Quiet Pride™

Landfare Ltd. has a definite vision for the outdoor living spaces we design for our clients. Part of that vision is that all of our work must enhance the esthetic of each client’s home. Our designs and all the elements we incorporate – water features, pools, spas, landscape – all work together to project the pride our clients have for their homes. We never create trendy or ostentatious designs that conflict with the home’s architecture and property.

While discussing this vision as a team, we agreed that we really project Quiet Pride™ in both our clients’ homes and our own work.

The Landfare Story

Landscape design wasn’t John Spayde’s first career choice, but it may be his destiny.

Growing up in Mansfield, Ohio, John was surrounded by lush, natural landscape. His family owned a wholesale nursery and tree farm where John worked during each summer. The nursery taught him as much about horticulture as it did about hard work and attention to details. John learned to appreciate the trees and shrubbery, valuing each for the seasonal beauty they brought to landscape design.

John’s mother, a talented member of the Kingswood Garden Center, nurtured her own flower garden and won many awards for her beautiful flower arrangements. John grew up surrounded by flowers, trees and garden design that worked in harmony.

Values Statement

We believe in team, togetherness and putting others first. We believe that alone we can
accomplish nothing of any value. We believe any organization that exists solely for itself is a failure. We believe we can find purpose beyond profit by living an honorable life at work and at home. By consistently practicing the following tenets we believe we can not only better serve our clients but also our families and our communities.

Nurture Relationships 

We believe that building and maintaining healthy relationships is both an essential work and a crowning achievement. If you place value on relationships and the people behind them, you will better understand life and find greater purpose.

Be Honest

There is no middle ground to this, you are either honest or not. Therefore, always do the right thing, particularly when no one is looking. Tell the truth, tell it early, and tell it yourself.

Embrace Selflessness

We insist that you check your ego and adopt a team mentality. Around here, we succeed as a team and we fail as team. Approach each day with humility and watch things work out for the better.

Promote Safety

There is no greater asset to any organization than its people. We must remain committed to maintaining a safe and healthy work environment.

Remain Teachable

We believe that learning is never a finished work. Take criticism, admit when you are wrong, be willing to change course and see opportunity when faced with failure, move
forward with boldness and you will be unstoppable.
