A Word from Our Owner
Ever since I was a little kid, I've always had my hands in the soil, helping out in my parents' vegetable garden, greenhouse, and ornamental gardens. As an adult, I continued to cultivate my personal interest in gardening and landscaping at my own homes. A reconnection with a local Sarasota girl brought me to New York City in 2010 and we were married in 2011.
While in NYC, I developed an interest in and awareness of the growing residential energy efficiency sector and very soon took the opportunity to go to work for one of the leading firms in that field as an account manager, helping to market and administer a large energy efficiency program from the major utility company Con Edison. It was an interesting job, but all along was feeling a pull toward the outdoors.
It was actually a recently-installed green roof at our office in the Bronx that got me thinking about a change. I began researching the green roof and living architecture movement and came across an organization that offered training and certification. I received my GRP (Green Roof Professional) certification and began looking for a company in the city doing that kind of work. I had the opportunity to meet a landscape designer who was teaching a course through the New York Botanical Gardens and she let me know they were looking for new staff.
I was hired for the field crew and after awhile honed my skills and was able to demonstrate my creativity and professionalism on the job site. Soon, I was given the opportunity to manage several high-profile residential and commercial sites throughout New York City, running small and large crews for new plantings, seasonal change-outs, and regular garden maintenance. Working on jaw-dropping penthouse rooftops and in enchanting secluded townhouse backyards, it gave me access to incredible spaces and expansive views. It was challenging and exciting work, but I loved what I did and I enjoyed the collaboration and teamwork I had with everyone at the firm.
In 2015 we moved back to Sarasota and I started Oasis Gardenscapes. Over the last five years I’ve completed dozens of unique gardening and landscaping projects for both residential and commercial clients. My reputation locally for beautiful lush living wall installations has grown over the years and is the primary focus of the business now. Let me bring my experience, ideas, and dedication to help you create your ideal outdoor oasis in Sarasota.
