Owner and Manager, Richard joined Lane in 1998 and has been involved in the landscape industry for over 30 years. Richard has a BS degree in Ornamental Horticulture from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. In the past he has worked for a grounds maintenance crew, owned a small landscape and grounds maintenance company (now inactive), taught high school and adult vocational landscape classes and has been a landscape job cost estimator.
Coming to Lane with a background in sheet metal Troy has gained substantial knowledge in the areas of ponds and outdoor lighting. Troy uses our on-site pond and our lighting room to demonstrate the features of pond installation and the various effects of landscape lighting. Troy is very familiar with many products. He is confident in troubleshooting and providing solutions.
My main background is construction and some landscaping after high school. When the economy went down I began training to be a Network Support Technician at the Institute of Technology. Prior to my current postion I provided vineyard maintenance and machinery repair at Miramont Estate Vineyards in Lodi. Working in the vineyard enhanced my knowledge of drip irrigation.
