Colin began his career at Kirkwood Material Supply in 2003, in the yard at our Kirkwood location, building and utilizing his hardscape knowledge and experience. His love for plants led him to Kirkwood Gardens in 2006 while he was completing his associate's degree in Horticulture at Meramec Community College. In 2007, as a Horticulture grad, he took the position as Manager at Kirkwood Gardens.
Colin has helped the nursery’s crew, property, and reputation, develop and bloom over the last 6 years.
