Knowledgeable, relatable, experienced.

I understand small business. I have walked in your boots! As small business owner to small business owner, my  practical background helps me help you get to the next level in your business.  I work collaboratively throughout the entire process and develop measurable results. 

Steve has served as a regional leader in the North Carolina green industry including owning his own landscape, irrigation and landscape lighting company for 25 years, then selling to a Lawn and Landscape Top 150 company. Steve is a Trailblazer with the NALP, serves as Vice Chairman on the NC Irrigation Contractors License Board, and has been featured in several trade magazines. Steve knows a thing or two about strategic planning, goal setting and generating additional revenue with unique add-on business ideas. During the 25 years in business, Steve’s companies performed over 1,200,000 hours of landscape services and beautified over 3000 properties. He provides consulting to small and medium size landscape, irrigation and lawn care businesses. When he’s not digging in the garden, he’s hunting birds across the US with his canine friend, Cotton.

Do you have a challenge, plateau or business hurdle that you’d love some help with?  Do you just need a sounding board  or perhaps someone to bounce  business ideas off with industry experience for a "sanity check?"  Since founding my business, I’ve provided my clients with a wide range of consulting services  to help them turn over a New Leaf.

Steve, your processes and methods have significantly contributed to Austin Turf becoming a much better run and profitable business in the last few years.  Your recent site visit was extremely beneficial in helping me understand how seemingly small improvements in our morning routine and shop  organization can add up to greater efficiencies and major profits.  I look forward to working with you as we implement more systems and strategies in the upcoming year.
