Chris has two associate degrees in business as well as a bachelor’s degree from Old Dominion University in Marketing. Chris’ pursuit of excellence in the landscape industry has led him to achieve an ICPI certification, licensed class A contractor in Virginia and West Virginia, a NCMA certification, Belgard Authorized Contractor, ICPI Advanced Walls and Patio Certification.


  • H.S.
    We have a vast landscape with many demands, CLC always exceeds our expectations. We have worked with other landscape companies in the past, but none have had the knowledge like them.”
  • R.S.
    The CLC staff is outstanding in keeping in close touch with our needs. The CLC account manager assigned to our account keeps the lines of communication flowing. We have had numerous landscaping companies in the past, CLC is the only one that has kept association member satisfaction at a record high.
  • F.J.
    As board president and on the behalf of the association, I would like to thank you and your organization for the fine job you have done. Your effort and attention to our landscape has paid off and this is the best the property has looked in over nine years!

    I live in a townhouse community that CLC acquired the contract with this year. There has been tremendous improvement from last year this time. Grounds are well kept, edging, fresh mulch, and very professional landscapers. I recommend CLC.

  • “We have used Chris and his team for several projects ranging from complete landscape – retaining walls, paver patios, sod, and plantings – to smaller projects in between, and have loved them all!”

  • They responded promptly with a quote to do winter pruning for my trees and shrubs. Their fees were reasonable to the point that I didn't feel the need to get additional quotes. After I signed on, they completed pruning and general tidying up of my dental office property within a week. I went ahead and signed on for their annual grounds maintenance plan because it was also fairly priced. I am very pleased with their service and recommend them for any commercial or residential landscaping services.
