Meet the Crew

Mandi Hoyt-McBeth, Owner, Landscape Contractor + Designer

The desire to combine creativity and working outdoors led me down a new career path after 10 years in the nonprofit world as a fundraising and communications manager. Equipped with a certificate in landscape design, I founded Habitat Gardens in 2009. I love working with my clients to create beautiful gardens and outdoor living areas. My approach to landscape design is a collaborative effort, one that blends my experience and plant knowledge with my clients’ individual tastes. As a licensed Landscape Contractor, I also have degrees from Iowa State University in Communications and Environmental Studies.
