About Calvin Craig Landscaping

We begin with our in-house design team and carry projects through to completion with a long-tenured and highly experienced team. We perform all hardscapes, metal work, irrigation, and drainage components in-house – saving our clients on outsourced costs and the vagaries of inconsistent quality. Irrigation can be fully automated and controlled by app on your smartphone.
