A Cut Above the Rest

Last month’s issue of Medina County Lifestyle magazine saw JTS Landscaping win our Readers’ Choice Award for Best Landscape/Lawn Care business in Medina County. This month, we take a closer look at the successful business with owner Joe Pavlovicz and his sister and office manager, Kristin Bishop, to see what it is that sets them apart from the rest.

JTS Landscaping has been serving the area for nearly 25 years now, and Joe says he has many of his original customers and even some of the same employees he had when he started the business in 1994.

“You know you’re kinda doing something right if you’ve had customers and employees who have been around for that long,” he says. 

“Kinda doing something right” may be a bit of an understatement and is definitely a sign of Joe’s humility when talking about his company’s award-winning work. JTS has been recognized for its outstanding work and service by some of the biggest names in the industry.

“We’ve won several awards from the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association and have been recognized by Unilock’s Awards of Excellence program as well. Unilock is the premier paver manufacturer in the area and even in the Northeastern United States and Canada, for that matter,” Joe says. “They really have a product that is set apart from the others as far as quality and design goes, and they are always coming out with new stuff and are on the cutting-edge in the industry. We are an authorized Unilock contractor, and our installation process has received several awards and recognition over the years.”

Working with quality products is only part of the equation though when it comes to providing excellent work for JTS customers.

“We have a long-standing tradition of continued education and training for our employees,” Kristin says.

She says that it shows in their work, and customers come to rely on advice and tips from their employees on how to keep their yard and landscaping looking great.  

As JTS has grown and expanded over the years, so have the services the company offers. What started out as a small landscaping company planting trees, shrubs and flowers for customers has blossomed into a business that provides hardscaping and outdoor living spaces, lawn maintenance, snow removal, water features, outdoor lighting and holiday decorating services as well. The outdoor living spaces and holiday lighting services, in particular, are a couple of really hot and trending aspects of their business that has helped grow the company too.

“It’s a great sign of the economy right now that these services are so popular, and we are seeing more and more people who want them,” Joe says.

“I’m really excited about the holiday decorating part of the business,” Kristin says. “It’s my ‘baby,’ so to speak. We install top-of-the-line, commercial-grade-quality lighting for our customers … then when the holidays are over, we take the lights down and store them for the customer as well.”

“You’ve got to really love what you do to have your work shine through and to also enjoy it while you’re doing it,” Joe says.

It’s comments like this from both Joe and Kristin as they talk about the past, present and future of the company that you realize their passion and excitement for what they do is the very quality that drives their business in the right direction. It’s no wonder why our readers have chosen JTS as the best in the area!
