Kevin Runyon, your personal Pro, will visit your home to learn about what’s important to you in your outdoor area. He’ll use your vision to create a plan taking into account water management, yard topography, and functional use of the space.
Once back at the office, Kevin will create a custom PDF booklet with your plan including elevation design, materials list, supplies and plants, detailed installation instructions for beds and plants, along with maintenance tips.
Say goodbye to measuring distances between planting holes and arranging for trucks to pick up supplies! If you choose DIY with Delivery, the team will pack up the necessary materials needed for creating the landscaping beds and deliver them right to your home.
When your flora is in stock and your beds are complete, Kevin will bring your live plants over and place them directly on the beds they should be planted in so you know exactly where to plant them.
Your Landscaping Pros
The “Grass” part of their name is very simple, Kevin started his journey in the industry by mowing grass. The “Roots” part is a little deeper. Owners Kevin and Michelle Runyon have learned through the years how important it is to “always remember your roots.” It’s life’s journey and experiences that make you the person you are today and by remembering our “roots”, we learn from our past and stay grounded in who we really are.
Their story began in 2000 as Kevin, owner of Custom Creations Landscaping & Lawn, started mowing lawns as a side business in high school to support himself through college. Through the years Kevin realized his interest was rapidly growing to include landscape design and construction, as well as plants and turf health.
Together Kevin and Michelle opened Grass Roots Garden Center and Gifts in 2018, working side by side to get high quality, cutting edge plants and professional landscaping supplies into the hands of homeowners and local landscape contractors.
Kevin continues to design and build beautiful landscapes, give design tips, and educate customers on proper plant care and placement.
Michelle manages the store, stocking seasonal home decor, unique plant pots, a curated selection of gifts, and custom-designed apparel. During the planting season, she hand selects the best ornamental trees, native flowers and shrubs, fruit trees, and every other kind of plant you can think of.
