Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply announced organizational changes to better position the company for future growth, while improving ongoing support for its more than 200 locations. Ewing is the largest family-owned supplier of landscape and water management products in the country.
To support these efforts, Ewing implemented five strategic transitions to provide greater and more focused support to its stores and employees.

“Our new company structure is positioning Ewing for growth through increased support and resources for our customers, employees and stores. We have a tenured executive team, leading our efforts and creating greater opportunities for our Ewing Family of employees,” said Douglas W. York, President and Chief Executive Officer.
