“I love working with local community members to design and build their dream yards,” says Brad Crandall, owner of South Valley Landscaping LLC. “It's amazing to see the transformation that can take place from a simple dirt yard to a remarkable landscaping remodel.”

Brad settled in the area a few years ago after receiving his bachelor’s in Idaho and his MBA from Gonzaga University in Washington.  

“I have family here and had visited many times before moving to southern Utah. I was always drawn to this community, especially with my great love for the outdoors—and the weather isn’t bad, either.”

Brad believes his degrees have been beneficial in helping him understand finances and how a business should be run to benefit his employees and his customers.   

With more than 50 years of combined experience, South Valley Landscaping constantly and consistently aims to perfect its services to meet client needs—to help homeowners realize their vision of an attractive landscape.

“It’s always a collaborative effort between our customers and our employees,” says Brad. “When we work with customers, we purposefully listen to their needs and wants.”

His team is happy to provide a free initial design and estimate for any service South Valley Landscaping provides, such as formal landscaping, desert landscaping, walkway and path installation, stone surrounds, in-ground spa installation, artificial grass installation, water feature installation and sprinkler systems.

In addition, Brad says his company specializes in outdoor kitchens—which are so popular now—as well as fire pits, putting greens and landscape lighting.

“Once customers have approved their preferred designs, we accompany them to the nursery to choose the rocks and plants that will create their landscape,” adds Brad. His company employs a professional arborist to help select ornamental trees and shrubs.  

South Valley Landscaping provides exceptional landscaping design and installation in St. George, Washington and the surrounding Utah and Nevada communities.
