Meet The Team

Michael_SchoenMichael Schoen – Owner & Founder I have been landscaping for 25 years, working with top level landscape/pool design groups and garden centers all my life. This has enabled me to feel comfortable with any project. I will work with you through the entire project as I take great pride in keeping in touch with my customers. Landscaping has been my passion as long as I can remember. Bringing yards to life with beautiful patios, water features and landscapes will always bring a smile to my face. I will bring the same passion when creating your custom landscape. Customer service and satisfaction will always be my main goal.

The Crew


Before We Meet You

We realize one of the most important parts of hiring a contracting company for your project is trust. No matter how great the portfolio, it all comes down to…

1. Will the company show up on time and be conscientious in their work?

2. Will the owner of the company be on site and make sure nothing gets damaged?

3. Can I trust the company to complete the job and not run off with my money?

I’d like you to know a little more about us so that we can begin to earn your trust even before we come out for the estimate. Family of Monkeys

Michael and I (Michelle) have lived in the suburbs of Atlanta for most of our lives. Michael grew up in Sandy Springs and Michelle group up in Smyrna. We met in our early 20s and we have been married for 22 years. We, currently, live in the Bridgemill area- off Sixes Road in Canton, GA (very close to the new Outlet Mall).

Our kids (holding the monkeys above) are Danielle (16) and Joshua (15). And, like a crazy person, I’ve been homeschooling both of them. Danielle just started taking some college classes at Chattahoochee Tech and Joshua is our computer wiz and has been teaching himself to program apps for Androids.

In addition to helping with Atlanta Landscapes and Pools, I’m also a Virtual Assistant specializing in adding video company websites. And that’s how I met Leslie Keffler (also a Virtual Assistant and our Web Designer).

Larry Steppe and Michael have been working together doing landscaping since their late teens. In addition to loving working outdoors and creating masterpieces for homeowners, they are both big classic muscle car fans and love restoring old Mustangs. But Michael’s ultimate dream is to win the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas and every July he flies out there to give it one more shot!

The photo above was taken on an extended family cruise trip to St. Kitts and we call it “The Family of Monkeys”.

We hope getting to know us a little better will help you feel comfortable having Michael come out for an estimate to design your perfect landscape feature or pool. And you can feel assured that we are a family business with deep roots in Atlanta and are here for the long haul!
