Who We Are
Who says things don’t get better with age? With over 37 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 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 second location in 2009, which was 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. You can now find us at our permanent location at 5350 Miller Trunk Highway, Suite C, Hermantown, MN.
