Charles “Charlie” William Herndon was born on May 31, 1942 in Kings Mountain, NC. As a child, Charlie loved the outdoors and dreamed of one day being the business for himself. He later met and married Frances Owens Herndon and had three sons.
After buying a used 1952 Ford tractor from an uncle that was retiring from farming, Charlie’s dream came true. In 1967, he and Frances founded Herndon, Inc. After being located in Kings Mountain for years, the Herndon’s decided to move their business and family to South Carolina and eventually settled in Lugoff in 1980.
As Herndon, Inc grew, so did their ambition. They were proud of their work and were always yearning to keep up with the fast-growing landscaping market. Their expertise in Hydro-seeding and Erosion Control laid the foundation for what is now a thriving business. As of result of their dreams and ambition, Herndon, Inc. has become one of the leaders in the Hydro-seeding and Erosion Control industry in South and North Carolina.
