Terra Landscape and Design
7 Reviews
A family-run business for more than 35 years, Terra Landscape and Design is dedicated to quality residential and commercial landscaping with an emphasis on ethical, high-quality work.

The roots of Terra Landscape and Design began in 1975 when four brothers needed money to take out girls in high school. Mike, Ron, Kevin and Russell started the Allan Brothers Four Seasons, a raggedy lawn-maintenance business with the motto, “You grow it, we mow it.” It wasn’t a business, it was a family—and bolstered by friends and Mike's good looks, it soon grew into a self-sustainable landscaping company with 2 full crews of friends and a few real employees.

There were many adventures over the years. Some of the brothers went to college, some of them didn’t go to college—and they all got married to good wives who one-by-one convinced three of them to get out of the landscaping business. The remaining brother, Russell Allan, changed the name of the business to Terra Landscape and Design, after his wife, so she wouldn’t try to nudge him to follow suit. He would go on to pass his love of landscaping to his son Jared who later joined him in the family business.
