Bert Blair Founder of Yellow Rose Landscape ServicesIt was his dad’s influence as a North Texas home builder and his mother, founder of a prestigious private school in North Dallas, which instilled landscape appreciation and entrepreneurial thinking leading Bert to establish one of the most successful landscape companies in Texas.

In 1975, the moment Bert graduated from Texas Tech with a degree in Landscape Architecture, he began to literally “dig in” with his new young company. In 1981, Bert met Roger Staubach, who was not only a successful commercial real estate businessman (and former Dallas Cowboy Quarterback) but who also owned a well-regarded landscape services company. Both men shared similar business ethics and a sincere focus on quality. After a few discussions, Blair’s and Staubach’s companies merged to form Yellow Rose Landscape Services.

Thirty-plus years later, Bert’s personal design acumen and proactive management style have created some of the most beautiful residential and commercial landscapes in North Texas. Bert is past president of the Texas Association of Landscape Contractors and is highly regarded in the industry for creating one of the best company cultures – with the lowers team turnover ratio in the area.

Bert’s generosity and dedication to the DFW Community are well known. You will see Bert’s imprint on many school athletic fields, which he and his team designed and constructed, pro bono. Committed to the North Texas area, Bert has given his time and energy to various boards. The Spring Valley Athletic Association, Parish Episcopal School, The Shelton School, and Mercy Street Ministries are just a few that have benefited from Bert’s involvement. In addition, Bert volunteered his time and athletic talents as a coach in the Select Baseball League and as the baseball coach for Shelton School. His coaching has left a positive influence on hundreds of young men.
