Man of faith, proud dad of two, loving husband -- Cliff lives by the Golden Rule.
Growing up with a passion for all things outdoors, Cliff Jones studied Landscape Contracting and Landscape Architecture at
Mississippi State University.
After a few years working for land planning and engineering firms, Landscape Solutions started as a necessity to “get by” during the economic recession of 2009. Now 14 years later, Landscape Solutions has grown into a full scale design-build company, used to transform lives and outdoor spaces.
Cliff is passionate about entrepreneurship and using business as a force for good in Middle Tennessee and beyond.
