Welcome to Carleton Landscaping
Design - Hardscapes - Water Features - Installation
Serving Medford-Ashland-Jacksonville-Rogue Valley for 40 Years

Contractor # LCB#6150

In addition to softscapes, Carleton Landscaping specializes in stonework, including rock retaining walls, flagstone walks, patios and paths, which give a look of permanence as well as being useful. "We believe that function must accompany beauty". A successful landscape has to be functional; creating a beautiful picture can always be achieved once traffic patterns, space, adjoining properties, family member needs, budget and owner maintenance abilities are taken into account. Many of our designs include water features, which are often "pondless". Pondless water features are gaining popularity because they require almost no maintenance but do not sacrifice the beauty or sounds created by water in motion. Visit our gallery page to see examples of our water features, hardscapes and completed projects. Many references are available. Contact us for a consultation without obligation and we will be pleased to submit a design that will stay within a stated budget, yet will be functional and include as many of the client's desires as possible. Our 40-year reputation is a part of every project.

Horticulturist - 40 Years Experience

Carleton Landscapes has been owned and operated by Robert Carleton for 40 years. Robert Carleton is a graduate horticulturist and can show several properties that have incorporated hardscapes and softscapes as well as use of garden art, pottery and professional pruning. Based in Jacksonville we are accessible to you anywhere in the Rogue Valley including Medford, Ashland and Grants Pass. Our goal has always been to design and install beautiful and useful landscape projects for homeowners and busineses.

Many landscapers charge a percentage of the project cost or a flat design fee, we have never charged for designs, and are the only landscape company that covers all plants and work for two years. Our prices are very competitive because we grow trees and shrubs at our nursery in Central Point and maintain close relationships with area nurseries to ensure the best value from the plants we use. Because we grow our trees locally, we ensure that our plant material is acclimated to the Rogue Valley's weather conditions. Tours by the client to select their trees and shrubs at the nursery are encouraged. Our Tree Nursery is located in Central Point and easily accessable from Medford, Ashland, Jacksonville and the rest of the Rogue Valley.

"Bob Carleton did an outstanding job on our waterfall & landscaping. We had a bare hillside and now there is an attractive water feature & plants to enjoy all year long. Bob's skill showed in the selecting the right plants for our sunny hillside with clay soil. We found Bob to be honest & hard working. He created an even larger waterfall that originally planned. It is so enjoyable now to sit on our patio & hear our water feature. It is very rewarding to work with such a professional landscaper. We have recommended him to several of our friends."

Mr. & Mrs. Koby, East Medford

My wife, Susan and I had moved into our new home in Jacksonville and were faced with an insurmountable landscape job. The empty backyard was a walled with concrete blocks topped by a raw, red bank of J'Ville clay. Bob Carleton to the rescue. Bob provided the right plants and planting advice and skills to turn our wasteland into a gorgeous garden. Bob continues to provide sound advice about improvements. He has added rustic stone walls and deer-discouraging plants to our unfenced areas and keeps watch over our plants' progress. Bob is our valued landscape mentor and friend.

I have used the services of Bob Carleton for landscaping, rock patio building and water falls. I have found him to be honest and reliable, always showing up when he said he would, completing the work project with the time frame mentioned, returning my phone calls and answering any questions I needed for my understanding and clarity for the project. I would highly recommend him. He is an expert in his field.

During ALL of our dealings with Bob Carleton of Carleton Landscaping we have found him to be very reliable and trustworthy. Bob has been very punctual in returning phone calls, leaving messages and overall communication has been very easy between us. His work has been completed on schedule and as ordered with any follow up on our part. His attention to detail has made our project outstanding. We would highly recommend him to anyone searching for a Landscape Contractor who delivers what he commits to, and on time.

Bob Carleton has worked on several landscaping projects for me over the past three & a half years. I have found him to be very reliable, always prompt in returning calls and his work was above average. If we experienced any problems, he certainly followed thru and corrected them. Some of the work was traded out and again he was always there to fulfill his obligations in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to have Bb do mare work for me and in fact I plan to use him in the future. I have found that many service businesses like landscaping or construction people are far less responsible as Bob Carleton has been. He is a very honest and ethical man and I would not hesitate to recommend his work to anyone.

Bob Carleton of Carleton Landscape, Jacksonville OR, has landscaped two houses for me in the past three years. The house at … Jacksonville was a complete re-landscape of a house on the historic register. The house at …Ashland was an addition on many trees and plants to an existing landscape. In both projects Mr. Carleton was prompt and accurate with cost and time estimates. He completed all work within schedule time and cost goals. He returned all phone calls promptly and was personable and easy to deal with in all phases of the landscaping projects. His nursery stock was excellent quality and he guaranteed the plants for enough time to get them started and growing well. I would recommend Mr. Carleton for any landscaping project. Tim T., Ashland

From Delia

Bob Carleton has done landscape work for me on different occasions over a period of several years. I have come to know Bob as a man of his worked and as someone that constantly works in his client's best interest. I have never known him to not to promptly return calls and on occasion drop everything he was currently doing to deal with my issues.

Hey Bob, I wanted to thank you in, in writing, for the outstanding job you've done for me this month. As you saw when you first arrived, my yard was an overgrown mess. Thanks to your guidance, materials and hard work, I finally (three years later) have something I not only can live with, but can actually improve upon. It has been a PLEASURE working with you, not just because of your generous personality, but because of the promptness of your attention when I've called with questions or ideas. I most certainly WILL attest to your professionalism if someone asks in the future. In fact, I'd say you have set a new standard for reliability for landscapers, and that's not just because of my previous experience was so horrific! Thanks again, and look forward to watching your handiwork literally grow in my yard!

Scott L., Medford

Dear Bob, Thank you for the vision you had, for listening to our wants and needs and for the wonderful deck that, before you came along, had been a distant dream, because, according to other designers, it wasn't a realistic idea. Now our yard is useable, inviting an friendly. Before your most excellent work, it really did look like something from "The Adam's Family" ha ha! Your design brought out the uniqueness and the beauty of our home.

We've had so many positive comments from our neighbors who say they never realized how lovely the house was, and in truth, neither did we, as shrubs, large messy trees and ubiquitous Junipers hid it. We appreciate your vision, all of your hard work, being true to your word, starting when you said you would and working diligently until the yard was perfect, not only in your eyes but ours as well. Thank you again, we are enjoying your superb landscape design and will think of you with fond memories for years to come.

Virgil and Betty L.

"Bob Carleton has worked on my personal house and a townhouse project that I am the general contractor on. He show up on the job site when he says he will, he always returns phone calls. Whatever we have needed from Bob he has always come through. Bob Carleton's professional and friendly and always ready to go the extra mile.

Todd & Beth, Jacksonville
