We want to inform any perspective clients that we are approximately a month to a month and a half out at present. Don’t get me wrong, we are still working new construction in and through the system in a timely fashion. New construction and tree sales may become our primary focus going into the future. We simply can not handle the shear volume of work being thrown at us these days. I field up to 90 phone calls a day at times and I simply can not perform my role as a designer when all i do is answer the phone. If you are one of these people that are not getting through to me, well this is why and I’m sorry for the inconvenience. The online customer contact is probably the best way to reach me these days and it saves a few steps in the process. We are also struggling to find and keep good help even though we pay some of the highest wages in Lincoln Nebraska. If Kasey and myself are going to do this type of work on our own, then we may just have to pass on some of the most labor intensive jobs. Our aging bodies, our family oriented company, and quite frankly our sanity are too valuable for us to tackle all forms of projects moving forward. At the same time, If you know of anyone with a great work ethic and the desire to have a career in this industry please send them our way. We would be willing to start a good landscape or construction foreman at 35-40k with additional benefits.

“Mark and the team did a great job on our backyard. We basically gave them a blank slate and a laundry list of problems. Mark came back with a plan that addressed every one of the issues, in innovative ways we would never have thought of on our own. In the end, Mark and the team gave us a remarkable backyard that we love to spend time in and we can’t recommend strongly enough going with Landmark Landscapes for all your projects.
We are truly raving fans of these guys and they’ve earned our return business. When it comes time for us to landscape our front yard, the only landscaping company we will work with is Landmark Landscapes—Thanks again.”
- Dave and Sarah Graff
Mark is a professional who makes sure you get what you are asking for in landscaping.

Last year I purchased a 100 year old home with a horribly sloped front yard. Not only was it ugly, it was impossible to mow. Mark came up with a beautiful natural plan. His crew came and made it a reality. The guys were fast, professional and cleaned up after themselves. Thank you for everything!!
– Cori Dorenbach
We would highly recommend Landmark Landscapes. Mark and his crew are timely, professional, and on budget!
“A couple of our neighbors used Landmark Landscapes and highly recommended them! The first project was our backyard and around our pool. It turned out gorgeous! We are getting raving reviews from golfers, neighbors, and family/friends. Now they are doing a couple projects in the front yard. We let Mark design and create “the look” and we “go with it”! When the team arrives, they work hard, are VERY polite and professional. Best of all, when they’re in the neighborhood, they’ll randomly stop by to spray for weeds and check on plant moisture, etc. Highly recommend this team!!“
- Ryan and Char Rohl
“When I decided I needed my old railroad tie retaining wall re-did, I was set on the regular retaining wall blocks. However, when Landmark Landscapes came to give me an estimate, Mark suggested using boulders as an option. I am so glad I went with Mark’s suggestions! It looks so natural and beautiful! My friends were awed by the transformations. Thanks Mark and crew for a job well done.”
- Kathy Frey
After building a new home and being worn down by various issues during the process and warranty period, we were uneasy about starting another project at our home.
The construction market can be difficult to deal with for people who expect their contractor(s) of choice to take care of them. That being said, Landmark delivered.
The Landmark crew did a wonderful job on our yard and helped us solve some serious drainage issues that we were left to deal with after our new home was constructed.
Landmark was professional, prompt and courteous. They did a first class job of keeping the work site (our yard) clean, quiet and friendly during the installation process and after.
Our project came in at the estimated price; which in our opinion, was very reasonable. The products (plants, rocks, mulch and trees) were great and the drainage system that was installed is the envy of our neighbors. Landmark even repaired our dilapidated old Rainbow play set!
If we ever need landscaping or drainage work in the future, Landmark will be our contractor. We couldn’t have asked for a more helpful organization.
Thank you for delivering what was agreed upon without any additional phone calls or warranty issues You have been terrific to work with.
Special thanks to Anthony and his crew for doing a great job!
- Jeremy and Kristy Coleman
Mark hooked us up with two very nice trees and did a great job on our drainage project. He was timely & very respectful of our established yard. Great work!
- Todd Blome
Mark and the Landmark crew performed our Spring cleanup and preparation of established planting beds. This included removal of leaves, placement of mulch and application of fertilizer . They were on site before the date that they had promised and performed the work in less time than they had anticipated. Their work was performed in an efficient and professional manner which resulted in a savings from the original cost estimate. It was a small project, but it was treated as if it were a large one. We were very pleased with the results.
– Linda Jones
My neighbors are always commenting on how pretty my yard looks, thanks to Mark and Landmark Landscapes! His suggestions of plant material, placement & design, transformed my little bungalow from dull overgrown evergreens to an exciting bouquet of (what seems like) everlasting blooms! Mark was a hard worker, very easy to work with and always conscience of my limited landscaping budget—so much so that we are now working together again to transform my backyard into the “Garden of my dreams”. I would highly recommend Mark, Kasey & his crew to anyone who wants professional results with a personal touch.
Scott & I have used Landmark Landscaping for 3 years now, from the beginning when we built our home Mark, Kasey and their crew have been absolutely awesome!! Their ability to be creative, problem solve, keep work area clean and neat made us very happy. We will continue to use them and highly recommend them to anyone that wants work performed professionally and have a outcome that makes your house stand out from the rest. Thank you Mark & Kasey for all you do!!
– Scott & Linda Loseke
“We have known Mark for several years, first meet him while living in Columbus. He did outstanding work, wonderful ideas, reasonable costs and completes the work as described and on time.
He recently added several trees and landscaping to the areas around our home. The addition of these items has brought several nice comments from our family and friends.”
- Larry Fritz
I am very impressed with the work Landmark Landscapes did for me. They removed and replaced all of my old landscaping in the front and back yards. I have no idea about plants! They picked everything out for me, and my yard looks clean and beautiful. The team was quick to respond and completed all of the work in just two days, and under budget. Based on my experience, I would recommend working with Landmark Landscaping.
- Jodi Miller
“Mark and his team were willing to tackle a big clean-up project by a 7 acre pond in town. There were MANY dead trees and volunteer trees that needed to be cleaned out. It was a rather remote location, but they found a way to clean everything out with minimal damage to the turf. Polite, came when they promised and finished under the bid price! Will definitely use them whenever I have a landscaping project for the neighborhood association or my acreage. Thank you Mark!”
- Chris Baker
I’m so happy with the work Landmark Landscapes did! I didn’t have a very good plan but I just told Mark what I liked and he took my ideas and transformed them into something I never knew was possible. I love the modern landscape design and how friendly the crew was. While working on the project, they noticed other things that needed fixing – like my fence and water damage to my house and siding and fixed it right then and there. I would recommend them 1000%! The price was very fair as well.
- Amber Smith
We’ve worked with Mark and his crew on several occasions. They always have great ideas on how we can improve on our lot while keeping our budget in mind. Several of our neighbors have asked who has landscaped our yard and I feel confident in referring them to Landmark every time.
- Mike Lefler
It was indeed a pleasure to work with Landmark Landscapes. From the very beginning working through the planning process for our landscaping project, Mark provided us with a first plan proposal which included computer images making it easier to visualize. It was great working with him as we made minor changes to arrive at our final plan layout. Communications, mostly through email, was very good. Kasey and his crew were very professional in the installation of all the plants, etc. and a pleasure to work with. Mark provided us with a very detailed estimate for the complete project, which was very much appreciated, and the final invoice ended up within $100 of his estimate. Thanks Mark & Kasey for a great job, from beginning to end. I highly recommend your company.
- Royal Walther
Mark came up with a landscape that was both unique and practical. We were pleased with his ability to incorporate some of our own ideas into the plan. In a matter of days, he and Kasey transformed our yard into a beautiful landscape. Just the way we like our home improvement projects, quick and painless!
Aaron and Megan Petersan
Mark has always been responsive and helpful with many different projects. We first used Mark’s services for our outdoor Christmas lighting. We were very pleased with the job he did and then asked him to work with us on landscaping projects. Mark has been great to work with!!
We highly recommend Landmark Landscapes. Before selecting a landscape design, we visited with several landscape companies. Of all the designs, Landmark’s was the most aesthetically pleasing, natural and creative. Additionally, it was the most affordable. The landscape material was top grade, and the project was completed in one full day.
Donis and Marge Petersan
Landmark Landscaping reconstructed our backyard pond. They arrived on time, performed the work professionally, and cleaned up the work area. At all stages of the project, they involved the owner, making sure the pond was finished as we envisioned. They did exceptional work, and kept the expense under budget.
- Andi Peterson
Mark, Casey and their crew have completed several jobs for us. They have an outstanding ability to create a natural look with berms and boulders that we desire. Their trees are always large, beautifully shaped and healthy, an outstanding value. They keep our budget in mind by installing the plan in stages. Several of our neighbors have commented positively and asked who did our landscape. I have referred several of my coworkers. We have been very happy with Landmark Landscapes and would not call anyone else.
- Rita and Gene Manhart
“It was a wonderful experience working with Mark and his team, from the design phase to the completion of the project. They are truly professionals in what they do and, for us, they’ve transformed a “generic” landscape into something special. Mark is an expert in designing and selecting the best trees and plant material, and creating beautifully integrated environments that are a pleasure to look at, and a joy to be in the middle of. The quality of work that Mark and his team delivers is simply outstanding. Thank you very much again!”
- Florin and Mihaela Bobaru
We are delighted with the work done in our yard by Landmark Landscapes! We needed a dry river bed installed on our property, and Mark’s design was by far the most aesthetically interesting as well as fully functional. His enthusiasm, energy, and attention to detail transformed what could have been just a simple project into a truly beautiful and exciting one. Not only that, the final cost came in less than was bid—a nice surprise. We certainly look forward to working with Mark again on future projects.
Mike & Judy Meagher
“I can’t say enough about Mark and his team at Landmark Landscapes. We had a new construction home and Mark not only drew a magnificent design, but answered all my questions along the way and helped find ideas for our budget. I was also very impressed with how efficiently Kasey and his team made the design come to life. We have received several comments from neighbors and friends and will definitely utilize their services again.“
- Justin and Kelly Reineke
What a relief to have someone else on the ladders putting up the Christmas lights. Mark and his crew even decorated our entry. Easy to work with, on time and fast. Thanks for a good job.
- Linda McCabe
I could have written last season how the landscape design creatively solved all the privacy problems we had noted, how the plant selection emphasized each season, how a large and experienced crew arrived and in just two days doubled the size of our patio, moved all the dirt to create both, berms and planting beds surrounding the entire backyard and the front of the house, and planted five large trees throughout the yard, or, how, a week later, Mark and a talented carpenter turned just an “idea” we had into a pergola that created an outdoor room. When they were finished, everything was so well done that not only did all the neighbors complement the work; even the former owner asked for a tour. However, the real test of any landscaping project is whether, or not, everything eventually blossoms the next spring. They have.
– Bob Tedway
“Thank you for all the hard work you have done on my farm. Things look Terrific. I am so pleased!”
I am very pleased with Landmark Landscapes. The plants are strong and healthy, and planted well. The crew completes the work on a timely basis, and leaves the site in great shape, and are pleasant when they interact with you. The design is very pleasing, and allows for future growth and expansion. I will call them for all my landscaping needs.
- Gail Steen
We first hired Mark to do some Christmas lighting for us and were very impressed with his professionalism and artistic talents. We hired him that first spring to do a cleanup of our landscape and have worked with him the past few years as our landscape needed to change. Mark gives accurate estimates and gets the work done on a timely basis. We feel fortunate to continue working with Landmark Landscapes!
Mark and Kasey installed an 80′ stone walk on a hill from the garage to the backyard of our home. It looks great. They have also installed a tree in a berm they developed in the front yard. It adds considerable interest to the front of our home. We expect to ask them to perform additional landscaping work this year. Mark and Kasey perform quality design and installation work in a professional and friendly manner. They are our landscapers of choice.
Mike and Connie Stefkovich
Mark and Casey not only do landscaping, but installed a new ceramic tile floor in my bathroom. They came out and gave me an estimate the same day I called and had the project completed the following week. They both were very professional and efficient and made sure they completed the floor the way I wanted. They are very detailed in their work. I would recommend them for any inside jobs and would use them again if needed.
- Linda Loth
We have been very pleased with our entire experience in working with Mark and the entire Landmark Landscapes crew. From estimate to completion, they were great to work with. They landscaped the entire yard, front to back, and the end product is beautiful. We received great quality, great service, and all for a great price. Thanks Landmark Landscapes.
- John Kasparek
We LOVE our backyard. What started as just a retaining wall and a few plants around our in-ground pool, turned into an awe inspiring relaxation place. I was always a person that thought I could do my own landscaping, it’s just plants…..but Mark and his ideas, WOW. He took our plan and incorporated his ideas and turned our backyard from ordinary to extravagant. Each and every time we sit outside, we can’t believe we actually live here and own it. It surpassed our expectations. One other thing, spend the extra money for the lighting. It truly is a minute cost considering the huge impact it makes at night. It adds not only to the functionality but to the WOW factor. Thank you, Mark and Kasey.
We are very pleased with the work Landmark Landscapes did for us. They installed sod and sprinklers in the backyard and did a clean up and maintenance of the entire yard. They did what they said they were going to do, showed up when they said they were going to, and were easy to get a hold of with questions and concerns. Overall a very good experience, and we would recommend them to anyone with landscape needs.

“Hey! We love it! Looks great! Will put the check in the mail!”
