About Us

Welcome to the world of Greenland Landscape
& Masonry!

We have always been “hands on” contractors; some even say that we spend too much time on the job.

Marta Garland, President, registered landscape architect, and Mike Garland, secretary/treasurer, structural masonry contractor, incorporated the company in 1983 and dedicated our work to creating beautiful landscapes and gardens in the Atlanta area.

You work directly with the landscape architect from your custom project design through the finish of the project build.  We love to return and do updates to the initial project, such as planting flowers or adding a patio or fountain.

Many of our clients live in their homes for decades and call us back periodically for landscape updates.

About Mike and Marta Garland of Greenland Landscape Masonry 1

Our goal is to offer you creative and practical solutions, and to get the work installed employing our skilled masons and landscapers and using quality plants and materials.

Marta grew up on the west coast and earned a degree in landscape architecture from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, in the ’70s.  She always loved nature and rode her bicycle through the parks and beaches of San Diego and Beaux-Arts, a suburb of Seattle.

Mike, an Atlanta native, worked in the nursery business and later learned the craft of masonry while hiring a stone mason from northern England who had traveled to Atlanta seeking work.

When Greenland Landscape & Masonry was getting started, we participated in the Atlanta Decorator Showhouse tour of homes, and later we were featured on HGTV show Groundbreakers.  Marta served as an officer in the Atlanta Chapter of the ASLA.

Now, empty nesters, we live in Danielsville, in northeast Georgia, with our two horses and dog.

Owners Mike and Marta Garland, with their team of craftsmen and landscapers, have been in business since 1982. We deliver a complete project starting with 3-D design and installation of both landscape and masonry. We serve northeast Georgia along the I-85 corridor from northeast Atlanta to Lake Lanier."

We are pleased to share the first time back in 2014 when we were mentioned in a prominent publication. Here is the original article about our relationship with a Church, helping them design and build a new memorial garden.
