Jeff Jones and his brother Tim grew up in landscaping. Their father, Bud Jones, began as a
farmer. After serving in World War II, Bud came home and tried his hand at mowing lawns.
“There was nobody in the commercial maintenance business,” said Jeff. “So Dad started in
1951 and did that for years.”
Jeff and his brother left for school, but soon after graduation, found themselves back in the family
business. They’ve been growing Bud Jones and Sons, Inc. ever since.
“The business has morphed over the years from what my father did initially, which was just
maintenance and mowing. Now we do a lot of design, building custom landscapes, retaining walls,
patios, pergolas, you name it.”
While the business has expanded, the values that founded it have remained laser focused.
“Dad was a hard worker and very particular about how things were done. And that’s one of those
things you kind of want to remind people that work for you. Would you sign your name to this job?”
Part of that dedication meant choosing equipment that worked as hard as they did. That’s why
Bud Jones chooses STIHL. For over 40 years, STIHL has been a part of the Jones family, both
personally, on the farm, and professionally in the landscaping business.
“We use trimmers and backpack blowers daily. We have gas-powered and battery-powered hedge
trimmers. The products that we get from STIHL are long-lasting and seldom fail. It‘s just a good
product. There is a lot of orange STIHL on our trucks when they go out every day.”
