7 Must-Read Landscaping Blogs

Landscaping gardens is different from gardening. While both design and tend to gardens, landscaping gardens are projects as a whole – designing the whole plot or area of the lawn or garden, including planting and tending to lawns, gardens, shrubs and trees, even to lightning, water management and aesthetic additions (decors). Gardening involves growing, planting and tending to specific plot areas of plants, flowers, vegetables or herbs.

I have spent the majority of my career in sales and sales management positions with large Fortune 500 firms like General Foods, Johnson & Johnson, Playtex and Lenox China. About 12 years ago I became involved with the golf industry and started my own repping firm, “Leading Edge Marketing & Sales” in SE FL. After 2 years, my largest supplier offered me a position as their Director of Business Development. Two years after that I declined a move to California (their HQ) and went to work as an Area Sales Manager for General Electric retiring after a 10 year career.

Returning to the Golf Industry is a logical step for me as I love golf and the beauty and quiet the courses offer. Similar to the products I was selling during my years being involved with Eagle One, Natural Golf Solutions is an environmentally oriented company that can bring water management back to the Superintendent…and be cost effective at the same time.
