I'm Stan Ruffin of Grifton, NC. Being a former Marine, I have a personal desire to see things neat and clean. I served in the USMC from 1981-1993. In 1988 I received Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, and answered God's call to preach His gospel in 1994. In 2000 I brought a 1999 JD LX-279 to maintain my yard, and as a result of excellant job I did, neighbors asked if I would maintain theirs as well. The rest is history. After about the 3rd season, I had about 47 customers while working full time as a Water Plant Operator. I've since cut back to 12 customer, but still maintain the highest level of quality and professionalism. My weapons of choice are Hustler Super-Z w/54' deck, Stihl weed eaters, edgers, hedge trimmer, and chain saws, Echo backpack blowers along with other misc. equipment. In my opinion, if you are going to do the job, do it right with the right equipment.
