Dick Tucker - Tucker and Associates

Dick Tucker (Owner / GM)

In 1974 Dick resigned from a marketing position with IBM, borrowed Uncle Jimmy’s truck, and teamed up with SFA fraternity brother, Klip Morefield, to start Sun Valley Landscape, Inc. (SVL) in Houston. While Dick’s knowledge was limited in the beginning, his commitment to quality workmanship, over the top customer service, and a burning desire to be the leader in his profession has remained constant throughout his career. SVL quickly became a premier landscaping company. In 1982, after selling SVL, he and his wife, Alaine, and their three sons moved back to his beloved East Texas and settled in Longview. For the next nineteen years Dick served as owner and general manager of The Court House Athletic Club and general manager of Oak Forrest Country Club. With the encouragement of his oldest son Brannon, Dick thought it was time to see if the East Texas area was ready for a professional landscape company; it was! In 2001, he established Tucker & Associates. The response far exceeded his expectations.

In 2002, he expanded his offering by traveling to San Diego to train with one of the top landscape lighting designers in America, Nate Mullins. He then established Landscape Lighting Systems of East Texas (which has become East Texas Nightscapes). That same year, Dick and Brannon went to Scottsdale, AZ to receive training to install synthetic golf greens from the largest and most respected golf green construction company in the world, Southwest Greens.

Dick’s passion and talent for all aspects of landscape design and construction have paved the way to the development of exceptional landscape projects all over East Texas.
