Our Team

David Patton

Owner | Email

David is originally from Tuscaloosa, AL and moved to Nashville in 2001 to play baseball for Lipscomb University. After graduation and a few years in banking, it was time to start a new venture. Having spent many years on the diamond and being an avid golfer, he developed an appreciation for 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, fishing or watching college football. He and his wife Paige are blessed with two  great 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.

Josh Templeton

Josh is the newest member of the Pure Turf team. He is a Texas native that relocated to Nashville in 2019. Josh spent 3 years doing public health in the military and is currently in school working toward his degree in the same field. Meeting new customers and seeing their lawns transform is what he really enjoys about the job. When not at work Josh enjoys hiking, going to concerts and exploring Nashville.
