Nick’s interest and dedication to the green industry was “grafted” back in 2006 during a student exchange program “Work & Travel”. While working on a grounds crew at an upscale camp resort of New England, beside a “Golden Pond”.

With determination to turn career into a lifelong passion, Nick’s promise is to provide garden friendly services with attention to all technical aspects of everyday gardens.
