Full Service Landscaping Construction

The Garden Path Lawn and Landscape Services, LLC, was established in 1997 by owners Chris and Ben Raines. This Hamilton-based company began as a simple lawn mowing service whose home was a small two-car garage in Lindenwald, Ohio. However, the company prided itself in its quality workmanship, relentless attention to detail, exceptional customer service, and a consistent, day-in and day-out, dedication to these ends. This passionate approach led to success and an expanding number of happy customers.

As the number of clients grew, so did the variety of services that the Garden Path was able to offer. Soon, a new facility was built to house the company, and its increasing amount of equipment. The Raines’ then began to pursue quality employees who shared their vision and the willingness to accept challenges, educate themselves, and get a little dirty. With a unique “we’re all chiefs, no Indians” task-management philosophy, Chris and Ben promoted their employees to talk and think about how their work could be improved. Again, success ensued.

Customer Reviews

Our reputation is based on experience, high-quality workmanship, creativity and outstanding customer service.

We love our patio! We really appreciate your attention to detail and your great ideas. We couldn’t be happier! Our neighbors, friends, and relatives have seen the patio and are so surprised at how the Travertine looks and how different it is from what they are used to seeing. Thanks again for your skills and design. I took some photos of your work. Use them on your website if you would like. What a difference between the before and after photos!!

Dear Chris, Rob and the rest of the gang! How can we ever thank you for the wonderful patio and deck that we now have to enjoy? There are no words to describe your professionalism and attention to detail that has made our backyard look so great! Please let us know if we can help in anyway to showcase your work. We look forward to working with you again in the near future for the next step of our projects.

In 2019, my wife and I contracted with Garden Path (GP) for three major projects – building a new Cabana in our backyard; building a new façade on the front of our house and completely updating the exterior of the house; and, completely re-landscaping both the front and back…We have enjoyed working with Chris and his team (really great people).

Garden Path does a variety of commercial work for us including a residential development, a homeowner’s association and commercial office building. They do outstanding work, including a total rework of the landscaping at our building in the fall of 2015. Gave it a totally different look and we get a couple of compliments every week. Better yet, there are no worries, it’s just “done.” Have referred them many times without hesitation.

John Kirsch/Hamilton OH

We’re very happy with the work that Garden Path Landscaping performed at our home. Chris created a unique landscape design that very much complemented our home’s exterior. The plants installed really differentiate our home from the others in the neighborhood.

I wish I had a before photo of my yard to illustrate this, but it was covered in weeds – the previous owner hadn’t touched it for years. My neighbor mentioned he uses GPL on his own land, so I called and signed up for 5 treatments/year. I noticed a difference at the end of our first Summer with them but was skeptical if the weeds would return. Next year, no weeds PLUS the lawn was thick and lush. I have also used GPL to leaf and branch removal (it is nice to have an end-of-season clean sweep). Overall, my experience has been great and I am the proud owner of a nice yard. Highly recommend.

We’ve partnered with Garden Path on several jobs and are thankful for their quality of work, ability to get things done in a timely manner and value. They have a great team of people who are talented and respectful. And they offer a large range of services that allow them to be a great fit for most jobs. I recommend them highly!
