|We’ve been growing trees since 1988 and haven’t stopped! A deep interest in all types of plants grew into container production of trees, shrubs and perennials along with the establishment of our retail nursery. We love meeting people as they come into the nursery and helping them to find just the right plants for their project. Outside of the business, we enjoy the canoe country in northern Minnesota, the outdoors, our pets and spoiling our seven grandchildren!|
Heidi Brosseau – Retail Manager, Certified Nursery and Landscape Professional
|I’m here to assist you with your plant selections and any other questions you may have. I have been working with Leif and Deb as well as the rest of our terrific crew since 2002, and enjoy being outdoors and working with the plants and helping our customers. It is my goal to make sure you go home with the plant material best suited to your application as well as the knowledge you will need to see it off to a healthy start. If you are new to our nursery, I look forward to meeting you and getting to know what your gardening / landscape needs are. I may forget your name, but I’ll probably know what plants you have chosen on previous visits!|
Amy Voight- Landscape Designer, CNLP
|I have a passion for landscape design and love bringing my designs to reality in the yards of my customers. I enjoy nothing more than to spend time in my own gardens with my 3 boys. I have been designing landscapes for many years, having received a degree in landscape design and horticulture. In 1998, I received my Certified Nursery and Landscape Professional designation.|
|I started here at Knecht’s in February 2005. I’m a graduate of Northfield High School and Dakota County Vo Tech. I enjoy working with people, being outdoors. I look forward to every job — whether large or small! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, motorcycling and bicycling.|
|My name is Gabby. I actually run the show here at the nursery. I have people stop in and ask for me by name. Anyone that brings me a doggie treat (a real doggie treat, please — they don’t let me eat people food) and plays ball with me, becomes my new best friend. I am here at the nursery anytime that my humans are here. I love it when you scratch behind my ears! Hint Hint. Woof!|
