HISTORY OF LANDSCAPER'S CHOICE

In 1988, Ron & Kathy decided to make the big move from Michigan to Naples. They purchased a small two-man landscape maintenance company called Roswell Services. In Roswell’s 13 years of operation, it employed over 25 people with sales of over $1 million dollars annually. In 1999, a national company called One Source approached the Torps to purchase Roswell Services, and the deal was made.
Then in 2000 after extensive research, Ron & Kathy decided there was an opportunity and a need for a nursery and landscape supply source in southern Collier County. Their idea was to use their past experiences and create a “one stop” operation that would save customers both time and money. Landscaper’s Choice then opened in October of 2000.
The company has evolved into a multimillion dollar organization and it continues to grow year after year. Over many years of servicing landscapers and homeowners, we have made the decision that our company is best suited to be a wholesale only operation. As of September 2014, you must have a valid Florida contractor's license to make any purchases at Landscaper's Choice

From all of the staff at Landscaper's Choice, we want to THANK YOU for your support and business since 2000.
