Who We Are

Altered Grounds was originally started in 2001. After graduating college and having worked for over 4 years of construction within the green industry, founder Eric Modeer decided to take off on the journey of operating a landscape business on his own. He purchased a pick-up truck and trailer, and then began work with various residential installation projects…
