About Us

Our History

Back in 1984, in the small town of Skillman, NJ (near Princeton) Jarod Hynson started a small lawn maintenance service at the age of 13. By 1991 this company grew to become one of the elite grounds maintenance companies of Central Jersey. In 1994 the business was sold so Jarod could further his education at Messiah College, followed by several additional years of landscape field experience. By 2000, after much research, a decision was reached to launch a company that would truly exceed every customer’s lawn and landscape expectations.

Earth, Turf, & Wood has grown into one of the most well-known and respected premier landscape and hardscape firms in the central PA area. Instead of offering customers a huge laundry list of every possible property service, our total focus is on providing precision landscape and hardscape design & build from the basic patio to exquisite high-end residential 5-star design/build projects. This focus allows us to accomplish this exquisitely.

It is our goal to take every customer’s true landscape dream for their house and make it part of their home. No project is too simplistic, no dream too large, and no opportunity is missed. Together, with our experience backing us, our obsession for quality beside us, and our customer’s dreams in front of us, every project evolves into a true masterpiece.
