Bill is a graduate of Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts, with an emphasis in mass media and corporate communications. He has over 35 years of landscape maintenance and installation experience in the metropolitan area. In 1993, he founded Community Landscape Services to fill the gap between small landscape companies that lacked the resources to provide a high-level of service and the large national firms that lacked the personal attention required by clients. His vision and leadership continue to help “Team CLS” set the standard within the landscape industry. Outside of the office, Bill enjoys family activities, coaching youth sports, playing golf, and working on the farm.
