Our Roots

From 3.5″ to a Multi-Million-Dollar Company

From our roots to this “I had just started out in the business when a woman about 80 walked out with a yardstick and complained her grass wasn’t cut a uniform 3.5 inches. She stuck it in the ground to show me. I explained that our mowers were set to that exact height and that the natural unevenness of the ground prevented a precise, carpeted look. She grudgingly nodded, and as she walked away, I shook my head. It had been a long day. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought about how that was the market we should be after: the discerning client with high standards. And that’s how ArtisTree was born.”

Our Story From the Ground Up

roots In 1990, we put our roots down in Venice, FL, starting as a small, four-man mowing company and quietly blossoming into an award-winning landscape maintenance and design company serving Southwest Florida.

Today, ArtisTree is a respected authority in the green industry, working directly with community associations, property owners and luxury builders. A partnership with ArtisTree means you’ll have an entire cadre of experts — account executives, degreed landscape designers, technicians, crew members and office staff — all working together to preserve the beauty and well-being of your landscape. It’s how we honor our humble roots.
