Josh Rutz

Area Manager

Josh grew up in Wichita, Kansas; but made his way to Texas as soon as he could. With summers spent working at a local nursery and as a member of the golf course staff at Terradyne Country Club, Josh quickly learned the importance of creating positive customer relations and gaining a well-rounded plant background. Josh received his Bachelors of Science in Horticulture with an emphasis in Landscape Design from Kansas State University in May of 2014. During his four years at K-State, Josh actively participated in the KSU Horticulture Club which traveled and competed at PLANET Student Career Days put on by the Professional Landcare Network. Aside from classes and spending Saturdays watching K-State football, Josh served as the President of his fraternity on campus. Being part of a team at Landscapes USA is something Josh values and actively participates in.  His attention to detail, great communication skills and “can do” attitude are an asset to all of his clients.
