Matt joined the Millcreek team in February of 2015 as our Quart Perennial Coordinator. He arrived with over 13 years of experience working in the Green Industry where he first began as a landscape maintenance technician. Over the years he moved his way up to Landscape Crew Leader where his projects focused primarily on high-end softscapes and low voltage lighting systems as well as irrigation systems. He also had experience as a grower and production manager and has owned his own Landscape and Design company.
In the Fall of 2015 Matt was promoted to Section Grower of our Annuals and Succulents. As we have continued to expand our product offerings, in the Fall of 2017 we debuted our 3 Gallon line of Shrubs and Proven Winner Shrubs, which Matt now grows as well. In 2022 we have fine tuned our product mix and have discontinued growing succulents to allow more space for Matt to grow more beautiful annuals. He is responsible for plant care and maintenance, maintaining plant availability, and ensuring crop health throughout the year. His excellent growing skills produce the best annuals and shrubs you can find anywhere!
Outside of work Matt enjoys spending time with his 17-year-old son, Sawyer, going to OSU games, riding his bike, and eating pizza!
In 2020 we celebrated Matt’s 5 year anniversary with Millcreek!
