Bushmen Landscaping has evolved from the need to earn money when laid off from a local steel mill to a successful business. While being laid off in 1991 I began helping my neighbor with his painting business which also involved doing some drywall finishing. I continued to work at Standard Steel and sometimes would even be working both jobs if I was called back to work.

Around 1999 I had acquired my first mowing account and my own business was born. For the next 10 years I ran more of a handyman business, doing anything that a customer may have needed done at that time. Eventually the landscaping end of the business was going so well, it took up the majority of our time and Caleb, my youngest, was taking a strong interest in it so we decided to put our focuses upon landscaping.

Since graduating from High School in 2009, Caleb has taken responsibility for hardscaping projects. He has become ICPI and NCNA certified, and continues to take the lead in most of the field operations including mowing. I on the other hand have taken responsibility for estimates, sales and office work and helping in the field.
