We are happy to introduce Ben Kallgren to our Wimberg Staff. Ben will act as manager of our numerous maintenance teams: managing their schedules, consulting with you, our clients on issues that need addressed in the landscape, offering onsite instruction, as well as helping our crews anticipate issues before they occur, ensuring your landscape is healthy and attractive.
Ben joins Wimberg Landscaping after an extensive career in landscaping and related industries. Joining a local landscaping firm out of high school, he began work as a crew member and after three years transitioned to a crew leader role. Ben was attracted to Wimberg’s focus on natural gardening practices, such as our steadfast promotion of pollinator gardening. In a previous position Ben performed ecological restoration tasks such as elimination of invasive species in parks, installation of rain gardens and bio swales and cells, as well as implementing erosion control methods such as live staking and brush layering.
“I have always had an interest in improving the environment by mitigating our negative human impact,” reflects Ben. “I wanted to join Wimberg Landscaping because I knew it would be a great opportunity with a well-established and respected company that is constantly growing. I was impressed and drawn to Wimberg’s emphasis on outstanding customer service and ecologically responsible methods of landscape design and maintenance.”
Ben’s work experience and knowledge will allow him to contribute a holistic approach and understanding to landscaping: enabling our clients to achieve their desired landscape while supporting our native ecology. “I‘ve had a love for nature for as long as I can remember and I’ve fostered a desire to make nature more accessible to everyone by bringing nature and natural gardening practices to their own backyard,” shares Ben.
Hobbies: Creating chainsaw sculptures and benches and helping people in whatever way I can whether it be with their yard, moving, or a DIY project.
