The seeds of Blake Enloe's business were planted when he mowed his first yard at age 10.
"That's all I ever did when I was a kid," he said. "I bought my first mower when I was 13."
At age 16, he bought his first truck. The following year, he bought a snowplow for the truck and continued offering lawn-care services throughout his school years.
In March 2005, he started Legacy Lawn and Landscape, which was renamed
Legacy Corporation in 2009.
What started out as a one man company now employs almost 20 people, including laborers, operators, truck drivers, mechanics, office staff and project managers.

A company is only as strong as its executive leadership and ours is exceptional. Blake Enloe, owner of Legacy Corporation has worked his way to the top. He started as a young boy with a lawn care company and turned it into a successful corporation. Blake is a hands on person and you'll likely find him working in the field as opposed to behind a desk.
One piece of advice he lives by is something his great-grandfather told his dad -- it isn't about what you know, it's who you know. "My goal in life has been to know as many people as I can". "Networking is a huge key to being in business."
