Chris Ray formed HVL in 2001. His goal was to create amazing landscapes for residential clients. The goal remains the same 20 years later. Chris takes an active role in the company, being on site for the majority of projects to ensure the quality is above customer expectations. With a philosophy that bigger is not always better, Chris has been able to build a successful business with extremely skilled staff who take pride in their work and treat the clients with integrity and respect. For Chris, landscaping is not work. Its a passion to create Beautiful Landscapes that are Professionally Built. When Chris is not landscaping he spends time with his family and enjoys cycling and skiing.
