What We Do

LDC is a Lula, Georgia based company offering services in the Southeast with over twenty years of passionate landscaping and nursery experience. 

We specialize in overgrown landscapes, complete design & installation of commercial and residential projects. Our past experience has also given us an edge in hardscaping;  patios, pavers, waterfalls and ponds, outdoor lighting and walkways. In addition, we’re happy to offer on-site landscaping estimates to the surrounding areas free of charge.

Our History

LDC started many years ago and has undergone a transformation or two, but their service has always remained the same; reliable and trustworthy. In 1991 Tom Richards started LDC because of his passion for green environments. A year later, Tom met Mark Cohea of Force Ten Irrigation and Lighting. By 1995 they had realized their collaboration was one of purpose and dedication, leading them to merge the two companies to create the LDC that we know of today. For the following 5 years Tom and Mark worked together building a company they knew would be the best in the business.

However, in 2000, once in a lifetime business opportunities in the motor sports industry called the two away from LDC, and they sold the business. This exciting venture led the two to work with the likes of Panoz, Motorsports, Nascar, The Indy Racing League, Avenger Chassis and the Scale Racing League. This course allowed Mark and Tom to grow as business owners, but they were soon called back to LDC. 

In 2012 Mark was asked to return to the company as a managing member, continuing to build the LDC brand. Russell Hulsey of CRI Irrigation had purchased LDC, combining his background and experience with Mark’s, which proved to be a winning combination.  One of Mark’s first calls was made to Tom to rejoin him- they had decided to keep the heritage and brand of LDC growing. Today the three run LDC with complete and wholehearted devotion, dedicated to their customers and dedicated to knowing the value of commitment.

Community Involvement

At LDC we’re not just interested in landscaping and water features, we’re interested in people and what affects their lives. We believe in a strong community and that’s why we support Camp Kudzu, Wounded Warrior Project and offer discounts to our disabled veterans. We also sponsor the Buford Wolves baseball team at Buford High School. To see more of what’s happening in our community find us on Facebook!
