“Creating different landscapes comes from a desire within to be the best. Anybody can landscape; we take pride in being the best.”
James A. (Jamie) Faltz, President & Owner
In 1981 Jamie came to Alaska as a 3rd generation landscaper with a rich family history of nurserymen and landscaping professionals. His grandfather was a charter member of the Florida Nurserymen and Growers Association starting in the 1950’s and was instrumental in establishing standards for nursery plants in Florida that remain in effect today. In Alaska, Jamie worked with the best landscaping leaders of the region until he decided it was time to continue his family legacy and establish himself as the standard for the highest quality of work available. Through hard work and the desire to provide the finest landscape installations, Jamie’s work resulted in a reputation that reflected his dedication. His love for plants and a goal to offer the best plants to the people of Anchorage lead him to open a retail plant nursery. The nursery has grown into the largest nursery in Alaska open to the public and it continues to provide the best plants for everyone from home gardeners to large commercial and governmental projects.
Jamie is involved in every aspect of the nursery and landscaping divisions. His drive is solely to provide integrity and creativity that meet his high personal standards for his clients and customers. Landscaping is more than just plants, it involves looking at the big picture and making sure that all parts form a pleasing, satisfying whole that suit your particular needs. Jamie always looks at the broader perspective in order to enhance outdoor living spaces through natural stone features, like patios, and well-placed garden beds.

“Taking a landscape space and turning it into a place that is desired and craves habitation is my sole objective with every project.”
Benjamin Brown, PLA
Trying to make money in college, Ben and a friend decided to mow lawns. Through his small business, he found himself re-connecting to a wonderful time when he crawled on his hands and knees planting bulbs beside his mother, an avid gardener, and lover of all things green and fragrant. Fast forward a couple of dozen years, Ben is now a licensed landscape architect, still connecting with the brown earth he unconsciously fell in love with as a child next to his mother’s trowel and gardening gloves. For Ben, the opportunity to design landscapes with the people who actually live on and love their land is more of an honor than an occupation.
Along with his love for landscaping, Ben has the following accreditations, education, and accomplishments.
• Master of Landscape Architecture & Urban Planning, Architecture Emphasis, Texas A&M University
• Bachelor of Science, Engineering Technology, Design Emphasis, University of Alaska Anchorage
• American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) member
• CLARB Certified Landscape Architect, licensed in the states of Alaska and Texas
• Gene Schrickel Jr. ’50 Endowed Scholarship in Landscape Architecture recipient

The stellar reputation of Faltz Landscaping is one of the reasons she joined the team and is looking forward to many more summers in the nursery.
