Our Roots...Ream Design LLC was founded in 1999, based on a life-long passion for horticulture. Equipped with only a single truck, then freelance horticulturist Sally Ream, grew the company based on trust, integrity and the relentless commitment to providing quality work. Even though the scope of the business has changed through the years and new business systems have been implemented our process has not. Our roots are still deeply based in horticulture, we believe in a team approach and our commitment to quality work is the foundation to our success.
Our firm is comprised of a group of motivated and imaginative landscape professionals with backgrounds in landscape architecture, landscape construction, turf grass management and horticulture. Our staff of designers, project managers and horticulturists allow us to build gardens that conform to individual wants and needs.
