Josh is a Halifax County, VA native. He earned an associate’s degree from Southside Virginia Community College in 2007 and joined our team in 2011. 

He has an exquisite attention to detail and his passion and vision for creating and designing our customers’ landscape is a direct result as to why he is one of our leading managers. In 2013, when the company decided to become more competitive with developing and providing hardscape installation, he quickly carried over his position attributes in landscape design and applied it to the hardscape division.

Charles Anderson

Charles was born and raised in Halifax County, VA and is the owner and founder of Anderson Outdoor Solutions (then Charles Anderson Lawn Care Service, Inc.).

He started the company in 1983 by mowing a few lawns on a part-time basis to make extra money while also having a full-time job at a local business. 

He began developing a loyal customer base, which allowed him the opportunity to hire his first employee – his mother! 
Over the next several years, what started out as a part-time business venture was turned into a successful full-time professional lawn care company. 

The company has since grown to over 30 full-time employees and has transformed over the years into the most recognizable lawn care and landscaping companies in the region.

Bruce Anderson
Vice President & Operations Manager

Bruce was born and raised in Halifax County, VA and graduated from Halifax County High School in 2002. He attended Danville Community College and earned an associate degree in criminal justice there. 

In 2004, while continuing his education as a full-time student at Danville, he also worked full-time for his father’s (Charles) company. 
It was immediately clear that he possessed the same work ethic and attention to detail that his father had when he first started the company in 1983. His ability to manager others, along with his positive and effective leadership style has helped create an environment and company culture that has attracted the best TEAM (Bruce’s favorite word) of workers in the industry. 


His passion for the company to always be the #1 lawn and landscape company in the area, and to always provide the highest quality work to achieve client satisfaction, has proven to be an extremely successful and powerful attribute. 

With the help and support of his father, he has nurtured and steered the family company from a part-time business venture into the organization it is today.
