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.

~A well trained team is currently being built, with others who shares Zak’s/Plantzy’s philosophy and high standards, as well as bringing their own gifts to the company.
