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

Just had Mansfield landscape do our yard and am very happy with not only the work done, but with the large size and healthy quality of the plants and palms. The crew was wonderful and completed a major job in a half day. Extra plants were added and all the beds received extra mulching at no extra charge. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a good, reliable landscape company.

Mansfield did our landscaping in the last 3 weeks and we couldn't be any happier. The did a phenomonal job in a short amount of time and we are ecstatic. Please feel free to come by and see ours on Evinston Court.

We hired Mansfield Landscaping recently and were pleased with the results. Steve,Ron and their crews showed up when they said they would and finished when they said they would. The selection of plants, shrubs and trees were numerous and all were very healthy. They assisted with the design and wanted to make sure we were pleased with the final product, which we were. I would use them again and highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone who is considering an upcoming landscaping project.

George Harrington

Thank you Mansfield Landscaping for the beautiful landscape job. We are very pleased with the final results. The people involved with our landscaping were very professional and courteous. Ron and his men did not leave until we were completely satisfied with their work. Thank you again for a beautiful job.

I would like to recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone who might want some quality work. I called a week ago yesterday and one week later my work was done. I went from having the worst yard in the neighborhood to one of the nicest. Steve is almost annoyingly accommodating and insistent on pleasing. He recommended plants of different colors, something I wouldn't have thought of. My favorite part is the wall - the pieces look like mica. The supervisor was the nicest person and a good communicator. He really knew what he was doing, having worked for Steve for years and due to the volume of work Mansfield does. I feel so happy today, like you would if you just got a new car!

Linda Rogers (The Villages)

Thank you so much for replacing the plants in our yard that did not survive the winter. Everything looks so beautiful, and I am very grateful to you and your employees for doing such a wonderful job.

Mary Ann Flynn (The Villages)

We could not believe Steve told us if we did not like the job, he would take it out with no extra cost to us. How could we go wrong? Our landscaping has added tremendous value to our home. You owe it to your yard to call Steve.
