We all know someone like our founder; a green thumb, a natural organizer, with a penchant for wit and a natural when it comes to customer service.
From the earliest days (and we’re talking a long time ago!!) Grant has had a knack for gardening, and neatness. In fact, when he was 10, he discovered the uniqueness of snapdragons. From that first summer season, and the multitude of colours that were produced, he’s been hooked on gardening and making front yards look good.
He quickly understood the nature of soils, how to make them better and quite by chance discovered that last years plants can easily become this years mulch! Always arguing with his parents about cleaning up the leaves in the yard, he would happily ride over them again and again until they were just little bits of leaf scrap. When his father caught him raking those bits into the garden, instead of making him rake them up again, he decided to just leave well enough alone. Of course, we know that those leaves ended up producing bigger blooms, healthier plants, and even more seeds. That summer led to a lifelong interest in all things green.
