You could say that horticulture is my passion. From the early age of 13, I began working during the summer doing landscaping for people in our area. I did this right through college at Oregon State University where I studied business, horticulture, and landscape design. While at college, my dad opened up Four Seasons Nursery, as he, too, had always been passionate about plants. After college, I worked in the business with him and in 19 took over the operations. I’ve been working here for 25 plus years.
What I enjoy the most about this business is that I create positive, lasting relationships with my customers, employees, and vendors. In addition, I enjoy creating successful, meaningful landscapes for my clients.
In addition to the business, where I spend most of my time, I am an avid woodworker and woodturner. I also enjoy landscape design and bonsai.
I live in Eagle Point with my wife, Lisa. I have one son, Brandon, who works in the business with me and two daughters, Amanda and Brittany, who also worked in the business in the past.
Favorite Plants: Redbud tree – which is colorful, diverse, and unique. Daphne shrub – reminds me of my dad as he was a grower of Daphne for many years. Columbine – a very unique perennial flower.
Memorable Moment: One of my most memorable moments was to create a landscape for a customer whose mother was on home hospice. The view from the mother’s window was created to be a peaceful, beautiful setting for her final days.
