Total Turf Landscaping & Design Company
Welcome to Total Turf, the preeminent residential and commercial landscaping design company serving all of Westchester County and several communities throughout Connecticut.
If you’re a homeowner looking for ways to enhance your garden or turn your yard into a spectacular outdoor space, then you’ve come to the right landscape design and construction provider.
Degrees in Agronomy and Environmental Science from Delaware Valley College would be a great start for a successful landscaping business. But Total Turf’s President, Jason Gordon, started much younger, 13 to be exact. He started working on a golf course in New Hampshire with his uncle every summer until he started college. “I’ve played golf since I was teenager, and still do, but now free time is spent with my wife, Mary Beth, boating, pursuing healthy cuisine and running a business that I love.”
Jason finds all aspects of running Total Turf to his liking. “Working on beautiful estates and HOA’s, managing landscape projects with multiple disciplines including plantings, irrigation, masonry and maintenance give me such a thrill. Planning where my business will go in the next five years also appeals to me.” Good thing Jason considers himself a “morning person!"
While construction supervisor, Jared LaTour, may have his hands full at home with a new 9 month old son, Lucas, he loves his days at Total Turf. (Particularly the days when irrigation and lighting are on the calendar!). Maybe the fact that Jared grew up on a farm in Athens, NY that he still gets a thrill when digging in the dirt on big projects, “especially on jobs that require the use of heavy equipment.” Jared has an AS Degree in Recreational Sports Turf and a BA in Golf Course Turf Management from SUNY Cobleskill.
Our horticulturist Ed Sporin was born into the business and has stuck with it for many obvious reasons. “Being outside, working with the variety of species we get to install and having time with my family in the outdoors and at church is just perfect by me.” Ed’s family operated a nursery and small landscaping business ( “It’s in my blood” he says) in Westchester that he grew up working in. His love for the flowers and outdoors (Ed loves hiking with his family) was solidified during his time. “It just suits me” he says of his work with Total Turf for the last 9 years.
Plants. The outdoors and working with plants are the passion of Total Turf’s Maintenance Supervisor, German Manzo. When German has time off he enjoys his 3 kids (ages 2, 12 and a 21yr student at Manhattanville College) and catching up on soccer games from around the world, especially his home team, Mexico.
The heart of Total Turf is our office manager, Gina Pennacchio. Often the first point of contact and always reachable, Gina makes things happen. Her love of “anything with numbers”, and an energy derived from raising 3 daughters 12, 17 & 22 and a history as an entrepreneur, make her our ideal customer service leader. Gina is proud of her AS in business administration and bookkeeping certificate from SUNY DCC, but her Pittsburgh Steelers are her passion. “I am an insane Steelers fan!”
