Ridgecrest Landscaping: Designing your Home’s Perfect Setting

A mainstay of the Denver, NC, small-business community, Ridgecrest Garden Center and Ridgecrest Landscaping are the pride and passion of the Case family. That includes April, who oversees the charming retail garden shop, and her husband Walter, the true landscape guru.

If you’re seeking to be the envy of your neighborhood, you’ll definitely want to call Walter! The landscape side of the business, Ridgecrest Landscaping, LLC, is a full-service landscape, lawn care, tree service, and irrigation service company. Plus, this entity of the family-owned operation is still going strong even though the retail shop closes for the winter months of January and February. Thanks to Walter’s innovative vision and strong customer service, he’s been a pro at this for over 30 years, and the master of what makes your outside living areas so welcoming. From planting to paving and any other creative outdoor project you can imagine, he’s confident in the quality of work the Ridgecrest Landscaping crew provides, and their superior level of customer service. Those are his keys to success.

“When I meet a new customer, I like to hear their own ideas – a mixture of their ‘wants’ and ‘needs’ – then I offer them my ideas to make that happen,” he says.


This time of year Walter is usually immersed in “hardscape” plans for around the home, including driveways, sidewalks, garden paths, patios, brick walls, or the exciting trending concept of outdoor kitchens. Currently, Walter and his crews are working on a large clearing project on Interstate 485, soon to be the new Subaru dealership in Pineville, they have three outdoor living area projects in progress, and a newly built home where they will install irrigation, oversee grading, planting, and mulching. Later, they’ll offer top-notch lawn services for the new home owners, and prepare their yard for spring mulching.

“We guide clients to the right plants for their home, whether it’s an area with all shade, or a front yard with full, glorious sunshine!” says Walter. It’s a proven fact that excellent landscaping around your home adds a great deal to your overall property value, so having expert advice and service from the very beginning is essential.

Walter shares that while spring and fall are the most ideal seasons for planting, home owners can plant any time of year if they are willing to do a little extra towards keeping those plants in good shape that first year after planting. Once your landscape design is in place, the garden center offers impeccable choices in locally sourced shrubbery, trees, perennials, vegetables, hanging baskets, seasonal annuals, and some of the prettiest flowers around. And Walter is also known for standing by this promise: If he wouldn’t plant it at his family’s home, he won’t sell it to you for your home. He and April opened the business with a desire to sell quality plants at reasonable prices, and of course, be the resource Denver residents turn to for knowledge when it comes to caring for nature’s most beautiful plants and flowers. They also offer the friendliest welcome and shop ambiance in town – while Walter and his crew will have your home turning heads all through your neighborhood!

The garden shop side will reopen in March, where April will be thrilled to help you design beautiful perennial gardens, planters, and flower beds, and show off their newest house plants, eclectic gift items, and fun seasonal décor!
