Builder Spotlight: Mesa Turf Masters

When did you start Mesa Turf Masters?
My wife and I moved to Grand Junction in January of 1991 and I started Mesa Turf Masters in 1992.
How did you get started in the industry?
I had my first mowing job at 13 and by the time I was in high school I was maintaining about 25 lawns. In 1985 I started a summer job with a national lawn care company. I learned how to fertilize lawns and care for trees. Before moving to Colorado I worked in various locations around Michigan, each with their unique needs.  In addition to providing lawn and tree care I worked for a company that produced fertilizer and specialty lawn care products.
