Knott’s did a beautiful job planting trees and shrubs in my yard. Doug Knott was very helpful with suggestions, but also made sure I got the “wow” factor I wanted! The team who did the work was terrific: professional, courteous, and a joy to have around. I highly recommend this company!

Thanks to these folks, I’ve forgotten what the color brown looks like.

About Us

a leap of faith

In 2004, after throwing around several ideas for starting a new business, Michelle and Doug Knott sold their Connecticut home and moved to Michelle's hometown of Nashua, NH. With the financial and spiritual support of his in-laws, Hank & Marie Labine, Doug got a mower, then a truck, and then an employee. The company has grown exponentially ever since. 

From day one, Michelle has been the foundation for the administrative side of the business. The children have been dragged into– excitedly volunteered, rather, to work in the business too: performing various tasks from entering gas receipts to field work to sales.

Along the way we have managed to keep our promise, and plan to for the rest of our days.
