The Grass is Greener Here

New Castle Lawn & Landscape grows (literally) in Greater Reading

By Tricia Williams, VP of Sales & Marketing, New Castle Lawn & Landscape

New Castle Lawn & Landscape began as a small side hustle in 1988 by two teenage boys on New Castle Drive in Shillington, Pa. The company grew and was officially named New Castle Lawn & Landscape in 1994. At the time of inception, President and co-founder Brian Cuccaro was walking the neighborhood mowing and maintaining as many lawns as he could handle storing equipment out of his, then business partner’s, parent’s garage. The company truly had a small and humble beginnings from a two-man crew and has grown to a $10,000,000 business employing nearly 90 individuals.

In 1999, the business purchased land in Mohton and built a small shop. Soon after, New Castle Lawn & Landscape became incorporated. We have not been without challenges. During the 2008 market crash, the business was forced to lay everyone off. 2018 was a pivotal year for us as we implemented a leadership team and The Traction Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) by Gino Wickman. The very next year, New Castle experienced its best year, which was followed up by being voted the Best Lawn Service Company in Reading Eagle’s Readers Choice Awards. Through retirements and leadership changes, the business has continued to grow.
