The Full Circle Solutions Team


Jonathan Hawes


Jono, as most people know him, grew up in Albuquerque and worked for the previous business owners. He was offered the opportunity to take over ownership and changed the name to Full Circle Solutions in 2008. At this time, it was solely a pond cleaning business and struggling due to the stock market crash and subsequent real estate burst that followed but Jono was up for the challenge. Coupling years of experience working on ponds, his father's lessons in home maintenance and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from UNM, Jono brings a unique flare to Full Circle Solutions and his eye for beauty and experience with naturescapes lend itself well to the design and construction of ponds and gardens. World traveler and lover of all things nature, Jono will envision and take that vision through to completion on any home and garden project.  

Paul Krueger


Paul joined Full Circle Solutions in March of 2009. A Wisconsin native with a passion for the Green Bay Packers. Upon joining the team, Paul had 15 years of irrigation and 7 years of pond construction and care experience. He is a pleasant and outgoing guy that prides himself on working hard and doing whatever it takes to get the job done.   

Lee Krueger


Lee's specialty is welding and his experience has come in handy for building fences and gates for both residential and commercial clients alike. In addition to welding, Lee attended the Savio Water Feature Institute and earned a certificate in Pond & Waterfall Construction upon program completion on July 29, 2011. Lee hails from Wisconsin as well just like his brother Paul. They chose Albuquerque for its mild winters and beautiful terrain.   

Samuel Pacheco


Sam is a third generation landscape professional. Learning from his grandfather, Sam acquired the skills and talent to do his job well. His specialties include trimming and shaping bushes & trees, mowing, landscape design, and spring/fall yard clean-up. Sam is very receptive to the customer's needs and fulfilling requests with minimal direction.

Dylan Star-Jenkinsen


Dylan, an Albuquerque native, has a background in carpentry. In his former experience, he was a boat builder in Maryland and constructed houses in Southern New Mexico. Upon moving back to Albuquerque in 2012 and joining the Full Circle Solutions team, Dylan has excelled in all aspects of landscaping.

Barbara Phillips


Barbara has a Bachelors Degree in Accounting and thirty years of related experience. She relocated to Albuquerque from Oklahoma in 2014 and started with Full Circle Solutions in May of 2014. Barbara keeps the office in-check and makes sure that it is functioning properly.   



Zachary is new to the Full Circle Solutions team but he has learned very quickly. He has a positive attitude and enjoys assisting on all Pond & Landscape projects. 



Vida is also a new member to the Full Circle Solutions team and she came on board just in time for the busy Spring & Summer seasons. Hardworking and ready to assist on all home improvement projects, she is not afraid to get her hands dirty.  

Guard Dogs


No team is complete without pets. In addition to several dogs that live at the Full Circle Solutions headquarters, we also have chickens and a rooster that are known to wander the streets of Downtown Albuquerque and neighboring businesses. While little Leo, to the right, can be feisty, all of our pets are trained and domesticated.
