Craig Attkisson

B.S. Turf Grass, Horticulture – Virginia Tech

Craig entrepreneured his landscaping business mowing baseball and soccer fields at the age of 10. His love of those fields, and clients’ satisfaction, inspired him to explore the green industry. Raised on a Christmas tree farm, he knew working outdoors with plants and turf were his life’s passions. He spent summers on the Maintenance staff of Hanover Country Club. Eager to expand his knowledge, Craig earned degrees in Turf grass and Horticulture from Virginia Tech. During his studies, he traveled to South Africa to research cultural diversity, climates, agrometeorology and large-scale irrigation. Upon returning to the U.S., Craig worked with all three Country Club of Virginia courses, gaining a vast knowledge of turf maintenance and valuable supplier connections. Craig then joined Hermitage Country Club as Second Assistant Superintendent. While maintaining turf was satisfying, Craig’s deep interest in plantings equipped him to launch Green Side Up Landscaping.
