The Mountain Meadow Team

Barney Brady

I am the team leader and majority owner of MML. I began landscaping professionally in 1982 in the Southern California region. Training under some veteran tradesman, I learned how to set up building sites, plot homes, as well as landscapes.

As a horticulture student in the late 70’s, I had the opportunity to manage a greenhouse and work as a lab technician for Glendale Community College. My academic background is in all types of biology with emphasis on Botany and Marine Ecology.

When I began Mountain Meadow Landscape in 1983, I promoted California native plants. I designed fire resistant hillside landscapes in Los Angeles’ urban wild-land interface. I felt accomplished when I was acknowledged as L.A.’s “Top Xeriscaper” in 1990.

Moving on to Seattle, I learned new ways of working with nature. I spent several years in commercial building maintenance becoming certified as a Steam Engineer. I learned about the connection between buildings and surrounding environments/landscapes. Positive drainage is a fact in the rainy northwest region. I always employ the most effective types of drain systems available from this experience in perpetually wet environments. Studying theoretical design and observing landscapes on the West coast of our country, has helped me understand what works best in most landscape cases.

I have been Designing and Building gardens in the Sonoma County region since springtime 2000. I value working with people who care about their environment. As you engage me as your Landscaper, I anticipate a fruitful relationship will develop achieving your goals. Part of my process for crafting a landscape is outlined on the design process page. The other part is in our connection!
