About Us


After emigrating from Belgium to Canada in 1910 and moving from Canada to Portland in 1923 in a horse drawn wagon, my grandfather Paul de Block established de Block Landscaping. George, Paul's son and my father, followed Paul in business after the conclusion of WWII until 1978 when I purchased the business. Three generations of uninterrupted service to gardens in the Portland area!! For the past 30 years we have grown slowly from a one man shop to a small company employing seasonally between fifteen and twenty men specializing in landscape maintenance, with emphasis on artistic pruning. Additionally, we have irrigation specialists and light construction personnel on staff for specialized projects. Please visit some of the photos on on this site to see examples of our work.

All the Best,

Larry de Block
