Clinton LaQuadraLandscape Designer
Clinton LaQuadra has always had two major loves in life, nature and building. From a young age Clinton began working in construction with his Dad and Uncles and eventually ended up working at a plant nursery. Clinton continued at the plant nursery for the next 10 years, working under professionals with 30+ years of experience in different arenas of landscaping who taught him about different species of plants, how to care for them, and the art of landscaping. Clinton is grateful for all the opportunities he has been presented with throughout his career such as designing backyard vineyards, drought tolerant gardens, exotic-species gardens, organic home vegetable and fruit farms, zen gardens, putting greens, and the list continues to grow every year!
When Clinton is not working on landscape designs, he can be found out spending time around nature with his kiddos either camping or visiting museums and local farms.
For Clinton, designing a garden is just as much fun and unique as the people he gets to meet along the way. Everyone has a great story and he enjoys creating the garden that fits that story.

Tracy SchmidtCustomer Service
Coming to Lombardo Landscaping with many years of office experience in a variety of offices and programs has taught me to adapt quickly while still keeping the Midwest customer service ethic, where yes the customer is my priority. When I interviewed with Matt at Lombardo I could see that the customer experience is important to his organization and that we would be a good fit. Although viewing the finished dream is important I believe how our customer is treated from start to finish is equally as important. I’m excited for the possibilities here at Lombardo Landscaping and thank everyone for the warm welcome.
