About Fontaine Landscaping—from Root to Bloom!

Friendly, informal, professional, supportive, responsive, honest and personal. Our employees work hard to listen, learn and respond to your requirements.

Mission:
Fontaine Landscaping is a full-service landscaping firm that believes in environmental improvement through professional landscape practices. Our root values form a strong foundation on which the company can build future growth, customer retention, and environmental improvement.  We look forward to a sunny future together with our loyal customers.

History:
Fontaine Landscaping’s seed was first planted in 1996 when founders Kevin and Dana Fontaine--the perfect hybrid of landscaping & sales experience (Kevin) and bookkeeping & accounting (Dana)—opened for business.  The couple began with a simple philosophy: to provide quality landscaping services with excellent customer service and flexibility.  This philosophy, rooted in the idea that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions in the landscaping business, has kept Fontaine Landscaping growing. 

Qualifications:  
Fontaine staff are routinely trained in the latest regulations, landscape practices, equipment, and safety programs.  Some of our certifications include:

Green Practices:
Fontaine cares for the environment and actively seeks to incorporate eco-friendly practices whenever available and possible.  We recycle grass clippings and yard waste. Other ways:

  • In 2004, Fontaine introduced small fuel efficient cars into our fleet which achieve atleast 30 mpg.
  • We have GPS monitoring systems in our trucks to reduce and eliminate wasted fuel from excessive idling and/or speeding and to develop efficient routes.
  • We recycle scrap metal and waste oil we generate from our operations.
  • We work to minimize the waste of water used in the landscapes and look for ways to use water in smarter ways.
  • We program irrigation systems to ensure proper run times as the weather dictates and we make repairs as required to minimize waste and check for leaks and runoff.
  • We use local reclaimed water facilities for the majority of our hand watering of landscapes; as required throughout the year for both maintenance and installation operations.

 

At Fontaine, we love what we do and it grows!
