- Amy Friedly
A Master Gardener with a flair for the dramatic, Amy brings a collaborative approach to design, a background in art, and a natural feel for stonework to the Spotts team. A graduate of Miami of Ohio in sociology, Amy spent several years as a probation officer; she says that wrangling recalcitrant plants isn’t all that different. In her own garden, Amy’s love of cottage style is evident in quirky found objects, homemade benches, and the burbling pond that combine to create a welcoming atmosphere. Amy is a firm believer in outdoor living, treating her garden as an extension of her home and an ongoing art studio of ideas.
- Andy Hall
A transplanted Englishman, Andy Hall is Spotts Garden Service’s expert on all things mechanical. Andy grew up in Liverpool, went to sailing school while still in high school, and spent several years as an engineer on private yachts. When he’s not gardening and building gorgeous trellises and other garden features for our clients, Andy is studying for an engineering degree. In his own garden, he focuses primarily on food gardening in raised beds, experimenting with the most efficient way to maximize production in small spaces.
- Doug King
Doug has worked for Spotts Garden Service for ten years and in that time has moved several mountains of compost, mulch, plants, and stone. Doug is highly valued on the Spotts crew for his strong back, work ethic, peaceful demeanor, and wonderful sense of humor. A graduate of Ball State, Doug is a professionally accomplished actor, choreographer, and director. He shares our passions for being outdoors, working hard, and working smart, qualities reflected in his own garden.
- Amy Mullen
Amy graduated from DePauw University with a degree in physics, a lifelong love of theatre, and a problem-solving style that combines the approaches from both those fields. A Master Gardener and long-time communications professional, Amy conducts gardening seminars and blogs about gardening in addition to her work with Spotts. Deeply interested in issues of sustainability, Amy treats her own small garden as a combination playground, mini-farm, and ongoing experiment. She designed her front-yard food garden to integrate a traditional potager aesthetic with permaculture principles.
- McKenzie Spotts
McKenzie attends the University of Cincinnati and is eying a career in business. His early days at Spotts were spent pushing a lawnmower, but the past few years have found him becoming more and more involved as both a gardener and decision-maker. His mechanical aptitude has made him invaluable in many of our installation projects, and his keen interest in earth and how we treat our planet assists the Spotts crew as we strive for sustainability.
- Terry Spotts
A lover of earth, plants, and the outdoor world, Terry founded Spotts Garden Service in 2002 with the idea of bringing personal attention to both gardens and the people who own and enjoy them. Growing up in northeastern Indiana as the son and grandson of floral shop proprietors instilled in this lifelong organic gardener a fascination with plants and how their beauty affects our lives. A graduate of IUPUI with a degree in biology and an Advanced Master Gardener, Terry has a passion for shrubs and ornamental grasses. His garden aesthetic emphasizes tying the home to the earth with gardens that are interactive and interesting in all seasons.
