Twisted Oak Landscape is a family operation run by brother duo Ryan and Joel Kinder. Growing up, neither of us thought that we would start and run our own business. In fact, life took us in different directions initially. Ryan, the older and debatably wiser one, was a CNA for a good portion of his late teens and early 20s. Then he made a switch to excavating for a local company for 3 years. The younger, and possibly smarter one, Joel started at a four-year college directly out of high school. Shortly after starting he realized this wasn’t what he wanted, and so made the switch to Chippewa Valley Technical College in Eau Claire and entered the program of Landscape, Plant, and Turf Management. There Joel picked up basic skills and knowledge in the horticulture industry. He then learned most of his knowledge in the hard and soft scaping world by getting dirty (literally) with The Natural Touch Landscaping and Supply. While there, he had the opportunity to work alongside men that have been in the industry for over 20 years. With their knowledge and experience guiding him, Joel was able to really learn the ins and outs of the business. From there, Joel took another landscape job in which he was a crew lead and this helped him to learn more about management and leadership.
Then, in a “Twist”, fate brought us back together and we started discussing the idea of launching our own company. It took a lot of thought and planning, but we finally decided it was right for us. We had Joel’s schooling, knowledge, and experience, Ryan’s experience gleaned over the years and his desire to learn and better himself, and a strong work ethic instilled into us by our parents. With all that we knew we had the magic formula to a company that could not be matched.
