Tony D. Hyatt – President
Bio: As a small child, Tony used to visit his cousins in a small rural farming town in eastern NC. He would watch them jump on Farmall tractors and drive around like it was second nature. Despite being similar in age, he was never given the approval to drive himself, mainly because of inexperience and unfamiliarity with the machine. In 1980, when Tony decided to start his own business, he went out and traded his first car for a tractor! From there, he began to form what is now Hyatt Landscaping, Inc. The level of professionalism and commitment that was nurtured in the early days of the company are still prevalent in all facets of the company today. His fascination with tractors and machines has allowed him to become a master operator on many different types of equipment. For years he has worked closely with residential customers and home builders to create beautiful landscapes that have stood the test of time. During those years, he was able to realize the importance of proper grading and drainage, which has made him an expert in custom drainage solutions. For over 30 years, Tony has learned first hand how to install beautiful landscaping projects.

Joshua C. Hyatt – Vice President
Bio: Growing up in a family where his father owned a landscaping company gave Josh a familiarity with the industry at an early age. He used to love riding on tractors and in dump trucks as a kid. As he grew older, what was once a playground became an automatic summer job. This taught him to have a good work ethic and began to unknowingly prepare him for what would ultimately become his career. After high school, Josh went on to NC State where he studied Landscape Design and minored in Spanish. In addition to the classroom education, he was able to participate in a couple of internship programs as well as complete a study abroad course in Valencia, Spain. After college, Josh returned home and began working at Hyatt Landscaping, Inc. Since then he has had the opportunity to work directly under the experienced leadership of his father. Josh has developed a passion for many specific aspects of the industry which gives him a unique position in the business.
