Spending copious sums of time outside in his formative years- Jarrett has developed an adoration for plants, landscapes, and nature.

Having experience in landscape maintenance and installation, designing was the next step in harvesting the fruits of his collegiate education. Jarrett is particularly interested in the relationships between microclimates, architecture, and the environment/ecology, and will use his expertise to have your landscape working for YOU! When not in school or working he enjoys movies, woodburning, hiking, camping, and exploring the wonders of the Midwest.

Lincoln Landscaping Company has been a top choice for Lincoln’s Landscaping needs because of our work ethic. Our customer will always get the high level of service they deserve.  We are called out frequently to fix what was done by another company, and hear from our clients about how they wish they had hired us the first time.  We know that we can’t always be perfect, although we strive for it.  If we make a mistake, we make it right in a timely manner. After all, there’s enough stress in the work without us creating more for our customers!
