About John Spray Landscapes

John Spray, Owner

John Spray, President and owner of John Spray Landscapes, Inc., has had a lifelong appreciation for the natural world.  John was raised in north central New Mexico and spent his youth in the outdoors.  He began his career in turf grasses and ornamental plants pushing a mower in high school.  After high school John attended New Mexico State University.  John worked his way through college doing maintenance at the universities’ golf course.

He received a bachelor of science in agriculture with an emphasis on turf grass management and pest management.  John, with advice from a mentor, took an entry level position with a large golf course construction contractor.  He started in the irrigation division installing golf course irrigation systems.  He continued to learn and progress up the corporate ladder, eventually gaining the position of construction superintendent.  In this position John was responsible for all aspects of the construction project, which included all the dirt work, drainage, irrigation, cart path, ponds, pump stations, grassing, tees, greens, bunkers and interaction with the owners and architects.

 

 Landscaping Experience

John started, complete, or simply assisted on 43 golf courses in 23 states which gave him the rugged individualism and drive to take on new challenges.  This was the catalyst for John staying in Billings and starting John Spray Landscapes, Inc.

In 2009 John founded and named his company after himself, hoping that customers and future clients would know John was signing his name to every project. John wants every customer to know that whether the project is big or small, golf course or grandmas raised flower bed, it is important, deserving complete commitment.

The company evolved and began doing hydro seeding and erosion control.  Hydro seeding and native grass land reclamation became a passion for John.

He had always been planting and growing plants, now he was doing it in an environment where God is completely in control. We now take those ideas and apply them to more urban style landscapes with hydro seeding replacing sod, high efficiency sprinkler systems, proper management of top soil, the use of xerigation, and more native space.  Creating a better space with green space has always been a guiding principle in the company.

John strives and emphasizes that learning and trying new things has to be part of a plant professionals job, the natural world is always evolving.
