Who We Are

Who says things don’t get better with age? With over 31 years of Residential, Cabins, Lake Homes and Commercial Property Landscape Design / Build experience, Miller Creek has gained the knowledge, creativity and experience needed to produce the right solutions for your landscape and lawn care needs.

You have a style that’s all your own – unique and individual. That’s why we use products, exclusive brands and expertise to perfectly suit a space that complements you and your home and all the while being environmentally responsible. Every Miller Creek project begins with a consultation session with a designer, who will help shape the layout and design of your new landscape to ensure the finished project is exactly what you’re looking for.


As a kid, Troy grew up with a passion of being outside. Troy Grohsman started Neighborhood Yard Care in 1987, in his teens, which was then incorporated in 1995.  As each year went by, we were able to offer more products and services to our clients, allowing us to grow into the company that we are today.  As we grew, we moved to our permanent location in 2009, which is right next to the Miller Creek tributary.  And since we don’t do work in just the “neighborhood” anymore, we changed our name to Miller Creek Lawn & Landscape.

Our Team

Troy Grohsman
CEO / Senior Designer

A true outdoor enthusiast, Troy started the company with not much more than a lawn mower, a couple of shovels, and the determination to build a company himself. Now, over three decades later, Troy has built his company into three divisions of Design. Build. Maintain.

Natasha Strand

Natasha ensures that our operation runs smoothly and efficiently. You will find Natasha in our main office, working with clients, placing orders, preparing Quotes, keeping up with safety and OSHA regulations and managing our operations.

When Natasha is out of the office, she enjoys spending all of her time with her family, which includes her 6 year old son and 2 year old Golden Retriever, Ragnar, doing outdoor activities and playing at and on the lake.
