Landscape Inc.

Birchwood Landscape has been owned and operated by Bob and Shannon Howard since 2001.

Bob has 30 years experience in the landscape industry.  He started at 16 years old working for a local landscape company throughout high school.  Bob later went on to Ferris State University where he obtained a ornamental horticulture degree and completed a certified nursery certificate from the Michigan Nurseryman and Landscape Association (MNLA).  Bob also recieved a business degree from Ferris State University.  After living and working in landscaping in Grand Rapids, MI for a couple of years after college, Bob was eager to return to Northern Michigan.  In 1995 he started a job as property manager for a local businessman in Harbor Springs and later that same year met his wife Shannon.  They married in 1997.  In 1998, with the backing of Bob's landscape knowledge and experience, his boss started Birchwood Farms Landcape Company.  Just a few short years later, in 2001, Bob and Shannon purchased the company from him and shortened the name to Birchwood Landscape Inc.
