One of the most counter-intuitive concepts is the one of giving to receive. For us it is so true and we have constant reminders of how this conundrum works in our lives. When we started Jefferson Landscaping almost twelve years ago, our primary purpose was for Jeff to build on his passion for working with soils. As we grew, we made the decision that providing a healthy work environment and investing in our employees was our most important mission. We transitioned over to alternative fuels because it is better for the environment and better for our employees not having to breathe those fumes. We have gained so much knowledge and education from our professional association (WALP), we want to make sure we continue to give back so the next generation of landscape professionals have the same opportunities.
