How it Started

In 1985, I started Aspen Lawn & Landscape with a lawn mower borrowed from my dad and a couple of my buddies. Slowly growing, I had to start purchasing equipment from local garage sales. My company vehicle consisted of a 1976 Matador pulling a trailer which doubled as my personal car on the weekends. I worked hard everyday to gain both my customers trust and respect. I have always striven to go beyond what they expected of me. I wanted to give them the best service possible.

Here we are 30 years later I have surrounded myself with people to fulfill my legacy. At Aspen, we make a strong commitment everyday to maintain the same level of performance I first gave my customers in 1985. It is our employees that make the difference. Through our efforts, our customer retention level remains very high. Our promise to you is that we will always give it our all to see that the service you receive is our best.

Irrigation Shut Down

Mowing & Leaf Clean-Up Service
Our weekly mowing crews are finished for the season. The mowing season begins in April and runs through October. Our mow crews are currently doing leaf clean-up services. It is important to keep the leaves off your grass as they fall in order to maintain a thick, healthy turf. If you are interested in a leaf clean-up or the weekly mowing service, please contact the office.

Plant Health Care
We are currently applying Round 5 of our plant insecticide program for the 2016 season. Round 5 is a treatment to eliminate pests in the landscape that could over winter and cause problems in the following spring. Please call to schedule a consultation with one of our certified Arborist today.

Turf Maintenance
We are applying Round 7 of 7 on our turf application program. Round 7 is a granular fertilizer that provides a heavy feeding of Nitrogen to carry the lawn through the winter and help with early green-up in the spring. If you are interested in starting your personalized turf health plan please give us a call.

We wanted to send our appreciation to Aspen on the wonderful job completed at our house. It looks fabulous and we couldn't be more pleased with the end result. Please send our thanks along to Carlos and his colleagues. They stayed until dark to finish the job and complete the cleanup. Everyone at Aspen that worked on our project went out of their way to make sure the results were what we wanted. You can be proud of the customer service your employees demonstrate to your clients. We want to express a special thank you to our designer for pulling this together and making suggestions throughout the process that ended in something much better than originally designed.

Just wanted you to know how great it has been to work with your team. I consider them and you as my Friends. They all work hard and enjoy what they do. One of your workers that I got to know stopped what he was doing yesterday to shake my hand because he heard I was moving. I can't tell you how sad that made me feel to be leaving your team. I hope I will be allowed to work with you and your team in helping to continue to make the South Hallbrook Villas beautiful and a great place to live. Bob

Kent- I just wanted to tell you how much the Chartwell Homes Association residents appreciate and love Justin. We are having a party tonight, I had called to see if someone could come out and change the bulbs in our outside lights. Justin came and took care of it for us. He always has a smile and is so pleasant to work with. I hope Aspen appreciates having such a fine young man representing you. My friend at Lionsgate feels the same way. Thank you for taking such good care of Chartwell and having Justin too!

I want to convey to you tonight what an absolute golden associate you have in Adam and his dedication to the company. He more than exemplified that tonight with his absolute dedication. At 6:15 on this Friday night I got a call from Jerry H. that the water was flooding out of the valve area in his yard. I shut off the boxes and called Adam on his cell phone. He said he would try and get some people in irrigation to come in tomorrow and address the problem. He called back in 20 minutes and said no such luck and therefore he would come out himself. I asked about his weekend plans and he mentioned that he was leaving early in the morning for Omaha for his mother’s wedding. So he comes out at 7:00 to work for us and finishes at 9:00 with a trip to Lowes for a part. We are back in business for tomorrow. I hope you have a lot of people like Adam.

Kudos to you for employing such quality people like Jim, your pest control technician. He is a fine representative for your company and we appreciate his expertise and professionalism.

Justin: A short note to commend you and your crew for the wonderful beginning into Spring. You told us that we have one of the premier neighborhoods in KC and it is starting to look like it, as you promised! Thank you for making the transition so easy and promising!

Hello Kent- I have been meaning to write to you for about a year now...and finally wanted to take the time to drop you this note. I live in Pembroke Court and Aspen takes care of our property. I am one that tends to do some extra things-and last year I undertook a landscape project. This year, I added to it. Justin has been my main contact at your Company and want you to know what a valuable employee you have in him. He is responsive, articulate, creative and does what he says he going to do. The crews that he sends are also very reliable and everyone seems to be "perfectionists" which I really appreciate more than you can imagine. I enjoy doing business with your company and just wanted you to know that. Best regards, Cathy

I love the drainage work!! Oh my gosh, it has made all the difference in the world in the (lack of) swampiness of our back yard. It's wonderful!!! Now I'm mad we didn't do this years ago. Your guys are fantastic, the men who mow, mulch and do the applications, all of them!

We love everything that was done on our landscaping by Aspen. The tree is beautiful! Thank you so much for all your smart, hard work!

Aspen did a wonderful job of profoundly understanding my vision for our landscaping needs. They kept it within my budget and far exceeded my expectations. My house and lawn have never looked better. I am very grateful. I would highly recommend them!

Aspen provided us with an estimate for total Lawn and Landscape. We accepted the estimate and Aspen proceeded with the work. Aspen came in and 3 things I noticed: Communications was outstanding, Work was very professional and Time to complete the job was both fast and clean. The yard is Amazing! One neighbor came out and simply stared at the lawn and then said to me: "I am envious!

I had a great experience with Adam when he was at my home recently working on my irrigation system. He is excellent at what he does- very professional and knows a lot about the business.

You have a great group of workers from your pleasant office staff who answer the phone to your designers, irrigation technicians and lawn workers. We're very happy!

Justin's level of service, from our very first interaction, can only be described as “all over it.” He is incredibly responsive, always doing what he says when he says it will be done. As someone who helps CEOs of some of the largest companies in our region be better communicators, I have yet to get an email from Justin that has a single typo or misworded sentence, something that has not escaped my notice. He is genuinely committed to the customer, something we have experienced at every turn. We don’t know all the members of the Aspen team, but I can tell you that if they mirror the customer service ethic of Justin and others we have encountered over time, Aspen will be our landscaping partner for life.

I have been using Aspen Lawn and Landscape to care for all my lawn and landscape needs for over 15 years. They have done a consistently outstanding job and are very professional and responsive to my needs. I enthusiastically recommend them.

Our relationship with Aspen Lawn and Landscape began almost 20 years ago through our neighborhood homes association. The words that describe their work include: dependable, quality-minded, fair, friendly and flexible.
