About Us

My name is Matt Mortenson and I started Mortenson Landscapes in 2018. I was first introduced to the landscape industry at the age of 16 and spent my summers in high school learning to build retaining walls and pavers patios. After graduation, I attended UNL and UNO where I majored in construction management.

I decided after two years of school that my true passion has always been to one day start my own landscape company and I would not be able to pursue my dream sitting in a classroom. I needed real world hands-on experience to be successful at my craft. I decided to quit school and I started working full time as a landscape laborer. Eventually, I worked my way up to a foreman and ran various landscape/hardscape projects.

After six years as a laborer and three years as a foreman I decided that I was finally ready to start my own company. It was NOT an easy road to get to this point and the hard part was just beginning. I applied what I learned from each company that I worked for and developed a business model that aligns with my values.

Quality craftsmanship, clear communication, and the best customer service in the industry are the pillars that Mortenson Landscapes was built on. I believe that the customer service and support that my clients receive after the project is complete is just as important as the project itself.

Project timeline depends on the overall scope of work as well as site access for equipment and material staging. During the design process, we will give you an accurate timeline for completing your project.
The owner will be working alongside the crew members on every project from start to finish.
We recycle all scrap concrete material. This includes all concrete surfaces that we remove to install pavers and scrap pavers from cutting. This material is hauled to a concrete recycling plant where it is ground up and turned into aggregate which can be used as base material for retaining walls and paver patios.
Plant material growth rates can widely vary. We create custom landscape plans choosing plant material based off of our clients needs. This could be the need for immediate screening or privacy around an outdoor living space.

We offer a 1 year warranty on all plant material from the date of install. We also offer a 3 year warranty on all hardscape projects from the date of completion.
Our landscaping process starts with getting to know our clients and their specific needs. We then create a custom landscape design based of off those needs and schedule your installation. We keep you informed during the installation process and answer any questions that you may have. We do a final walkthrough of the project upon completion and provide you with information such as plant material care. We are also available for support after your project is complete to answer any questions or address any concerns you might have.
