Our Story began when Tony Farruggia Sr, originally from Buffalo, New York, came to Tucson when he was offered a job to build a wash at the 49ers Country Club. However, this wash never developed due to permitting. So, Tony started trimming trees and fell in love with the Tucson weather. This lead Tony to start doing landscaping, cleanup and drainage work to provide for his family. In 1984, Tony Sr. started Tony’s Construction. He started by collecting rock, all by hand, out of Sabino Canyon with one old brown dump truck. He then incorporated this rock with concrete, which became known as grouted rip rap.
