About J&D Landscapes

A morning meeting of J&D Landscapes employees led by owner and CEO, Joe Pastor on a work siteJ&D Landscapes began as a side business for Joe Pastor in 2014. With a PT Cruiser, a trailer, and a lawn mower, Joe cut lawns for his neighbors and friends. It wasn’t long before he outgrew his day job and began running his company full time.

In less than 10 years, the company has grown into a full-service landscape maintenance and construction company serving clients in the Chagrin Valley and surrounding areas. Joe attributes the company’s reputation for providing high quality and value to his grandmother. She taught him the art of doing a job that people will appreciate. Today, J&D Landscapes continues to grow because our employees hold those same disciplines and values. We invite you to learn more about the company and the people who make it special.

“It was a delight working with Joe and his team. They do a wonderful job maintaining our lawn and all of our gardens. Joe answered all of my question throughly and always got back to me by the end of the day. We’ve decided to use them for snow plowing this winter, and we couldn’t have selected a better option. Very reliable. Wonderful work. Overall great company.”
