About Us
Red Shed Landscaping was started in 2003 by Mat Prather, a long-time resident of Forest City.  During childhood Mat developed a true passion for landscaping while growing up in the garden.  He then went on to receive a Landscape, Greenhouse and Nursery Management Degree from Kirkwood College.  The combination of his knowledge and experience, along with a love for creating outdoor living spaces makes for a professional and beautiful finished project. 

Nature can take a toll on the landscape but with our commitment to quality and doing things right the first time, we ensure the work will last for many years.  Another of the many principles that we conduct our business by is "details make the difference."  From a small job to a large job they all get the same attention to detail.   

We work closely with our clients to actualize their ideas and ensure that they have a role in the creative process every step of the way.  Our business can provide you with full service from beginning to end, however, if you would like us to do only a portion of the landscape we can work with you to best meet your needs.  We serve within an approximate 30 mile radius from Forest City, IA.  

We are an insured and registered contractor with the State of Iowa.
