Boston Organic Turf Landscape Management & Design
Hello. My name is George Gannon. I am the owner and operate of Boston Organic Turf. We provide fine gardening, landscape/garden design, seasonal container displays, and landscape installtion to our clients. Each of our properties have their own unique landscape/garden needs which we tailor to the properties. We look forward in helping you achieve your dreams for your property.
I have had a love of gardening since I was a child. I love the colors, textures, and fragrances that gardens can provide. I truly enjoy the design work where I can walk onto a property and visualize what the garden would look like when adding planting that help the property stand out. My second enjoyment while working is being able to teach my clients about plants and care for the gardens.

How did you get started in this business?
I worked for many years with a larger turf management company. They at the time did not have an organic lawn care program so began Boston Organic Turf.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Over the last few year I have had the pleasure of working with a commerical resturant providing seasonal container work for thier patio in Chestnut Hill. I love seeing my designs come together. I provide maintenance to these planters and it gives me pride when people come to see the planters or even take pictures infront of them. I enjoy creating beauty for all to enjoy!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
I am always a supporter of knowing your own strengths and concentrating on one area than a who bunch of areas. I work with many other companies that are skilled in their own profession and rely on them for their expertise.
