Patrick Davidson - Design/Sales
Patrick joined 99 North in 2017 after owning Davidson Landscaping for 19 years. Matt and I had become friends through the two construction industries in 2005. Looking for indoor work during the winter I helped with installation of kitchens and baths. Once the snow melted Matt and I decided to combine our experience in the building industry, giving up Davidson Landscaping wasn’t a easy choice but it felt like the right one after how at home it felt and how well I enjoyed the remodeling side of construction. I currently bring 19 years of business experience in design and sales. Living in the country with my wife and three daughters we enjoy our hobby farm, bailing hay for our critters, gathering eggs from our coop and of course driving the toys!
