Owner Rich Miller began his career in the green industry and landscape design by cutting lawns over 14 years ago. After several months, he left his regular job and never looked back. That business grew into a thriving all-phase landscape contracting business and he grew professionally as an irrigation specialist.
In 2014 he obtained his Landscape Irrigation Auditor (CLIA) certification which allowed him to offer irrigation auditing services. He also became listed as an EPA WaterSense contractor with his local municipality.
These certifications helped him to design with water conservation and efficiency in mind. He provided hundreds of system modifications to clients who were connected to potable water, which in turn conserved water and reduced costs.
He also began using AxisDE (diatomaceous earth) on all of his sod installation projects. This soil amendment further helped in reducing irrigation inputs.
Additionally, Rich earned Certified Irrigation Contractor (CIC) in 2018 and relocated the Tampa Bay market to join SiteOne landscape supply as a business development manager. This experience further crystallized his drive to work directly with water purveyors, municipalities and water managers as an irrigation consultant and Florida State irrigation contractor.
His company, Rich Miller Landscape Service, Inc. is also now an exclusive sales agent for AxisDE in the state of Florida, Puerto Rico and US territories in the Caribbean.
He believes his offering to the marketplace to be complete and more efficient. The smart water triangle of controls, system components, and soil science can now be promoted in a whole new way to the Tampa Bay marketplace.
