Founded by current president Dave Buckel in 1985, Ideal Landscape Group started from a one-man operation in the early days. As demand for commercial landscape projects increased, Dave’s Lawn & Landscape Services decided to switch its focus from residential to high-end grounds maintenance services. After our capabilities and credentials steadily grew, the need arose to create a brand that our customers could identify with and one that could take us into the future. In 2003 we became Ideal Landscape Group and continue today to operate as one of St. Louis’ most trusted landscape management company. Ideal Landscape Group is based in south St. Louis County. We are a commercial landscape company offering professional landscape design, construction, and property maintenance services. Ideal Landscape Management partners with approximately 250 commercial clients annually to provide contractual landscape management services. Ideal Landscape Group is the parent company of Ideal Landscape Management, Inc. and Ideal Landscape Construction, Inc. BETTER FROM THE GROUND UP isn’t just a slogan it’s truly the standard for every employee at Ideal Landscape Group. From the receptionist who answers the phone to our account managers and laborers in the field, our employees seek to form and maintain honest partnerships with every client. We know that’s what it takes for you to believe in us and know that Ideal Landscape Group is truly the best choice – from the inside out and the ground up.
