Meet Arborscape — Your Westchester Property Maintenance Professionals

80% of our employees have been with us for over ten years. Our people stick around because they enjoy their jobs, and it shines through in the service our customers experience every day.

We have a culture within our organization that’s different than many of our competitors. Throughout the rough economic climate of the recent recession, Arborscape managed not to lay off a single employee. We came together and did what was necessary to keep the team together, and we survived.

It’s a culture of caring about each other, and it comes across in everything we’ll do for you.

A Conversation With Stefan Karlson, Founder

Stefan Karlson - Arborscape Founder Stef, tell us about yourself and how you got interested in landscaping.

“I love what I do… My mother and father were Swedish immigrants and avid do-it-yourselfers, always working in the garden and at our house.

So, I grew up working with my folks with dirty hands and knees. It was never a chore when my father asked me to mow the lawn; I just liked it. I love working outside.

Did you always want to be a landscaper… did you go to school for it?

I worked my way through college, employed by landscaping companies. I graduated from Rider University with a Finance & Marketing degree. I was actually headed for Wall Street, and then I derailed myself. I just couldn’t do it… it just wasn’t my path. So I followed my passion for landscaping, and here I am today.

So what do you love about landscaping?

To take a property and completely transform it and get that wow factor… I love doing that. Every morning I wake up, and I’m excited about doing this type of work… with this company.

I like people and enjoy the relationships I’ve cultivated over the last 20 years with my clients and employees. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living.”

Stefan is also certified by Rutgers University and the New York Botanical Gardens in Horticulture and Landscape Design and licensed by New York State for Pesticide Application and Arboriculture. He’s also an ISA Certified Arborist, CT Certified Arborist, and CT Pesticide Application Supervisor.
