Earthworks was founded in 1969 as a residential lawn care company. Over the years, we expanded our services to include complete landscape maintenance and installation.
In 1977, we took our first steps into the commercial market, and also expanded the landscape construction department by offering drainage and irrigation systems as well as annual flower and interior planting installactions and maintenance.
In 1984, we decided to concentrate solely on the commercial market and the course was charted to grow Earthworks into what is now one of the largest locally owned full service landscape firms servicing Western Washington.
In 1988, a landscape designer was hired and a separate construction division was created to provide planning and design services for the enhancement needs of our client base. Supervisors were added at each branch to oversee the enhancement projects and ensure quality workmanship.
Our early years of learning all aspects of landscaping gave us the foundation to become a truly full service landscape firm.
As the Puget Sound area expanded and our company grew, Earthworks added a branch in Sumner in 1990 and then opened a third branch in Bellevue in 1997 to more efficiently accommodate our expanding client base and service area. In 2005, we built a new corporate office and moved our north branch to Mukilteo.
With each expansion, an area manager was hired to run the day-to-day operations, and shortly thereafter, supervisors were added to help maintain quality standards. Each of Earthwork’s managers has over 10 years in the landscape industry, with a broad array of knowledge and experience in both landscape maintenance and installation to handle any of our client’s needs. Combining this experience with our commitment to service has allowed us to continue to grow without sacrificing our corporate principles and philosophy.
