Welcome to M. D Vaden. I provide landscaping & pruning in Oregon, surrounding Medford, Jacksonville, Central Point and Ashland. Repeat pruning customers from Beaverton and Portland westside suburbs can inquire about my travel plans. Services include skilled pruning, sod lawn, tree and shrub planting, drainage and fruit trees. Over 35 years experience is applied to each service. A favorite is Japanese Maple pruning. Please take a moment to review the background and testimonials.
My landscape work helped people all over the west coast from Humboldt to Longview, but most landscape work is in Oregon. For tree care, review Pruning Services. Homeowners also call for advice: landscape, design, tree and drainage consultations which average 1 hour. Consultation is available around the Rogue Valley.
My services extend beyond typical residential landscaping. Two specialized services are tree measuring and photography which emerged from experience in Northern California, measuring tallest coast redwoods. Some of the work was research related. That led to photography and fine art prints in Crescent City galleries, plus portraiture too.
I entered the horticulture profession 1980 with golf courses, followed by university campus work, and afterward hundreds of residential landscapes. On another note, the 2nd menu below leads to over 200 pages of landscaping tips and more. This site's "living room" in the background has extensive Coast Redwood information, one of the best online.
In 2017 we planted a new display landscape garden near south Medford to share ideas for landscape design, pruning and plant selection. Step one was the 4000 lb. moss rock water feature that attracts hummingbirds. Followed by 60 different flowers, shrubs, edibles and trees. With a touch of light, this transformed into a 24 hr. landscape to enjoy night or day. The design covers sight, scent, touch, sound and taste, for all five senses. This will be ready for a garden tour by 2018. A sample of plant color is shown in the images below. Select each photo to open and close.
