The Team

James Alexander


James started mowing grass in 1998 and has turned that passion for landscape into what Alexander’s is today. As well as owner, James is involved in the day to day operations and works closely with customers and crews. You may see him on a property in one of the bright orange safety t-shirts, side by side with our crews! James has a passion for classic cars and trucks, and enjoys riding his Harley and spending time in the outdoors.
