Meet the Team

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.”

 

 

 

 

Tracy- Garden Supply CoTracy- Annual Buyer/Container Designer

Tracy comes to us all the way from Ft. Lauderdale. After cultivating a love of gardening during two and a half decades under the Florida sun, Tracy now embraces the warmth and vibrancy of the four beautiful and unique seasons each year that North Carolina has to offer. Tracy specializes in container garden design and is entering her second year as our annuals buyer. Her goal is to find the top plants for our unique area, and just as is the case with her own garden at home, Tracy brings to Garden Supply Co. the ever-shifting color of the leaves and a love for the visual poetry that is a well-designed container.

Tracy- “It’s not work if it’s your passion, and this is mine- making the world beautiful one container at a time. Stop by, and let’s get some art in your yard.”

 

 

 

 

 

Brittany- Merchandise Manager/Assistant Buyer     5_8_08 1215

 
Bachelor of Science from East Carolina University with a double concentration in Apparel Merchandising and Interior Merchandising

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.”
