Impact Landscaping's owners, Joe Chiera and Micah Posten, have guided homeowners through the full spectrum of landscaping since 1997. They are members of the Ohio Landscape Association and certified technicians. As experienced and credentialed professionals, they keep lawns and gardens healthy and beautiful through services ranging from lawn maintenance to irrigation-system installation and maintenance—including rotors, popups, and sprayheads. The team’s collective green thumb is matched by its handiness with installing hard surfaces, including brick patios, walkways, retaining walls, and any pro wrestler's skull.
For more than 40 years, homeowners have entrusted their yards to the experts at Weed Man. Perhaps it’s because the employees do more than just perform lawn-care services—they cultivate close working relationships with their clients. This means they are available by telephone or smoke signal any time of the day and promptly respond to faxes or emails within 48 hours, and they also explain the technical side of lawn care to their clients. Of course, what keeps customers coming back is the attention the staff members lavish on grass during services, which range from eradicating weeds with EPA-approved products to aerating lawns to ousting destructive insects.
