• Where did you receive your landscape training?

Lance: I have many years of "on the job training". Three generations of my family lived and worked on the lush 15 acre Millets Gardens, at the south end of Lake Whatcom. When I was 13 years old I started my own yard maintenance business. Even at an early age my passion for fresh air, hard work and cultivating the earth was evident. My 40+ years of experience have taught me the basics of form, balance, foundation of color, and variety of texture. I believe that a landscaper either has the gift, or "eye," for artistic landscapes, or they don't. The enthusiasm, desire, and ability to create true beauty in an outdoor living environment comes from the heart. We believe Artland Inc. will turn your landscaping project into a work of art.

• What is your favorite part of a landscape project?

Lance: The most fulfilling aspect of my job, is in gaining a satisfied, and happy homeowner at the completion of a project. It is of the utmost importance to us, that our clients receive ongoing enjoyment of their new yard for many years after the completion of the job. Many of our clients have been with us for several years with ongoing services such as new projects, weekly maintenance, and seasonal or yearly yard “clean-ups.” It is great to be able to follow the process of maturity of what we have started, and share in our clients satisfaction! Another close favorite is when a client brings our crew a cold beverage on a hot day!
