Since 1989, Robbins Landscaping has grown from a one-man, one-truck licensed contracting business to a multidimensional landscaping firm offering clients landscape design/build, management, and irrigation services. Despite the growth and change of over thirty years of experience, the team at Robbins Landscaping, Inc. has consistently impressed our clients by creating landscapes that make them happy. Our mission at Robbins Landscaping is to enhance the value of landscapes through thoughtful design, careful installation and conscientious service, and we strive to achieve this mission for every client’s property.
Doug Robbins started turning earth, water and imagination into art at age 12. Under the watchful eye of his father, Doug developed basic landscaping skills during the hot Virginia summers. Like many ambitious young kids, Doug also maintained lawns and gardens throughout his neighborhood during high school and in the early years of college.
After spending a couple of years working for a major soft drink producer, Doug returned to his roots, the landscaping business. Through the years, members of the Robbins team have worked hard producing award-winning work and fulfilling Doug’s vision of being the landscaping company of choice in Central Virginia through the development of a truly professional and dedicated landscape design, installation and maintenance company.
Because of our commitment to attentive service, client relationships, green practices and community involvement Robbins Landscaping, Inc. is considered one of Virginia’s premiere landscaping firms.
In Remembrance of Tom
In the Spring of 2020, we lost one of our own. Tom Stuart was called to be with the Lord on Wednesday Morning, June 10th, 2020 at his home with family by his side. Tom had been bravely battling cancer.
Tom was a great friend and a tremendous asset to our team since 1997. Robbins Landscaping would not be what it is today without his contributions and loyalty for over 23 years. As our chief designer and creative artist, he believed in designing simple and classic spaces not only to meet the client needs but also create a happy place for plants. Tom had a very dry and sarcastic sense of humor and genuine belly laugh that stood above his otherwise soft-spoken demeanor. He had a factual approach and unfiltered honesty; an insatiable sweet tooth but took no sugar in his tea. Tom had a great love for plants and spoke of them as if they were friends, taking every opportunity to spend his professional and personal time enjoying and enhancing green spaces.
He was always eager to teach his horticultural skills and experience to our crews. He would even use his vacation time learning Spanish so he could better communicate with our Latino team members. His loyalty to his church, the Robbins family and our clients was unmatched. Tom’s simple, creative, and effective approach to design will live on here at Robbins Landscaping.
We will remember to look at things with an unfiltered and realistic approach.
We will remember to be still in green spaces, recognizing the ways we can enhance their beauty.
We will remember to think of ourselves less, without thinking less of ourselves.
To say he is missed is an understatement.
I don’t know what’s better the landscaping or the saint they call Doug Robbins. Wish there were more stars to give.Zach Davies
A major difference between the competition and your team is that they are skilled in pruning, edging, and “polishing the final product” as compared to just cutting and putting down mulch.Mike Mellina
We love our front yard! Leslee designed a beautiful garden, incorporating everything we asked for! The crew did a great job with plant installation and construction of the stone wall. We are very pleased!Mary Kester

You have always been fair and honest with us. We appreciate that a lot. Some minor problems with plants- 1 died in the new backyard, but you have been good about replacements.Tim and Sue Williams
Both Chris and John and his crews were a pleasure to work with: polite and professional!John Machett
I’ve been using Robbins Landscaping for mulching and landscape design for several years now. Every year they do a great job but this year was absolutely phenomenal. They are friendly, professional, do absolutely excellent work and clean everything up better than they found it. Highly recommend!Great pricing, Great service, Great work ethic, Great communication and GREAT PRODUCT.Jeremiah Yourth
All I can say is wow! I literally got tears in my eyes when I saw the yard after it was finished. It is truly unbelievable! I could not be any happier with it and don’t know how to thank you guys enough. I can’t wait for David to come home and see it, too. It really is better than I could have hoped for. Thanks again, Sarah- and Tom, for all your patience and hard work with getting this together for us. It’s truly beautiful!Kristen Stahr
One call takes care of it all! Over the years Robbins has improved their service by creating a Team of folks that take care of anything we need done. It’s a maintenance-free way of living for retirees that want to stay in their own home.Bob and Carol Bailey
This is a great group of people to work with when you need help with your lawn or landscape.Tony Bass
