It all began...
When a young boy had the desire to mow grass. He started by mowing his grandparents’ lawn in Greenfields and within no time, he was maintaining all of the neighbors’ lawns as well. With the desire for more work year-round, Eddie soon offered snow removal service to the same clients. At age 20 and with 10 years of landscape maintenance under his belt, Eddie officially opened up for business and operated out of his parents’ barn on route 183. He broadened his horizons by earning a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Contracting at Penn State University in 1998. With the know-how, Eddie expanded his business to incorporate landscape design and plant health care. Years later and with an ever expanding business, Eddie pursued more space, purchasing the former Delong’s Garden Center in 2001, where Anewalt´s is currently located. Today, Anewalt’s services over 1,000 clients in Berks and other surrounding counties. Anewalt’s has been beautifying Pennsylvania one yard at a time for well over two decades.
