Richard A. Goldstein
President

Rich founded Green Meadows in 1982, and incorporated in 1984. He began with the goal of providing personalized services, high quality maintenance, and skilled landscape construction: characteristics that he felt were lacking in the industry. His commitment to customer service and understanding of its importance are the reason for the company’s growing list of long-term customers. He is also a licensed pesticide applicator, certified landscape technician, and an ICPI-certified installer. Rich currently serves on the board of the New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association (NJLCA).

Justin Flatow
Director of Landscape Maintenance

Justin has been leading the Landscape Maintenance and Snow & Ice operations at Green Meadows for the better part of a decade. While maintaining an ever-growing list of clients, from turf maintenance accounts to snow removal accounts, he can easily prove why Green Meadows is far above industry standards for commercial and residential landscaping. Justin serves on the Board of Directors for the New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association (NJLCA), as well as a co-chair on the New Jersey Turf Grass Association.
