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.

Same day free estimates

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

Steve Mansfield and his AMAZING crew just finished landscaping our yard. We sat down with Steve on a Sunday evening (yes, he came out on his day off!!), designed the concept of the yard, we went to his nursery on Tuesday and they finished the entire project the following Monday (it would have been sooner but it was over Thanksgiving weekend and they didn't work that Thursday). Steve personally picked out our Queen palms and put in the most beautiful triple Sylvester Palm we've ever seen. As other posts have stated before, he brought out almost double the plants used in the yard to ensure we had plenty of choices. They lay everything out in the beds before they plant so we had an opportunity to move things around to our liking. After everything was completed my husband and I have agreed that Mansfield Landscaping went WAY above and beyond or expectations. We live on a street that is highly traveled (across from the Charlotte Pool and mailbox) and so many people have stopped to tell us how beautiful it is. We recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone interested in working with a company that produces professional results and cares so much about his clients.

My husband and I had been driving around for weeks looking at various landscape jobs in the villages and found just one place that we both really loved. We happened to be looking through Nursery web-sites and in looking at the photo gallery we happened to see pictures of the house that we loved under Mansfield's Web site. So we decided to go to the nursery to see what trees they had and how their prices were...(after going to a couple of other local nurseries we were shell shocked at the price of palms!) What we found was a great relief! The tree and plant prices were very reasonable and looked much healthier than many we had seen at other places. Being complete novices to Florida plants we sat down with the owner, Steve, and he gave us a very thorough education on palm trees - so we felt confident in the decisions we were making. We had decided that we did not want to do the "FULL" landscaping job all at once and wanted to start with just the trees so we could then fill-in later as we decided on what we wanted to plant...Steve and his son Ron, then walked us throughout the selection and helped us decide on 9 beautiful 18 ft Palms which they gave us an excellent price on. We set up an installation date for later that week - and Steve called and said they could come a day earlier if that worked for us - which was great as we had company coming in the next day! Ron and a crew came out to do the install, finished the planting in one day, removed some bushes etc that we knew we didn't want and the end result is beautiful - it has changed the whole look of the house....we LOVE it! Even though this is only step one of our landscaping - we are certain that we are going to be using Mansfield for our future expansions!

What Others Say About Us

I recently had my villa landscaping done by Steve Mansfield and his crew. They worked hard for 3 days and did an excellent job. I am very happy with the job and everyone who has seen it has told me it looks great. I was quoted 20-30 plants but was given many more to make my property look great at no charge. I was so surprised when Steve called to tell me he was having my driveway, walkway and patio power washed so that the dirt from their work would be cleaned up. True to his word, he sent someone over to do the work and not only does my property look great, but he also cleaned the street where there was dirt from the rock piles. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have their landscape done immediately and done well.
