    Phil grew up in Hermann and moved to Union in 1983. He's married and has two kids. He is passionate about what he does and enjoys what nature has to offer. He particularly loves the Missouri River and the history it brings. When he's not in the yellow & gold uniform, you can find Phil giving back to the community, reading, traveling, or playing around on his jet ski.

    Fun Fact: Phil has been in the landscaping business since 1976. He purchased Platt Landscaping in 2004 and became a Grounds Guys Franchisee in 2012!
