BASED IN NORTH CAROLINA, YARD NIQUE SERVES A NICHE HOA MARKET IN FLORIDA, GEORGIA AND THE CAROLINAS
It’s a quintessential American success story. Brian DuMont grew up helping his dad in the yard and dreaming of becoming a professional baseball player. But then reality set in, and he decided to go to school for landscape horticulture. Right out of college, he launched his own company and today, 24 years later, he’s overseeing 450 employees and projects in four states.
DuMont came up with the idea for Yard Nique while dealing with a difficult boss one summer after his junior year in college. So that fall he submitted a business plan to his horticulture professor at NC State. His mission was simple: Start a landscaping company that treats others the way you’d want to be treated.
Not only has this mantra been good for business, it’s been good for employee retention. DuMont has watched employees marry and raise a family, then have their own children come to work for Yard Nique.
