OUR STORY

Bushmen Landscaping is a full service landscaping company that was started in 2001 and serves both the Lewistown and State College area. This is our story!

Jon Bush is a family man who has been married to his loving wife since August 22, 1987. Together they have raised 3 boys and have each been an integral part of their lives and their respective interests. Jon has resided in the Lewistown area since 1974 when his family moved there from Milesburg in Center County. He graduated from high school in 1983 and went on to serve two years in the US Army, where he was stationed in Fort Richardson, Alaska. Following an honorable discharge in 1986, he attended Williamsport Area Community College in Williamsport, PA. After college, Jon went on to work as a mason for a couple of years until he took a job at the local steel mill (Standard Steel). After 14 years of working in this industry, Jon noticed a need in his community that he could fill: landscaping. Jon founded Bushmen Landscape Professionals in 2001 and began the difficult task of building a business from the ground up. 

Caleb Bush, Jon’s oldest son, began working with his dad’s business in high school and took on a more substantial role in growing the company after graduating in 2009 and becoming a partner in the business. As the company grew, Caleb took on more responsibility within the company and filled every role to help his dad in furthering the business. Starting with mowing lawns, then running the installation crew and finally focus on building and managing the company, Caleb has consistently grown his skillset and grown to love the business side of landscaping. The first five years of Caleb managing the company brought many hurdles and slow growth, however he learned from every struggle and brought into the successful, multi-faceted organization that it is today.

Bushmen Landscape Professionals bought a building in 2014 as a permanent location in Lewistown which they use to operate the business, store bulk materials and showcase their work. Most recently, they added a satellite location in State College with plans in the near future to have a showroom there as well. Today the company has grown to over 20 employees including office support, sales and job managers with multiple installation and maintenance crews based out of Mifflin and Center County, as well as doing business in surrounding counties.
