About Ed Ferry
My name is Ed Ferry and I’ve been working outdoors for over 40 years.
I started with a local lawn care company while I was in 10th grade. After working for them for a year, I decided to quit and start my own company. I’ve been working for myself ever since.
In that time I went on to learn my way around irrigation, then gardening, then landscaping, and finally contracting, all with the help of some very talented and very generous people along the way. I also found the time to pick up hiking, fishing and golfing, and helped raise four amazing daughters.
For my latest venture, Exotic Gardens, I wanted to bring my 40 years of hands-on experience to the world of landscape design. I partnered with a brilliant landscape architect to create designs that are not only gorgeous, but also extremely functional. Everything from our lighting and hardscape to our plant choices and drainage are meticulously thought out to provide a safe, long-lasting, low maintenance, and sustainable landscape that will look just as amazing in decades as it does today. Working with only one client at a time allows me to be on site for each job, making sure that each design is executed on time and on budget, without compromising quality.
I think that everyone should enjoy the outdoors as much as I do. Exotic Gardens helps me make that a reality.
