Being the son of a carpenter builder, our founder, Stephen Shears, and his two older brothers always spent their childhood summers working on construction sites. Becoming tired of getting coffee for the crew and loading dumpsters with debris, Stephen took the leap of faith and started his own business during his senior year of high school. With one truck, a lawn mower, and a great work ethic, he began to turn his dreams into a reality.
In 2011, he began to see this opportunity as a career; he applied his passion and drive into creating artwork while redesigning his customers' properties. .
Years later, he continues to excel with his powerful work ethic while providing his customers with the best service they can receive. As the company continues to expand with equipment and reliable employees, SLC is becoming a premiere landscape contractor company in the Morris County area.
When Stephen is away from the landscape scene, he enjoys spending time with his fiancé, Amanda, and their dogs. He also enjoys playing and coaching hockey for middle school children in his spare time.
