As a long–time garden center owner, Warren Patterson was frustrated with the costly and time-consuming traditional process of ordering product and came to the realization that his industry was severely behind in the move to the digital world. From this moment of awareness, he researched possible online solutions, only to find that there was a alarming gap with online adoption in other industries like his own. Thus, he set out to resolve the issue by creating an online ordering solution, targeting those fragment industries in a way that leverages the “network effects” of modern platforms.

Our goal here at LinkGreen is to establish ourselves as the authority in the Lawn & Garden industry for online commerce and B2B connectivity, with future expansion into other fragmented industries.
