Bud was born in the Midwest but migrated to Southwest Florida nearly twenty years ago. While working with the parks department, Bud was captivated with Florida’s subtropical vegetation and quickly became a Florida Certified Horticultural Professional (FCHP) pursuing this passion. Bud continually participates in educational opportunities to broaden his knowledge of the changing environmental factors impacting our region’s landscape and evolving pest issues. He brings immense knowledge and understanding of native plants and pests with over 15 years of experience in the landscape build, maintenance and irrigation industries. An accomplished account manager, Bud also has personal experience in being a member of a condominium board, understanding all aspects of property expectations and management, for both multi-family as well as single-family dwellings. Nothing brings Bud more satisfaction than when a customer finds joy and pride in their own gardening goals.
