Who We Are

Leafy Landscapes was founded in 2007 by Rob Rist and Drew Henderson. Rob and Drew were roommates while attending Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach Florida. In a quest to earn extra money during their junior and senior year of college they began mowing lawns and started Leafy Landscapes. After graduating in 2008, both Rob and Drew decided to continue growing the company due to the downturn in the aviation industry during the last recession. As the economy crawled out of the recession, in 2013 Drew decided to continue his venture in aviation and joined the United States Air Force where he currently is a flight instructor for drone pilots and is living in New Mexico.

Rob has grown to have a true passion for the landscape industry and business. He understands the importance of education in the landscape industry and in Florida’s plant material. Rob takes this knowledge and educates his employees and clients resulting in a high quality end product that his clients are happy with and that the company can be proud of and confident in. Rob feels that in many situations, the landscape industry is lacking professionalism and great customer service. His goals are to give his clients individual attention and personalized care of a small company, but have the capabilities and assets of a large company. At, Leafy Landscapes, we strive to treat our customers as clients and not just customers. The company focus is on the overall look and health of the landscaping, not just a specific service we are providing. All of our employees are uniformed and trained to do their job properly. Our friendly office staff promises we will always answer the phone, and find an answer or solution for your question. If you have service concerns, someone from our staff will promptly meet with you and inspect your property needs. All of our employees are dedicated, hardworking people that have been equipped and trained to perform work in a correct and safe manner.

At Leafy Landscapes, we do the job ‘RIGHT.”

Happy Customers
Patti H.
We were very pleased with Leafy Landscapes and would highly recommend. Rob came out to see us the next day after our inquiry and spent a lot of time with us. He is very detail oriented and explained everything thoroughly.
Tracy A.
Very happy with the workmanship and customer service. I liked their work so much that I also hired them to cut and maintain my yard twice a month. Very reasonable price.
Peter S
They removed several trees and palmettos from a lot in Deltona. The crew was easy to work with and they did a great job.
Erik G
They came out super-fast, the ladies in the office were great. We will be using them for our regular lawn care!
Chris R
Signed us up and within one day they started service on our yard. They tamed the jungle that was the front and back yards on our newly-purchased home and we've hired them for on-going service.

Leafy Landscape installed 1,212 square feet of sod and are currently providing lawn maintenance for my residential property. The company owner Rob and his staff are very knowledgeable and thorough with their lawn care job quote and follow-up. Great communication and work ethic.
Maryellen H.
From start to finish the company was very professional; the Workman were very knowledgeable of the plants we were working with on the project. It made a big project fun.
Lisa D
The communication is excellent, and the quality of work is superior. I would definitely recommend them. They called me back immediately when just about every other company did not. Our yard was a mess and they transformed it.
Mark H
Rob is extremely understanding and knowledgeable!! Our yard went from scruffy looking to immaculate in a matter of two hours! THANK YOU GUYS for an awesome job!
Paul S
They are very helpful with advice to get our lawn in the best shape. Before them, it was in bad condition, it was almost cut to death! They are very pleasant and easy to work along with you and your lawn. Two months later, our lawn is thick and on a great road to being healthy through any kind of weather. We highly recommend them for any lawn and condition and or project. They are great team and an excellent company. The lawn crews are very pleasant and do a beautiful job too!
