Our Founder: RICK GRECO

While in high school, Rick majored in horticulture and natural resources. After graduating he was employed by a local garden center, and then was employed by a local landscaper/ excavator where he fine tuned his skills and was promoted to foreman. In 1980 when Rick made the decision to start his own business, he started with just a push-mower, pickup truck, some hand-tools and a lot of determination and hard work. Today his company has grown to consist of a fleet of vehicles, various machines.

MIKE PATIRE: President and Owner

Mike started at the ground level in the landscaping industry in 1997. He worked for several landscaping companies before joining the team in 2004. In January of 2019 Mike with the support of his wife Gina and two children Alexis and Giovanni took over the company after Rick decided to retire. Mike is likely the first person you will meet and is responsible for the day to day operations of the company. He is knowledgeable in all aspects of lawn and landscape care. He continually educates himself to ensure he is at the cutting edge of our field.  He also holds a NJDEP Pesticide Applicators license with certifications in Turf and Ornamental plants as well as a NJ Fertilizer License. In his free time Mike enjoys the outdoors and playing his guitar.
