As founder of the company, Byron has dedicated himself to learning every aspect of of the green industry from top to bottom.  Byron's background includes noteworthy experience in team sports, sales, accounting, finance, operations management, logistics, customer service and computer technology.  Having graduated from the University of Alabama with a B.A. in Economics, he went on to play professional baseball for both the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox organizations.  His team-based approach to management is evident in every aspect of the business.  

A native Houstonian, Byron launched EARTH FIRST Landscapes as a commercial grounds maintenance firm in March 2009.  The company was founded on the idea of providing highly customized and cutting edge landscape management plans with emphasis on sustainability and affordability.   In order to understand how to meet the needs of his customers, there is literally no job that Byron hasn't done himself.   All of the programs trained to Earth First's employees were created through Byron's own tireless research and personal trials.   His innovation and experience is what allows EARTH FIRST to "do it right the first time" for every customer.  

Since 2009, the business has grown consistently and each year as Byron has continued to attract leading industry partners to his team.  Attracting quality people is EARTH FIRST's competitive advantage and Byron's unique approach  to the industry has effectively catapulted the company to where it is today.
