We have quite a staff on board. The owners, Ray, Stacy, their three kids, Ryan, Seth and Abigail. Ray has been in this business all his professional life and just about all his personal life too. His first job as a teen was at a greenhouse operation. After high school, he attended horticulture school in Chicago, then returned to Maryland, managing both landscaping projects and propagation programs.
Ray joined Ball Seed Company as a Sales Representative and during his time on their sales force, he learned about the opportunity to purchase the business here. Stacy, as Vice President, has an integral role in the operations of the business; from our advertising and marketing to employee payroll and benefits.
She takes an active role in our community programs and can often be seen assisting our customers in the greenhouse or the Gift Shop. It’s really a family affair. Ray’s parents, and his plant-crazed, exuberant aunts take an active part in the business as well.
It’s very common to see Ray Sr. riding the tractor, Ray’s mom Sandy setting up a product display, or one of the aunts running the cash register in the retail shop. The Greenstreets work hard to cultivate not only plants but the warm, friendly atmosphere patrons expect from a family business. The rest of us consider ourselves extended family and bring various backgrounds to the business.
Whether you deal with our retail managers on what plants would do well in your outdoor space or you are helped by one of our high school staff loading mulch bags in your truck, we all are committed to providing the best customer service to go with our high quality plants and products.
