscaping for your Garden?

Our maintenance manager and foremen have degrees in Horticulture, Ornamental Horticulture, and Crop & Soil Science in addition to extensive experience in the field. Our staff receives ongoing training and are certified and licensed by the State of Wisconsin in pesticide application. When our crew comes to your residence, you’ll immediately see the difference professionally educated gardeners make in your landscape. They really know their plants — their habits and cultural requirements—and use thoughtful pruning methods that respect the natural growth form of the plant.

At Avant, we put as much thought and care into maintaining beautiful gardens and landscapes as we do in creating them. We like to think of ourselves as the ‘Gardener’s gardener’.

Our Services

Spring & Fall Garden Clean Up

Getting your garden off to a running start in the spring can be the key to having a great looking garden in the summer. Additionally, tucking things in properly before harsh Wisconsin winters makes a big difference to the health of your plants come springtime. Depending on the time of year and the needs of your specific garden we will cut back herbaceous plants, top dress mulch, re-cut natural bed edges, weed and prune as needed, and remove leaf litter and other debris.

Regular Annual Garden Maintenance

You sit back and enjoy your garden. Let us take care of the never-ending weeding, deadheading, light pruning, staking, and monitoring for disease and insect problems. You help determine the frequency of our visits based on your property’s scope and your preferences.

Lawn Care

A healthy lawn is built from the soil up. We tailor your lawn care program to fit the needs of your turf and your lifestyle. We only apply fertilizers and herbicides when necessary. Customized lawn care is better for your pocketbook, the environment and your lawn’s health. Learn more about our organic lawn care program.

One-time Gardening Services

Hosting a backyard barbecue, graduation party or outdoor wedding this year? Are you planning to sell your property but need some curb appeal? We offer one-time maintenance visits to enhance your landscape and reduce your stress level before the big event.

Annual & Container Displays

The explosion of color provided by annuals is incomparable! We create a design that complements your home and individual style. By carefully selecting plants with unique texture and form, we can make that empty courtyard, shady fence line or unwelcoming front entryway your favorite part of the landscape. Our multi-seasonal approach to annual displays can create year-round interest.

Vegetable Garden Preparation

Enjoy reduced grocery bills and health benefits with home-grown vegetables. We can prepare your vegetable garden plot, plant locally grown organic veggie starts, perform weed removal, and even do the harvesting for you.
