Evergreen Landcaping and Irrigation Co.
Evergreen Landscaping and Irrigation Co, the trusted business we know today, started in 1979.
The original owner, Charles "Bing" Cherry, worked at the local country club and while there helped install an automated sprinkler system. From that moment on he knew he found something he enjoyed doing and could happily make a successful business. Evergreen Landscaping and Irrigation Company was born.
For the first 15 years he focused solely on automated sprinkler systems, building a trustworthy local business in Miles City, and eventually all over southeastern Montana. As Bing spent more time in this industry, he decided in order for his company to grow, he needed more to offer. He started working with other landscapers and gained the experience needed to start providing this service on his own.
Evergreen Landscaping was truly built on community support, loyal customers and employees who made this company not only a business but a family in its own right. After 40 years of dedicated work, Bing sold Evergreen Landscaping and Irrigation Co. to Yellowstone Environmental Contracting and has been enjoying a well-earned retirement. It is the goal of YEC to continue the growth, community support and family-like atmosphere that is the foundation of this company.
