The Roundup -

From Raking to Stonework,Your Local Landscaper is Here to Help


Curtis Romeo tilled and hauled dirt to install this flower bed; additionally, he drilled steel pins through the railroad ties to keep them from slipping and transplanted the three lilac bushes.

As the weather warms, business begins to pick up for landscaper Curtis Romeo who knows that once summer is in full swing, he will be extremely busy throughout the area. Romeo grew up in Trinidad and moved to Florida in 2009; in 2010 he made his first visit to Eastern Montana to visit family and friends and for the next few years would commute back and forth between the two states. In 2013, he permanently moved to Fairview, MT.

Romeo worked for a landscaping business for four years before relocating to Montana; once here, he began doing yard work for family and friends and working under Jeremy Jensen, who specializes in underground sprinklers, ground leveling, grass seeding, and sod work.

"Everyone likes the job that I do and thinks that it looks good when I'm finished. People were telling their friends and neighbors that they liked the work I did and giving out my number," said Romeo of how his business began to grow via word-of-mouth. "I try to work to suit everyone so they are happy with the job and they'll be repeat customers and I work fast. I like to get a job done so I have time to take on more work."

Landscaping services Romeo offers apart from Jensen include general yard cleanup such as mowing, raking, edging, pulling weeds, and cleaning up fence lines. Additional services such as small/medium tree trimming, tilling garden beds, trenching by hand, hauling dirt, putting in new garden beds, and planting and transplanting bushes, shrubs, small trees, and flowers are also available. Romeo even does stone work such as patios and walkways and, when the work is done, he hauls any leftover debris to the dump at no additional charge.

Romeo did the stonework for this patio last summer.

Both he and Jensen are willing to travel and have worked in Wolf Point, Miles City, Glendive, Fort Peck, and into North Dakota in addition to the surrounding Fairview and Sidney area. Romeo's rates are $40.00 per yard for mowing and edging and $35.00 per hour for more involved projects.

During the colder months, he works at Sidney Sugars and even then prefers to be outdoors running equipment rather than inside the factory, but does admit that he's ready for nice weather. Anyone interested in landscaping services can contact Romeo at 727-470-7535 or Jensen at 406-489-1186.

"I love to be outside. I grew up outside helping my grandfather on his farm and working hard. This is a nice area and I enjoy helping people," he commented. "Once you find a job you like, you've got to stick with it."
