In 1987 when he was a high school junior, Joe Kozol started his lawn care company. He points out that, “I have the same customers I since the day I started. They’re not only customers. They are friends.”

That steady customer base points to reliable, consistent, fair service.

“Now I have four children of my own,” Joe said. “And I’m married, happily married.” Kozy Lawn Care has grown to 13 crews and about 26 employees.

Do you ever drive by a house that takes your breath away? Perhaps it’s just the thick, lush, green lawn. Maybe it’s beautifully cared-for trees and flowers.

Maybe it’s the right edging and woodchips in the flower beds. Maybe all these things set off the house just right. Maybe you could have the better curb appeal for your home.

It’s high season for Kozy Lawn Care, a long-time established Omaha landscaping business that is known for capable, responsible work. Kozy offers everything you need. You can still get the all-important mowing and fertilizing. You can also find everything else from hardscaping and retaining walls to boulder installation. You can get an even more polished, professional look for your own lawn.

I’ve been following a neighbor’s home undergo significant landscaping changes. It’s so much fun to watch. What a difference even a few improvements make! Five half-dead shrubs were pulled. Holes were filled in. Other shrubs got a good trimming. Beds were thinned and then rounded with brick edging. Some flowers and grasses were added. Mulch was added.  It looks great. It’s a night and day difference. The owners love their changes. The whole neighborhood is delighted.

A great yard adds significant value to your property. Any real estate agent will confirm that. In fact, real estate agents regularly encourage home sellers to bump up their marketability by making landscaping changes. Some very simple changes like borders, trees, sod work, or aeration can make your property easier to live with, healthier and more enjoyable.

Joe Kozol’s staff will be happy to help review your yard and offer suggestions.  They do it all the time. They do it well.  You may even see some of Joe’s children.

“My boys and girls are starting to work for me,” Joe said. “They’re appreciating what I do,” Joe said. “They’re learning to work and loving it. They’re great workers.”
