Who We Are

Our company was founded in 1982 by Steve Mansfield who is still the owner/operator. It was originally named A-1 Landscaping of Orlando, Inc. Some 30 years later in 2007 we took on a partner and future total owner, Ronald Martin, our son-in-law. Steve Mansfield is from Central Illinois where he grew up in 5 boy's homes and 17 foster homes. He moved to Orlando in 1980 and after a couple of years of sleeping in and out of his car as well as flop houses, and working in labor pools for $25.00 per day, he realized he needed to develop a plan for a better life. He took his $54.00 and a loan from a friend of $600.00, and turned it into a multi-million per year business. He never forgets where he came from and has donated in excess of 1 million dollars to places he's lived in as well as local boy's homes in Orlando such as Edgewood Children's Ranch.

From 1982-2000 we worked mainly in the Orlando area grossing 2 million per year doing landscaping, sodding, and irrigation. From 2000-2007 we did all the sod, irrigation, grating, and landscaping on new homes as well as existing homes at the Plantation of Leesburg. The project built out on December of 2006 and we stayed until the completion. When we first started with this project there were 4 landscapers until 3 months later when they narrowed it down to just us. We did 1700 homes, 5 model homes, and 2 club houses.

In 2006, we changed our name to Mansfield Landscaping LLC., from A-1 Landscaping of Orlando, Inc. In 2007 we started doing after market landscaping in The Villages® community, Florida as well as the rest of Central Florida. For the ten years that we have been in the villages we have worked for over 4,000 customers. We created a world class nursery and outdoor showroom and estimate that even though we have a hundred competitors in The Villages® community alone that we do 1 out of every 5 after market jobs.

Our philosophy is simple; keep our word, do what we say, and do whatever it takes to make the customer happy. That's why there's never a deposit required. If you are not happy we will do what it takes to make you happy. Estimates never take more than 1-2 days and jobs never take more than 3-10 days.

Helpful Hints

  1. When getting other quotes: have specific amounts and types of product, amount of sod, footage of curbing, etc.
  2. Never give a deposit, we do not ask for one.
  3. Ask if you are not happy with the job if they guarantee it or will remove everything at no cost to you.
  4. Ask if they bring three (3) times the quantity and three (3) times the type of plants you need to let you choose others in case you are not satisfied with your original selections.
  5. Ask if they will plant all the big stuff and place small plants in buckets to allow you to re-arrange them until you are happy.
  6. Ask if they have a web site, a portfolio of all jobs completed and a brochure depicting any plants that may be used.
  7. Ask if they will drive you around to jobs they have done so you can see their prior work.
  8. Ask if their irrigation tech comes by after every job to adjust your irrigation, re-set your timers and make sure everything gets 100 percent coverage. By law, all new landscaping is allowed to be watered for 30 days, from 4pm until 10am.
  9. Ask if they furnish frost blankets for all cold sensitive plants if necessary.
  10. Ask if they will come to your home within 48 hours if you need service. Do they guarantee all work will start within 3-4 days?
  11. 9 out of 10 landscapers do not have Workmans Comp or have General Liability coverage. Ask to see our certificates.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

I highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping!

People who use him love him and those who don't have never used him!

Angie Fox

We saw one of your flyers in the local newspaper and decided to give you a call. Within an hour you were at our home ready to explain our landscaping options and give us an estimate. After driving by other projects you had done, we decided to have you do our landscaping. The project was started on time and finished within 2 days, even though we made changes in the plantings as we went along. We are totally satisfied with our landscaping.

Being new to the area, we were unaware of the care needed for our landscaping, especially in colder weather. The day before a big frost, we were delighted to come home and find that you have come over and covered our Robellini with a frost blanket as well as some other frost sensitive plants. We recommend your services to anyone wanting a great looking landscape done on a timely basis.

Corky and Diane (The Villages, Hadley)

Your presentation was professional and thorough in offering us a multitude of options. You suggested numerous planting choices to meet our budget while giving us the types of plants that would give us the look we wanted. Your crew completed the job ahead of schedule with our full satisfaction, and your follow-up service is exemplary.

We want to thank you for a job well done and will continue to recommend your services to other.

Used Manfield and I am satisfied. Called him on Monday and he came the same day and gave an estimate and the work was completed on Thursday. I like that.

Steve is an incredibly talented landscaper... definitely not a run of the mill type. He selects plantings with care and thought for locations and overall design. An added bonus is his conscientiousness towards his customers and the pride he takes in his work... all with good reason. His workers are polite and efficient about cleanup after installing plants. I do not hesitate to give him my highest recommendation.

Julie Moretti (The Villages)

Such great, friendly and hard-working guys who kept me updated on what they were doing and why. I have now had my first SUPER experience with a landscaper and it was MANSFIELD LANDSCAPING!!! Thanks so much!!

We made our decision to go with Mansfield Landscaping after seeing beautifully landscaped homes. First of all, we were very pleased with how easy it was to get in touch with them and to schedule an appointment in a short amount of time. Steve was very thorough with information about everything we needed to know on the phone, and our meeting with Ron was very pleasant. He listened to our ideas and came up with just what we were looking for within our budget. The work crew were very courteous and the job was completed in the time agreed upon with no payment until everything was finished to our satisfaction. We have received many compliments about our landscaping already. We especially love looking at the gorgeous triple Sylvester palm as we sit in our lanai.

Thank you for a job well done!
