Meet Our Team – Mike Osborne

Mike osborne photoThis month’s Meet Our Team feature is Mike Osborne,  Aspen’s Landscape Manager, who’s been with us since 1999.

Most of you would know Mike if you’ve ever asked us for an estimate or some ideas on sprucing up your landscape – Mike’s the guy who usually comes to visit.

He’s extremely knowledgeable about what he does, and is always looking to learn about new plants and new techniques to serve our customers.

Mike also works hard to make each landscape unique and not just a cookie cutter copy of someone else’s yard – and he always exemplifies the Aspen positive attitude!
