Background for the Job

I grew up in a simple 1860's farm house in Middle Tennessee, that was part of my family since 1903. Growing up there involved spending lots of time outdoors, whether it was exploring the woods, gardening with my parents, or helping work on the house.


Those childhood experiences stuck with me and I now have a passion for digging in the dirt. My first jobs in high school  and college taught me hard work ethic. I worked in restaurants, and for a local handyman that installed roofs, siding and gutters.  After college, I worked at All Seasons Gardening and Brewing Supply. I learned a lot about plants and met some great landscapers including Mike and Terry from Growild Inc. I also learned a lot about making beer and took a job at my favorite local brewery Yazoo, where over 10 years I was able to learn about hard work, thrifty values, and customer satisfaction.


Now I'm excited to return to the hard work that I learned so much about in years past and combine that with the lessons and values learned from my work with some great local Nashville small businesses, as I build this new venture for myself.

My pledge of satisfaction guaranteed

I always ask myself "What would I want if I hired someone to work on my house?" and apply those answers to how I will treat my customers. Most importantly, I will show up when I say I will, listen to your concerns, communicate about time and price of a job before work starts and during the job, I will not cut corners to make a quick buck, and make sure you are happy with the work upon completion. This is how I will treat you as my customer. Please call, text or email today to get scheduled for your punch list or next project.
