John Hughes
John HughesPresident
Born and raised in the Washington Metro Area, John built Hughes Landscaping on the base of lawns he once mowed as a teenager. Over the years, John has invested in the people (most of his account managers are childhood friends) and equipment to deliver the service those clients have come to rely on. “Value,” says John, when asked why clients choose Hughes Landscaping. “We don’t aim to be the least expensive company. We invest in full-service. Personal service. That’s what a homeowner or a property or a facility manager needs. To know the work will be done – right, on ​time and on-budget. That’s value.”
