Owner Kraig Leatherman spent 32 very successful years in the demanding insurance and financial services industry where development, leadership and service were essential. After several successive life changing events, he returned to his childhood passion to work outdoors and enhance the landscape. Here he has varied experiences since age six. Additionally, his family heritage of professional landscaping dates back over 50 years.
Earthkare became reputable quickly. We are customer focused. As requests for larger and more involved projects grew, Earthkare created alliances utilizing equipment and capital to meet the demand. Kraig serves as ambassador for the customer and the on-site project leader to meet the customer expectations to finish the job on time and within budget.
Additionally we serve all cutomers and all jobs large and small. We also operate as organically as possible. That is, we minimize the use of chemicals as much as possible; we employ native design; we use all natural organic mulches-like pine fines and oak bark mulch; where possible use newspaper to prevent weeds and recycle as much on the property as possible to avoid trips to the landfill. Proper water management on the Landscape is a specialty.

and hold the highest rating with the BBB. We are a member of home services connection, and we have no complaints at the Maryland Home Improvement Commission. We have positive customer feedback on our Testimonials page.
