Wes Maggard – Owner


Wes has always enjoyed being in the outdoors and working in landscaping. He began mowing lawns in Kentucky while in elementary school to earn money for baseball cards, and continued this through middle and high school. While pursuing his Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and Master of Arts in Secondary Education from the University of Louisville, he spent his summers mowing lawns and installing landscapes. He started his first landscape company while in college, and owned & operated Best Lawn care in Louisville, KY for 9 1/2 years. After college, Wes also pursued a career in education, teaching high school mathematics for 7 1/2 years. During this time he also served as a high school boys’ basketball coach, and was an assistant coach for the 2006 Kentucky State Champions.

In 2007, Wes moved to Las Vegas with plans to start a landscape contracting business. Knowing that the Las Vegas climate is built for spending time outdoors, he started V.I.P. Landscaping in late 2007, and has been dedicated ever since to growing the company into one of the Las Vegas’ premier full-service landscape contractors. He takes pride in the opportunity to design, build, and maintain dream outdoor spaces for his clients. Wes demonstrates his passion for the industry through his constant pursuit of learning. His earned certifications include ICPI Certified Paver Installer, NCMA Certified Segmental Retaining Wall Installer, ISA Certified Arborist, and IA Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditor.

Wes finds it “Extremely gratifying to see his customers enjoying an outdoor living space that V.I.P. Landscaping designed and built.”

Outside of work, Wes enjoys spending time with his family & friends, is a member of Grace Point Church, and is an avid fan of the Louisville Cardinals.
