  • Dave Ryan Landscaping Nantucket is the result of 2 Companies and 2 Lives.

    Dave Ryan (Ryan Landscaping) and Moira Walsh (Green Mansion Gardens Design) met on Nantucket Island about 20 years ago. At that time, Dave and Moira were both Nantucket landscapers during the day and worked in the Restaurant business at night. Dave was a Chef of 25 Years and Moira worked in Fine Dining establishments and met while working dinner service at The India House Restaurant.

    Dave and Moira connected with their daytime work and ended up helping each other with Nantucket Landscaping and Gardening and Moira continued to design the gardens which they were contracted to create.

    The night and day work went on for some time until they realized that their abilities, (Moira a graduated Artist from Massachusetts College of Art, and Dave, the creative Chef), would best be utilized in the light of day designing, creating and maintaining green living works of art.

    The merger of companies and love led to marriage and two beautiful sons. Owen and David Jr. Owen, now at University of Maine in Forestry, and David going into high school is actively involved as a Naturalist at the Maria Mitchell Science Center in Nantucket. Both young men work with Mom and Dad and help out with some of the Nantucket lawn care in MA whenever possible. Dave Ryan Landscaping Nantucket has grown substantially over these years and is well known for beautiful landscapes and timely well planned maintenance service.
