About the owner – Steve Simonfay
Steve grew up in Chatham N.J., attended local schools, and graduated from Rutgers University. He started mowing lawns as a teenager and seemed to know right away that someday he would own and operate his own landscaping business.
After college, Steve focused entirely on making his dream a reality. With guidance and encouragement from his parents he learned how to operate a business, generate clients, hire and train employees, meet a payroll, etc. As the business grew he took courses in turf management, landscape design & construction, tree & shrub care, garden design, insect & disease control, patio & wall design, soil/sediment control & drainage, and landscape lighting.
Slowly but surely his company has become a premier provider of landscape services in the area. Steve attributes much of his success to learning early in his career that customers are what drive a business. He devotes a great deal of time to understanding his clients’ needs, designing creative and cost effective solutions, and then providing quality execution with attention to detail.
While creating a successful business has always been a goal for Steve, his marriage to Sally, a special education teacher at Chatham High School, and their two boys Steven and Scott are what bring joy and fulfillment to his life. Below are his boys assisting with a little yard work.
