Providing Customized, Environmentally Conscious Grounds Management
After mowing my parents lawn and pruning their shrubs since the age of 12, I decided I may as well make a career out of it. After graduating from Penn State University with a B.S. in Turfgrass Science, I was able to work for years at some very prestigious private country clubs in Western PA. I learned the highest standards of lawn and landscape maintenance. After working my way up the line and eventually becoming a golf course superintendent, I decided I needed a career and location change.

An opportunity to move to Connecticut and join a prominent Tree, Shrub & Lawn Care Company opened up and I decided to make the move to CT. I spent 5 years at this local company expanding my knowledge of tree, shrub and residential lawn care and meeting some great people along the way.
After getting married and wanting to start a family, I decided it was time to move away from chemicals and focus more on tree & shrub planting, pruning and maintenance. During this time, the opportunity opened up to join Sound Grounds. After joining Sound Grounds, I reorganized the company in 2012 to expand our services. I wanted to be able to share all of my 15 plus years of knowledge and experience in custom grounds management to my clients, to be the "Superintendent" of their properties. This allows me to give my clients the best looking lawn and landscape possible.
