Why should home organizing only be inside? John Schott focusses on landscaping, outdoor organization and hauling. He is a Super Service Award Winner and services a 15-mile radius of downtown Indy.
He noted on his blog, “I have been in the lawn, landscape, and horticulture field for over 15 years. I started working at a local Southside greenhouse when I was young and quickly discovered I had a passion for the outdoors and nature. I enjoy working with my hands and getting dirty! A few years later I began working with another small business owner who provided lawn and landscape services. I worked with this company for three years and realized my calling in life. I purchased my own “old” pick up truck, trailer, and mower. And as they say, the rest is history!”
