We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality service available for property maintenance and landscape design.

After earning his Bachelor of Science in Horticulture and Turf Grass Management from the University of Rhode Island, Josh started his landscaping career in 1994 as a Project Manager for a Phoenix based golf course and landscape contractor. This experience led him to a position in Prescott where he was project manager on the development of the subdivision Stone Ridge from 1999 to 2010. At this project he helped build and design the golf course, parks and landscapes. This experience led him to open his own company and started as JC Clean Up in 2010 until he changed the name in 2016 to Prescott Landscape Professionals. Today, the company has grown from three employees to more than 30. Josh oversees all projects and enjoys developing lasting relationships with his customers while proudly serving his local community.

She assists in all areas of marketing for the company. Her number one job is raising the couple’s two children, Grace and Matthew and keeping them involved in community activities.

He also worked at Watters Garden Center for 8 years. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management Northern Arizona University, which is an asset for all customers wanting to create patios, gazebos, and other outdoor construction projects.

Originally from San Diego, Andy Roncaglia worked for many years in the golf industry. Owner Josh Crothers recognized Andy’s ability to work in a variety of positions, initially starting as a laborer, but quickly moving-up to his current position as Maintenance Account Manager. He is always eager to learn the industry and his position as a manager allows him to be in the field with the crew, but also work directly on accounts. He finds it rewarding to help clients make their yards look the best they can be.
Lori Forde owned her own landscape company in Austin, Texas for 15 years before joining the team here at Prescott Landscape Professionals. She retired early and moved to Prescott four years ago, but missed working with clients on beautifying their landscapes, so she decided to jump back into the business. Lori feels that the Prescott Landscape Professionals crew are a class act and is proud to be a part of the team. Her position as an Designer/Estimator puts her in the field everyday with clients where she helps them to envision what their new landscape will look like. She also presents the latest design ideas bringing new elements into the landscape using products such as steel and wood.
Miranda Vazquez is Prescott Landscape Professionals “Girl Friday”. She works in the office helping with everything from bookkeeping, purchasing and scheduling. Her background in the Army helps to keep things well organized and running smoothly. Always helpful and efficient, Miranda is that one team member we all count on to make sure our clients get the best in service possible.
Jake started with Prescott Landscape Professionals at an entry level position with an interest in learning all about the landscaping business. His interest and enthusiasm for the job quickly moved him from a landscaper to a crew leader, and then estimator. The experience he received in all departments has helped make his curiosity of landscaping into a full-time career. He is grateful for the on-the-job training that was afforded to him here at PLP. In his off time, he enjoys getting out in nature on his bike or trekking the backwoods of Arizona and California on his quad.
