Meet the Family
Rod Crossman’s love for landscape began at an early age, and by 1984, in his senior year of high school, he created his first maintenance route. Wanting to learn more and grow, Rod was fortunate to work for two well-established landscape organizations in San Diego County, where he was personally mentored by some of the most respected experts in the industry, Jon Ewing and Mark Wilhite. Both companies were eventually sold to national brands, and Rod went on to found Crossman Landscape &Maintenance, Inc. in 2001.
Tonya Crossman left her career of over 10 years as a paralegal in one of San Diego’s most prominent law firms, to join forces with Rod, managing the HR and Finance departments for the family business. In 2016, Tonya founded Crossman Landscape Services, Inc., a sister company to Crossman Landscape & Maintenance Inc., where she holds the position of President. It was important for Tonya to establish a woman owned business, as we don’t see many of those in the landscape industry.
Brittany Crossman started working for the family business at age 10. She spent many evenings, weekends and summers counting and coloring plans for her dad, Rod. As she grew, her role expanded to converting plans into spreadsheets, and eventually assisting with company proposals. After graduating from ASU in 2011 with a degree in business, Brittany returned to the family business in 2013 full time, bringing new levels of ideas and business knowledge. She continues to work in many facets of the company, from purchasing manager to managing project budgets, to assisting the estimator & administration. She’s Rod’s right-hand woman, and the overall go-to person for process improvement in the family business.
Blake Crossman started working for the family business as a construction laborer during summers in high school. From there, he went on to college & graduated with a degree in business in 2013. Blake now works multiple jobs besides the family business, including mortgage loan processing & owning a fishing charter company. Blake’s network of clients, allows him to bring in outside sales to Crossman Landscape.

Eliseo has been a landscaper for over 15 years. After I did maintenance for a short time, I found my passion in Construction. I like all started as a basic labor, but before long I was pipefitting, I learned to operate bobcats, excavators, trenchers, petti bones, tractors & backhoes. When I became a leadman is when I learned to read construction blueprints, from there I became a Foreman that worked on parks, streets, slopes, shopping centers, large custom commercial & residential projects. I truly pride myself as a responsible & organized person that’s safety above all else.
