How We Got Started
As a native of Pennsylvania’s Main Line area, James Texada returned home after receiving his degree in Landscape Architecture and knew he wanted to pursue a career in residential landscape construction. After working in the field James saw a need for a more personalized product development, quality installation/management, and customer service. James took it upon himself to fill a growing need in his community and started his own company in 2001 and Texada Landscaping Inc. has been growing ever since!
Owner: James Texada, graduated top of his class at Louisiana State University earning the Dean’s Medal in Landscape Architecture. In addition, James won the ASLA Honor and merit awards, construction award, technology award and several other awards relating to his field. James is a true hands on owner, from meeting with clients, designing and pricing projects, acquiring project materials and project construction and implementation.
Landscape Architect: Lisa Pond, RLA, ASLA, received her Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) degree from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge which has an established international reputation as one of America’s leading and consistently top-ranked programs. She is a Landscape Architect licensed in the state of Pennsylvania and CLARB certified. Upon graduating from LSU, Lisa relocated to the Philadelphia area to work for a landscape architecture firm which specializes in master planning, recreational planning, land planning, community redevelopment and garden design. Lisa recognized her passion for residential design, specifically planting and hardscape design, and joined the design-build company Texada Landscaping, Inc.. As principal landscape architect she designs and manages projects from the initial design phase through to construction completion. Her vast knowledge in plants and construction has provided the highest quality of creative and diverse landscape designs and outdoor spaces to her clients for the past 20 years. She also works closely with other local Landscape Architects in the bidding and installation of local projects along the Main Line, Chester and Delaware Counties. Lisa is also a member of the property committee of the Riverbend Environmental Educational Center.
Operations Manager: Jessica Madden, joined Texada Landscaping in May of 2008. She earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Hospitality Management from Johnson & Wales University in 1996 – after working for some of the top names in the hospitality industry in various positions she decided to pursue a career that would offer a better quality of life. While still utilizing her accounting, customer service and organizational skills she went to work for a custom home builder as their Warranty Manager. After becoming a mom, Jessica, again decided to make a career change and has made Texada Landscaping her home. She wears many hats: scheduling, ordering, pricing, payroll, invoicing and billing. But her main concern is to make sure that our clients are taken care every step of the way and that no question or concern goes unanswered, no matter if it is the same day as installation or 15 years later.
