THE MAINSCAPE STORY
Mainscape, founded in 1980, has grown into one of the leading landscape management companies in America. For over 15 years, Mainscape has consistently ranked in the Top 100 Companies by Lawn and Landscape. The company’s strengths and successes are centered on partnering with the customer to provide the highest standard of customer satisfaction.
Mainscape started as a campus ministry project in the 1980s by David Mazanowski. He was a student at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. It was summer break, and he needed something to do. That’s when he started cutting lawns. And that’s how he got into the business.
After about 20 years of hard work and respectable growth, David felt like it was time to recruit fresh ideas and talent from inside and outside the industry to take Mainscape to the next level. His strategy paid off, fueling the explosive growth we’ve experienced over the last 10-15 years, taking us from about 8 million dollars in annual revenue to 75-million. Today, we’re the largest privately held landscape maintenance and snow removal services company in the United States. Nationwide, we have about 1,100 employees maintaining more than 35,000 homes and multi- family units for HOAs, as well as large corporate campuses and military bases.
Mainscape is big enough to serve you, yet small enough to know you! By believing in small business values, Mainscape strives to create long-term, successful partnerships with our customers.
At Mainscape, We Live By Our Mission
Every day, we are committed to expressing our mission through four core values:
We recruit and develop the unique talents of our team members so that they take ownership and take care of our customers like it’s their own business. We promote from within whenever possible, because it helps us keep experienced staff who embody our mission and values. For example, our current vice president of the Florida region started in the field, managed his own site for 15 years and continued being promoted from within before taking his current role. This model creates continuity for ourselves and, most importantly, our customers.
Our long-term relationships are built by empowered employees who respond to our customers’ needs and act appropriately. We consider ourselves a part of your team.
Growing companies are good companies. Employees grow by taking on new responsibilities, learning new skills and achieving new certifications. When our employees feel satisfied and appreciated, they excel at their trade, which results in the success and happiness of our customers.
We conduct business in a responsible manner and focus on the future, not the short-term. From profits to the environment, we care about sustainability.
Our headquarters are located in Indianapolis, Indiana, with locations strategically spread across the United States. We have a particularly strong presence in Central Indiana, the Carolinas and Southwest Florida.
Our services vary from state to state. For example, in Michigan we manage a large corporate campus, while in Florida we manage mulitple large HOA’s. In several other states, we’re maintaining military bases.
Over the years, we’ve become experts at what we call single-site mobilization. That means we’re able to go into a new state for a new customer and quickly get their site up and running. We’ve even completed a successful single-site mobilization in Alaska for a single customer several thousand miles away.
Much of our mobilization success comes from our strategic transition plan designed to create smooth transitions from your previous landscaper to Mainscape. At Mainscape, National coverage means expert services, communication, and partnerships.
WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY
“In the midst of our insanity today, I wanted to let you know that I toured the Panattoni owner’s rep through their properties today. He could not say enough about the landscaping at City Center. Please accept my sincere thanks and please pass that thanks on to your staff for the great job they are doing out there.”
“I just want to give a big thanks to all involved on the great job being done on the lawn, plantings and tree maintenance being done here! I can’t believe the amount of work being done with no “leftovers”. They are clean, precise and so efficient! It’s fun to watch them work so skillfully!”
