Family-Operated Landscape Company Starts 42nd Season
Lawn Specialties, is one of the oldest established lawn-care business in the Portland-Metro area, and is
celebrating 42 years Established in 1972, John L. Keller (owner/operator) began providing full-
landscape services to local residential homes and businesses.
For the past 10 years Lawn Specialties has been operated by father and son, John and Jason Keller .
John and Jason run their own service vehicles and currently can be spotted servicing yards in the Portland Metro Area.
Lawn Specialties originated from Johnís high school job and in 1973 developed into a family-owned
business when his wife, Jeanie, managed the accounting and in-home office. Jeanie continued to help
over the years while also caring for their four children. The business evolved into employing each family
member at various times - whether in the office or out in the field.
As business grew in the 80ís, John carried a crew of eight employees with four service vehicles. But in
1992 he scaled back personnel to ensure that his personal high-quality standards were met for each job.
John Keller has been in the landscaping trade since 1966 and, in that time, has hand-mowed over 50,000
