Like all great stories, ours also had very humble beginnings in 2005 we started offering mowing services.
While the start wasn’t easy, it was worth it. Due to our commitment to great customer service and quality, our business started gaining momentum and in 2009, we opened our first landscaping business specializing in a variety of landscaping services from lawn and landscape maintenance to landscape installations and lighting.
With a name in the market and a steady base of loyal clientele, we decided to diversify, by entering into the snow and ice management business and becoming one of the leading service providers in the region.
In 2011, we entered into the hardscape services and quadrupled the size of our snow operations by 2014. Fast forward to 2019 and we realized the need to focus on a niche to give customers the value they were looking for.
So, in 2020, we rebranded ourselves as HL Design & Build and diverted all our focus and energy to become experts in providing landscape and outdoor living services across all of Southwest Florida.
In 2021, we added project management services to our plethora of offerings becoming an integrated provider of all things landscaping.
So that’s our story. We are open for business, and we can’t wait to hear from you. Get in touch with us today to give yourself the landscape of your dreams.
It all began at the age of 15 and a push mower. Born and raised in Northwest Indiana, Thomas began mowing lawns and doing general landscape maintenance services after school and during the summers. Word spread around and before long he was hiring friends to help keep up with demand.
Thomas began to expand into landscape and hardscape installation projects. After a few years, the company was operating half a dozen crews performing everything from lawn maintenance to hardscape installations to snow and ice management. In 2019, Thomas began to move away from maintenance and expand into design and build projects.
After completing the transition to design and build services only in 2020, he also began to design projects and provide consulting services in Southwest Florida. Since finding his passion and developing a strong foundation in design and build, he designed and built several incredible large-scale projects in Northwest Indiana as well as designed dozens of residential landscapes and outdoor living projects in Southwest Florida.
With 17 years of experience in every area of the landscape industry, Thomas brings a vast amount of knowledge and experience into every design and build project that he works on. In addition, he places a lot of focus and attention into pushing boundaries on every project.
