About Paragon Landscape Management

Kevin Harrison & Jonathan Reed have co-owned Paragon Landscape Management since 2005. After spending 7 years as trading partners at First Union National Bank and Wachovia Bank in Charlotte, NC we decided to take our professional relationship to the community. Our vision was to be the most efficient and knowledgeable landscape professionals in the industry, to train relentlessly and to educate ourselves at the highest level in every aspect of the business. We only hire the most qualified professionals to execute every project according to our very high standards.

With the addition of our head of design & sales, Jason Birch, in 2008, we have evolved to become a professional turn-key landscape company with an impeccable resume. We now hold licenses in landscape contracting, irrigation contracting and pesticide application. We have completed hundreds of projects in the fields of landscape, landscape design, irrigation & masonry, and have left countless customers 100% satisfied in our wake.
