Lichtenberg Landscaping creates resort-style living in your own backyard.

Lichtenberg Landscaping specializes in making outdoor dreams come true. 

“People have ideas and dreams, but may not know where to start or how to put it all together. Our design expertise and quality-driven crew can bring those dreams to life,” explains owner and registered landscape architect, Steve Lichtenberg.

With more than 30 years in the landscaping business, Steve founded Lichtenberg Landscaping in Mason in 1999 with the mission to provide the local community with expert designs, exceptional service and competitive pricing. The company offers a wide scope of services including new construction, renovation of existing landscapes, grounds maintenance and complete backyard design and builds.

Steve is passionate about listening to his client’s ideas, adding his creativity and then designing and building their picture-perfect outdoor living space.

“With our education and experience, you get distinctive designs that are well thought out and built to last. Having a landscape design architect will ensure the project is executed seamlessly and done right the first time,” Steve remarks.

Today, people want more than a simple backyard patio. In addition to pools and spas, current trends in outdoor living spaces may include dedicated dining spaces, fire pits, bars, grills, water features, casual seating, outdoor kitchens or a combination of all of these. 

“Lighting, including LED and full color lighting controlled remotely, is also a big trend,” Steve adds. “It invites people outdoors and creates the ambiance and mood for entertaining and relaxing. It can also add an important element of security.”

In addition to the backyard creations, the company provides complete landscape designs and professional grounds maintenance for residential, commercial and HOA properties. Whether you need to rework, refresh or maintain your existing landscaping or want to create a multi-faceted outdoor entertainment and living space, Lichtenberg Landscaping provides  personal design services, quality materials and expert installations. 

“We visit the site, listen to your desires, give our input, do a site analysis, take photos and ensure what you’re looking for makes sense for the space. We create a full-scale plan with plants, materials, lighting, etc and tie all the pieces together. Then most of the building and installation work we do ourselves,” explains Steve. He adds, “I love doing the design work. I try to treat each project as if it is my own. I make it personal.”

Lichtenberg Landscaping has won numerous awards from professional organizations such as the Greater Cincinnati Home Builders Association and the Cincinnati Horticultural Society and has been spotlighted in local newspapers and magazines. They even appeared on an episode of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”.

Steve is a long-time Mason resident with family roots that go back 50 years in this area.

He reflects, “I am very grateful to be in such an amazing community. I try to treat everyone like family and give them personal service with respect and honesty. I have a dedicated core of employees who will do a fantastic job. We all take a great pride in the quality of our work.”

Lichtenberg Landscaping is in the business of making your outdoor spaces artistically pleasing, personal and livable. As Steve likes to say, “Let our imaginations bring your dreams to life.”
