Why Choose Shady Grove?

Working as Shady Grove Landscape Company, Danny and Tina Cook bring a fresh approach to life and landscaping. The company’s history began in 1995 while Danny was in college studying finance. To make a living while he was a student he began cutting lawns. By the time he graduated, he had 75 maintenance accounts, 3 employees and a fledgling landscape business. At the same time, Tina was earning her ornamental horticulture degrees 800 miles away in Orlando, Florida. They met in 2001, married in 2002 and formed a partnership that has developed into Shady Grove Landscape Company. Together with their three sons, Danny and Tina make Gwinnett County their playground, community and a canvas for their landscape creations.
