Meet the Team
JP started La Salle in 2007 with nothing more than a lawn mower and a dream. He started his business while working full time for a Carpentry company. While working there, he would dedicate his off time and weekends to grow his company. His great work ethic, attention to detail, perseverance, and great customer service soon proved to customers that he was a hard worker and that he loved what he was doing. He started with just one customer and little by little started getting more customers. As his small company began to grow, he hired his first employees and years later, Lasalle has grown to become a great reputable, reliable landscape company that we all know and love today!! JP likes to be very hands on, so he oversees scheduling, purchasing, and helps out with staffing needs while also managing a handful of customer accounts along with helping the crews with anything the need. JP’s favorite part of his job is helping his clients solve problems; from figuring out how to get the most bang for their landscaping budget to helping new customers who call out of distress find a solution for their landscaping needs or issues. When JP earns a customer’s trust and makes his/her life easier, JP feels that he has truly done his job well. When not working, he can usually be found working out at the gym, enjoying time with family and friends, trying out new restaurants all around town or bicycling which is his favorite hobby!
