  • “We offer total project management from beginning to end and total maintenance of the project,” says Sharry Waldeck, manager of Frank Otte Landscape & Design. Waldeck says the most popular projects among clients right now are outdoor rooms and fireplaces.
  • When staff designers visit a site, they learn about the customers’ needs and desires, and more privacy is one of the most common requests. A desire for privacy means the design would likely include taller plants and perhaps even pergolas or other vertical structures.
  • Frank Otte Landscape & Design’s total maintenance offer includes trimming, pruning, and mulching (as needed) twice a year.
