Drake's Landscaping

At Drake’s Landscaping, our philosophy is simple. Do the job right the first time. Don’t cut corners. Pay close attention to detail. Treat our customers and their property with respect.

If you have a vision for what your yard could become, we’ll help you fulfill it. Aren’t sure of your yard’s potential? We’ll create a custom design that makes it the envy of the neighborhood.

We start by discussing your needs, ideas and budget. From there, we design your ideal yard—complete with a patio, walkway, driveway, lighting, landscaping and more. We won’t start planting until the soil is properly prepared with organic nutrients. This way, your plants won’t just survive…they’ll thrive! Plus, we promise to keep your entire yard clean and undamaged. And you can rest assured knowing that all of our construction techniques meet or exceed Ohio Standardized Construction Specifications.

We serve the following areas in and around Columbus, Ohio: Dublin, Powell, Hilliard, Lewis Center, New Albany, Upper Arlington, Worthington and more. Contact us to make your vision for your yard into a reality!
