Hi! I'm Richard Kriz, owner of Kriz Landscaping and Full Moon Landscape Lighting. I'm a Wake County native who grew up in Cary. I went to Catholic school for Elementary and Middle schools and Riverside Military Academy for high school until graduating in 1986. I went into the Marines in the summer of '86 and eventually became a Crew Chief of an Amphibious Assault Vehicle. I started my first landscaping job in 1990. I worked for a few landscape companies doing maintenance and then ended up as a Landscape Crew Leader at NC State University. I started Kriz Landscaping while at NC State and took the business into full-time operations in February of 1997. In 2002, I earned two state-level certifications (NC Registered Landscape Contractor and NC Certified Plant Professional). In 2008, I earned two national-level certifications in regards to pavers and block retaining walls. I have been doing landscape lighting, drainage, sod, waterfalls, etc. for many years as well.
