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 always strived to go beyond what they expected of me. I wanted to give them the best service possible.

30 years later I have surrounded myself with people as good or better than myself. 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. My promise to you is that I will always give it my all to see that the service you receive is my best.

HappyClients

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.

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.

Todd seems to have his head screwed on straight. If I had the funds to start a landscaping firm that would become known for expertise and ethics, I would begin by hiring you (Allison Lewis- Landscape Designer) and Todd.

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!

Kara is one of the best employees you have ever had. I called your office today to express how much of a keeper she is. I'd purchased multiple plants from the nursery and planted them, but they were not doing so well. Kara told me they were not a good selection for the area and recommended that she exchange them for some other selections that Kara said would do better. I was so impressed with the help and the recommendations. Make sure you hold on to her and keep her on my account as much as possible.

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!

Jeff Goldsby provided us with an estimate for total Lawn and Landscape. We accepted Jeff's 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 & 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 & 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.
