For the last 28 years, Doug Grove has built a reputation in Northfield and the South Metro area as a versatile landscaper who delivers only the highest quality service and products to his customers. Established in 1983 with a shovel, a pick-up truck, and a wheelbarrow, Grove Landscaping has grown to cover every facet of home landscaping: wholesale, retail, landscape design, patios, retaining walls, water features & ponds, landscape installation, planting & pruning, and much more.
Doug’s landscaping philosophy has always been to create spaces that make people feel comfortable and welcome. The journey that a visitor makes from the curb to your front door should be not only aesthetically pleasing, but also warm, welcoming, and natural. With over over 35 years of experience, Doug’s favorite part about his business is working closely with people to achieve their goals, and he loves to involve the customer closely in the process of creating the perfect home landscape on any budget.
Originally from Tipton, Iowa, Doug graduated from Iowa State University in 1972 with majors in horticulture and landscape architecture. Soon after, he moved to Minnesota and eventually chose Northfield to start his business because he and his wife, Mary Jo, loved the town and the people there. His family often teases him that with a name like Douglas Gardner Grove (no joke), Doug was born into the profession.
Doug and Mary Jo are the proud parents of four children, all of who grew up in Northfield: Steve, Kelly, Matt, and Mary Beth. Doug and Mary Jo are active in the Northfield community and their church, and the couple loves spending time outdoors.
