About Us

Lightning is a full-service landscape contractor with two locations serving both the Kansas City and Lake of the Ozarks areas.

After working in the lawn care industry for more than a decade, Chris Edin formed Lightning Landscape & Irrigation in 1994 with the belief that there was a better way. Attention to detail, customer service, and dedication have fueled our growth.

In 1999 our growth led to a new 5000 square foot facility constructed in Shawnee, Kansas. In 2004 a Gravois Mills, Missouri location was opened to serve customers needs around the Lake of the Ozarks.

Our team has a wide variety of experience to handle all aspects of your landscape and lawn requirements. From initial design to installation, irrigation, and maintenance we can handle it all. Over the years, Lightning has worked with numerous plant materials, processes, and products and we attempt to utilize only what has been proven to work in your yard and landscape. This allows us to ensure your landscape and lawn will be healthy and beautiful now and in years to come.
