About Us

Richard Hoverman, President - Richard comes from a family of landscape nurserymen and was raised on Hoverman Nurseries in NJ.  He graduated with a degree in horticulture and design from Delaware Valley College in PA.  After listening to a lot of John Denver music, he then moved west to Colorado in 1975 and worked in landscape design sales and garden center management until joining Autumn Gold Landscapes in 1985.  In the last 28 years Richard has climbed all of Colorado’s 54 14ers and has worked with thousands of satisfied customers.

Jerry Viator, VP - Jerry has worked in landscape construction for 30 years and came to Autumn Gold Landscapes in 1993.  He has been in charge of production since 1999, making sure the projects get completed on time, on budget and pays close attention to the specific details of each job.  Jerry received his CLT in 1997 through the Association of Landscape Contractors of Colorado.  He also supervises our landscape maintenance division which began in 2010.  Jerry, as a young man, climbed one 14er, but now enjoys spending time with his family, his grand-daughter and league bowling.
