Dennis also started working in the landscaping industry at a young age. Like our horticulturist Mark Burton, his landscaping career began when he started mowing lawns in the fifth grade. He continued this business until he went off to college. Dennis has always enjoyed spending time in the outdoors, whether he’s playing sports, hunting, or working outside. His favorite part of the job, he says, is that “… you’re always doing something new and learning new things almost every single day.”
Dennis studied turf grass management at the University of Tennessee in 2004 and 2005. He was an intern at Eagle Rock Golf Club in Wilmington, NC in the summer of 2007 where he worked as a spray technician and greens keeper. In 2009 he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in horticulture from Ferrum College.
Dennis has worked for Roanoke Landscapes since March of 2012.
I just want you to know that your crew did a fantastic job today! My wife and I have never been more impressed with a company. The quality of the work was truly amazing. We watched your crew occasionally and you should be proud of them. As hot as it was they never stopped. We are truly looking forward to some more work in late fall or early winter. Please let the crew know how grateful we are for their tremendous effort.
