I've just started using Master's Lawn Care, but they did an initial cleanup on my yard and I am very happy with the results! They did a lot of work to cleanup my back fence, which had become overgrown by unwanted plants and even a bamboo trying to creep into my yard from a neighbor's. The flower beds are starting to become more defined, and I'm looking forward to seeing how my yard continues to improve with their service...

We used The Master's for our landscaping, irrigation, and yard lighting projects. Rusty was personally involved in the planning of each project and recommended details based on his experience, which was greatly appreciated. Each project was completed within the estimates provided and was completed in a timely manner. Our house and landscape look absolutely stunning and we highly recommend Rusty and his staff for your...

We hired Masters last year for our lawn applications and couldn't be happier! We were using Trugreen to fertilize our lawn for years, but constantly felt like we were spinning our wheels. They always wanted to upcharge us for all kinds of different services, yet we weren't seeing very good results from the applications we had already paid for. Now, with Masters protecting our lawn, we have been seeing consistently better...

There is so much more to having healthy grass than just cutting it. You need to treat it for bugs and weeds as well as the proper watering. His team educates you on those items, and then shows you amazing results. You can't find a better lawn care company!

TMLC is great! The whole company is fantastic to work with. They are responsive and their work speaks for itself. Any yard, landscaping, or irrigation needs can be met by them!

Matt Carillo, Atty.

I highly recommend The Masters Lawn Care! We've been lawn maintenance clients for several years and also recently had irrigation work done and a large landscaping project completed. Everyone from the office staff to the crew members are awesome to work with, each person I encounter always makes sure all concerns are addressed and everything is taken care of with attention to detail. Very pleased and highly recommend...

I came home Thursday and found Joe (lawn fertilization technician) pulling weeds in my grass. I asked him why, and he said the product he used did not kill them and he did not want to waste more time and money on a chemical that didn't work. Now that is dedication! He does such a great job on our lawn!

The Master's Lawn Care never disappoints! They have been providing lawn care at my office for year or so. All of the guys are very professional and their attention to detail is second to none. They even go above and beyond the normal service. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a quality job!
Jes Odom, Farm Bureau Insurance
Frustrated by my own ill-informed efforts, I connected with TMLC and the team has transformed the property. Judy and I couldn't be more pleased. Moreover, they are always responsive to questions, and the result is a sense of trust that frees me up!

The Difference Between Scarcity and Abundance

I’ve been reading Steven Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People again, and I am really soaking in the concepts that he talks about of scarcity and abundance.

Here is what he says about scarcity: “Most people… see life as having only so much, as though there were only one pie out there. And if someone were to get a big piece of the pie, it would mean less for everybody else.”

At the opposite end of the spectrum we have the abundance mindset. Here is how Covey describes it: “The Abundance Mentality… is the paradigm that there is plenty out there and enough to spare for everybody. It results in sharing of prestige, of recognition, of profits, of decision-making. It opens possibilities, options, alternatives, and creativity.”

Stepping away from a focus on scarcity and cultivating an abundance mentality is a challenge. It’s one that I struggle with literally every day. It’s easy to focus on the things that I...

Rusty's Top 10 Gainesville Landscaping Plants!

Often times, when folks find out what I do for a living, one of the first questions asked is “What is your favorite plant?” or "What plant would you use here?"  Of course, being somewhat of a plant nerd, that can be a tough question to answer! The answer may vary depending on what is currently blooming, what type of soil or sunlight your yard has, or even a new and exciting plant variety was recently released!

And to be completely honest, I’m not entirely sure that I could pick just one. They all have different strengths and weaknesses. What I have put together for you, instead, is a list of ten of my favorite Gainesville landscape plants. These are my favorites for a combination of factors including how well they do in our particular climate, lower maintenance, drought tolerance, overall beauty, colors in bloom, and general resistance to issues like pests and disease. If planted in the right spot in your yard, they are almost guaranteed to do well in any...
