When Bradley joined the crew of Roanoke Landscapes some 18 months ago, he brought with him a plethora of experience and expertise in a variety of fields, from his service in the military to his life-long interest in gardening and plant ecosystems. As a child, Bradley grew up working with plants and gardens at his parents’ home in Illinois. In 1998, after two years of community college, Bradley joined the U.S Marine Corps and served five years active duty. Afterwards, he completed a Bachelor’s of Science in Geography at Illinois State University. At school, he fostered an interest in biogeography and the study of the distribution and relation of plant species and ecosystems. His passion for biogeography and the science of plant life has aided him in his career as a landscaper.
After moving to Roanoke several years ago, Bradley began working as a commercial landscaper for Prestige Acres Landscaping Inc. In February of 2016, he joined the team at Roanoke Landscapes and quickly moved forward in the company, mastering skills such as landscape maintenance management, pruning, and installations. Currently, he works as our Property Manager and supervises two full mowing crews. During his time in Roanoke, he has made himself an invaluable company asset by earning career course certifications from Virginia Western Community College and earning his Commercial Pesticide Application License.
In his free time, Bradley enjoys reading about gardening and plants. He is specifically interested in plant origins, plant interactions with one another and with human habitats, and host plants for pollinators such as butterflies and moths. Knowledgeable, friendly, and confident, Bradley helps make Roanoke Landscapes the award-winning company that all of our clients know and trust.
