Our Story

From Mowing Lawns to Managing Commercial Landscapes

TruScape LLC, founded in January 2020, began as a collaboration between two passionate entrepreneurs, Jimmy Patterson and Shane Covalesky. Both had previously navigated the challenges of starting their own lawn care businesses, learning valuable lessons along the way.


Their meeting through a national lawn care Facebook group sparked a partnership that would soon become a beacon of quality and professionalism in Western, PA. TruScape was born out of a shared vision to provide unparalleled customer service on a small scale. But something extraordinary happened as the company began to grow.

As TruScape connected with larger entities and listened to the needs of the community, a new aspiration emerged. The small-scale operation transformed into a mission to scale excellence, to reach more homes, more businesses, and more lives. The goal was no longer just to serve but to become a household name synonymous with quality, integrity, and beauty in lawn and landscape services.


In February 2023, the company evolved once again as Shane Covalesky pursued other paths, and Jimmy and his wife, Leah, became the sole stewards of the TruScape vision. This transition marked a new chapter, but the core values remained unshaken.

Today, TruScape stands as a testament to what passion, commitment, and a relentless focus on customers can achieve. From a Ram 1500, a trailer, and a single zero turn to a thriving enterprise, TruScape's growth is not just a business success story; it's an inspiration. It's a promise to every customer that no matter how large we grow, our dedication to you remains at the heart of everything we do.
