With over 40 years of combined experience, Peake Urban Landscapes started six years ago with the vision of providing a full-service company along with professionally designed and constructed outdoor living spaces. They view each project as an extension of the client’s house and consider it to be an outdoor living room where clients can enjoy their yard. They limit the amount of projects per year so they can deliver quality landscapes and work with clients more closely from the design phase right through to the construction phase.
