We can turn your dreams into reality. Those are big words but what does that process look like? Hear more about the Good Earth Great Experience through the words of our clients.
We live on a difficult property, at the bottom of a hill, with a backyard that was full of problems. We were able to trust Good Earth to expertly execute a complete redesign, even when there were a few surprises. We got a beautiful and functional stone retention wall, drainage, irrigation, and landscaping. It was a complicated project and we’re thankful we had their team of experts on the job.
It’s difficult to describe how much the use and enjoyment of our property was improved. It’s a dream backyard that might outlast the house!
We are in our second year with our landscaping. It is amazing to watch the perennials coming back in this spring, and to see how well the color and heights were planned out. Cody helped us use native plants and grasses to create beds in our front and side yard, and he worked with us to stay within our budget by planning a yard that would look modest year one, but that would grown into something beautiful. Working with Cody was very easy. He was prompt in delivering plans and estimates, but also patient as we looked for the right plants and trees.
Cody did a fantastic job creating a plan for my front flower beds! His team was efficient and very knowledgeable about the plants they were bringing to me, and I can say after the winter has come and gone it is fantastic to see all of that work bloom beautifully this spring! I just emailed them to come work on my backyard for me! I highly recommend Good Earth and Cody!
We approached Goo Earth with a project for our backyard, Chad came for a consultation and based on our goals presented a very straightforward proposal and design. We approved the proposal and as soon as weather permitted the job was executed seamlessly in 2 days, our patio looks great and they were right on budget.
Good Earth is now caring for all landscaping and lawn maintenance needs at our facility. They have done an amazing job! They show up when they say they will be there. The workers are professional, friendly and quiet when working up around the building. They always leave the worksite tidy if a project extends into the next day. They recently placed a complicated French drain to redirect water from the front door. After a downpour yesterday, we have no more flooding under the front door. Great job, Good Earth! We are more than pleased to have them caring for us!
I cannot recommend The Good Earth enough. They did a beautiful job designing and landscaping my back and front yards and met all of my deadlines. I always get compliments on my yard! I had some hydrangeas that were struggling because they were not getting enough sun and Good Earth promptly replaced them with an alternative and refunded me for the originals. They were also very mindful of my budget and always transparent about cost beforehand. 5 stars!
Zak and his team are wonderful, very professional, highly experienced and creative. They were able to put a design together that transformed our acreage into a beautiful lawn. I was very impressed with how knowledgeable they were regarding plant and tree species as well as drainage and creating privacy with perimeter shrubs/trees. They didn’t take any shortcuts and went above and beyond in my opinion regarding the little details of the project. Even more impressive was the dedication to completing the project once started and working from early morning to sunset even through Labor Day weekend. I highly recommend The Good Earth!
Zak and his crew at Good Earth did an incredible job transforming our yard. They did such a good job on our front yard that we are planning for them to transform or backyard next year. Get Zak to plan your landscape. You won’t be disappointed.
The Good Earth just finished a massive landscaping project at our home, and it’s just beautiful! Our project manager and the crew were so professional and friendly. They always let me know when they were coming, and if there was a change in the schedule! They cleaned up each and every day, even when they were coming back in the morning! The work is exactly what we wanted – one time, they spent the whole day redoing something that wasn’t done just the way we wanted. The guys went over and above what we expected from them. We have 2 new water features and a large newly landscaped area around our home in the heart of Ferndale! Thank you, Good Earth!
I have been a Good Earth customer for the last 25 or 30 years. They have always done such a good job for my business, Rees Commercial, Inc. and at my home in Chenal. They come right out and get the job started quickly and it’s always delivered on time with beautiful flowers, trees and shrubs. We appreciate their “can do” attitude and friendly service and we would certainly recommend them to anyone that might want to make their homes and office buildings more beautiful. Thanks Good Earth for a job well done for the last thirty years. We at Rees Commercial certainly appreciate your work and will continue to use you in the future. Thanks for a job well done!!
Zak Grothe designed a beautiful plan for my flower beds and supervised the installation from beginning to end. The Good Earth’s installation team was extremely efficient and careful to not disturb parts of the lawn that weren’t involved in this project. My new plants have thrived; not a single shrub or bit of ground cover has died. I am very pleased with my experience with The Good Earth and recommend this company without reservation.
The Good Earth has cared for our yard for years, so we met with them regarding backyard improvements Chad listened carefully to my ideas and questions about tree selection and native plants. He provided useful information for decisions regarding removing previous trees. The Good Earth had a great selection of tree choices. New trees were welcome replacements for struggling firs and excess shade. A Redbud tree is visible when we arrive home and provides a nice welcome. The crew worked with high standards, to create the environment we were looking for. It’s a pleasure to be outside now amongst the refreshing new surroundings.
I have been pleased with every aspect of working with The Good Earth Garden Center on our project and would do so again. The crew anticipates our needs and works well with our Basset Hounds!
The Good Earth landscape team has done two jobs for me this year. The team was pleasant, competent, and efficient. The result met my expectations and then some. I definitely recommend them.
We are still in awe of our newly landscaped backyard. Chad’s design was beyond our expectation! The crew was professional and courteous; their attention to detail was impeccable. If our yard looks this fabulous in winter, then we cannot imagine how glorious it will be this spring. Hanging out on the back porch admiring our Garden of Eden has become our favorite pastime.
All the employees at Good Earth are true professionals. Their main goal is taking care of the client and producing an excellent final product. It is always a pleasure to work with them.
We are extremely pleased with Good Earth’s landscaping plan and implementation of this plan for our yard. From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience- very professional. And, above all, it looks beautiful!
The Good Earth Landscaping team did an amazing job of transforming our back yard from start to finish. Chad spent time listening to our desires and needs before the work ever started. He presented a detailed plan and estimate for our approval in a very timely fashion and ordered the supplies. His communication from start to finish was great! When the hard working landscape team arrived they stayed on task and finished the job in record time. I have never seen should hard working men take pride in their work…they were all very professional! It all looked perfect, better than we expected!! I will not hesitate to call them again for my next landscaping need.
For several years I was frustrated with my back yard. Too much shade had killed off most of my grass. Also, I was wanting a bit of an update. I was talking to Greg Hanson about the yard. He brought over Chad Oppenhuizen, the landscape architect. He came up with some great ideas while incorporating things that I wanted. A win/win situation! I’m very happy with my yard now. My sister now wants Chad to help with her yard. I appreciate their hard work.
I have been a very satisfied and well pleased Good Earth customer for several years. When confronted with a problem at my business where erosion had created a safety issue for my employees walking from their parking area into our building, I contacted Good Earth Landscaping experts to solve my unsafe situation. Chad and his team devised a series of steps designed from flat rock pavers that blended in perfectly to our area providing safe decent to our walkway entering the building. The project was finished in a timely manner and completely on budget. Great Job!
Could not ask for a more professional company to work with. They have been extremely helpful with all the projects I have needed done at different locations. The latest project I was more than impressed with how professional the landscaping looked when it was finished. It looked like it was always that way and it was a mess before they started. Having to rip out old shrubs and landscaping and to re sod and make it look like it was always like that. Thank you very much for being quick and making it like I was wanting.
I am thrilled with the remodel Good Earth has done with my backyard. Years ago, Good Earth planned the backyard with a pond and plantings. Times have changed. This year, we decided the pond was looking sad and we were looking for an updated design. Cody and the design team came up with a new plan for a water feature that included a bubbling boulder, and new plantings and paths. The crew had it all in and running in just a few days. It’s stunning. I highly recommend the Good Earth Garden Center.
I have been going to Good Earth for some years. My property is fairly large and spread out and they have consistently provided healthy and beautiful plants for my summer and fall decorating. We recently used Good Earth for a Landscaping Project for our property entrance. It turned out gorgeous and several neighbors have already inquired as to who did it. Cody was a very nice person to work with and it went seamless. They came in did their job and left my property beautiful. I will continue to use Good Earth for all my landscaping needs. The people are friendly and you can tell they like to plant too.
Chad at Good Earth was assigned our project. We gave him an idea of what we wanted and the problems with our yard. Specifically, lots of sun and tree roots. He came up with a plan which was acceptable both in scope and price. His guys did a great job and Chad stayed with the project from start to finish. Others in our neighborhood had used Good Earth and were very satisfied as we are. Would recommend Chad.
Chad and his team were awesome to work with. Chad took me step-by-step through the process, even spending a morning at the nursery walking around and showing me exactly the types of plants that would work best for my front yard. And when there was some last minute tweaking towards completion, it was done the very next day. The finished product is beyond what I envisioned. Thanks Good Earth!
Cody did a wonderful job with developing a landscape plan for our front yard. He had great ideas and frequently worked with towards the vision we had. Because our yard has fairly steep slope, and a lot lot of shade with mature trees that we wanted to preserve, Cody came up with an excellent design despite the challenges. The installation crew, led by David, also did an excellent job with the retaining walls made out of natural stone, and stone walkways that produced a unique look and feel. Thank you men for all the hard work done on some very hot days! The Good Earth has created a wonderful and much needed refreshed curb appeal for our home and we are thankful for their expertise. We recommend anyone to The Good Earth. Thank you, Terry & Gina Brown
We recently purchased a new home, and while we loved the home, the landscaping left something to be desired. We worked with Cody to create a plan for our front and back yard, and the experience could not have been better. We widened our front beds to fit the scale of our home, added new stone edging and replaced all of the plantings. Cody and his team were helpful, professional, responsive and made sure that our yard was in perfect order when the project was complete. We could not be more pleased with our new landscaping and highly recommend The Good Earth.
We had such a wonderful experience working with Cody and the rest of the team at The Good Earth. They were quick and efficient and managed to come in under budget, even with some unexpected costs due to previously unknown sprinkler issues. We live on a rather busy street corner and we cannot count the number of people we see walking by and admiring the work. We’ve had numerous people tell us how great everything looks and we agree!
Cody at Good Earth worked with us through several design iterations to arrive at a great design which was executed on time. His attention during the project was good. The crew was courteous and worked diligently to finish on time and readily accepted small changes made during the installation. We are very happy with the result.
Leave all your landscape worries with Good Earth’s landscape crew. They recently completed a major project for us that had significant terrain and design challenges. Not only did Zak, David and their crew knock it out of the park, they did it all within our original landscape budget. I also want to mention how clean they left our job site each day making sure our property was clean and still safe for our family. They are true professionals and we could not be any happier with our investment.
Thanks to Zak and his team from The Good Earth, we finally have the pool area we had hoped for.
Their professionalism and attention to detail made this a very pleasurable experience.
The Good Earth Garden team was fantastic to work with. With Chad and Greg’s design expertise, they listened to my vision and designed a beautiful landscape for my home. From the water features, to the clay pots and plant species chosen, I could have not asked for a more lovely outcome. I look forward to working with the talented team at the Good Earth Garden in the future.
Chad and his team did great work. This is our second landscaping project with The Good Earth, front yard first and now backyard, and we have been very pleased each time.
My house had old shrubbery that was hiding the house. I wanted my front lawn to have more grass and lower shrubs so you could see the architecture of the house. Chad gave me a plan showing what could be done and after they removed a dozen old shrubs. Good Earth planted beautiful new smaller plants that compliment the house. They also filled in some beds with sod to give a fresher look. We have gotten favorable comments from neighbors and I am very pleased with the project.
I can’t say enough about Zak and Good Earth. They have done my yard several times. They are the best… Zak is so good with design and his crew is so good about getting it all done. I’m always so happy with everything they do. Can’t wait til Spring!
After working with Cody on some ideas I had for a very slanted backyard that washed out regularly to the fence, he started the wheels rolling. We agreed on the estimate, talked about plants that would do well in my partially shaded, partially sun baked yard, talked about stone options for the walkway. Based on those decisions, we had to move some sprinklers and a drain off of one of the gutters. Everything was handled with his team perfectly. His team showed up right on time every morning and worked until late afternoon. He definitely delivered what I asked for and we even extended the original design to the fence. It turned out gorgeous and all my neighbors asked to see what Good Earth did. They agreed it was really changed the look of the backyard- now a pleasant oasis to enjoy. Cody even came back days after it was finished to make sure that nothing washed out or needed tweaking after a good rain. Now that is above and beyond what I expected! I was more than pleased with the entire experience and would recommend Good Earth for your landscape dream.
I love my new backyard. 20 Years ago Zak Grothe from Good Earth landscaped my new yard. It was awesome. 20 years later it needed a re-do. It was good for a long time but needed updating. I called Zak to see if he would like to do it again. Zak and the guys from Good Earth came out and I asked them to do whatever they thought would make it look awesome again. It is fabulous!!! We will re-do the front in early spring. We live on the PV golf course and I am so proud for all the golfers and visitors to see my backyard. Thank you Good Earth and Zak.
I called the Good Earth to replace the aging plants in a raised bed in my front yard and I was very pleased with the service I received. Cody was great, he listened to my requests and made excellent recommendations. He showed up with a skilled crew and was in and out with very little disruption. He left everything clean and best of all the invoice was well under the original quote.
My wife and I recently built a house which needed typical landscaping with sod and some trees but we also had more challenging features in that we built on a hill, have large planters in the front and sides, drainage issues and multiple steps in the back. Working with Chad has been a great experience. The recommendations and ideas that Chad proposed complemented the house and were exactly what Diana and I were expecting from the known reputation of The Good Earth. The Field Crew were very experience and still know how to use a wheelbarrow and shovel. They went above and beyond with details that weren’t even indicated on the drawing. In addition to the standard sod, trees and plants, they turned potential water drainage issues into 2 beautiful dry creek beds down both sides of the lot, installed landscape lighting in the front which included lights on the drive and sidewalks. Step lighting on the stairs in the back not only improves safety it really adds a nice feature the backyard. We would highly recommend using The Good Earth for your next Landscaping project.
We were bery pleased with the work you guys did. We liked the plan, the plants, and the service.
Zak and the team at Good Earth are phenomenal! Professional, reliable, efficient and knowledgeable, they made our landscape job a breeze. We had a few unique challenges and Zak was very creative and budget conscious. We are so pleased with their work, and will definitely be using their expertise again in the future!
The Good Earth team is incredible! We have moved three times in our time in Little Rock over the last 20 years. At each home, we have partnered with Zak Grothe and his team to enhance where we live and spend our time. Zak is really creative in his design and how he makes the final product look amazing. He and his team always over-deliver with the work they do. They finds ways to make the designs work and we have always been so pleased with the result. We are thankful and could not be more happy with the Good Earth!
Cody planned all our flowers and designed the layout and Greg supervised. They finished in a timely manner and it was below the estimate! Our yards are so beautiful, people in the neighborhood drive by to see it. Thank you for making our own piece of heaven.
Good Earth provided a complete and detailed estimate after walking the project area and talking through my goals and expectations. The work crew was professional and worked hard to complete the project as expected within the timeframe discussed. The project was completed under budget and met all of my expectations. Once the work crew completed their work, they cleaned up throughly and left no trace. Following the project, Good Earth sent a nice thank you with an assortment of small gifts. The level of follow-up was unexpected.
Good Earth testimonial
Let me start by saying we highly recommend Good Earth Landscaping services! We selected them to completely re-landscape our backyard.
We had removed 8 large Cypress trees and 2 large Maple trees that had covered our yard with extensive root systems. We developed a plan with suggested trees/shrubs/plants and submitted it for their review. Their design architect, Chad Oppenhuizen, met with us on site where we adjusted and finalized the plan. Chad worked up an estimate which we accepted. Work was scheduled for late spring.
A three man team, supervised by Greg, and led by team leader Jose, worked tirelessly and meticulously to implement the plan. Major efforts included:
* Removing extensive root systems
* Preparing planting beds with super soil
* Installing all plant material according to plan
* Installing stone borders between plants and grass areas
* Modifying existing sprinkler lines/heads
* Depositing new subsoil and laying Zoysia sod
* Adjusting sprinklers to assure plant/lawn coverage
* Installing approximately 50’ of French drain to address some water pooling at the lowest point in our backyard
Chad and Greg were very involved throughout the project. Jose and his two team members were outstanding workers dedicated to completing all aspects of the project in a professional manner. Good Earth provided excellent consultation, installation, and support throughout the project! We are now the proud owners of a magnificent back yard and look forward to watching it blossom over time.
Our experience with Cody Culpepper and The Good Earth Landscaping crew was excellent. They responded to us quickly. Cody worked with us on our plan so that we would stay within our budget. Good Earth executed the work ahead of schedule. Cody was always quick to respond to us and answer all of our questions.
We had a wonderful experience working with Good Earth on our front garden bed. We live on a steep slope and we would lose dirt and mulch during each rain, causing our plants wither and eventually die. We wanted someone to build up the front bed and plant plants that were low maintenance, but also provide greenery and seasonal interest. Cody listened intently and came up with a great plan for the stone surround (matched our home perfectly!), and a nice array of plants for a beautiful landscape. The crew was friendly and efficient, completing the work very rapidly. We now have a gorgeous front flower bed blooming with color and it has really added some nice curb appeal to our home. Thanks, Good Earth!
I had a wonderful experience with Chad and Good Earth! My front beds had not been updated in 17 years, since my home was built. Chad is very knowledgeable and designed a new layout and plan for the front beds. The new layout updates the look of my home. The plants are much better suited to the house and are such a great upgrade from the ‘builders grade’ installation. The staff at Good Earth are professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend their service.
My wife and I purchased a new home approx 4yrs ago in the Chenal area. We were very pleased with the home itself and the large corner lot, but our property was sloped and we noticed early on that we received a lot of water whenever it rained. When a downpour came, a rush of water would flow across our driveway in front, and the same would happen in the backyard. I would quite frequently have to wait 4-7 days to mow the yard due to the very wet soil. Additionally, we loved the multi-level flower beds in front, but we hated the choice of plants and shrubs installed. At the 3yr mark we called Good Earth and were connected with Chad Oppenhuizen. Chad came and did a very thorough s job inspecting the slope in the backyard as well as in front next to the driveway. To address the large amount of water, the plan included having a concrete curb installed to divert the uphill water into the backyard. For the backyard, the plan was to build a large creek bed that would span the length of the backyard and down to the street. He then studied the amount of sun that would hit any plants in the flower bed that would be created around the creek bed, and he did the same for the flower beds in front. This was a very large project that I assumed would take weeks, but it took less than two. Chad, David the foreman, and his crew did a VERY thorough job during each stage. While cutting out the sod in back, they noticed that some additional water was draining into the back that they could not see before the grass was removed, so they made a quick adjustment to the creek bed and added an extra channel that would drain into the main creek bed in the original design. Chad also chose some amazing looking shrubs, trees, and perennials that exceeded our expectations. My wife and I only told Chad we wanted a Redbud and Cherry trees to create some privacy in back, and we let Chad use his imagination and experience to do the rest. Not only did the project exceed expectations, but the final total for the project was ONLY $300 more than the original estimate. And this was due to some bad sprinkler motors that needed to be replaced plus the small addition to the creek.
My wife and I can tell you that if you have a landscaping project for your home, DO NOT BOTHER CALLING ANYONE THAN GOOD EARTH! Their reputation is well-deserved, and they guarantee their work. I don’t know of any other landscaping company that will return more than once after the job is complete just to check all the plants and make sure that each one is doing well. If something should happen over the next year, they will replace it. My wife and I urge you to give the people of Good Earth a call. We knew they carried the largest variety of plants, trees, and shrubs in Little Rock, but they keep their word and their work is unmatched. When it comes to design creativity, drainage, choosing the right plants, and creating added beauty to your property, make one phone call and one phone call only. CALL GOOD EARTH!
To Chad, David, and the incredible crew, my wife and I can’t thank you enough, and you have earned our business for life!
What a great experience! Everyone that worked on my project was professional and my project turned out perfectly. We love our bubbling boulder. We are now the envy of the neighborhood.
I can’t describe how impressed I am with the design and installation team at Good Earth! They took a steep and bare mountainside with a house stuck on it and turned it into an oasis. They used boulders, bushes, flowers and trees to accent the best features of the house and create a natural landscape that looks as though it had been there all along. The talented team was not only professional but friendly. We could trust them around our children and pets. They went above and beyond throughout the process and the outcome was extraordinary. Good Earth transformed our property into a work of art and we couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you all!
