Southwest Lawns was founded in 1986 by Richard Furman after retiring from a sixteen year career as a professional drummer. Much to his surprise, the music business proved to have been great training ground for dealing with customers (working with musicians requires much diplomacy & sensitivity).

Having started a family, he knew that success was imperative. Through classes at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, taking courses in turf & landscape management at TSU, joining professional organizations, & networking with knowledgeable mentors, he gained the ability to approach his business in a responsible way.

Cindy Furman came on board in 1996 after a long career as a backup singer. Trained by Richard, she became a master gardener while also taking over the company management.
