Michael was destined to beautify the outdoors. Even as a child he could be found in the yard, raking leaves, digging or collecting stones to build miniature play structures. At the age of 12 he saved his money to buy a used lawnmower and started his first neighborhood lawn care business. As a young man he traded in that mower for a formal education, attending Rutgers University to study Landscape Design. After working under his mentor in his hometown of Bergenfield, New Jersey, he moved to Fort Myers, Florida to pursue his lifelong passion of starting this business.
