Born and raised in the small town of Locust Fork, AL, Zeb King found himself at home in Pike Road after earning his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University and quickly becoming a partner at Taylor Crossing Animal Hospital. At the age of 16, Zeb started his own landscaping company and worked his way through college following his passion for creating beautiful outdoor environments. In addition to his vet practice, Zeb is also the owner and operator of King Landscape Services, which he founded in 2001. His work in landscaping spreads from Pike Road, Montgomery, and the Lake Martin areas giving him opportunities to meet new people and help them create outdoor spaces that they love. In his free time, Zeb enjoys spending time with his kids, Ragan and Waylon, being outdoors, and caring for the animals on their farm.
Ben Lassiter, a native of Pike Road, AL, was born with a passion for working with the land. From a young age, Ben loved working for his dad and grandad at Lassiter Construction Company, operating heavy equipment and building beautiful ponds, that was their specialty.

After earning his degree, Ben took a job with C and C Constractors, where he oversaw the development of the Alabama National Cemetery in Montevallo, AL. He later took a job as an estimator/project manager with Dubose Construction that put him closer to home in Pike Road.
