Matthew Noel- Landscape Designer
Bachelor of Science from NCSU in Landscape Design & Horticulture
Certified Plant Professional & member of NCAN (NC Association of Nurserymen)
Matthew brings his special skills to landscape design, focusing on creating outdoor rooms and spaces that allows one to reconnect with nature. He specializes in combining hardscapes with plants, balancing and complementing one another in a way that becomes first functional, then whimsical and delightful.
Matthew Noel- “What I love about working at Garden Supply Co. is that it truly is unique to be able to walk a client through a design in the nursery, showing the plants and giving them a chance to digest and have some visuals as what to expect versus throwing them head-first into a design with 30 different plant names and telling them, “Trust me – you’ll like them.” It takes so much of the pressure off of the client.”

Brittany- Merchandise Manager/Assistant Buyer
Having always loved art and aesthetics, Brittany knew she wanted to spend her days where she could work hands-on with design. She began her career in the colorful world of interiors, merchandising and designing for local furniture boutiques and clients in Greenville, NC. From there she managed at Bevello, a high-end clothing boutique where she found her passion lay in styling for fashion shows and especially creating floor sets. After making the move to Raleigh, NC in 2011, she landed the position as Designer at Garden Supply Company.
Brittany- “I love that Garden Supply is the perfect canvas to be creative. There is always a change to make on the floor from painting walls to constructing seasonal displays. It is truly rewarding to see the look on our customers’ faces when they see a new display and get inspired to re-create a look at home. That’s what shopping should be all about, gaining inspiration in the shopping experience.”
