In 1991 Robert Drost and four others decided to embark on their own doing what they loved. It was the start to Drost Landscape. It has grown from a small group of guys working out of Bob’s house to a facility that can handle the large volume of material, equipment and people that come and go on a daily basis. From a pickup truck with a few shovels, rakes and wheel barrows, there are now greenhouses where both annuals and perennials are grown, a large fully stocked nursery, heavy equipment that can tackle most any job, a fleet of trucks to move people to and from job sites, and a multitude of small tools, including those shovels, rakes and wheelbarrows. Today you will find Bob’s two sons, Travis and Dustin, as well as Bob’s brother, Gene working in the family business alongside as many as seventy others.
To this day Bob will tell you his hobby is his business. Landscaping is his hobby and his business is a result of that passion. On any given Saturday or an evening of the week, there is a good chance you will find Bob meeting on site with a potential client, or stopping in to an existing clients site to check up on progress or just to ensure that everything is well maintained. There is not much else Bob would rather do that what he has a passion for…Landscaping.
Along with Bob’s passion, Drost Landscape was started on the foundation of a work ethic taught and shown to him in his childhood years. Now Bob passes that on, not only to his two sons, but to all those that work with him. The many people that make up Drost Landscape comprise a group of educated, skilled and trained staff mostly broken into their areas of expertise.
Hard work, honesty, attention to detail and a passion for what they do is the difference customers see and what has brought Drost Landscape where it is today.
