Allentuck Landscaping’s Inside Dirt – June 2017

Gratitude written on top of a smooth stone

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

It has been a long spring, there is no denying it. With lots of new customers and not enough team members everyone has had to put in extra hours and work a little harder and smarter. I know everyone is getting tired of the extra work days. At the very least, a little extra jangle in the paycheck makes the effort a little easier.

I am real proud of how everyone has worked with such a positive attitude. Quality and customer service continues to be high and it is noticed. I received this email just last night:

“The entire Allentuck team beginning with Tim has been very impressive. I’m glad I made the decision to go with Allentuck.”

We still have a lot of work to get through. This is a good thing. In years past, as you know, summers have been a little slow. I do not think this will happen this year.

Please keep up the great spirit and the fantastic quality. As always, take care of each other and take care of our customers.

Thank you for what each of you do.

With gratitude,


Living Our Core Values

Serving Those Who Served

Last month, Allentuck Landscaping Co. agreed to take part in Greencare For Troops, a non-profit organization that helps soldiers who are deployed receive landscape maintenance for their homes while they are away serving our country over sea. It may not sound like a lot to take care of someone’s home for them while they are away, but by us and other companies lending a hand, it is one less thing for the soldier or their spouse to worry about. Being deployed is stressful enough.

I am proud that our company is in a position to help and that everyone who works here chips in with a smile. It is a testament to the kind of people who make Allentuck Landscaping Co. the special company that we are. It is what makes me proud to have the chance to work with each of you.

Giving back to our community is one of our Core Values!

Property Pitfalls: Why You Shouldn’t Upgrade an Old Patio

Don’t let an outdated patio cost you time and money, down the line. While it may seem like a cost-effective solution, upgrading an old patio can be a costly decision. Between shaky foundations and deteriorating patio pavers, there are potential dangers hiding in every corner. More often than not, it’s best to replace your patio rather than repair it.

Best Patio Materials For Your Home
