The Landscape Guys was formed in early 2008. After nearly thirty years in the landscape business, Hugh Glidewell had sold his previous company in 2005 and was raring to get back to work, despite the challenging economic outlook.
The new company had humble beginnings, but as the economy slowly recovered, Hugh was able to rehire much of the core talent that had built his old company. By 2014 commercial construction in the Southeast, and new multi-family development in particular, was clearly back, and back to stay for a while. The company was lucky enough to attract the services of Matt Hayden, the sales director and mainstay of the previous company, to take advantage of the considerable opportunities that were apparent.
In late 2015 we had a couple big changes. One, we recognized major opportunities to our north, particularly in Charlotte, and two, Hugh asked Matt to join him as a partner. In 2016 the principles agreed to set up a separate operation based in Charlotte that Matt would head up.
HOW WE DO IT BETTER:
Amongst our crews, we have foremen and crew members who have worked with Hugh for more than twenty years. We love our work. The quality of work, and extraordinary production levels are ingrained into our company’s psyche, and envied by our competitors.
This, along with our longstanding relationships with key suppliers (our ability to purchase directly from growers at the optimum price point) is what gives The Landscape Guys its unique competitive edge.
Our Philosophy & What We Do
The Landscape Guys have one rule. We only work for people we like. Our customers are more than just another project. They are an integral part of our work family, and taking care of family is hard wired into Hugh’s DNA. Our managers, our crews, our customers, one big fun spirited professional family. Hugh saw the same attitude in Matt, which is how they ended up as partners. Working together with our customers, every job is a professional & fun collaboration with one goal. To provide a beautiful on budget landscape everyone can be proud of. We start out the door every morning with that plan in mind, and we get to work with good people and have fun doing quality work. Following that plan for years, we have seen many great things happen. We believe we have the best customers anywhere. Each job is a team effort, and there’s nothing we like more than knocking out a solid, successful landscape with our work families that we know will look great for years to come.
WHAT WE DO:
We are exclusively engaged in general commercial landscape, hardscape, and irrigation installation, with a focus on the multi family industry.
