“ an exceptional team of experienced landscape professionals ”
Originally founded as BJ Landscape Maintenance in 1985 by Brent and Pam Jeffries, the company has evolved to become a leading full-service landscaping company in the greater Phoenix area. The company is licensed, bonded, and insured providing landscape services to high-profile homeowner associations, commercial and residential properties, and works with management companies, general contractors, and individual homeowners. When the original owners relocated to South Carolina in 2014, Brandon Ridenour and Brian Urlacher purchased the company and continue to operate the business with the same attention to detail and personalized service that remains the core philosophy of the business. The company has evolved over the years to become more than just a landscape maintenance organization and therefore elected to change its trade name to TerraVerde Landscape Solutions in 2015 to reflect this increased scope and range of services offered. The company continues to maintain its affiliations with the Arizona Landscape Contractors Association (ALCA), Arizona Association of Community Managers (AACM), and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). With an exceptional team of experienced landscape professionals including irrigation techs, tree techs, landscape maintenance techs, and pesticide techs, TerraVerde Landscape Solutions looks forward to serving all your exterior beautification needs.
