Young’s Legacy Landscaping

Following his lifetime passion for landscaping and specimen trees, Scott Deniston partnered with Tony Medina and formed Young’s Legacy Landscaping. Together Scott and Tony ran the landscape crew for Young’s Nurseries installing landscapes for numerous landscape architects ranging cost from $200 up to 1.5 million dollars. Over 25 years we installed 25 to 40 million dollars of plantings.
