Once upon a time...
On a balmy July evening in the summer of 2005, a curly haired boy biked up to a girl sitting outside a cafe in downtown Minneapolis. Some serendipitous combination of extreme humidity and romantic infatuation temporarily shut down the boy's better judgment centers and he suddenly stopped his bike and told the girl that he thought they needed to know each other. By some minor miracle, she agreed...In short order the boy and girl fell fast in love with each other and fast out of love with their indoor desk jobs. Flush with the confidence of love, they rekindled the gardening business that the girl and her sister had started while in college. They tacked up homemade flyers around the lakes in Minneapolis, took out a long-term lease on their parents gardening tools, and Landscape Love was born.
Much has changed since that first season; we've gotten married, traveled the world, planted hundreds of gardens, created dozens of patios, earned a master's degree, and given our parents back their, ahem, borrowed tools. But the heart of Landscape Love hasn't changed...we still believe, as one of our very first clients told us, that "being creative is creating the life you want to live." We love living this life full of dirt under our fingernails and sunshine on our faces. But more than that, we feel lucky and grateful for every opportunity we have to add more love and life to people's homes and outdoor spaces. It is a great feeling to watch not just the gardens but also the relationships with the many people and families we've been fortunate enough to work with continue to blossom and grow!
