Our Story: A Note from the President
The story of Lehigh Lawns and Landscaping, Inc. is very much my story, and the company’s development over the years has been intertwined with my own life. I started out mowing lawns in my neighborhood in Wappingers Falls, when I was just a young man, but right from the beginning I was drawn to this business, its connection to the earth and its cycles of rebirth and growth. Over many years of hard work with other professional landscapers, I continued my education in both the classroom and the field. As my experience and expertise grew, I made the decision to launch Lehigh Lawns and Landscaping in 1987 in Wappingers Falls, and I’ve never looked back.
I founded this company with a simple mission statement: Dedication to excellence in customer service and a commitment to staying abreast of the latest developments in the field would always be our top priorities. Our growth over the past 25 years in Poughkeepsie and has validated the soundness of that mission statement many times over. My crews are trained in the same areas in which I specialize, including lawn care applications, landscape design and installation, tree service and plant health care, holiday lighting and snow management. We are always up to date with the latest trends and emerging technologies in the landscaping industry.
Among my professional and trade affiliations are membership in the New York State TurfGrass Association (www.nysta.org), PLANET (formed by the 2005 merger of the Associated Landscape Contractors of America and the Professional Lawn Care Contractors of America, www.landcarenetwork.org) and the New York State Nursery & Landscape Association (www.nysnla.com). I am also a member of PROSULT, a peer-to-peer networking organization of professional contractors that facilitates information and idea sharing among business owners from diverse geographic locations.
I am a Certified Pesticide Applicator/Technician, registered with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, a Certified Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture, and an authorized Unilock installer. I have won a number of community awards for landscape design and construction and for my creative use of materials.
