About Us


Founded 26 years ago by owner Jeff Stroupe; Landscapes by Terra has grown to a million-dollar design/build landscape firm by focusing on craftsmanship, attention to detail, and loyalty to our clients.  The values that have come to define Landscapes by Terra, has allowed the company to grow to 11 Installation crews and 2 estate maintenance crews.  While Jeff’s many other responsibilities now prevent him from getting to meet as many new clients as he would like, he still visits project sites on a regular basis and still takes care of some of the same clients he started with in 1992.    




Every project, small or large, has a unique set of challenges and with 26 years in the landscaping industry we have seen many of them.  Most of our crew leaders started as laborers with our company, the longest has been with the company 23 years, and several have been with Landscapes by Terra over 10 years.  Our management and design staff have a wide range of formal education and green industry experience; from Landscape Architects, to horticulture degrees and internships with award winning British garden designers.  Our staff has a wealth of experience building landscapes to improve our client’s homes, businesses and quality of life.  We share those experiences in weekly meetings and while discussing your project.     Credentials include: ICPI, ISA, ONLA, and Angie’s List Super Service Award Winner 17 Times.  This year Landscapes by Terra was awarded a Merit Award for Excellence in design and construction for a project in Jerome Village.




Landscapes by Terra has offered an industry leading warranty on our craftsmanship for over 10 years now, and we are happy to honor it on the rare occasion that a client asks us to correct something.   We take pride in our craftsmanship and attention to detail, thus establishing our enduring presence in the green industry and the ability to stand behind a long-term warranty- a statement that many companies cannot make.
