As Sundown Landscape Contracting enters its 42nd year in business, we have established a reputation for specializing in design for foundation landscapes, home gardens, patio areas, and water features.
Both David Haring and Barb Riney have Horticultural Degrees and many years experience. This has prepared us to help you with not only the design, but also the preparation and maintenance of your yard and garden. Our philosophy is to create seasonal interest in all of our designs and to carefully consider the effect of blooms, colors, and textures in the plants we use.

David Haring – President
Dave’s success over the last 42 years has been based on a simple approach. “Give customers a good experience, make them feel comfortable, and do the job like you would at your own home. As president of Sundown Landscape, making this concept our #1 priority has earned the trust & friendship of hundreds of people in the Saint Louis community.”
Although 4 years of horticultural education has been helpful, I have learned most of what I know through trial and error. Understanding that this is your home and not mine, has taught me to always ask questions and listen carefully. Understanding customers likes & dislikes, and the amount of time they really want to spend in their yard allows me to truly tailor a design that fits your needs.
I would like to say thank you for taking the time to browse our website. I can promise you that between myself, our designer Barb and our seasoned installation crew. We will provide you with a beautiful four seasoned finished product and a great experience. Please don’t hesitate to call; I would love the opportunity to help you make the most of your property. –Dave Haring
