OUR TEAM

Denis Roberts

Denis Roberts

CEO

When I was a lot younger, I played for the Philadelphia minor league. Love baseball! My Dad worked in operation of large equipment. Through it all I found that I had a deep interest in my environment and nature. Almost forty years ago I decided that I liked working outdoors more than I liked being inside working as a translator in Guarani, Spanish and Portuguese. I enjoy being an educated environmental steward.

Over the last forty years I received training in lawn and ornamental care, tree care, termite and Green Pest Management. The values that are reflected in our company culture is respect, honesty, kindness and improving as we grow. I have an amazing wife and children who are the light of my life. We have 5 sons, 4 daughters and 17 grandchildren, so far. When they all come home it is absolutely terrific, but is also very noisy! Love to see them come!

Landscape & Turf Manager

As the Nature’s Finest Landscape and Turf department manager my job is making your  landscape and turf healthy for a more beautiful home.

I am committed. 

I ensure that the correct treatments for your lawn and landscape are applied at the right time and in the correct way, protecting our environment for our future generations.  For example, in the fall I’ve seen others offer to kill the whiteflies on your crepe myrtles for about $150. My team and I will encourage you to wait until the leaves fall off.  That fly’s natural cycle is to die anyway when the leaves fall.  My attention to detail and knowledge of horticulture, ornamental diseases and life cycles of bugs gives me the skills to monitor your lawn and landscape and choose the treatment plan that is most effective. I have attention to detail creating a green and healthy lawn.  It usually makes your neighbor green with envy.  

My team will work to get rid of harmful bugs you have in your grass, plants, shrubs, or trees. We work to keep the good bugs that help the plants stay healthy, fighting off harmful bugs, and give your plants the beautiful blooms you look for. My best friend is my wife Liz, who is beautiful, talented and exceptionally smart and kind. We have four young children that keep us both on our toes.  Also, my wife tells me that I love to walk on the moonlit beach and that I have a wit that won’t quit.

Termite & Green Pest Manager

I have always enjoyed nature, and am fascinated as I study how organisms work together to maintain a balanced ecosystem.  That fascination motivated me to study Environmental Sciences at Florida State University.  I learned about practices that harm our environment and affect our treasured planet.

This is why I am committed to work with Nature’s Finest.  We make a difference in our community by providing excellent customer services and effective and safe pest management. We do this by having committed and well-trained staff who identify pests for treatment. I do my part by being up to date on new indoor pest control products, correctly identifying pest, and rotating products to prevent insect resistance to treatments. This not only gives us great results, but provides savings to the customer by doing the right things at the right time.  We don’t operate on a crisis management style but on a preventative focus giving you a healthy home, while putting less stress on the environment, protecting Mother Nature!
