Mike’s love for the landscape industry goes back to his childhood when he watched his dad cut their own lawn, first with a reel mower and later with a gas-powered mower. When he was big enough, he started pushing that mower around his block, mowing lawns for his neighbors. In high school, he worked for a local landscaping business, where he learned much about the trade.
In 1976, fresh from college with a degree in horticulture and a jar of spare change, Mike launched Horizon Landscape Company. Since then, the company has grown and diversified every year. From that one-man mowing operation, Horizon has become an industry leader that North Jersey families and companies know and trust for landscape maintenance, construction, irrigation, lighting and snow services.
Mike is active in state-level industry leadership, holding seats on the NJ Landscape Contractors Association, NJ Green Industry Council, Irrigation Association of NJ, State of NJ Landscape Irrigation Contractors Examining Board.
When he is not in the office, Mike enjoys traveling with his wife Joanne, training his dog Coco, and spending time with his family at their cabins in upstate New York.
