Who We Are


Matthew Ashby

Matthew, our founder, discovered his love of gardening while living in a Seattle farmhouse with a large unloved garden. Meticulously, he brought the garden back to life and found the cathartic power of digging in the dirt. Upon moving to Florida, his curiosity of  gardening in a more tropical climate led him to the University of Florida where he pursued an education in professional gardening.



Daniel is a retired local realtor and restaurant manager who shares Matt's passion for plants and pursued his formal education in gardening from the University of Florida as well.  He shares Matt's eclectic and unique design sensibilities. Dan has a multitude of skills including lighting design and irrigation repair.



Michael is Marine veteran  who's skills include gardening, carpentry, masonry, and stonework.  He has a fond love of animals, the outdoors, and is a perpetual student in honing his craft.
