Mark Farrow

COO
In 1983, Mark Farrow was working for a local moving company.  At the time, Julie and Mark were friends and Julie needed some “braun” to lift some plants on an install.   She asked for help.  After the job was complete, Mark found the nearest payphone, called his boss at the moving company, quit his job, and joined Plantscapers.   The rest was history, as Mark now serves as our COO.

Mark’s day-to-day responsibilities includes managing the overall operations of the business, including our installation and holiday departments, warehouse inventory, green wall installations, as well as a strong contributor of employee morale and training.   He is the point person on our team that ensures that we have a well-oiled and successful operational structure.

On weekends, Mark can be found playing tennis, golfing, or watching any sporting event, including his favorite team, the Baltimore Ravens. One of his biggest joys is spending time with his grandson Dakarie.

Michael Healy

Operations Manager
Michael Healy has had a love of plants for a long time. As a young boy he would often go with his mother to work where she maintained indoor greenery for many companies. He observed her helpful and positive attitude towards all her clients and learned early on the secrets of customer service and the power of a smile.

His solid experience managing projects across the United States for over ten years has been a perfect fit for us. High-profile customers such as Wells Fargo Bank, Chase Bank and other financial institutions made up Michael’s daily client list where he successfully improved each company’s efficiency and profits.

The skills he perfected over the years are now put to use every day at Plantscapers. He oversees and manages many key facets of our company from customer service, purchasing, and running our Horticulture department; to working directly with our employees, vendors and clients. Michael maintains a positive presence with everyone through his clear-cut communication which seamlessly connects every aspect of our operations into a smooth, efficient and prosperous company.

Michael finds time to hang out at the beach and surf the waves. He also loves to snowboard, scuba dive, swim, travel and enjoys good times with friends and family. During his years at Woodbridge High School, he honed his teamwork skills playing defensive end for the football team. Today he is a huge fan of the Minnesota Vikings.
