Fleet and Equipment

We own and operate a wide variety of excavators, skid steers, dozers, dump trucks, trenchers and compaction equipment. We have several welding rigs, demo hammers, generators, pressure washers and a variety of other power tools. We run a large fleet of late model heavy duty pickup trucks and a variety of trailers to move equipment and materials efficiently and quickly. We take pride in providing our own equipment for the vast majority of projects that we are on and look forward to growing our fleet further over time.

Environmental Responsibility

Strata Landscape is committed to doing our part for our local, state and global environment. We recycle at our yard and on the job site, compost organic waste and reuse onsite material as often as possible. 100% of our waste material (steel, wood, concrete and trash) is sorted and recycled off site by a third party vendor. We take care when employing the use of chemicals for landscape management. We also donate financial resources and services to local non-profits such as the Nature Conservancy and the Austin Parks Foundation.
