Tranquil large rock water feature, rock stepped walkway, and gorgeous flower gardens.


From plain and under-utilized to peacefully beautiful, EARTHWORK has completely transformed this property. We brought in tons (literally) of large boulders and flat rocks to create a lovely rock walk path and water feature that is the very essence of tranquility. Surrounding these elegant stone steps and waterfall are dozens of colorful flowers and foliage. These rock and flower garden plots add color and beauty to an already lovely scene. Furthermore, the custom built water fall lends tranquil authenticity to your swimming experience. Another successful southern Illinois landscaping project


Effective & creative landscaping can completely transform your property.


After meetings and interviews, EARTHWORK owner Mark Riffel sets to work planning each project on paper. Mark’s attention to detail in his creative process is unmatched. In addition, his designs are a wonderful blend of traditional and cutting edge. Due to this, EARTHWORK is widely regarded as one of the top landscaping contractors in southern Illinois and beyond. This fact is clearly evidenced in the photos you’ll see here.


Once a design is conceptualized, we discuss the details with property owners and, after any necessary tweaks, EARTHWORK’s team of experienced professionals go to work. We prep the property, then bring in the materials and execute the plan with unwavering attention to detail. We take pride in our work and doing it the right way every time. EARTHWORK won’t stop until the job is done.
