JRS Landscaping

A State College landscaping company, JRS Landscaping strives to provide each and every customer with a unique and aesthetically pleasing design that is both long lasting and cost effective.

We work diligently and collaboratively with you to ensure that the result you get is what you have imagined. We are small enough that we can provide one-on-one attention for your project, but big enough to deliver serious results.

Our company was established in 2011 by Brian Stauffer, a Centre County native who has been working in the industry for over 15 years. A Penn State alum with a degree in Landscape Construction, he cultivated and cultured his skills while working for a commercial company in Washington, DC and several small, residential companies in Philadelphia.

However, Sate College landscaping is where his heart belonged, and he returned home to launch his own company. From that point, JRS Landscaping was born.
