The staff of A Great Choice Lawn Care & Landscaping clearly sets us apart from most lawn care and landscaping businesses within the Greater Binghamton region.  Meet our staff below.


John Sacco - Owner

John Sacco - Owner

John’s strong work ethic and constant dedication to his client’s needs has helped build A Great Choice Lawn Care & Landscaping into the successful business that is today. John holds a degree in Ornamental Horticulture from Finger Lakes College.  He began his career over 25 years ago when he started mowing lawns for neighbors while attending Vestal High School – many of which remain customers of the company to this day.

After college, John worked in the Agronomy department at Cornell University and for Trugreen Lawn Care. He used his formal education, on job training and years of hands on experience to open A Great Choice Lawn Care & Landscaping. The company has grown over the past 20 years to a business that employees over 30 people, and serves the southern tier and finger lakes region of New York,  and North East Pennsylvania.

Over John’s years in business he focuses his efforts on continuing to grow the core business through improving the level of customer service his company provides.  John also enjoys researching new products and techniques to keep A Great Choice ahead of the competition.    Most recently John and his company have obtained credentials as certified installers for Unilock, and Clifrock product lines.

John enjoys spending his spare time with his wife, close friends and 3 dogs, boating or just relaxing on the shore of Cayuga Lake.
