Andrew Fritz

Owner

Andrew was born and raised in the Dahinda-Williamsfield area. He has received several horticulture-related degrees from Joliet Junior College and has experience working in the Chicago and Quad City markets. He returned to the area in 2005 and started the business with a pickup truck, small tractor, and pull-behind trailer. In 15+ years, he's met many customers and fellow tradesmen/contractors and especially enjoys working with return customers. He lives in rural Dahinda with his wife Gwen and is very active in the community. If you see him, give him a wave or thumbs up!
