While my passion is the art of landscaping,
the completely satisfied client has become my greatest thrill.

My love of the outdoors has been a lifelong passion; from mountain biking to hiking to adventure skiing, being outside has always been where I best fit on the planet. My interest in plant life and all things growing outside began shortly after hiring on with a retail nursery organization in high school. As I watched and learned the business, I became fascinated by the complexity of nurturing various trees and plants. While working at the nursery, I was exposed to wide variety of landscape layouts and often found thought to myself how I might have done them differently. This is the point when I decided that my future should be in the art of landscape design.

After graduating from Purdue University with a degree in Horticulture and Landscape Design, I started my career with one of the north shore premiere landscape firms spending eight years managing crews and projects. This led to my desire to launch my own business; Griffin Design & Build based in Wadsworth, IL.

Through a lot of hard work and an intense focus on exceeding my client needs and expectations, my one crew developed into a rapidly expanding design build firm. Thanks to that expanding business, we opened a new facility in Lake Bluff, IL in the spring of 2008 where we continue to grow today.

While my passion is the art of landscaping, the completely satisfied client has become my greatest thrill. I love helping people create a vision, and I share their joy when that vision comes to life in front of them. Our staff of designers will be happy to help you understand your property needs and create a project plan that suits your tastes, needs and budget.
