Brighton Landscape was founded in 1978 by current owner & president, David Swarthout. Over the past 40 years, Brighton Landscape has learned to adapt, overcome & master all aspects of the ever-changing landscape industry. Appropriate plant selection and placement, proper installation of materials, and standardized maintenance practices are only a few pieces of the puzzle.  Years of experience,  paired with continuous education, is what puts Brighton Landscape above the rest.
