Meet Sam And Natasha

How it all started

Back 40 Landscaping took shape in 2013 when owners Sam and Natasha Maerz started helping homeowners improve and maintain their outdoor space. Sam has a true passion for lawncare, and this affection has brought him to want to provide a solution to homeowner’s problems, helping them regain their property, and enhancing the look of their space.

We strive to give our customers a different experience when it comes to working with a contractor. Our main focus when it comes to working with you, is to make your experience the best as possible. We find out what is important to you, and implement your goals and dreams for your project.

Communication At Its Best

Our open communication with you gives you peace of mind that we will show up when we say we will, you will be informed of any changes or issues that may arise, that your finished job will last, and most importantly, meets your expectations.

We care about your property as if it was our own, and protect your investments by using plywood roads so that our machines do not damage your existing landscaping. At the end of your project your space looks as if we were never there.

Back 40’s aim is to create spaces that will last for a lifetime, while giving you a custom experience worthy of remembering.

People Before Projects And Quality Before Quantity

Great experiences are never routed in the project itself. More important is the relationship, and the service before, during, and after the project.

What you value in your project is more important to us than anything else, so we pay great attention to your needs, wants, and desires, and always aim to bring them to life exactly as you want them.

Our entire philosophy in life is based on smart long-term investments. Our projects reflect this core principle, both in their function, and, more importantly, in their long-lasting design.

We have found over and over again that quality-built landscapes continue to put a smile on your face years after they were constructed, and we promise to always be pushing and exceeding your expectations.

The Story of Our Logo

We chose the name Back 40 Landscaping because it’s a throwback to older days.

Days where value and quality were in greater supply than today. We feel like it reflects our simple down-to-earth way of working with our clients.

Your Dedicated Team
