We can turn your dreams into reality. Those are big words but what does that process look like? Hear more about the Good Earth Great Experience through the words of our clients.

I have been going to Good Earth for some years. My property is fairly large and spread out and they have consistently provided healthy and beautiful plants for my summer and fall decorating. We recently used Good Earth for a Landscaping Project for our property entrance. It turned out gorgeous and several neighbors have already inquired as to who did it. Cody was a very nice person to work with and it went seamless. They came in did their job and left my property beautiful. I will continue to use Good Earth for all my landscaping needs. The people are friendly and you can tell they like to plant too.

Happy Homeowner

Chad at Good Earth was assigned our project. We gave him an idea of what we wanted and the problems with our yard. Specifically, lots of sun and tree roots. He came up with a plan which was acceptable both in scope and price. His guys did a great job and Chad stayed with the project from start to finish. Others in our neighborhood had used Good Earth and were very satisfied as we are. Would recommend Chad.

Murray Hunt

Chad and his team were awesome to work with. Chad took me step-by-step through the process, even spending a morning at the nursery walking around and showing me exactly the types of plants that would work best for my front yard. And when there was some last minute tweaking towards completion, it was done the very next day. The finished product is beyond what I envisioned. Thanks Good Earth!

Fran Jansen Webb

Cody did a wonderful job with developing a landscape plan for our front yard. He had great ideas and frequently worked with towards the vision we had. Because our yard has fairly steep slope, and a lot lot of shade with mature trees that we wanted to preserve, Cody came up with an excellent design despite the challenges. The installation crew, led by David, also did an excellent job with the retaining walls made out of natural stone, and stone walkways that produced a unique look and feel. Thank you men for all the hard work done on some very hot days! The Good Earth has created a wonderful and much needed refreshed curb appeal for our home and we are thankful for their expertise. We recommend anyone to The Good Earth. Thank you, Terry & Gina Brown

Terry & Gina Brown

We recently purchased a new home, and while we loved the home, the landscaping left something to be desired. We worked with Cody to create a plan for our front and back yard, and the experience could not have been better. We widened our front beds to fit the scale of our home, added new stone edging and replaced all of the plantings. Cody and his team were helpful, professional, responsive and made sure that our yard was in perfect order when the project was complete. We could not be more pleased with our new landscaping and highly recommend The Good Earth.

The Covingtons

We had such a wonderful experience working with Cody and the rest of the team at The Good Earth. They were quick and efficient and managed to come in under budget, even with some unexpected costs due to previously unknown sprinkler issues. We live on a rather busy street corner and we cannot count the number of people we see walking by and admiring the work. We’ve had numerous people tell us how great everything looks and we agree!

Jessica Bartnik

Cody at Good Earth worked with us through several design iterations to arrive at a great design which was executed on time. His attention during the project was good. The crew was courteous and worked diligently to finish on time and readily accepted small changes made during the installation. We are very happy with the result.

Paula Porbeck

Leave all your landscape worries with Good Earth’s landscape crew. They recently completed a major project for us that had significant terrain and design challenges. Not only did Zak, David and their crew knock it out of the park, they did it all within our original landscape budget. I also want to mention how clean they left our job site each day making sure our property was clean and still safe for our family. They are true professionals and we could not be any happier with our investment.

Gaston Family

Thanks to Zak and his team from The Good Earth, we finally have the pool area we had hoped for.
Their professionalism and attention to detail made this a very pleasurable experience.

Jackson Carpenter

The Good Earth Garden team was fantastic to work with. With Chad and Greg’s design expertise, they listened to my vision and designed a beautiful landscape for my home. From the water features, to the clay pots and plant species chosen, I could have not asked for a more lovely outcome. I look forward to working with the talented team at the Good Earth Garden in the future.

V. Vandever

Chad and his team did great work. This is our second landscaping project with The Good Earth, front yard first and now backyard, and we have been very pleased each time.


My house had old shrubbery that was hiding the house. I wanted my front lawn to have more grass and lower shrubs so you could see the architecture of the house. Chad gave me a plan showing what could be done and after they removed a dozen old shrubs. Good Earth planted beautiful new smaller plants that compliment the house. They also filled in some beds with sod to give a fresher look. We have gotten favorable comments from neighbors and I am very pleased with the project.

Elsie Crosby

I can’t say enough about Zak and Good Earth.  They have done my yard several times.  They are the best… Zak is so good with design and his crew is so good about getting it all done.  I’m always so happy with everything they do.  Can’t wait til Spring!

Dena Benafield

After working with Cody on some ideas I had for a very slanted backyard that washed out regularly to the fence, he started the wheels rolling. We agreed on the estimate, talked about plants that would do well in my partially shaded, partially sun baked yard, talked about stone options for the walkway. Based on those decisions, we had to move some sprinklers and a drain off of one of the gutters. Everything was handled with his team perfectly. His team showed up right on time every morning and worked until late afternoon. He definitely delivered what I asked for and we even extended the original design to the fence. It turned out gorgeous and all my neighbors asked to see what Good Earth did. They agreed it was really changed the look of the backyard- now a pleasant oasis to enjoy. Cody even came back days after it was finished to make sure that nothing washed out or needed tweaking after a good rain. Now that is above and beyond what I expected! I was more than pleased with the entire experience and would recommend Good Earth for your landscape dream.

CK Bettis

I love my new backyard. 20 Years ago Zak Grothe from Good Earth landscaped my new yard. It was awesome. 20 years later it needed a re-do. It was good for a long time but needed updating. I called Zak to see if he would like to do it again. Zak and the guys from Good Earth came out and I asked them to do whatever they thought would make it look awesome again. It is fabulous!!! We will re-do the front in early spring. We live on the PV golf course and I am so proud for all the golfers and visitors to see my backyard. Thank you Good Earth and Zak.

Carolyn Lay

I called the Good Earth to replace the aging plants in a raised bed in my front yard and I was very pleased with the service I received. Cody was great, he listened to my requests and made excellent recommendations. He showed up with a skilled crew and was in and out with very little disruption. He left everything clean and best of all the invoice was well under the original quote.

Sherry Shinn

My wife and I recently built a house which needed typical landscaping with sod and some trees but we also had more challenging features in that we built on a hill, have large planters in the front and sides, drainage issues and multiple steps in the back. Working with Chad has been a great experience. The recommendations and ideas that Chad proposed complemented the house and were exactly what Diana and I were expecting from the known reputation of The Good Earth. The Field Crew were very experience and still know how to use a wheelbarrow and shovel. They went above and beyond with details that weren’t even indicated on the drawing. In addition to the standard sod, trees and plants, they turned potential water drainage issues into 2 beautiful dry creek beds down both sides of the lot, installed landscape lighting in the front which included lights on the drive and sidewalks. Step lighting on the stairs in the back not only improves safety it really adds a nice feature the backyard. We would highly recommend using The Good Earth for your next Landscaping project.

Randy and Diana Ragsdale

We were bery pleased with the work you guys did. We liked the plan, the plants, and the service.

Donna K. Warmack

Zak and the team at Good Earth are phenomenal! Professional, reliable, efficient and knowledgeable, they made our landscape job a breeze. We had a few unique challenges and Zak was very creative and budget conscious. We are so pleased with their work, and will definitely be using their expertise again in the future!

Kendall Jones

The Good Earth team is incredible! We have moved three times in our time in Little Rock over the last 20 years. At each home, we have partnered with Zak Grothe and his team to enhance where we live and spend our time. Zak is really creative in his design and how he makes the final product look amazing. He and his team always over-deliver with the work they do. They finds ways to make the designs work and we have always been so pleased with the result. We are thankful and could not be more happy with the Good Earth!

Todd & Patricia Farnsworth

Cody planned all our flowers and designed the layout and Greg supervised. They finished in a timely manner and it was below the estimate! Our yards are so beautiful, people in the neighborhood drive by to see it. Thank you for making our own piece of heaven.

Ms K Tackett

Good Earth provided a complete and detailed estimate after walking the project area and talking through my goals and expectations. The work crew was professional and worked hard to complete the project as expected within the timeframe discussed. The project was completed under budget and met all of my expectations. Once the work crew completed their work, they cleaned up throughly and left no trace. Following the project, Good Earth sent a nice thank you with an assortment of small gifts. The level of follow-up was unexpected.


Good Earth testimonial

Let me start by saying we highly recommend Good Earth Landscaping services! We selected them to completely re-landscape our backyard.

We had removed 8 large Cypress trees and 2 large Maple trees that had covered our yard with extensive root systems. We developed a plan with suggested trees/shrubs/plants and submitted it for their review. Their design architect, Chad Oppenhuizen, met with us on site where we adjusted and finalized the plan. Chad worked up an estimate which we accepted. Work was scheduled for late spring.

A three man team, supervised by Greg, and led by team leader Jose, worked tirelessly and meticulously to implement the plan. Major efforts included:
* Removing extensive root systems
* Preparing planting beds with super soil
* Installing all plant material according to plan
* Installing stone borders between plants and grass areas
* Modifying existing sprinkler lines/heads
* Depositing new subsoil and laying Zoysia sod
* Adjusting sprinklers to assure plant/lawn coverage
* Installing approximately 50’ of French drain to address some water pooling at the lowest point in our backyard

Chad and Greg were very involved throughout the project. Jose and his two team members were outstanding workers dedicated to completing all aspects of the project in a professional manner. Good Earth provided excellent consultation, installation, and support throughout the project! We are now the proud owners of a magnificent back yard and look forward to watching it blossom over time.

Keith and Vicki Stone

Our experience with Cody Culpepper and The Good Earth Landscaping crew was excellent. They responded to us quickly. Cody worked with us on our plan so that we would stay within our budget. Good Earth executed the work ahead of schedule. Cody was always quick to respond to us and answer all of our questions.

John Connell

We had a wonderful experience working with Good Earth on our front garden bed. We live on a steep slope and we would lose dirt and mulch during each rain, causing our plants wither and eventually die. We wanted someone to build up the front bed and plant plants that were low maintenance, but also provide greenery and seasonal interest. Cody listened intently and came up with a great plan for the stone surround (matched our home perfectly!), and a nice array of plants for a beautiful landscape. The crew was friendly and efficient, completing the work very rapidly. We now have a gorgeous front flower bed blooming with color and it has really added some nice curb appeal to our home. Thanks, Good Earth!

Deb S

I had a wonderful experience with Chad and Good Earth! My front beds had not been updated in 17 years, since my home was built. Chad is very knowledgeable and designed a new layout and plan for the front beds. The new layout updates the look of my home. The plants are much better suited to the house and are such a great upgrade from the ‘builders grade’ installation. The staff at Good Earth are professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend their service.

My wife and I purchased a new home approx 4yrs ago in the Chenal area. We were very pleased with the home itself and the large corner lot, but our property was sloped and we noticed early on that we received a lot of water whenever it rained. When a downpour came, a rush of water would flow across our driveway in front, and the same would happen in the backyard. I would quite frequently have to wait 4-7 days to mow the yard due to the very wet soil. Additionally, we loved the multi-level flower beds in front, but we hated the choice of plants and shrubs installed. At the 3yr mark we called Good Earth and were connected with Chad Oppenhuizen. Chad came and did a very thorough s job inspecting the slope in the backyard as well as in front next to the driveway. To address the large amount of water, the plan included having a concrete curb installed to divert the uphill water into the backyard. For the backyard, the plan was to build a large creek bed that would span the length of the backyard and down to the street. He then studied the amount of sun that would hit any plants in the flower bed that would be created around the creek bed, and he did the same for the flower beds in front. This was a very large project that I assumed would take weeks, but it took less than two. Chad, David the foreman, and his crew did a VERY thorough job during each stage. While cutting out the sod in back, they noticed that some additional water was draining into the back that they could not see before the grass was removed, so they made a quick adjustment to the creek bed and added an extra channel that would drain into the main creek bed in the original design. Chad also chose some amazing looking shrubs, trees, and perennials that exceeded our expectations. My wife and I only told Chad we wanted a Redbud and Cherry trees to create some privacy in back, and we let Chad use his imagination and experience to do the rest. Not only did the project exceed expectations, but the final total for the project was ONLY $300 more than the original estimate. And this was due to some bad sprinkler motors that needed to be replaced plus the small addition to the creek.
My wife and I can tell you that if you have a landscaping project for your home, DO NOT BOTHER CALLING ANYONE THAN GOOD EARTH! Their reputation is well-deserved, and they guarantee their work. I don’t know of any other landscaping company that will return more than once after the job is complete just to check all the plants and make sure that each one is doing well. If something should happen over the next year, they will replace it. My wife and I urge you to give the people of Good Earth a call. We knew they carried the largest variety of plants, trees, and shrubs in Little Rock, but they keep their word and their work is unmatched. When it comes to design creativity, drainage, choosing the right plants, and creating added beauty to your property, make one phone call and one phone call only. CALL GOOD EARTH!
To Chad, David, and the incredible crew, my wife and I can’t thank you enough, and you have earned our business for life!

What a great experience! Everyone that worked on my project was professional and my project turned out perfectly. We love our bubbling boulder. We are now the envy of the neighborhood.


I can’t describe how impressed I am with the design and installation team at Good Earth! They took a steep and bare mountainside with a house stuck on it and turned it into an oasis. They used boulders, bushes, flowers and trees to accent the best features of the house and create a natural landscape that looks as though it had been there all along. The talented team was not only professional but friendly. We could trust them around our children and pets. They went above and beyond throughout the process and the outcome was extraordinary. Good Earth transformed our property into a work of art and we couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you all!

Mike Cavallo

My existing landscape was a challenge: rocky, uneven, sloping, shaded. The transformation with planned terracing, plant varieties and suitability for the terrain was amazing. I love everything about the new look, my friends are envious and I thank Zak for his creativity and perseverance in creating an awesome landscape.


The Good Earth is staffed with some very good people! The home we purchased in Little Rock had very bland landscaping coupled with poor drainage that desperately needed to be addressed. Sam and Zak spent a considerable amount of time on the property to observe water flow during rainstorms to get an idea of where the problems were and how best to address the issue. They developed a plan for redirecting water, to present a welcoming approach to the front door and create an overall “WOW” appeal from the street! We have been delighted in their professionalism, creativity and attention to detail that has made our home the showplace of the neighborhood.

Lindy and Jan Bollen

This is at least the second time I had GoodEarth work and rework my front beds. Each time I was very pleased with the results. The designs met my desire, were unique, and grew into maturity well. The crew was professional and efficient.

Barbara Williams

I have worked with Good Earth on a number of commercial landscaping projects over the years and have nothing but good things to say about their work. Good Earth has always produced a quality landscape project, on time, within budget, and provided excellent customer service during and after the projects are complete. I would definitely recommend Good Earth to anyone looking for a quality landscape contractor.

Excellent service! They had a quick and complete response to my request. They treated my job like it was important to them, even though it wasn’t large. Worked within my budget, good communication throughout, and the job was started and completed way ahead of schedule. Friendly, professional, efficient. Definitely would call on The Good Earth again!

I am very pleased with the work Good Earth did for my husband and me, We needed to simplify our yard to make it easier to take of, but still wanted it to be attractive and inviting. Sam Fisher listened very carefully to our wants and needs and worked with us to come up with a plan that met our requirements exactly. This was a small project for Good Earth, but Sam and the foreman, Wayne, treated it if it were the most important one they had. Their crew worked tirelessly and everything was done perfectly. We couldn’t be happier

Rita Perkins

I have worked as a contractor on several large projects with Good Earth as well as on my own home. The team at Good Earth is easy to work with from sprinkler systems to landscaping and lawn maintenance. I highly recommend Good Earth for all aspects of landscaping.

Jason Westerberg

I have worked with Good Earth for over 14 years. Their staff is knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Consistently their work has met my expectations. They use the best quality materials and highly trained workers. In my opinion Good Earth has the best team in Little Rock.

Bill Beringer

After moving in to a new home which badly needed landscaping, we connected with the The Good Earth. The landscape architect, Chad, met with us at our home in order to plan gardens (front and back yards) that would best fit our yard and be what we wanted. Chad was able to make suggestions of plants that would do well in our environment and sent us a plan he had drawn up. Once the work began, Chad was at our home for quite awhile to help ensure things went as planned. The workers at our home couldn’t have been more polite. We were also provided with care instructions for the various plants. We are very pleased with how the gardens look and have received many compliments from neighbors!

Gary & Gretchen Malkowsky

I have been doing business with Good Earth for over 20 years and have certainly enjoyed working with them whether it’s getting flowers and landscaping at my house or on some of our commercial real estate shopping center or offices about the Little Rock area. They have always been very friendly and accommodating to me and our family for the needs we may have. Not only have they served our needs well but they have also supplied us with top notch service and at a fair price. I would certainly recommend them to anyone that is looking for landscape services in central Arkansas.

John Rees

The Good Earth team arrived as scheduled fully equipped to complete the work. They were at work several hours and left with the site clean and looking MUCH better!

What a difference! Our house now finally feels like home. Neighbors we have never met before now stop to tell us how much better our home looks after our landscape work by Good Earth. Came in within budget despite us making some last minute tweaks. Much thanks to Chad and the Good Earth team for their transformative work!

David Black

Dear friends,

The “goodie” box was a real surprise and my immediate thought was ONLY The Good Earth! It is incredible to think of the scope of your business and the detail you devote to exceptional customer service! You all truly exceed expectations in everything that you do and it’s a great privilege to have the opportunity to do business with each of you. Bill’s efforts on our backyard lighting project, and Zak and his men’s work on our side yard transformation were both amazing experiences yielding top notch results. Thank you to each one for your efforts, commitment and patience! You have definitely created a special oasis for us! Also, thank you for being my “Good Earth Family”!

Many, many thanks,

Kathy Thomas

I particularly valued the collaborative partnership in the design and implementation of my landscaping project. Also I appreciated the professionalism of all involved. Very positive experience.

Anna Williams

Zak and his crew have done amazing work. After giving him an idea of what we wanted, we left it up to him to develop the best way to meet our objectives. To say he “exceeded our expectations” is an understatement. We could not be happier with the quality/beauty of work and the vision he displayed in considering not just the initial “Pow!” factor, but how we would live on the property in the long term. We highly recommend Zak and The Good Earth and crew.

We needed landscaping at our new house in west Little Rock. We contacted Good Earth and met with Chad and Sam. They listened to what we wanted and gave valuable suggestions to improve the aesthetics of our yard. The construction crew supervised by Greg were great and did an outstanding job. We have received a ton of compliments about our new landscaping. We would highly recommend.

Marc and Mary

We had an unusual need and was hoping for an attractive fix; i.e., something functional and an unique look. We were very pleased to work with Chad as he quickly understood the situation and was agreeable to brainstorm/discuss potential options. We were given an accurate estimate of the cost. The wait time until the project could be started was reasonable. The landscape team worked diligently to prepare the spot and get the stones laid perfectly. They cleaned up the area everyday before leaving. The end result was just what we needed and enhanced the existing patio. We had a few minor requests to improve the landscape in another area and Chad’s suggestions were just what were needed. We are glad we used Good Earth’s landscape service!

I had a difficult steep sloping back yard to tackle when building our new home. We wanted a low maintenance meandering path with shrubs that could grow naturally and give color at different times. Zak and his team took my vision and made it a beautiful reality, however, much more beautiful than I had imagined. From the rocks and boulders placed in the yard that look like they have been there forever to the large stone steps that make a path, to the placement of shrubs it is perfect! They listened to your ideas well, they thought through every challenge from water drainage to ease of walking the path, to having color throughout the year, and they excelled in all areas. I couldn’t be more pleased and would highly recommend Zak and his team. Oh, the front yard looks great too!

L Bunch

We were extremely pleased with the landscaping recently completed at our home by Good Earth Landscaping. Chad and his team did an excellent job of creating and completing a plan that fit our needs and budget. We have had a drainage issue for years and they went above and beyond to create a beautiful landscape that also controls the flow of water. Chad’s selection and variety of trees and shrubs will add to the value of our home for years to come. We would highly recommend their services!

Paul & Ginger Fleming

We first contacted Good Earth to do our general weekly yard work because of their excellent reputation. When we decided to transform our backyard, we contacted Good Earth and were fortunate to work with Chad Oppenhuizen. After viewing our yard, he referred us to an excellent gentleman to correct our water issues with a French drain. Next, we had Chad create a professional landscape plan for our yard and he caught our vision and after only a couple of revisions, we were ready to begin. We must say that Chad and the team of expert and efficient workers were outstanding. Stone work on the beds and the stone walks, prep for planting and planting itself was very professional. There was excellent communication all around. If we wanted changes, they were made, no fuss. We replaced a patio and the stone men who did the work were excellent as well. It was the best renovation experience we have had in 48 years of marriage and 13 homes. Our thanks to Chad, the Guys, and Good Earth.

Joe and Sylvia

Professional, timely, thoughtful and beautiful is how I would best describe our experience. Absolutely thrilled and excited to work with them again on my next project.
