Addition is the second contractor in New York to partner with Pittsburgh firm.

The reach of the LandOpt Contractor Network has extended into Wappingers Falls, New York, with Lehigh Lawns and Landscaping becoming the second Powered by LandOpt Contractor in the state of New York.

With a goal of achieving their next growth milestone, Lehigh Lawns and Landscaping owner Alan Lehigh, chose to join the LandOpt Network in part because of the streamlined processes, employee development and training programs offered by Pittsburg-based LandOpt.

“Systems will make our business more predictable and allow our staff to focus on what they do best. The unique skills, knowledge and abilities of each individual team member coupled with the continuous support of LandOpt will drive the future growth of our business” notes Lehigh.

A full-service professional landscape design, maintenance and snow firm, Lehigh Lawns and Landscaping provides property solutions for both residential and commercial customers in the Hudson Valley area. Lehigh admits that the growth and development of their team members is a key factor in their growth plans.

“LandOpt role definitions, coaching and training programs will provide a clear vision for every one of their career path,” says Lehigh. “We are most excited to join a peer network specifically for the landscaping industry for myself [the owner] and for my team as well. With the help of LandOpt, we are hoping to increase our revenue and place the right sales and account managers to focus on growing our most profitable services.”

In 1987, Lehigh founded Lehigh Lawn and Landscaping, with a simple mission statement: To deliver quality, responsive service with dignity and pride. From design to maintenance our goal is to surpass our client’s expectations.

Lehigh started much like many other landscaping owners – mowing lawns in his neighborhood in Wappingers Falls as a young man. He was drawn to the industry in connection to the earth and its cycles of rebirth and growth. Today, Lehigh Lawns and Landscaping is a full-service professional landscape design, maintenance and snow firm. They provide property solutions for both residential and commercial customers throughout the Hudson Valley. Lehigh Lawns & Landscaping utilizes environmentally-sound practices to enlarge the usable area and increase its aesthetic and financial value—always taking pains to preserve the beauty that nature put there in the first place.

According to LandOpt director of marketing and sales, Alison Blobner notes, “A plan is only as good as its execution. The steady growth of the Network is an indicator of the ongoing industry quest for more formal business practices that provide both predictability and accountability for business owners. LandOpt’s solution provides the path to move forward with confidence because they depend on the systems and processes- not the owner.”
