With over 50 years of landscaping experience between owner Steve Crossett and foreman Samuel Ferrer, True Roots has the experience to guide your project from the design phase through execution. And with roots that run deep and true in southern Utah, Crosset and his team have the knowledge to ensure your landscape will flourish in the hot and dry climate in this corner of the desert southwest.
The plants they suggest for your project will thrive in the conditions and temperatures found at your home for decades to come. Crossett and his team will also amend your soil, adjust drainage, and properly place irrigation systems to create the optimal conditions for each plant in your new yard. Whether you live in the hotter climate of Mesquite or in the higher and cooler elevations of Cental or Diamond Valley north of St. Geoge, True Roots will guide you towards the right plants for your growing region.
Crossett chose the name True Roots for his company because of a deep love for the area. After moving to southern Utah over a decade ago, Crosset got the feeling that this area was his home. “I’m not a native but I chose this as my home. I feel like I had a real calling to be in St. George. I dreamed about it before I moved here and it’s ingrained in my soul,” Crossett said.
True Roots also describes our hope that you and your family will be able to place true roots at your newly landscaped home. “We don’t just slap in a landscape and head to the next job. We look at each landscape like a piece of artwork,” Crossett said.
“Every home has a personality. Someone’s going to live there, kids are going to grow up and they’re going to remember that place. I want them to always remember where they grew up. And that they played as kids in that beautiful backyard.”
