Hello and welcome to my page! I'm the owner, Steven Keogh, and I'd like to say thank you for taking the time to browse through everything on my page. I was born and raised out in the country up in north central Nebraska where I learned all of the Nebraska values from hard work starting out as a little kid, respecting those around you, and going out of your way to lend that helping hand to others. I take pride in what I do everyday and I look forward to serving you!
After graduating from college in 2001, I landed in the Columbus area and started working as a surveyor for an engineering firm here and bounced around a bit like everyone out there. Today, I'm still in the surveying profession and I work for a power company based out of Columbus and I do my rock business on the side in the evenings and on the weekends.
After buying my first house back in 2009, I had to do all of the landscaping myself as it was a new house. So, as I continued to work on improving my landscaping, I made some major changes to my yard in the summer of 2012 and added a couple berms to my backyard and another berm out front between the house and curb. I had always seen everyone with these cool looking personalized limestone rocks in their yards so it was time to figure out where they were coming from. So I started off at the local monument place and they directed me to try a landscape place here in town. They had them, but I was debating on whether the price was reasonable and if I really wanted to get one from them or not. So, I continued checking around and asking to find out where some of my friends had gotten theirs from.
I finally found out that it was a place down in Kansas where my friends had gotten theirs from. I was very pleased with the products that my friends had purchased. I tried going through a dealer up here in Nebraska, but I had some customer service issues with them so I figured that I'd work directly with the manufacturer. So to finish off my landscaping project for that summer I bought a 12"x36" personalized limestone rock and 4 other Husker rocks to set around in my landscaping. While I was down in Kansas, I was able to see all of the possibilities for these limestone rocks and that's when the old brain went into overdrive. I remembered how much trouble I had just gone through to get my 5 rocks for my landscaping. I thought boy it would sure be nice to offer central Nebraska an affordable and easy way to get these rocks while maintaining the highest level of customer service and customer satisfaction. So, I worked to become a dealer for them and what you're seeing now are the results of all of those efforts to become a dealer back in August of 2012.
