About Us – McKinley Landscape LLC, Landscape Services for Home and Small Business

In business since 2013

Often I’m asked why did I name the business McKinley Landscape Maintenance LLC…? Sometimes there is a story behind a name so here is my story.

My middle name is McKinley, my son’s middle name is McKinley, my father’s name is McKinley and my Grandmother Petrina’s father’s first name was McKinley. They called him Mack. Mack is also my wife Erin’s maiden name.

I’ve been in the green industry since 1993. Since that time I’ve worked in higher education and finished a Master’s in Business Administration. My love for the outdoors continued so after leaving the green industry for a few years I jumped back in the business in 2013 starting McKinley Landscape Maintenance LLC. I gain satisfaction in helping clients find solutions that improve their property and could add value.
