About Us

Owned locally by lifelong resident Michael Pickel.

Pickel Landscape Group’s goal is not only to be a resource to its community through education and support but also to design and maintain outdoor spaces for the residents of Southern Chester County and Northern Delaware. We have been praised by past clients for our ability to design to their needs and present ideas that are sustainable.

Pickel Landscape Group was created to address the outdoor needs of our local community. We continue to provide excellent customer service with 100% client retention year after year. Our dedicated office staff is prompt to answer questions while our field staff understands the expectations of our clients. Clients are appreciated and treated with respect which in turn rewards our hard work with referrals and growth!

Mike’s philosophy of giving the client value and honesty has gone a long way and has also created a company culture for team members to grow. From a spring cleanup and mulch to design and installation we appreciate any opportunity to propose
