About Harder Services

Harder Services was incorporated in 1922 by F. Kenneth Harder in Hempstead, New York on Long Island, and it has remained a family-operated business ever since.  Frank Harder, Jr. joined the company after a military tour of duty in the Korean War and remains involved, along with his sons William J. and Frank, III, and grandson Jack.  Our company provides professional landscape installation and care for home and industry throughout the New York Metro area.  Harder Services staff includes certified arborists, certified pesticide applicators, landscape designers and experienced management.  Today, the name “Harder” carries a reputation of excellence, professionalism and satisfaction, as it has for over 90 years.

While there is a great deal of competition in the landscape industry, Harder sets itself apart by offering the complete package: tree care, landscape installation, landscape maintenance and integrated pest management.  While other companies boast specialists in only one, or maybe two, of these categories, at Harder, we are equipped to handle every aspect of your landscape.  A reputation of satisfaction that dates back to the 1920′s keeps our customers coming back.  The most important thing that we can offer to our customers is the promise that they will be treated with respect, courtesy and honesty and all work will be handled in a professional manner through, not only completion, but satisfaction as well.

We offer both residential and commercial landscape services, including landscape creation, preservation and improvement for the New York Metro area.  All year ’round, we offer a variety of emergency services for handling hazardous, weather-related damage.  We are licensed and insured and members of the TCIA (Tree Care Industry Association) and PLANET (Professional Landcare Network), as well as fully OSHA compliant.  We achieved Accreditation through the TCIA after an 18-month process and are now among 11 accredited tree care companies in the State of New York.
