He can do the same for you.

Larry Franzen

Larry is one of our newer landscape designers to join the team but his roots run deep in the green industry.  He helped his mother and father run a nursery business.  During this time he learned many things about horticulture but as a young man found a passion for real estate.  He spent much of professional life in that business but has found his way back to the green industry.  He loves talking about perennials, shrubs, trees, and creating attractive inviting spaces.  Larry is in the store most fridays and through the weekend to listen to your ideas and look at the pictures you bring in.  He is ready to bring your ideas to life.



Kyle Lemke

Kyle is our newest designer who just joined the team this season.  He is just finishing his double degree in horticulture and landscape design.  He will begin his design career by assisting our other designers with computer aided designs and listening to your design ideas as an in store designer.  Kyle has a few years of landscape installation experience as a crew member and crew foreman.  You will love to get to know Kyle as we have.
