Blue Ribbon Landscape & Maintenance, Inc. was formed in 1999 in Nampa, Idaho as a full-service landscape maintenance company for residential and commercial clients. Blue Ribbon now serves more than 250 residential and commercial customers across the Treasure Valley.

Services include weekly lawn care services, landscape maintenance services, tree and shrub care, aeration and fertilizer application, personal gardening, irrigation maintenance, landscape design & construction, and more (see our Services)

Our maintenance programs are geared toward complete landscape management versus a “mow-and-go” approach. Our plant healthcare program is one of the best in the valley and includes organic soil-enhancing products. We emphasize water management, and encourage you to consider our Evapo-Transpiration system (download) – a sprinkling/water usage program that can cut water use by 30%.

Blue Ribbon’s landscape construction projects focus on natural design elements, tailored to client preferences. Projects include pavers (patios, walkways, etc), brick and rock retaining walls, water features, irrigation design and installation, rock gardens, large scale plantings, landscape lighting and outdoor living spaces.

We’re intently focused on customer value: always targeting the lowest price while using state-of-the-art equipment and employing skilled and certified technicians to deliver unmatched quality workmanship. Hence our motto: “The relentless pursuit of perfection.”
