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. Consultation may be available everywhere between Medford and Crescent City. 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 local in Oregon. For tree care please review Pruning Services. Homeowners also call for advice: landscape, design, tree and drainage consultations which average 1 hour.
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 in south Medford to share about landscape design, pruning and plant selection. The first step was a 4000 lb. bubbling moss rock water feature, and birds love it too. Followed by 50 species of flowers, shrubs, edibles and trees. It's a 24 hr. landscape design with enough lighting to enjoy day & night. This should be ready for a garden tour early 2018. A sample of plant color is shown in images below.
