My name is Jocelynn Lathrop and I founded Cypress Landscape & Design, Ltd. in 2006 while attending Penn State. I graduated in 2009 with a degree in both Marketing and Landscape Contracting (Design Option).
Over the years I have been fortunate to work on many impressive homes and gardens, however, Cypress Landscape is not a large company. I thrive on the one-on-one interaction with my clients and also enjoy getting my hands dirty (literally). I love the variety of my day to day work that comes from wearing the many hats it takes to run a small business.
My goal has always been to do great work at a fair and reasonable price.
One of my earliest memories as a little girl was making a new garden bed with my Mom and Grandfather at our home. It was an early spring afternoon and the air was cool but the sun was bright and warm. I remember how the light would reflect off the metal garden fork with every flip of the soil. We were standing in a row turning in black manure and peat into the topsoil. The aroma of fresh spring air whirled to my nose with each blow of the breeze. As our forks turned, the hard red soil transformed to an airy rich brown before my eyes. It was beautiful and...satisfying!
It's been over 35 years since I helped start this garden and I am fortunate that the satisfaction I derive from this work has never diminished. Even if you are not a gardener yourself, there is something about being in a garden that brings out our child-like appreciation and wonder for the little things. That is something I think we could all use a little more of these days!
"As the owner of a high end Residential Service, It's truly a pleasure to work with Jocelyn & her team at Cypress Landscape.. The experience she brings to my clientele is one of unique attention to customer service detail and her eye for color is always something exciting & delightful to experience."

A "Just wanted to take a minute and let you know how much Tom, Gracie and I enjoyed arriving home on Wednesday. We oohed and awed all over the place as we pulled in. I have never seen my home look more beautiful and that is in great part due to you! Thank you for all you do for us. The flowers are just lovely and the combinations you put together are pure art! Hugs and see you soon."
C "My family and I have enjoyed working with Jocelynn over the past few years. She and her company are very knowledgeable, responsive and consistently provide an excellent finished product. They listen to our needs and have the unique ability to balance interim projects while always working towards our long-term landscaping goals. Jocelynn's vision has helped turn our once stark (new home) landscape into a beautiful countryside setting."

"Before I met Jocelyn and started using Cypress Landscaping, I used to have very mixed feelings when winter turned into spring. There was a part of me that was excited to see all the spring beauty blooming and there was another part of me that dreaded dealing with all of the inferior to mediocre landscape companies out there.. Companies who never delivered great service or results, yet charged top dollar for their work product.
Working with Cypress has changed all of that. Jocelyn knows her business, has an incredible business model, and most important.. Jocelyn is on the job.. every time. So, with Jocelyn and Cypress Landscaping, I'm working with the person I really hired.. an expert who actually runs the company... And, best of all the process, service and results are awesome!
It's rare these days to feel good about the money you spend, but in the case of Cypress Landscaping I do!"
