Our Story

Family Owned & Operated

Company History

Local Lawn Care & Landscaping was founded in 2011 by Joseph and Jess Colonero. Joseph “Joe” is an active part of every aspect of the business, including pushing a mower himself. Joe began by cutting grass for neighbors and other members of his local community. After seeing the potential in the lawn services industry Joe began passing out flyers & pushing his mower down the street to each customer’s house.

While Joe works with members of his crew on properties, Jess works closely with clients to help manage accounts, organize paperwork and contracts, provide customer service & other important office duties. As a team and couple, Joe and Jess had no idea how great Local Lawn Care & Landscaping would grow to be.
