ABOUT THE OWNER

Growing up as a child of an immigrant family I was introduced to horticulture at an early age through my family garden. My father grew many of his own seasonal fruits and vegetables to nourish our family. He extended that passion from his garden to his landscape. He took great pride in his own lawn which he meticulously maintained. During my youth I observed and learned his cultural practices and became interested in horticulture myself. After approximately 20 years of gained knowledge and education it became apparent the next step would be to delve into entrepreneurship in the landscape and lawn care industry. My father took pride and tended to his garden remarkably until his last season at the ripe age of 86. Something I hope to achieve in my retirement.
