SLS Landscaping
Find your vacation destination this year in your very own backyard.

by Staff

THE PAST FEW MONTHS HAVE NOT BEEN EASY AND NOW, with the nice weather approaching people are ready to get outside. This year many people are choosing to stay home and enjoy summer in their own backyards. With less traveling and plenty of time to think of new  ideas, homeowners know what they want and are ready to transform their outdoor space into their own personal vacation spot.  

SLS Landscaping, Inc. is just the company to give you the backyard vacation destination you desire. Since 1992, this company has been creating beauty in backyards all over South Jersey. SLS is a premier  design/build and maintenance company with a full staff of licensed, degreed and experienced professionals. From landscape architects, designers, horticulturists to trained services technicians, SLS provides innovative and functional designs using quality products. 

Sam Waddell is the owner of SLS Landscaping and prides himself on always staying ahead of the newest features and trends in the industry and he continually looks for ways to grow. “We want to be able to offer our customers everything we can to help meet their demands,” says Waddell.   

In recent years SLS added pools to its amazing list of services. “Pools are extremely popular this year because so many people are  truly planning to vacation in their backyards,” says Waddell.  

Pools can transform a backyard  and provide endless fun for families. “Our architects and designers have designed many pools over  the years as part of overall projects so it seemed a natural progression to be able to offer that service under one roof and under our company name,” adds Waddell. 

SLS offers custom gunite pools, which allows their designers more flexibility to give customers a pool of their very own unique design, size, shape and depth. “We can continue the design of a pool with amenities such as waterfalls, sun shelves, deep water swimouts, LED  lighting and energy-efficient pool equipment, just to name a few,” says Waddell.        

SLS is constantly keeping up with the latest in landscaping and hardscaping materials. From stone, granite to pavers and more, they can create one-of-a-kind looks for every customer by offering unique blends of materials, colors and designs. SLS designers are constantly challenged to find something new and different in their designs.   

The real beauty comes in SLS’s ability to bring together the big picture of an outdoor environment, ensuring that every element works together to leave no detail out. “We can design  an entire outdoor package that may include a custom swimming pool with water features, an outdoor kitchen complete  with custom countertops and a sink and refrigerator. Landscape and hardscape designs  can include entertainment patios, decks or pergolas complete with fireplaces and overall landscape looks containing lush plantings that offer shade, color and low-voltage lighting,” says Waddell.

SLS is a one-stop shop—all of its services are offered under one roof, with one point of contact. From the initial consultation through the design phase to completion of the project and regular follow-up  maintenance, the SLS Landscaping team is with you all the way. Customers can rest assured  that whether they desire a backyard vacation paradise, a newly pavered walkway or want a custom look for their landscaping, they will have plenty of top-quality choices in materials, trees, plants, shrubs and more.

SLS follows all CDC guidelines for their own protection as well as their customers. “These days we want everyone to relax and truly enjoy time with their families in the vacation backyard of their dreams,” says Waddell.
