Who We Are
Sam Whitney, Owner and President
After obtaining a B.S. degree in Ornamental Horticulture from Michigan State University in 1977, Sam Whitney worked in several nurseries and obtained an Advanced California Certified Nurseryman’s status before beginning a gardening venture in 1984.

Since then the company has continued to grow with 25 employees including an exceptional Administrative staff, Installation team and Design team.
