Starting his first job at 14 years old at a golf course, Nate learned working hard for your money is very prideful and rewarding and hasn’t left the green industry since! From working at greenhouses, tree and shrub nurseries, Nate took a job landscaping and fell in love with the trade at the age of 18. After going to Dakota County Technical College for horticulture, Nate has worked for commercial, residential and eco friendly landscape companies and by age 20 was a foreman running his own crew. With his knowledge and experience, Nate decided to start his dream of owning his own landscape business, and in 2009 started Elegant Landscapes LLC. Devoting unbelievable hours to his customers and business, Elegant Landscapes has thrived into the business that serves you today! In his free time Nate enjoys hunting and fishing and spending time with family and friends. He is also a father to one beautiful daughter and two filthy mutts.
