Building Beautiful Landscapes in & Around Ankeny, IA Since 2018.

Hi there! Welcome to ETCH Outdoor Living. We are a small business that's big on providing quality services and professionalism. Even though we first opened our doors in 2018, caring for lawns and landscapes has truly been a way of life for us. Our founder, Sam Rankin started working alongside his parents in the mowing industry at just 10 years old. This experience helped instill hard work and dedication into him at an early age.

In 2006, Sam ventured off into mowing lawns on his own and continued growing in his craft. In 2012, with the help of his parents, Sam started professionally mowing lawns with a used truck, small trailer, riding mower, and a dream. He also partnered up with his best friend Andrew Huseman and together, they took over one of the best neighborhoods in Ankeny, IA. With passion and a dedicated team of experts, ETCH Outdoor Living has grown into all it is today. Our mission is to provide exceptional lawn and landscaping services to all of our clients!
