Gregory Cunningham –


Gregory Cunningham developed Ground Care Landscaping LLC in 2004.  A native of the Merrimack Valley, Gregory attended Central Catholic High School. During this time he would work summers in the landscaping field; learning the trade.  Following high school Gregory attended Merrimack College to pursue his Bachelor’s degree in Business.

As he did throughout high school, Gregory continued working in different fields of landscaping during his summer vacations. He expanded his knowledge of everything from plants to grounds maintenance and landscape construction. The more he learned about the many aspects of landscape contracting, the more excited he became about the prospects of providing landscaping services in his own business.

Gregory’s passion for being outdoors, his knowledge of business,  and his enthusiasm for a challenge has grown Ground Care Landscaping to the company it is today. His dedication to customer service involves keeping the client in mind at all times.  Gregory has lived in the Merrimack Valley area his entire life.
