SCOTT CURTI, CLT- Owner, President
2005 Leadership Rockland Alumni
Scott is the president and owner of Curti's Landscaping, Inc. and Curti & Associates, ltd. Scott began to cut lawns in his sophomore year of High School- even purchased his first truck prior to obtaining his driver's license and paid his older friends/"employees" to drive so that he could keep his growing base of customers satisfied. Scott formally founded Curti's Landscaping, Inc. shortly after graduating High School in 1991. At this time, mainly focusing on lawn maintenance, first cutting then adding chemical and other maintenance services he was fortunate enough to rapidly grow to service over 100 customers per season. Curti's Landscaping, Inc. currently provides Full Service Grounds Maintenance programs to a combined 300+ residential, commercial, corporate and industrial clients.
In 2003 Scott earned the international recognition of Certified Landscape Technician- (CLT) establishing credentials by demonstrating mastery of a body of knowledge recognized as the international standard. Scott met standards for safe and effective operation of machinery and showed a thorough understanding of all facets of the position of an exterior Landscape professional through the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET). He is one of only three contractors in Rockland County to earn this designation. Scott is one of the most dedicated young professionals committed to improving the landscape industry throughout Rockland and its surrounding areas. This was recently recognized by the Rockland Economic Development Corporation as Scott was nominated and honored among forty individuals under the age of 40 whose accomplishments and commitment to the community identify them as the individuals to watch in the future of Rockland County.
Since 1997, Scott has been developing a design/build division, which now stands alone as its own company- Curti & Associates, ltd., offers increasingly extensive landscape design and construction services. Scott finds that it has been extremely fulfilling- although slightly tougher, to grow than the Grounds Maintenance company. In recent years, opportunities in Construction have presented themselves through doors opened while growing Curti & Associates, ltd. Scott describes these endeavors as "most enjoyable and successful". He likes to call Curti's Landscaping his roots (which one should never forget), Curti & Associates his trunk (sturdy) and the construction projects his branches (where new growth takes place). Each relies on the other so Scott is quite happy to manage them all day-to-day.
