Stuart Donald Muche founded Stuart's Landscaping in the spring of 1986. At that time Stuart was operating out of a 240 sq. ft. garage with just a 1979 pickup truck, a wheelbarrow, and a couple of hand tools.
In July of 1986 less than one mile from that shed, Stuart and his wife Linda purchased 60 acres of land, with a house, a pole building, a farm tractor, a lawn tractor and more miscellaneous hand tools. For the first ten years after the 60 acres was purchased, Stuart's Landscaping office headquarters were located inside the family garage. Stuart, Linda, and their family still reside on those 60 acres today.
