ABOUT BUDGET LANDSCAPING
Jeff Burke's love for plants started at a very young age, 5 years old to be exact. His father was transferred from Corpus Christi to Caracas, Venezuela at that time. Jeff's love from plants came from his father as he had a huge greenhouse with plants such as orchids, palm trees, bird of paradise and several other varieties of plants found in the jungles of South America. During Jeff's dad's vacation times they would travel the country going into the amazon, jungles, and the rain forest to view and enjoy nature. This was the type of inspiration the led Jeff to become the landscaper for your next project.
At 21 years old Jeff started working in the landscaping business. He worked in West Houston, Spring, Conroe Areas near the 1960 / Champion Forest Areas working for US Homes, Pulte Homes, and General Homes in the late 70s and 80s doing builder commercial landscaping.
Jeff noticed that there was a landscaping company that needed a landscape foreman. He worked for Metro National Corporation.
