The Beginning of Southern Landscape Professionals
Southern Landscape Professionals, Inc. was established as a family enterprise in 1987. The business began under the direction of Bill Adams, Jr. with the assistance of his father Billy and sister Sarah.
Beginning with just five employees in 1987, Southern Landscape Professionals started its tradition of
commitment to excellence and quality of work. Respect for the customer and a strong
commitment to the community have always been important values of the company.
As our company matured over the years, so did the quality and integrity of our work. Southern Landscape Professionals has developed the ability to create superior landscape value for our clients by combining expert training, horticultural knowledge, craftsmanship, and a
commitment to safety.
