The holiday season always leaves us reflecting on what we are grateful for. As a business owner, I have many things to be thankful for this holiday season. We are extremely grateful for the relationships we have built with our clients and their dedication and support over the last few years. Most importantly, I couldn’t be more thankful for the team we have built here at Landscape America. This team has worked extremely hard over the last few years and has developed into a team that I am extremely proud of.
We're fortunate to have an outstanding, dedicated team.
Since sharpening our core values in 2019, we have worked toward our mission to cultivate a culture of excellence by challenging ourselves to do our very best work every day in service of our clients. We can’t complete this mission every day unless everyone who works here believes in it. And we do. We hire people who deeply understand this mission. We are fortunate to have built our team with individuals who are passionate and dedicated to our core values.
Our people are the heart of our business.
As leaders, my brother Andy and I strive to make Landscape America more than just a place where our employees go to work and back home at the end of the day. We have tried our best to make it a family and a lifestyle where we all come together with passion and expertise to achieve the same goal: to serve our client's desires for beautiful outdoor spaces.
Landscape America’s Core Values
This year we implemented nominating a Core Values Champion (CVC) every month in lieu of an Employee of the Month. The CVC is nominated by our staff through a company-wide vote where our team selects an individual that has best exemplified our core values for the month. We work hard to maintain our core values and thought selecting a person within our company who represents them would be a good way to not only recognize the work our staff is doing, but also keep our core values at the forefront of our team members’ minds. Our company core values are:
- Be professional and safe
- Be positive and helpful
- Stay focused and grow
- Deliver on promises
- Work hard as a team to win

Landscape America’s Core Value Champions
Every month we select our CVC and recognize them internally and via social media. We wanted to give our 2022 CVCs an additional shoutout here. Please give a round of applause to our 2022 Core Values Champions:
“Kyle exhibits all our core values every day! He is a true asset to our team and we are fortunate to have him”
“Karen is always willing to go above and beyond to help out whenever and wherever she is needed. She clearly defines what it means to work hard as a TEAM to win!”
“Nate said he would help out with fertilization when he heard we were in need, and he followed through. His efforts helped us get back on track and he gained some great experience in a new service line.”
“Carlos gives every client the same great quality with no exceptions. He exemplifies what it means to be professional and safe! We are lucky and thankful to have him on our team.”
