Scratching The Earth Since 2002

Scratching the Earth Landscaping has been serving the four corners since 2002. In this time, we have been creating outdoor living spaces to bring family and friends together.

We work closely with our clients to ensure that they are a part of the design and estimating process, so the client is clear on what they are paying for.

If you have a busy life, you may want a Xeric landscape, with low watering and low maintenance. On the other hand, if you find you have a bit of a green thumb and love to play in the dirt, you may opt for a lusher landscape. If you love to entertain, we can discuss an outdoor kitchen, fire pit or water feature.

We can conceptualize and build fun filled and healthful outdoor designs for children — with play areas, zip lines, climbing boulders, swing sets and play caves.

Whatever your style, we believe we can accommodate!

"Jeff, It is a pleasure to give you a letter of recommendation on the work you have done for us. I would tell anyone who asks our completely and enthusiastic satisfaction with work that your company did for us at our home. You should feel free to refer anyone that would like to talk to either Cindi or me about the work you did for us. We could not be more pleased. We wish you and your family success in your new adventures. Please feel free to take photos of our landscaping and use them to promote your abilities. We are sad to have you leave as it will limit our association. We are happy that you are moving forward with your family. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to give you a recommendation. Please feel free to indicate the cost of the work you did for us. In my business, I work with contract services continually. I wish all of my experiences were approached in such a pleasing and rewarding manner we experienced with contracting you to do our landscaping."


"Dear Jeff, Many thanks and with great appreciation for your good, creative work designing our new drive and adjacent landscaping. The finished product is really very wonderful and it has accomplished all I hoped it would when we finally got around to replacing a very tired driveway. I will gladly recommend you to any who wonder who did the work! Again, many thanks for your good and creative work."


"Jeff, We appreciate you and all your hard work! We just completed construction on our home, and we had no idea what to do in regards to landscape – we were completely overwhelmed. Jeff with Scratching the Earth Landscaping was highly recommended to us form multiple parties and there is no doubt why. Jeff is great to work with! Very professional, efficient, and amazing at his craft! I love pulling up to our house now; we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. If you want someone who can take your project from start to finish, Jeff is your guy. We highly recommend Scratching the Earth!"

"To Whom It May Concern, Here are the reasons I would gladly choose Jeff Larramendy for my next landscaping job: “Heck yeah!” This is what he says, no matter what you ask him to do. He is extremely positive and great to work with. He looks out for your interests. He made numerous suggestions on how to cut costs without cutting quality, even though those costs were going to him. He doesn’t just get it, he “gits’ it!” Done that is. They don’t work any harder. Economy and hustle aside, it is really about the end product. He has a discerning eye, and a talent for tasteful. He takes a general landscape plan and adds the little features that make it pop. Use him. You won’t be sorry!"
