Our company was founded by William & Birute Ziogas. As a trained agronomist from Lithuania, William established Parkland Nurseries as a retail garden horticulture center and thriving landscape business. Following in her father's footsteps, Jurate became one of the first women to practice Landscape Architecture in the mid 1960's. She created relationships with local builders, and further grew the company into the landscape, design and build business it is known for today.
