In 1970, while working full time third shift for a ADT security company, Carroll Arthur Perrine (CAP) started a small landscape company dedicated to providing high quality, beautiful, functional landscapes. Prior to starting his own business, Carroll had worked with several of the areas finest nurseryman learning all he could about plants. Using the knowledge he had gained from these experiences, Carroll was able to create landscape designs using plants that would provide a home with gorgeous curb appeal. As word spread of the quality and beauty of CAP'S work, business began to grow. CAP'S Nursery and Landscape grew into three divisions: a nursery with a full line of plants, a maintenance division and a design/build landscape division. While Carroll took great pride in the quality of his work, he was most proud of the long term relationships that he built with his customers and the joy he received from being able to help educate clients on plants.
In 2003, health problems forced Carroll into semi-retirement. The nursery and landscape divisions would remain, but the maintenance division was ended.
In 2007, Carroll's grandson, C.J. took over all operations of the company. C.J. worked at CAP'S Nursery in the summers between going to high school and college. C.J. is a graduate of Spring Arbor University and Ashworth University where he studied Landscape Design. After years of working with his grandfather, C.J. learned the importance of education in the landscape industry. Knowing how plants grow and adapt to changes is crucial for designing and creating quality landscapes that will stand the test of time. C.J. is a Certified Green Industry Professionalwith the knowledge and resources available to create a landscape that adds value and beauty to your home.
