You could say Jason Focht's love for grass is rooted in his love for golf. He started playing the game in childhood, then went on to become captain of the golf team at Fluvanna County High School. After graduation, he pursued a double major in horticulture and turfgrass management at Virginia Tech. There, his two loves combined: he spent his summers working at high-end golf courses, and semesters honing his expertise at the university's Turfgrass Research Center. Today, Focht puts his experience to use as the head of Paradise Landscaping. He and his team focus on turfgrass, landscape planning, and ousting pests from greenery as they tend to lawns and gardens around Botetourt County.
