We strive to enrich the surrounding natural environment and foster stewardship for sustaining our natural resources.

With large amounts of pedestrian traffic flowing continually through Washington, the addition of seasonal flowers placed at buildings adds welcoming color around sidewalks and entrances.
Growers are constantly coming up with new varieties of seasonal flowers and bulbs. Each season can bring a new selection of colors and textures that can be planted in large urns and pots in and around elaborate fountains and outdoor seating areas. The combinations and colors are endless.
We create sweeping arrangements that keep the grounds visually interesting and appealing to all passing traffic.
Our goal is to create a relaxed atmosphere in highly mobile urban areas, while keeping plantings consistantly fresh throughout the seasons.
Snow plowing and removal is offered only to our Governmental, Institutional and Commercial clients. These are annual contracts and additions to existing Grounds Maintenance contracts.
Our fleet of crews and trucks will be available to service your designated areas in a timely manner to clear and remove accumulated snow pack down to the pavement. We clear parking lots, ramps to parking garages, entrances and exits to parking facilities, sidewalks and any areas where foot and vehicle traffic are located. We also provide the snow melt agents to clear slick areas for pedestrian traffic and areas where water may accumulate and refreeze after plowing.
Depending on Mother Nature’s seasonal temperament, our contracts have cost adjustments for ice storms, snow pack in excess of thirteen inches, number of outright storms and other variables.
Be assured that John Shorb Landscaping will keep your properties clean and safe.
