Lucas brought many years of construction experience to Nelson Landscaping when he joined our staff in 2022 as a Project Manager overseeing all construction!
Lucas grew up in a small farming community in Arizona and began working in the hardwood industry in Phoenix at the age of 18. Upon moving to Oklahoma, he began working in the construction industry in various roles including framing, siding, roofing, windows, concrete, and electrical; all eventually leading him into his own business as a general contractor. His first building project was a multipurpose building for an adolescent program (Teen Challenge) featuring a multi-level indoor cafeteria, school classrooms, admin offices, and a full gymnasium.
While taking a break from construction, Lucas worked in management for Lowe’s as a Sales Manager, Admin Manager, and Operations Manager. He also ran his own lawn care business for over 10 years in the Grand Lake area of Northeast Oklahoma. He resumed his general contractor business in Edmond in 2021 focusing on new construction and large-scale remodels.
When he’s not at work, Lucas enjoys spending time with his wife and 5 kids. He is currently pursuing a lifelong dream of obtaining his pilot’s license! He enjoys drone cinematography (filming off-road racing), and hunting elk in Arizona. He’s known to be a kid at heart so he loves serving in the kid’s ministry at his church.
