Zak brings a blend of practical know-how, artistry and vision to the work he does. Whether it is the attention to detail put into a planting design or the additional effort and ingenuity for a trellis installation, he does what it takes to create beautiful, high quality work.
Zak has loved plants since he was a child, growing up with oak prairie in his backyard. He has a familiarity with the plant species of Western Oregon that goes beyond his formal education, (a botany degree at OSU), and has worked as a field botanist for a variety of nonprofits, institutions and agencies. He has considerable experience as a landscaper and is a licensed landscape construction professional.
Zak carefully selects Plantzy’s team who share his philosophy and high standards while bringing their own gifts to the company.
