Planting seeds for growing biz

Charlotteans often seek a landscape designer who’s not only a knowledgeable professional but also can be a trusted adviser for one of their most valued possessions — their yard. Carole Joyner and Bruce Benfield have a knack for fulfilling both roles. And they have about 30 years of experience working together in Charlotte. Those are the key reasons why their 6½-year-old company, Joyner-Benfield Distinctive Land and Waterscape, has been able to rely solely on referrals. The Charlotte Business Journal, April 29, 2011
