Kyle Morrison began working in the green industry right out of high school. A complex life path has taken him through many jobs and places including military service and hiking the Appalachian trail. Kyle brings experience ranging from lawn maintenance to waterfalls to concrete patios. He is a yes man that will commit to and put his full energy into any project you give him.

He has a wife, Hannah, and dog child named Jasper. They’ve been in the area for 4 years now, first drawn here by the beauty of Mesa Verde and the mountains of Colorado.
