Founding partner Wayne Buchanan started the company in 1993. Today, he oversees the lawn treatment division of Purple Care. He is constantly working with experts in our industry to improve our programs, and he creates the weed control and fertilization programs we use in the field. Wayne lives with his family in Azle, on the same property where he grew up. He has been married to his wife Emily for over 30 years and they have 3 boys. When Wayne isn’t working, he loves bass fishing, hanging out with his wife and doing anything with his boys. If Wayne was a flower, he would be one known for being tough and tenacious: the daylily. Daylilies prosper in inhospitable environments and have an uncanny tolerance for a variety of soil and light conditions. Their secret to enduring adversity lies in the botanical adaptability of their flowers and roots.
