who we are
In 2004, James Kosner founded JIMAX Landscape, a residential landscaping company based in Downers Grove, IL. JIMAX was relocated to Peoria, IL in 2007, where he graduated Dunlap High School. From there he attended Illinois State University where he studied Building Construction Management. In 2013 JIMAX Landscape was converted to JIMAX Landscape LLC when James partnered with Jarrod Martis, our vice-president. In addition to overseeing JIMAX Landscape, Martis is our expert in-house mechanic and regularly uses knowledge gained at the University of Illinois, where he studied mechanical engineering and has performed agricultural research in conjunction with UIUC and the USDA.
JIMAX continues to grow through acquisition of commercial accounts, working with local builders, performing more in-house work, and growing our relationships with the communities. We continually invest in new equipment, technology, and landscape techniques to better serve our customers and look forward to continued improvement in the future. JIMAX is the only company or municipality in Central Illinois to invest in the Trimble Technology Weedseeker Selective Spray Technology. JIMAX also owns and operates a Perma Green Ride ON Sprayer Spreader. JIMAX Landscape LLC maintains a Drug Free Workplace through pre-employment screens as well as randomized testing through MEDTOX Laboratories. Safety training is emphasized at the beginning of each season with several days dedicated to review and implementation and meetings are conducted weekly by the crew chiefs with their crews to reiterate these points.
JIMAX Landscape LLC maintains long standing relationships with several high volume customers in and around the Peoria area. Our focus is and has always been on providing the customer with high-quality, timely service to meet any need they may have. Our slogan continues as "all things outdoors." We have provided final grading, sod, and seed installation and landscaping on local Peoria contractors' houses since 2012, working closely with city officials to complete projects in a satisfactory manner. All out-of-town projects at Peoria Builders are conducted by JIMAX, a testament to the trust we have established with the customer. The Monge Group of Maloof Realty has been a close customer for several years, and JIMAX is the contractor of choice for high end project landscaping and load bearing earth retaining installation. In fact, our relationship is so well-established, no bids were sent out for the new personal residency landscaping work in Weaver Ridge. We also work closely with S&S Property Management for turf care and snow removal, as well as any landscape or other contractor work as required. In addition to these commercial clients, JIMAX has provided services to localities in the are for years, including City of Peoria code enforcement, snow routes, and emergency tree work. Illinois Central College and the cities of East Peoria, Pekin, and Washington regularly solicit similar services with JIMAX. We currently hold commercial licensing for Applicator, Operator, Right of Way, Ornamental, Turf, Aquatics, and Mosquito Abatement.
