Our History

Established as a full service landscape contractor in 1974, we began to focus on commercial grounds maintenance in 1980 providing mowing, trimming and related services to nearly one hundred accounts in southeast Virginia and our projects have been presented with numerous Clean Business Awards. Six of the sixteen full-time permanent employees have been with the firm for over ten years. Job training is important for quality service and we have on our staff two landscape designers, six registered technicians and three certified commercial pesticide applicators. We are also involved in civic activities within the community which include actively supporting the Virginia Living Museum and The America’s Anniversary Garden.
