It is amazing how time fly’s. I started in the green industry 35 years ago in 1984 after having previously worked in the restaurant industry. I have always enjoyed being outdoors, so this was a natural fit for me. After having worked for a national lawn care company for 7 years and gaining as much knowledge as possible, I felt the time was right to start my own business in 1991.
As with any new business, the first couple of years were tough. However, business slowly began to increase and in 1995 my company was pretty much established. As I grew, the focus continued to be on the quality of work done.
‘Do the job right and show that you care, and people will seek you out’
That mindset continues to this day!
I downsized the company in 2005 after years of trying to grow it. I have now been a solo owner/operator ever since who personally performs all applications. When needed, I use licensed and insured subcontractors for the more labor intensive projects. 2019 marks my 28th year in business and I have not looked back. I still enjoy working with Mother Nature and all she has to offer!
My wife Janet and I live in Newark, Delaware with our dogs, two Shitz Zu and Yorkie mixes (Shorkies), Willie and Harley. When time permits, Janet and I love to go to the Florida Keys in the winter as well as taking some long weekend trips with friends in season on our motorcycle.
