In 1970 Lawn Maintenance Service was launched (two push mowers, used and a pickup truck, also used). The company incorporated in 1974. The company name leaves no question as to its purpose...
In 1981 we purchased a greenhouse located on 15 acres in Hampton Twp., (close to Pittsburgh PA). The company has developed into four divisions with b/w 40-60 employees. Most of our customers refer to us as LMS or LMS Greenhouse & Nursery. We are a full service landscape design, install and maintenance operation we grow our own crops (annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs) out of our greenhouses and nursery. We also resell plant material to the general public; plants we purchase for resale are from well established farms located throughout the country. OUr garden center has a retail store selling a full line garden goods and garden related items. The center has a 'country' feel to it, it is a real growing operation, meaning our retail customers shop and purchase items right off the benches the plants were grown on, not like the big box stores gardening area.
