Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania. It is the sixth most populous city, and the fifth largest metropolitan area by population in the United States. According to the Wikipedia, it is also the 49th
most populous city in the world. Philadelphia has its fair share of homes and buildings with big lawns that need professional maintenance. With the arrival of summer, home and business owners are paying more attention to the necessity of lawn care. However, as an old city dictated by its population, Philadelphia had introduced row houses in the 1800s. In fact, in the past row houses built elsewhere in the United States were known as “Philadelphia rows”. Such setting of the city has resulted in many neighborhoods with sidewalks stretching over miles at a time. The major hindrance to the activity of the city results from snowfall which is normal due to its location in the Northeast region of the country. As a result, the city of Philadelphia requires year-long landscape maintenance. Whether you are a home or business owner in Philadelphia, it is important for you to maintain a listing of professional landscaping companies with specific needs in mind. Not all companies offer all services. At the same time, not every company specializes in all fields and / or have the resources to meet your needs. Here, I will provide you with the list of a few companies based on the information that I have compiled after thorough research.
Landscaping company in Philadelphia : #1 : Cenova, Inc.
Cenova was formed through the merger between Four Seasons Landscaping & Tree Service Inc., Kenilworth Management Corporation and Turf Plus Inc. The combined group brings over 100 years’ industry experience in snow management, and 65 years in Landscaping – servicing nearly 450 commercial sites.
Cenova Inc. offers individual services, or complete four season programs including Snow Plowing and Removal, Ice Management, Landscape Design, Irrigation Management and complete exterior facility maintenance. However, though this company offers landscaping, its main stronghold is in the snow & ice solutions.

According to my evaluation, this company can best suit the needs of businesses or organizations that are looking at big scale maintenance.

Landscaping company in Philadelphia : #3 : Superior Landscaping Company
This is another company that handles all sorts of landscaping and snow issues and has both individuals and organizations among its customer base. However, if you check the information that I could gather, compared to its high sales volume, the number of employees at any given time is too low. Therefore, I would assume you have to have a contract in place to get immediate attention. For any emergency situation, the wait period might be longer than anticipated.

Landscaping company in Philadelphia : #5 : Do It All Landscape
This is one of the low end group of landscaping companies that I looked up. The purpose was to see if I could offer you with the information for individuals that are on strict budget. As you can see, this company’s resources seem to be pretty thin. How efficiently can the company work with only 2 employees on board ? My guess is that you will be waiting for eternity for them to respond to an emergency. Looking for better deals do not always pay off and this might be the perfect example of that.
