About Us

Our Beginnings

Terry Trost founded our company, fresh out of high school in 1975, and incorporated in 1979. We’ve grown organically ever since into one of the premier, most trusted Irrigation and Low Voltage Lighting contractors in our region. We are a family business and take pride in having multiple key employees who have been team members for well over 30 years! With almost one hundred team members annually, we are large enough to trust, and small enough to care about projects of all sizes.

Meet the Team

Terry Trost


Terry is our founder. He started this company out of his pickup truck, working out of his home in 1975.
He moved into his first office in 1979 and became officially incorporated. Today, we have 6,000 square
feet of office space sitting on almost 2 acres of property, with over 30 vehicles! He is active in the
oversight and direction of the company as he takes a step back from the day-to-day operations. All our
key team members have worked for Terry for 3+ decades, so that makes this well-deserved transition
much easier for him/us!

Bob wears manY hats, from responsibilities in the office to being out in the field selling and running jobs
as well.

Doug Trost

Doug is Terry’s youngest child. Doug runs and handles most of our larger projects. He has had a love for
the new construction and installation side of the business his whole life and has been getting his hands
