About ArtisTree

We Bring You Our A-Game. Always.

Be ready. The ArtisTree team gets pretty excited about everything — from the way a Passiflora quadrangularis transforms a pergola into a jeweled canopy to a rainforest-styled estate brimming with bromeliads and elaborate water features. And that’s just our design side. What rocks our maintenance team is seeing a lawn so tight you could bounce a coin off it. Beds are edged. Shrubs look just right. The entire landscape looks nice and healthy. Our companywide passion for what we do attracts the best-skilled teams in the area because good people want to work for a good company. And it shows. ArtisTree never wavers from doing the right thing or giving you our best.

Our Mission

At ArtisTree our mission is to be the benchmark in landscape maintenance and design by earning the satisfaction of our customers and the pride of our employees.

Founded in 1990, ArtisTree Landscape Maintenance & Design specializes in planned community/commercial maintenance and landscape design/installation. Our services include community maintenance, pest control, irrigation, tree service, landscape design and installation, hardscape installation and landscape lighting. ArtisTree is a privately held, nationally ranked company headquartered in Venice, FL, serving Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte counties. While we have more employees than any other local, non-franchised landscape company in Southwest Florida, we’ve always defined ourselves by our values, not our size. That’s why hiring the right people is the single most important job we do. We bring you talented specialists who are degreed, accredited and just plain nice to work with.
