Who We Are

Who We Are

Our company was founded in 1982 by Steve Mansfield, who is still the owner/operator. It was initially named A-1 Landscaping of Orlando, Inc. 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 flophouses, and working in labor pools for $25.00 per day, he realized he needed to develop a plan for a better life. Steve 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 more than 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 in December of 2006, and we stayed until the completion. When we first started with this project, there were four landscapers until three months later, when they narrowed it down to just us. We did 1,700 homes, 5 model homes, and two clubhouses.

In 2006, we changed our name to Mansfield Landscaping LLC., from A-1 Landscaping of Orlando, Inc. In 2007 we started doing aftermarket 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® community, 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 five aftermarket 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 satisfied, 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 if you are not satisfied with your initial 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 the plants that may be used on your property.
  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 4 pm until 10 am.
  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.

Latest Reviews

After researching and reviewing several landscaping companies, we decided to call Mansfield to completely re-do our front landscaping plus install privacy landscaping in the backyard.  From the initial phone call until the completion of the job (8 days later), everyone we dealt with was knowledgeable and professional.  Steve listened to our landscaping ideas, made suggestions, and pointed out the positives and negatives of what we wanted.  He was honest and straight forward in his approach.  His employees, John Wayne and Dustin, worked diligently to provide us with excellent results.   With Steve’s 30 years of experience in the landscaping business, if you are looking for someone to work quickly, efficiently, and honestly, I would recommend Mansfield and will use them again for any future needs.

We just had our front landscape redone. We are pleased with Steve and his efforts to give us a quality project. Very pleased with stacking wall, pavers, and plant choices. Thank you Steve!:)

From the first visit to develop a complete re-landscaping design for our home, including removal of all existing bushes, shrubs, mulch, curbing etc. until completion which included bed expansion, plant and tree selection and placement, new curbing and use of river rock every single aspect of the finished product was completed perfectly. We could not be happier with our finished landscaping project. Steve and his crews went out of the way to ensure our project was everything he promised and even more. His professional recommendations and advice were spot on and the finished product reflects his care and pride. Highly Recommend and very glad we selected Mansfield Landscaping to do the job. A truly "First Class" operation.

We really enjoyed working with Mansfield on the landscaping project for our home. They performed the design perfectly and the plants were beautiful. We had immediate response from neighbors that our yard was gorgeous.

Disclaimer: If you use the owner Steve's service, you align to his method. His website and portfolio is honed to get to the point for job. His communication style my be off putting for many because of the embellishments around the process when starting. Upon agreeing to a plan, he finishes the job as if it is his own home. The upfront cost is decided and fixed withoutsurprises, he does whatever is needed to leave you content with the outcome. His workforce is skilled, able to be communicated with, and outcomes quality. You get what you pay for. I have used 4 other companies in Orlando. This was by far the most efficient and clear group I've ever worked with (done in 5 days for complete front and back landscaping job). While other companies were more personable in first perceptions, the outcomes not the same. He warms up quick. You want the job done right, budget for it and get it done with this team.

Our experience with Mansfield was awesome! Steve came out and explained about the different palms and which would look the best for our front yard. We are thrilled with our design and the workmanship is second to none! Thank you Steve and crew!
