He moved to Charleston and for the next few years he worked as a superintendent in the landscape installation and maintenance industry. He subsequently started his own landscape business. Paul performed many high end landscape installations in the Charleston area. Paul met his future employer Russ Cooper of Russ Cooper Associates, Inc while performing a major landscape installation on a house that Russ was building on Fly Way Drive on Kiawah Island.
Russ noticed Paul’s strong work ethic and eye for detail and when the project was completed he offered Paul a position in his company. Paul continued to work for Russ for the next ten years, moving from general utility work to Project Manager. He was involved in twelve projects and was Project Manager of seven of these including: 99 Surfsong Road, Sasanqua Day Spa, 85 Blue Heron Pond Road and 61 Salthouse Lane.

David and Paul had worked on several projects together as the masonry division of Moffly Construction, Inc was a principal masonry sub contractor for Russ Cooper Associates, Inc. Knowing that they both shared the same sense of dedication and attention to detail, a business partnership was the inevitable choice. Their first project together was a large home in Sea Island, Georgia which was completed in the summer of 2008.
Paul once asked a former client for advice in building a successful business. “Provide a superior product at a fair price with extraordinary service” he replied. This is the statement which continues to be Paul’s motivation
