John Paul Gachina

1.22.51 – 12.27.15

in loving memory

On December 27, 2015 the landscape industry lost one of its pioneering icons. Gachina Landscape Management lost its leader and an amazing human being. John truly enriched the life of everyone and everything he touched. No words can adequately express our sadness of John’s death or the gratitude for his friendship and the opportunity to work along side of him. He leaves behind a strong company and organization of passionate employees that will honor his memory by dedicating themselves to continue the work and service he loved so much. He is missed and remains in our hearts; never to be forgotten. John founded Gachina Landscape in 1988 after a year-long world-round tour. What he accomplished in his short life was remarkable.

Gachina Landscape Management will remain a family-owned business under the continued leadership of the Gachina Landscape Management leadership team.

Gachina Landscape Management

As always our team is thrilled to participate and be advocates for smart water management and conservation practices. Thanks for the shoutout Irrigation Association! #SmartIrrigationMonth #watermanagement #irrigation #BeSmart“Smart irrigation at Gachina starts with smart people. Having a great team that understands the whole irrigation system is the key to our success. Great products fail to deliver the outcomes we promise when we fail to educate and train properly. Smart irrigation means saving money, time and important water resources.” #SmartIrrigationMonth ... See MoreSee Less
