About Borst Landscape & Design

Borst Landscape & Design is a nationally recognized, award-winning, professional, full-service landscaping company in Bergen County, NJ. We offer services from site design plans by one of our design professionals to yearly organic lawn fertilization and maintenance programs to custom masonry.

Founder and President, Mark C. Borst, established the business in Wyckoff in 1989 on a part-time basis while earning his degrees in Landscape Architecture and Ornamental Horticulture.

Borst Landscape & Design became a full-time operation in 1993, and in 1995 the Organic program was introduced, providing a complete lawn care program for his clients.  Over time, the company earned its reputation as the best landscaping company in Bergen County, New Jersey.

As the client base expanded so did Mark’s vision to provide his clients with a full-service landscape company. With the introduction of the tree and shrub program and the continued growth of the design/build division, a new facility was purchased in Allendale, New Jersey in the fall of 2002. With the continued growth of landscape services and the introduction of Borst Organic “The Science of Nature” in 2007, Borst Landscape & Design has become a leading full-service landscaping company in northern New Jersey.

The Team

The Borst team is comprised of more than 90 employees, managed and directed by owner/president Mark Borst. Mark holds degrees in Landscape Architecture and Ornamental Horticulture and is assisted by three Field Managers who are all Certified Landscape Technicians.

A hallmark of Borst Landscape & Design is the fact that the company retains a vast majority of its employees, insuring clients a consistently high level of service and responsibility. It’s just one of many business practices that sets Borst apart from the competition as a premier landscaping company in Bergen County, NJ.
