Sage Lawn & Landscaping LLC started in 2014, when owner Matt Puwalowski graduated college with a design degree and realized his true passion laid in landscape design and building his own business. As they say, the rest is history. After five years of hard work and dedication to clients, Sage became an official LLC in 2019. Jim joined the team shortly after, helping us continue to service clients and expand our reach in the Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania area.

Simply put, we believe in doing quality work and preserving the beauty of your neighborhood one yard at a time.


Meet The Owner

Although he officially founded Sage in 2014, Matt has been cutting grass and doing landscape work since he was 16. After earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design, he decided to turn his design skills outdoors and pursue building his business. 

Matt is currently earning a Landscape Design certificate at Phipps Conservatory. Outside of work, Matt is a family man who enjoys spending time with his wife Maria, two sons Matt and Noah, and dog Olive. He also enjoys riding bikes, playing basketball, and of course, wing night.

Matt & Sage Lawn are fabulous! Trying to deal with my dad in home hospice while being quarantined at my home for the week. I miscommunicated my needs to Matt for the first snow of the season but then I realized my mistake & Matt took care of it the next day. He is so nice to deal with & has the patience of a saint. Thank you Matt & your crew for being so awesome! Highly recommend! *****

Excellent service from Matt and his team. Incredible communication. Very reasonable on the price for the work done. I called from out of state to have some work done on my sister's house. Matt is the only person that responded as I was looking to hire someone. Top notch service. Sage will get all our business in the future.
