David Tylus


David is originally from Michigan, and served 8 years in the Navy.  After his military travels took him to Japan on the USS Belleau Wood, and to Naples, Italy, San Diego, and Beaufort, David finally settled in Charleston.  He graduated with a BS in Business Administration from the College of Charleston.  Prior to starting Weed Man, David worked as a golf professional at Patriot’s Point, Rivertowne Country Club, and the Daniel Island Club.  He enjoys riding and taking apart (and successfully putting back together!) Ducati motorcycles, as well as dirt bike riding on the Wambaw trail in the Francis Marion National Forest.  He spends his free time with wife, Ashley, and their daughter. 
David’s favorite weed?  “Vetch because it’s the easiest to kill!”

Freddie Long | Sales Manager

From Fort Mill, South Carolina, Freddie graduated from the College of Charleston with a BS in Business Administration. Working as a part-time employee for three years with Weed Man allowed him to gain valuable knowledge of our lawn care principles and practices. We are very excited to see this knowledge put to work in our Sales Department.  Prior to Weed Man, Freddie was an employee at Waterford Golf Course in Rock Hill. During his free time, he enjoys playing soccer, exercising, taking beach trips, and watching his favorite sports teams.
Freddie’s favorite weed? “Black Medic because it is a natural indicator that means it’s time for an aeration!”

Josh Walker | Production Manager

Josh hails all the way from Hanahan, SC, and graduated from the College of Charleston with a BS in Business Administration.  He worked on the golf staff at the Daniel Island Club, where he specialized in customer service.  Josh enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and his four-legged children.  In his spare time, Josh enjoys golfing, fishing, or just enjoying the outdoors.  He is also very active in his church and community. 
Josh says his favorite weed is “dollar weed because before working for WeedMan I thought it was the hardest weed to control.  Now I realize, for us, it's actually one of the easiest."

John McDonald | Lawn Care Technician

John is originally from Jacksonville, Florida, and has been in Charleston since 2005.  He attended St. Augustine Tech where he studied horticulture.  He enjoys reading classical literature and gardening in his spare time.
John’s favorite weed is Florida Betony because the tuber resembles a rattlesnake rattle!
