In 1945 Ben Asjes and his wife Virginia purchased a piece of land in Raytown, Missouri. For two years Ben cleared the land, built a house for his wife and kids, and constructed all of the buildings needed to run his business.
In 1947 "Raytown Landscape Nursery" opened its doors for business. As the city of Raytown grew, so did Raytown Landscape Nursery. The nursery was a complete tree and ornamental growing operation with many greenhouses, potting sheds, a complete retail garden center, and all of the shops and garages to house and maintain the farming equipment. The license plate on Ben's truck was customized to say "BARN", for Ben Asjes Raytown Nursery.
In 2016, Gary and Cheryl decided to relocate their business. After being in the family for 71 years, they sold the property in Raytown and moved the business to Oak Grove, Missouri. B.A.R.N. Lawn and Landscape continues to service customers throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan area. Gary continues to operate the business with the same level of quality and professionalism that Ben always demanded.
