A Fresh Start
In April 2021, Gary Mozingo was able to fulfill a lifelong vision by purchasing Doerler Landscapes & Hidden Springs from the Doerler family. Gary has enjoyed a very successful career in the Green Industry over the past 25 years. He started his career in 1998 and and has worked in various roles from crew member to his most recent role of Vice President of Construction & Irrigation at a large company in North Jersey where he worked for almost 15 years immediately prior to purchasing the company. With the help of his lovely wife, 4 children, family and dedicated staff, Gary's goals for the company are to continue to build on the existing foundation and high-quality work and services offered to our clients while also being actively involved in local community services to give back as much as possible.
When Gary first met with the team members of Doerler Landscapes to discuss his vision for the company he said, “In a time where the world is asking for more and more out of their employees, I want our business model to be based on team members first, ahead of profits. If we treat our people with appreciation and gratitude, and they feel respected, they will in turn provide our clients with the same. I believe the end result will be more meaningful client relationships based on integrity rather than price.” With each new day and blessing, Gary's joy and enthusiasm shines through while interacting with team members and clients.
How We Got Started
Doerler Landscapes was founded in 1962 by William (Bill) K. Doerler and his wife Mary. Bill's immigrant family did not have enough money to send him to school. But his parents taught him that through hard work, you could reach all your goals. So to obtain his degree in Ornamental Horticulture at Cornell University, he alternated semesters at school with semesters at work. Upon graduation from Cornell and after a brief stint as a pilot in the Air Force, Bill, his wife Mary and their 4 children started their family business.
In the year 2000, Steve Doerler purchased the business from his father and continued his legacy while adding to the scope of work that was offered to our clients. To ensure our success as a full service company, Steve purchased Hidden Springs Lawn Irrigation in 2004. This allowed us to offer both commercial and residential design/build, landscape maintenance, snow removal, irrigation and low voltage lighting services to our clients.
