About Us

Robert Thomas About UsOur family business began in 1976 when we started growing and digging trees around the country and supplying them for major nurseries. We had a wheel loader, a tree digger and a semi-tractor. In 1982, our business grew when we started designing landscapes and constructing them. We started out with 4 employees and continued to grow into the 1990’s with over 60 employees, 6 landscape construction crews and a 5 acre nursery. During our years of construction, our family got to be real pros at designing and installing the best landscapes that our area has ever seen. We were fortunate enough to create the landscapes for clients such as DTE (formerly Pine Knob), The Palace of Auburn Hills and several other large venues.

In 2004, the business grew some more when Larry Gilling joined ownership of the company. With working on the crews his entire life, and the family teaching him the correct way to work with clients to create truly unique landscapes. We have continued to grow as an honest contractor who does quality work. Through the past 40 years in the landscape field, we have gone through many changes. The one thing that hasn’t changed though has been the principles that our family started when they began in 1976, safety, quality and honesty. Today our company works as a team, and we take a lot of pride in our work. Robert-Thomas Landscape Environments would like to work with you as part of your team as well.
