About our Roots: The people who started it all

Gary Fears

Gary Fears

President, Co-Owner

Gary Fears is the President and co-owner of Green Summit Landscape Management. Fears specifically oversees New Business Development and Customer Service. His passion for landscaping began at the age of eleven, when his father dropped him off at the end of a street with a lawn mower. He would move from house to house, offering lawncare to his first customers. Everyone has grass in Kentucky where Fears grew up. This middle school summer job has since blossomed into a professional career in the landscaping industry.

Fears has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and a minor in Landscape Management from Brigham Young University. He is also Landscape Industry Certified through the National Association of Landscape Professionals and holds a JS Sprinkler License and NMDA Pesticide License. In 2008, Fears moved to Albuquerque after being recruited by an industry leading landscape company.

Seven years later, he established his own business with the help of his partners, and Green Summit continues to grow and service the community in the greater Albuquerque area. After many years of living in New Mexico with his wife and four children, he is proud to call the Land of Enchantment his home.

He is also a licensed applicator with the New Mexico Department of Agriculture. Reeves has 15 years of experience in the landscaping industry.
