Landscaping – About Phil Sarros

Designing Dreams and Building Memories
Sarros Landscaping is a family run business operated by Company President, Phil Sarros. We specialize in residential landscape design and construction. Our “style” is to create functional, organic and flowing gardens and surfaces with curved lines, easy maintenance and free-form stone and wooden structures. Our design philosophy is to build elegance, color and warmth into every design and complement the architecture of the home and neighborhood. You won’t need a master gardener once your project is complete. A Sarros Landscaping design is full of life and offers a pleasant retreat for the entire family.
