At our homegrown landscape company in Monaca, Pennsylvania, we firmly believe that our success is due to the hard work of our talented and professional staff. William T. Tuma mowed his first lawn in 1956, founding the business, which is under the direction of his son Randy S. Tuma. There is even a third generation involved, Wade Tuma, Project Manager.
Following are brief bios of the dedicated staff of our landscaping company. These professionals are the ones responsible for the beauty of your yard or grounds.
Randy S. Tuma, Owner & President
Randy became the owner of the company in 1992 and currently serves as the president. He was just 12 years old in 1971 when he started with the family business. He has a degree in Landscape Architecture from Cornell University in New York and is a certified pesticide applicator in three categories. He designs landscaping on both large and small projects. Randy lives just a few hundred feet from the business.
William T. Tuma, Founder
Bill started Tuma Lawn Service in 1956 and has served as an integral part of the company ever since. He sold the company to his son in 1992 and retired in 2012. Although Bill passed in 2016, he remains an inspiration to everyone at Tuma Lawn Service and Landscaping, as he taught us the value of hard work and the importance of always doing the job right.
