Crider Landscaping incorporated in 2013; however, the story starts in 2001 when two brothers started a little business mowing lawns to be able to go on summer trips and buy their first vehicles. The brothers were 15 and 14 years old at the time and saved their money to go to college and to summer camps. They pushed their mower around the neighborhoods and eventually used an old farm truck to haul around their equipment.

While mowing lawns through high school and completing the highest honor with the Boy Scouts of America by taking on a major landscape project for a Church, John built and sold a successful landscape maintenance company and a tree care company. While all this was going on and John was learning from hands on experience he was also studying Entrepreneurship and Marketing at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and where he graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science.

During this time there was a lot of education both formally and from hard knocks.

In 2013, John opened Crider Landscaping, and immediately was back working for some of his former clients that he served through high school and college Over the next few years John once again bootstrapped a business. John focuses on building systems and providing quality services to his clients.

After a bit of time struggling to understand where he fit in the marketplace, trying to be a provider to the masses, John realized that the business would better serve his clients, employees, and family better if he focused on quality and the customer experience. He realized that by providing a higher quality product he could do more for his employees and the community.

Here we are… 15+ years later and we service over a hundred clients each month and deliver landscape and lawn care solutions throughout Hamilton County.

As Crider Landscaping continues to grow and add more team members We look forward to what the future brings and strive to keep creating exceptional experiences for our clients, for our employees and for our community.

Whether we are mowing a lawn, trimming a tree, building a wall, install mulch, or answering phone calls and emails – we endeavor to create an experience that is so unique, so personal, and so different from other companies – an experience that it is unforgettable.
