We Are Nextdoor Lawn and Landscape

Our Roots

Nextdoor Lawn and Landscape was started in Columbus, Ohio in Spring of 2019 by Franklin Ludwig. Our vision is to provide all of our clients a top-notch experience, superior service, and ultimate satisfaction that comes from a job well done.


We want you to know us on a first name basis just as we know you. Knowing who estimated, performed, and fulfilled your work is important to us and each of our team members are proud of their role and take ownership of it.


The Team

We are all on the same team at Nextdoor Gutter and Landscape - all of our team members are trained to perform each of our in-house specialty services professionally, safely, and accurately.
