The Beginnings

Native Las Vegas residents and second generation landscape contractors, brothers Mark and Billy Blackwell started BILMAR landscape in 1996, working out of a garage for the first couple of years. The company has grown significantly since, and now services over 300 HOAs, master plan communities and commercial properties throughout the valley. The brothers know that the key to their success thrives by implementing the simplest of business practices:

“Treat every customer the way you want to be treated!”

Structure the company around that statement with the ultimate goal of developing a company that flourishes with the culture of putting customer’s needs first. Billy and Mark enjoy creating value for their customers by implementing cutting edge and innovative business practices.

Hiring knowledgeable employees and cultivating them into leaders who understand the necessity of accountability, is one of the priorities in the company culture.

BILMAR’s mission is to truly provide “Service Beyond Expectations!”
