Our Core Values
We see life as a journey towards becoming our best selves. Learning is fascinating. It sparks our curiosity and leads to passion. When we learn and grow, we naturally take better care of ourselves, others, and the environment. That’s why we consistently seek out opportunities to evaluate ourselves and our company, to improve upon what we’ve already learned from 39 years of caring for people and land around Fort Wayne.
In addition to creating aesthetic landscaping around your home, we use predominantly native plants in our restorative landscapes. Native plants attract wildlife and allow you to interact with nature in your own yard. We strive to add abundant beauty, but most importantly, to improve the health of the environment in and around Fort Wayne. Beauty is not just a visual aesthetic but is also found in doing generative work like restoring good health back to the land. “As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.” -Robin Wall Kimmerer
Our responsibility is to care for people and the land. When we restore health to the land, a yard becomes a place of well-being for our customers and for local wildlife. When we invest in our employees with education, good living wages and benefits, providing a vision for future growth and opportunity, hosting regular cookouts, and taking educational field trips, we empower them to be their best selves.
“One can love only a few things in life, and it is the things we love which take our whole interest and out of which we can bring forth the best we have.”
Learn from the Natural World
We simply enjoy the process of learning. Learning is fascinating and energizing. Our work helps to bring others into the exhilarating feeling of learning something new when they experience the natural world around them.
Connect with the Natural World
We are burdened that most in America have forgotten their connection to the land. We believe it is our mission to help others see the beauty that comes out of caring for land and reconnecting with nature.
Sustain the Natural World
In all of our projects, we refuse to use any plant that compromises the health of the environment. We strive to only use practices that encourage biodiversity. Our work in many customers’ yards helps to create habitat, invite nature, and bring peace to neighborhoods around Fort Wayne.

Meet Jay Rozelle
Owner and Founder of Rozelle Lawn & Landscape
Hi there! In addition to all things landscaping, I am also an environmental educator who is passionate about helping people reconnect with nature. So often, we go to visit places like nature preserves and state and national parks to enjoy beauty and to feel refreshed. The problem is, most built landscapes around Fort Wayne do not provide the substance we need for beauty, for our good health, and for the health of the environment. It is my hope that in serving you, you learn about the importance of caring for the environment and will begin to make small changes in your yard for beauty and biodiversity to thrive.
“Art must be a guide, a leader, in the evolution of mankind toward a higher spiritual goal. None of the arts is more able to do this than that of the garden. It is a living expression of peace and happiness, and therefore a great influence in the forming of a people.”
