Founded in 2007, our goal is to be the pioneer of change within our community.  Our mission is to provide superior landscaping services to all clients while providing employment opportunities for at risk members of the community.

Richmond Virginia is a beautiful city that is centered around the beautiful James River, which flows through its center. Its a city full of history and beautiful architecture. From Monument Avenue to Forest Hill, beautiful views abound. Since Richmond is the capital of Virginia it is only fitting that it be well appointed and well maintained. 

Our Story

Earl Gary, a Richmond native, graduated from Old Dominion University with a degree in electrical engineering. With this he worked as an energy engineer with a local company. This gave him additional experience working with contractors and commercial properties. He soon began to branch out to include some residential projects which all led to the formation of his company YME Landscape in 2007. He obtained his Class A contracting license in 2016.
