In 1984 John Viola founded Viola Lawn Service and Landscaping LLC. It all started with truck, a mower, and a dream. John began residential lawn and snow maintenance around Wethersfield Connecticut, where he worked out of his parents garage. Four years later, he moved the business to Cromwell, where it has remained ever since.
As business began to grow, John began to branch out and provide more services for his clients. We currently have three full time maintenance crews that service all our residential and commercial property needs. We also have two full time installation crews that handle all of our design/build projects. There is no job to big or too small that we cant handle.
Over 30 years later Viola Lawn service and Landscaping LLC remains a family owned and operated business. There are now two generations of Viola's that work in the business.
The oldest son, Joshua, graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2011 with a degree in landscape architecture. Joshua handles all the design work as well as manages the hardscape division.
The youngest son Jay, manages the landscape maintenance division. His attention to detail is what helps us provide our clients with well managed and well maintained properties.
From a young age the boys could not wait to start working alongside their father in the business. They worked weekends, school breaks and vacations to learn everything they could about the business and the craft. They both now work full time in the business and continue to grow and learn to help grow the company and provide our customers with the highest level of service possible.
