Brandon Barski started Barski Hardscaping, formally Great Escapes Landscaping, in 2009. Beginning work in the field at the age of 14 he was immediately connected and drawn to the industry. At the age of 17 Brandon set out to build his own company with the highest standards of integrity and workmanship being his goal. Taking every opportunity he could to learn more about products and installation methods, he has taken the skills acquired over the years and applied them to over 50,000sqft of a variety of hardscape installs across North East Ohio. Brandon and his company are now preferred contractors and are ready and able to take on any size or scope of outdoor projects. Brandon is devoted to his company and keeping the highest standards for his work and employees and he looks forward to being the first to meet with you.



At a young age Jennifer began her career in the landscape industry as a laborer for a northeast Ohio design build firm where she learned a hands on approach with softscape and hardscape elements. She went on to acquire B.S. degrees in Environmental Biology and Environmental Geology from the University of Dayton. She then continued her education at the Ohio State University obtaining a Masters of Landscape Architecture degree. After graduating, Jennifer began her professional career with a well-known Landscape Architecture firm in southwest Florida. It was there she advanced her design and management skills working on varied project sizes and types from Resort-Style living to Modern design. She has developed integrated spaces for planned communities, commercial developments and international resorts but has a unique passion for residential design. Jennifer enjoys working with her clients to assist them in creating their estate master plan, intimate garden, or courtyard that becomes their backyard Oasis.

Jennifer is a member of the American Society of Landscape Architecture and was the Naples/Fort Myers Section Chair for two appointments. Additionally she served on the Florida Chapter Education Committee, the 09’ Conference Committee, and on the Government Affairs Committee.
