Paul Meyers was born and raised in Johnstown, PA, a small town in the western mountains close to Pittsburgh. As a young teenager, Paul started to develop an interest in architecture and would often spend time studying home blueprints from magazines. Eventually, he started doing his own drafting and designing of home layouts and how they connected to the outdoor spaces associated with them. This eventually led to Paul applying to the architecture program at Penn State University with dreams of becoming an architect. During his freshman year he took a class on the history of Landscape Architecture and fell in love with the idea of designing outdoor spaces and how they related to the built world of architecture. This was when he decided to become a Landscape Architect instead!
Upon graduating from Penn State with a Bachelor’s of Landscape Architecture, Paul moved to the deep, rich, historical city of our Nation’s Capital, Washington, DC. He found the exciting world of residential landscape design while employed at his first job working as a draftsman/ apprentice with a landscape design firm. After working with this company for only a few short years, he took the exciting leap and went into business on his own. In March, 2004 he started PM Garden Design Inc.; where he specialized in residential landscape design and; installation.
For 12 years, PM Garden Design grew and became one of the leading design firms in the Washington Metropolitan Area. He gained experience in designing, computer drafting, project management, crew supervision and client relations. During this time he was not only designing and supervising his own projects, he was also designing and collaborating with 5 other leading landscape firms in the area!
After vacationing multiple times in Florida, Paul became interested in expanding his design knowledge to include the exciting world of tropical plants! Paul took yet another exciting leap and relocated to the Tampa Bay area. His passion for creating outdoor garden rooms and building a better connection between the home and the landscape is now expanded to the native plants of Florida. He greatly enjoys the transformation of outdoor spaces to beautiful, relaxing private gardens that meet individual client needs. He is excited to be part of the Wilcox team where native plants not only play a part in beautifying our outdoor spaces, but also creates a better habitat for Florida wildlife!
