About The Sharper Cut, Inc. Landscapes
The Sharper Cut, Inc. Landscapes is a single source landscape design and build firm located in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. That means we can help you through every stage of your outdoor project – from initial brainstorming, to design and material selection, and of course final build and installation.
We specialize in creating lifestyles for our clients using a phased-in approach based on proper design. Our phased-in approach using The Sharper Cut Design-Build Process means we help you think about your final vision for your outdoor space – even if today, you are focused just on one element, like the deck or a new patio. This helps to ensure that your final space is integrated and easy to use, not a piecemeal collection of different projects.
Collectively, we integrate experience and expertise, gained from a broad range of disciplines – landscape architecture, landscape design, construction expertise to name a few – to translate desires and inspirations into reality.
Our clients engage us to develop a master plan that incorporates all the elements they want for their property. That way, their project can be properly scheduled over time, saving the client money in the long run. As designers, we strive to budget the appropriate spaces based on your site, architecture of your home, and your needs. We also work with you to budget dollars for these spaces, in essence, allowing you to find a comfortable spending plan to create your dreams.
Our Company History
Over twenty years ago, a young boy had dreams of making a few extra dollars mowing neighbors’ yards. With his 21” mower hauled in the back of his father’s Honda Civic, Bill Banford developed a commendable work ethic and the respect of his community.
Today Bill and his brother, Justin Banford, lead a team of accomplished professionals operating state-of-the-art equipment at The Sharper Cut, Inc. Landscapes, a respected landscape design-build firm.
Melding the best of both worlds—high touch and high tech, the Banford brothers have written a success story that the most arduous admirers of the “American dream” find impressive. Homes of the highest order are included in The Sharper Cut, Inc. Landscapes’ portfolio, and a client roster of the area’s most desirable addresses give testimony to The Sharper Cut, Inc. Landscapes’ talents, dedication, and hard work.
How did they do it? One delighted customer at a time.
As president of The Sharper Cut, Inc. Landscapes, Bill and his design team enjoy meeting with each client and helping them create the vision of their perfect outdoor space. Justin, whose degree is in landscape management and is vice president of the firm, takes the design developed from the vision and, with his topnotch team, turns the paper dream into reality.
The Sharper Cut, Inc. Landscapes’ philosophy is to WOW their clients at every turn. From client input to design to development to customer service, their quest to exceed client expectations and constantly raise the bar on the landscape industry standards is unwavering and resolute.
