Dakota was born in New Bern and graduated from New Bern High School in 2013. He joined our team soon after high school as one of our install crew members. He left for a brief time relocating to New Jersey, then back to North Carolina where he worked with a landscape equipment dealer before returning to our team as a crew leader in 2017. Dakota finds the landscape industry to be extremely rewarding. “It allows you to, in most cases, see the results of your efforts immediately; particularly with mowing.” Dakota took an advancement opportunity with another company in 2018 and re-joined the team again in 2020 to help manage our facility and team operations. Dakota has a young son that keeps him busy and lives in New Bern with his family.
