Fockele began the company in 1990 after working as an attorney for 10 years.

“I always enjoyed working on projects and in the garden,” he said. “And at that at point in my life, I wanted to find work that incorporated the pleasure I experienced in doing landscape projects. I’ve enjoyed developing relationships with clients and helping them build a garden and landscape they desired. I can step into retirement knowing Julie will keep the company moving forward and growing.”

“It has been an honor to work alongside Mark for the past 20 years and he will be greatly missed. We will continue to focus on the qualities that have made the company successful for three decades,” Evans said. We work on projects of all sizes and budgets and provide all services with our own staff. We listen to what our clients want then work hard to make it happen. We spend a lot of time working out the details, so our customers will have a satisfying experience and result.”
