Yards of all sizes look good thanks to Yard Works and their dedication to outstanding landscaping services and products. From specialized mulch and soil for home gardeners to large land clearing projects, Yard Works is Central Virginia’s leading manufacturer and recycler of premier landscape products.

In 2015, Bill Stinson, majority owner, and John Kauzlarich, chief financial officer, were looking for a financial partner to put them on track to reach their financial goals. Chad Harcum, executive vice president and director of corporate banking, helped them to develop a revenue and growth plan that included a series of acquisitions over several years. “Chad was a major help with our first acquisition in Williamsburg, and because of that, we decided to move all of our business to TowneBank,” says John. “It’s been a great partnership, and we’ve never looked back.”

“Seven years and five acquisitions later, Yard Works hit the goals we developed at our first meeting. What’s more, their growth has put them on the national radar, leading to a recent sale to a major national buyer in their industry – a huge nod to their success as a company,” says Chad.  “I’ve really enjoyed helping them expand their business. It’s pretty cool to be a part of that."

Yard Works has eight locations and over 100 employees, serving homeowners, landscapers, gardeners, lawn care companies, and the construction industry. Beyond beautifying spaces, Yard Works is committed to helping the environment. The company recycles debris that otherwise may have been burned or taken to a landfill and works with paper companies and sawmills to turn their byproducts into mulch.

Whether discussing growth strategy or navigating critical business decisions, Yard Works knows that the TowneBank team is just a call away.

“This relationship is about more than balance sheets and lending. It’s really about the rewarding friendships we’ve developed, and it’s a big part of what makes TowneBank special,” says Chad.
