Owner and Lead Designer
Since the age of 16, Greg has been working in the outdoor industry. He moved to Richmond in 2001 to attend the University of Richmond and, after college, went into business for himself. Greg is the owner of Outdoor Dreams and lead designer on all projects.
As a designer, Greg prides himself in his versatility and appreciation of various design styles. He draws inspiration from classical styles found in southern cities like Richmond, Charleston and New Orleans as well as the contemporary trends found in Colorado, Oregon and Northern California. Greg appreciates his diverse clientele that allow him to engage his own wide-ranging tastes and appreciations.
Born and raised in Mechanicsville, Geoff began his career in the outdoor industry at the age of 15 cutting grass for neighbors and friends. He went on to operate his own company successfully for the next 23 years, eventually expanding his business into landscape construction. Geoff came to work for Outdoor Dreams in July 2014, where he manages all project construction for the company. He is certified with the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) as a Certified Concrete Paver Installer and the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) as a Certified Segmental Retaining Wall Installer.
As a builder, Geoff has a passion for transforming the outdoors into livable spaces. He enjoys the unique challenges that each new project brings and takes pride knowing that it will be enjoyed by the client for years to come.
"Our experience with Outdoor Dreams has been amazing from start to finish. We are fortunate to have chosen Greg and his team to complete our outdoor dream which includes a kitchen area, dining area, and fireplace, including landscaping and lighting. We just hosted 20 people for Thanksgiving and we spent more time outside by the fireplace (it was 32 out) than inside. From the first meeting with Greg it was apparent he had a unique talent of listening to our ideas and creating design options to match. He created hand drawn color renderings of what our patio might look like and it felt like it came to life before us. His use of social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Houzz helped us get comfortable that his company was real, and working on many other similar projects. Which gave us the confidence that he had the experience that we wanted to partner with for our dream patio. He is a builder, artist and designer all in one. His crew (Geoff, Andrew, Eric) worked hard including thru the rain with tents to build our dream. They showed up every day, on time, and kept the place in order. They had a can-do work attitude, were extremely meticulous in measuring over and over to get it right, cutting, placing, and redoing it if needed. They were very kind, friendly and earned a new friend in our dog Hunter, who oversaw their work as the family foreman." I will recommend to anyone Outdoor Dreams. I would add more stars to my rating but 5 is the top. We will be using our outdoor dream for years to come.
