John is a second generation lawn care expert. He started in the turf/shrub/tree business in 1988, cutting grass and fertilizing lawns in Southern NJ. He also did his first Tree planting 12 Bradford Pears… HIt was a good Planting, but a horrible choice of Trees.
As he started building services, he quickly found that he was drawn to the Plant Health Care side of things. He’s been at it for 35 years now.
John has worked in PHC on the East Coast, the Rocky Mountains, Alaska, and the several locations in the South. He has become a true expert, having seriously studied plants, pathogens and solutions for years. He has one of the broadest, and deepest knowledge bases in the industry.
Because of his breadth of knowledge, John is able to take a more holistic approach to landscape. He understands how turf fertilizers and weed controls affect your trees. He understands how tree treatments will affect your turf. He understands how all parts of a landscape work together. As he sees it, “It’s all one living breathing thing.”
John claims that he is no fun at parties as conversation quickly turns to work, and before long, he ends up fielding questions about someone’s landscape. But he wouldn’t have it any other way.
