Tyler, Texas (FOX51) — When James Wilhite bought a purple petunia as a young boy, a seed was planted that led to the formation many years later to his own landscaping business. He earned a degree in horticulture at Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, moved to Tyler and - with the goal of being self-employed at something he enjoyed - he started Wilhite Landscape in 1983.
Celebrating 30 years now, Wilhite Landscape is a leader in the industry with an experienced, reputable landscape and horticultural team focused on quality work and customer satisfaction. With six divisions and 35 employees, the company provides professional landscape and maintenance services in Tyler and all of East Texas.
Wilhite Landscape offers a complete line of outdoor services for residential and commercial clients including landscaping, lawn care, water features, patios, drainage systems, retaining walls, walkways, garden and holiday lighting.
The company will hold an open house in celebration of their 30 years of service from 11:00 a.m., to 3:00 p.m., Friday, December 20, at their office located at 13186 Highway 64 West in Tyler. The public is invited to stop by, enjoy refreshments and meet the staff.
