About the Jacksonville Beach and Oceanway Team

Meet Our Owner: Navy Veteran James O’Brien

After 22 respectable years in the Navy serving our country, James O’Brien decided to work without boundaries. Eager to reap the rewards he sowed as an individual, he sought to provide his fellow community members with a helpful service at a fair price. A lover of the outdoors, stepping into franchise ownership with The Grounds Guys of Jacksonville Beach and Oceanway became the natural next step.

As O’Brien grew his business, he brought exceptionally skilled members onto his team to enable him to keep up with the high number of customers that sought his services. With over 45 years of industry experience, the group enjoys sharing their knowledge and investing in their development. Taking pride in the quality of work and products the team provides their customers, O’Brien says, “We do not take shortcuts or use inferior products. A customer is making an investment in their property, and we are going to give them exactly what they are looking for.”

Some of the team’s favorite services include the installation of:

  • Beautiful landscapes
  • Lush, vibrant sod
  • Elegant outdoor lighting

After putting in dedicated effort towards installing lawn features for their customers, O’Brien and his team deliver reliable maintenance services that keep the landscape and hardscape in excellent condition year-round. We were even awarded a top service provider and we are approved by Home Advisor.

As a local resource for Jacksonville Beach and Oceanway residents, the team understands the nuances of Florida’s climate. Knowing the soil, the weather patterns, and how to best serve their community provides customers with the best possible results. O’Brien is passionate about giving back to his neighbors with the resources only a nationally recognized and trusted brand network could access. It’s the ideal balance between a small business owner with a team full of talent and a nationwide business honing advanced technologies and techniques.
