Hello, We're The Flanigens

I’m Charlie Flanigen and I have about 30 years of experience in the landscaping industry. I have been a licensed irrigator for over 25 years, have an established clientele, and a long list of references. I pride myself on maintaining the work that we install and form a long lasting business relationship with my customers, future and present. My motto is “work hard, play hard”.

I enjoy wakeboarding in the summer and snowboarding in the winter. I try to stay in good health with mountain biking and working out as often as life’s busy schedule allows. I have a large family and have introduced my kids to sports and active living and I am proud of all of them for their passions and aspirations.

After leaving the Marines as a young man, I realized I was a leader and wanted to build my own future. I started a company with a lawn mower and old truck and built a multimillion dollar company. I soon realized, while doing a lot of commercial work, that most of my projects were fixing mistakes made by large crews.

That realization inspired me to create a small, highly-meticulous business where I was able to be on every job and enjoy the reward of creating spaces that are one-of-a-kind for my customers.

I cannot put into words how pleased we have been with Cantera Landscaping. Exceptional quality with exceptional service. My husband and I have lived in twelve houses, and our last two were here in the Lakewood area of Dallas, where we decided to contract out our landscaping with Charlie. We were so impressed with the first experience that we couldn’t have imagined going with anyone else besides Charlie. He is always professional, on time, and he has an amazing artistic mind set for any type of yard, small or large. He turned our half acre yard into a masterpiece. He did a perfect French Country design in the front to go along with the style of the house and a tropical paradise getaway in the backyard. Charlie stands behind his word and his product. Profoundly customer-oriented, Cantera also has great after care options. I recommend Cantera Landscaping to anyone who is looking for one of the top landscaping services in the Dallas/ Ft. worth area. If you want to be treated exceptional and not like just another customer, while having a gorgeous yard that you will be dying to show off to family and friends, you should choose Cantera Landscaping.

Holy cow!!!!! It looks fantastic!!! Thank you so much. The tree, the patio, the plantings and the awesome fire pit. You did a terrific job and I am so grateful. You have such a marvelous eye and we are the lucky beneficiaries.

Cantera Outdoors is simply the best!

Charlie created an outdoor entertainment and pool area for my wife and I that far exceeded our expectations. Charlie is gifted with a wonderful creativity towards outdoor design that I have not seen with other landscape designers. Beyond his impressive design, the construction was completed with speed and professionalism and an emphasis on customer service with a deferential attitude. I highly recommend Cantera Outdoors to anyone searching for a premium outdoor design and construction specialist. Charlie will be my first call if we ever decide to relocate from our new back yard oasis and need the same magic duplicated elsewhere.
