We are committed to quality, professionalism and honesty.


For over 30 years, the Lehenbauer family has served the Billings and Laurel area’s landscape, nursery, irrigation and lawn care needs through their well respected local firm, Sylvan Nursery.Beginning in spring 2010, that heritage continues with the formation of a new company, Sylvan Landscaping, focused specifically on professional landscaping services for residential and commercial clients. The son of the founder of Sylvan Nursery, Steve Lehenbauer, and his wife Chris will drive this business. In 2013 Sylvan Landscaping changed their name to River Ridge Landscape Co. to reflect our new location in Laurel.
