Our Team

David Patton

Owner | Email

David grew up in Tuscaloosa, AL and moved to Nashville in 2001 to play baseball for Lipscomb University. After graduation and a few years in banking, he knew it was time to start a new venture. Spending many years on the diamond and being an avid golfer, David had logged a lot of time on high quality turf. He turned that passion into a profession, founding Pure Turf in 2007. When out of the office he’s usually on the golf course, hunting or watching college football. He and his wife Paige are blessed with two awesome kids, Charlotte & Foster.

 

Ryan Trudell

Ryan is from northeast Mississippi and moved to Nashville in 2012. He’s been in the lawn care industry since 2011 and really enjoys seeing the way lawns transform under his care. When he’s not taking care of turf, he’s fishing, camping or playing disc golf.

Gill White

Gill is a turf industry veteran having been in the business since 2003. He’s an Indiana native who relocated to Nashville to join Pure Turf in 2013. When he’s not making grass green, he’s playing golf, snowmobiling, boating, or waxing his mustang.

Stuart Chandler

Stuart is a Nashville native but mostly raised in Knoxville, TN. He ran track for the University of Tennessee and graduated in 2014. He’s been in the lawn care industry since 2015 and really enjoys seeing the positive results from his work. Away from the office he’s usually in the gym, hanging out with family, or at a sporting event cheering on the Vols, Preds, or Titans.
