How did it all start?
Beginning as a modest mowing service founded by Dale Madden in 1998, Earthadelic has slowly grown into the full-service landscaping company that it is today.
What is Earthadelic?
The current company name, Earthadelic, was the epiphany of Dale’s partner, Steve Polte. The name is intended to reflect an approach to business and life. We strive to build long-term relationships with our clients and our planet, provide professionally executed services as well as creative envioronmentally conscious solutions to landscape opportunities, and have our end product reflect the emotional investment we put into our work. Earthadelic is also about maintaining a company culture in which all stakeholders – customers, team members, suppliers, owners and our planet are treated with gratitude and respect.
How is Earthadelic different than other landscaping companies?
While “passion” might seem like a strong word to describe Earthadelic’s feelings about landscaping, it’s a completely accurate one. Passion, though, doesn’t compromise professionalism. If anything, that’s just another aspect of the company that the Earthadelic team is passionate about – delivering services of the utmost quality and with the proper landscaping techniques, such as pruning, fertilizing, irrigation, weed control, and planting.
We are also constantly looking for new ways to bring our passion for the environment into our work—exploring “greener” landscaping options and approaching every project with an environmentally conscious mind.
Earthadelic isn’t just about professional delivery, it’s about professional people. All of the Earthadelic crew, all contributing members of the community, but coming from a diverse set of backgrounds, shares in the vision of the company. It is that diversity that makes Earthadelic slightly different than your average landscaping business, and that united approach to landscaping makes the Earthadelic crew highly responsive to customer input and feedback.
The Earthadelic approach is also about having fun doing something your passionate about. The partners and crew love what they do, and they want their customers to love it with them. Earthadelic is a fun company to work with, because we are always looking for ways to learn and grow, and a lot of that can come from our customers.
What makes Earthadelic most different from other landscaping companies is our desire to provide every service outside the footprint of your home or business. We’re invested in the land and the people who own it, and Earthadelic strives to be able to support that land and those people in any way possible. If you ask us to take a pair of nail clippers to your lawn at midnight we may decline, but other than that, we want to provide our customers with the best possible service.
