About Mansfield Landscaping

A-1 Landscaping of Orlando, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Steve Mansfield. In 2006, it was renamed to Mansfield Landscaping, LLC to emphasize the family aspect of the business. 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. 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. From 2000-2007 we expanded into Lake County, working 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 2007, we started doing after market landscaping in The Villages, Florida as well as the rest of Central Florida. We created a world class nursery and outdoor showroom, and estimate that even though we had a hundred competitors in The Villages alone, 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.

Most jobs start in 3-4 days. We bring the showroom to you - complete in-home shopping experience!

We have samples of all rock, flagstone and accent wall material in our vehicle. Also, our 350-page color portfolio shows realistic size material; our trucks are also equipped with tablets to show you over 1,000 pictures of our completed jobs.

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 Others Say About Us

We are delighted with the beautiful landscaping work at our home. The workers were enjoyable to have at our home and the result is even better than we had hoped for. Now we see a gorgeous palm tree and other plantings. It is wonderful to walk in the front door and have our new view. It is a lovely walk through a garden. We couldn’t be happier.

Lee and Judy Jacobs

We just moved into our Village’s home last fall and had many expenses with new furnishings, but we really wanted to have at least a couple of palms now and did not want to wait another year until we could afford to redo our landscaping. After checking with a couple of other nurseries we were very surprised at how much lower the prices were at Mansfield Landscaping. The owner, Steve was very knowledgeable about where trees should or should not be planted. We were given as much time as needed to pick out and tag the exact trees we wanted on our own, but if we had any questions he was just around the corner to answer them. The trees are beautiful and of good quality. We look forward to working with them in the future to give our yard that professional look that we see so many of our neighbors have after using Mansfield Landscaping.

What Others Say About Us

We were very satisfied with the professionalism of Mansfield Landscaping. It was a delightful surprise and experience after having pursued this project with four other landscaping companies that did not measure up to Mansfield. They were attentive from first contact. We received a phone call back in under two hours after our first inquiry. All calls were handled in like manner, We had a problem with our irrigation and they promptly attended and fixed the situation. Price was held as quoted no ad-ons or increase for anything.

We received at least three follow up calls to be certain everything was to our satisfaction. It was a breath of fresh air. The house looks new again. We have drive by gawkers.
